Upcoming Knife Self-Defense Seminar

Posted in Martial Arts with tags , , , , , on October 25, 2011 by Dan Amerson

I’m excited to announce that Master Eric Bullock and I will be hosting a knife self-defense seminar at Ladd Family Martial Arts in a few weeks. Here are the details, and a link for the flyer.

I’ve been studying the Filipino martial arts with Master Bullock for some time, and that was my inspiration for this seminar. They’ve been an amazing complement to Taekwondo and now Tang Soo Do as primarily empty hand arts. Working with the cane and knife in Arnis classes has opened up a whole new set of techniques and knowledge. It’s something I wanted to share with folks. If you’re studying at a school in town, please come out and train with us on November 12. It will be a great learning experience and a lot of fun.

If you have questions or plan to attend, please get in touch using the contact form on the right.

I’ll see you on Nov 12. dba

I don’t blog about my martial arts too much, but there’s a very exciting event coming up. Ownership has changed at my dojang, and we’re having a grand opening next weekend on September 12. If you’re in the area, come on down to see the new changes.

The dojang is now owned and operated by Master Jason Ladd. Here’s the website. Master Ladd’s background is in Tang Soo Do which is the primary art taught at the school. There are also supplemental programs taught by other instructors in the following areas. From 10AM to 12PM, we’ll have tables set up with all the instructors available to talk to you about their programs.

  • Tai Chi
  • Isshinryu Karate
  • Okinawan Weapons
  • Arnis
  • Judo
  • Brazilian Jiujitsu
  • Zumba Fitness

This is a great opportunity to come meet all the instructors at one time and get a feel for what type of martial arts or fitness program is right for you. I guarantee that we have something you’ll love.

If you’re lucky, we may even do some cool demos like the picture above. dba
