More Martial Arts

Posted in Martial Arts with tags , , on May 12, 2011 by Dan Amerson

I’m going to try to post more about martial arts and my training. There’s a new category for this if you just want to follow that information, and I have a dedicated Twitter feed for martial arts related stuff, @MasterAmerson. For those that take Arnis classes with me, that feed is where I’ll post status on Thursday night open floor workouts as well.

Suggestions on topics are welcome. 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
