A Great Weekend of Martial Arts Training

I just got back on Sunday from yet another awesome event hosted by my good friend, Michael Miller, from Bradford, Pennsylvania. I went to Bradford on the Saturday with three of my students: Matt Trejo (2nd Degree Black Belt); John McDonald (2nd Degree Black Belt); and Chris Newsome (Blue Belt). All of us had a blast.

The day started out with a 90-minute seminar by Sean Kelley on Links and Parallels of self-defense techniques. We warmed up by going through Short Form 2 a couple of times, and then got into Circling Wing. We grafted Circling Wing into Crossing Talon. We also went through Five Swords with the extension, and Mr. Kelley paralleled this technique to Lone Kimono.

In the second seminar, Bill “Superfoot” Wallace taught us how to create openings in sparring using kicking techniques (primarily, the lead leg roundhouse kick, hook kick, and side kick). Mr. Wallace taught us important footwork drills so as to not telegraph the kicks before executing them. We also worked the lead hand jab in various ways. The seminar went for two hours, so it was great workout.

The last seminar on the Saturday was with Sean Kelley, and we had the opportunity to work various “problem techniques”. Mr. Kelley went through Spreading Branch and also showed a neat graft from Shielding Hammer into Spreading Branch. We also went through Circle of Doom, and Mr. Kelley finished by showing a category completion of motion between Falcons of Force and Spiraling Twig.

After a great day of training, we all went out to the Beefeaters for a great dinner and chat. We stayed there right until close, and then Matt, John, Chris and I finished the night by watching the UFC at a bowling alley of all places.

Keep posted for the next big CKF event in London, Ontario, November 27-28th. At this event Mr. Sean Kelley will be teaching 3 adult seminars, and 1 child seminar. More information to follow soon!
