My workshop had a good crowd for 8am today, about 20 people showed up to learn about martial arts and self defense. Zoomed through drills and techniques from JKD, Silat, Savate, Muay Thai, Capoeira and FMA....brief talk on self defense and I was out of time. My favorite moments were when the Hawaiian family from my Polynesian Games workshop on Wednesday showed up. All four kids were dressed out in there Karate Gi's and belts, and at the end they all came up to me, the two older boys bowed and shook hands. When the little girl came up I bowed, she bowed...then came up and hugged me! Cutest thing ever. Check out the photos below to see the workshop. Thank you to Tom Parry who was my reluctant assistant and photographer!!
8am tomorrow I shall be teaching on the beautiful Kahuku Terrace at the Turtle Bay Resort of North Shore Oahu, HI. My class will be "Intro to Martial Arts and Self Defense" I am going to attempt to show/teach 7 different arts (JKD. Silat, Savate, Muay Thai, Capoeira, FMA and Hapkido) in 50 minutes....possible?
My intention is to show all the different bows and salutations and a simple drill from each one, then go over basic self defense tips....no time for messing around. Wish me luck :)

June 16th I will be presenting to the Southwest Regional American Alliance for Physical Health, Education, Recreation and Dance on Children's Martial Arts & Wellness. My presentation will include the first couple of episodes of a new documentary that I am Co-Producing with Greenline Mixed Media Arts. We will release the documentaries to the public one episode at a time in July.
I am having fun learning how to build this new website. If you were a visitor to the last one, you will be excited to hear about the new features coming soon to this one. New video footage and photos, special access ninja pages, purchasing through paypal and more...
Please check back regularly as I plan on getting alot of material up soon. My goal is to have a fully functioning website by June for my trip to Hawaii to present about Children's Martial Arts and Wellness.
