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


Excitement Forthcoming This Weekend

Posted in Wednesday Update with tags , , on December 3, 2008 by Dan Amerson

Wednesday Update this week is the short edition. I’ve only been back from vacation three days. As I’ll note, I’ve spent it diving through emails. I don’t have any exciting work items to discuss.

  • Vacation
  • Martial Arts Demonstration

Days Off Equals Work On

I took a few days off from work before Thanksgiving. I had a great time vacationing at Lake Oconee. I splurged and spent a couple of days on the club level of the Ritz there. I had a great time. The only problem with taking time off is that coming back to the office just equals more work. I still haven’t caught up to all the email that accumulated over three days. I hate email.

Breaking Things

I don’t talk about my martial arts much despite the blog description, but…

This weekend, my dojang is giving a demonstration here in Raleigh. Everyone should come check it out. We’ll have the black belt candidates doing a demo and arnis demonstrations from Master Bullock. I’m planning on possibly a weapons demonstration and a breaking demonstration. The demonstration will be at Stonehenge Shopping Center on Creedmoor Rd. around 3PM. It’s part of the holiday festival, so there will be things going on all day. Come on out, get some shopping done, and watch me shatter things. Can you ask for more?

I’m aware that you could ask for more, but it’s a rhetorical question. dba
