I am teaching group of Karate students in Essen Germany. They are very focus on learning. I came back years later and the had improved a great deal, so none of my instruction went to waste.
I was commissioned to train/teach Tai Chi Chuan to these executives of American Express as a bonus for their hard work. We are in a winery in upstate New York and I don't drink. Ha
These students are Karate and Jujitsu students leaning Modern Arnis. We are in the Bavarian Alps, great training.
training my all womens class in Force 12 which is an all womens program designed to take the most effective Arnis/Kaki/Eskrima techniques and simplify them so that any women can use them with extreme effectiveness. They meet once a week on Sundays from 3-5
This was very special , I am teaching stick fighting to advanced Black Belts from six different countries the lowest rank was a 3rd degree. I felt very honored that i was selected to attend the event and to instruct them. they were represented by Germany, Italy, England, Spain, Poland and the Swiss all of them belonging to an international Jujitsu Federation. They picked up very quickly.
This was a grea deal of fun. It wasn't difficult teaching them becus Wing Chun is like the sister art to Arnis, so is Kenpo Karate.
NOW COMES THE REALITY OF FULL CONTACT NO MORE THEORY ON WHAT IT MAY BE LIKE. NOW IT BECOMES UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL, WHEN A PERSON IS TRYING TO TAKE YOUR HEAD OFF WITH EVERY STRIKE AND THEN WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOUR TOTALLY EXHAUSTED. THIS WILL TEACH YOU TO DIG DEEP FOR THAT FIGHTING SPIRIT TO PUSH ON. I LOVE IT.
The one thing I appreciate is how people from other countries are serious about learning anything to do with martial arts. Here are a group of Hapkido students learning the finer point of Arnis. I also took the opportunity to fight all of these students and fun was had by all.
Here I am at a Muslim school. In the backgroundyou will seeboys onone side and girls on the other. I am translating empty hand methods from stick moves. This was a special time for me to be around all of these kids ho are dedicated to learning my art. I really feel blessed for the opportunity.
This i the first time my teacher Grand Master Remy press meets my students in one place. All of them have gone on to do great things and have exceptional careers and in this picture two have past away.
The student represent the under belts from several countries. They didn't mine any inconvience as long as they could train it was a hot day.
All of my students have gone on in their live to accomplish great things personally and professionally which is a sign of a good teacher. I wish that they all continue on the martial path of life.
Stick fighting means nothing if you can not fight with it. Here I'm teaching fighting principals. I also made it a point to fight everyone in the school one right after another. It was incredible for me as well as the students.
Here I am conducting a stick fighting seminar in Myrtle Beach S.C. for the Dragon Society. Mos of the people here are pressure point experts who have at one time or another studied with my teacher Grand Master Remy Presas. I here to keep his legacy alive.
