Some Big Upcoming Events

Sorry for my long delay in writing on my blog. I have been very busy in life. In martial arts, I have been training harder than I ever have. I have not missed a single day yet in 2010 of putting in some hard, consistent training (some of the days as long as 4 hours of training time). I have also been teaching a lot more than normal, particularly in the quantity of private lessons. I also hope to have some new weapons video clips of me up on YouTube soon, particularly once I am satisfied with how I am moving with them.

In the meantime, I wanted to let you know about a few big events that are happening soon that I highly recommend:

(1) May 8-9: A long-time friend and fellow tournament competitor of mine, Simon Sherbourne, will be hosting a seminar with UFC legend Royce Gracie in London, Ontario, at Wilfred Jury Public School. I had the opportunity of training with Royce Gracie at Simon’s first event in 2008, and it was one of the best jiu-jitsu seminars I have ever attended. For more information about this event, or to register, please email Martha Sherbourne at:

(2) May 14-15 Break Thru Event 2010: This event will feature “dynamic, live international speakers and worship artists impacting an amazing multi-generational audience”. The keynote speaker is Nick Vujicic, a man born without arms or legs. Nick has traveled to over 19 nations sharing his testimony and his faith in Jesus Christ. The event will take place at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium, and I am honored to be one of the speakers and presenters at the event. For more information, please see the following website:'sComing.html

(3) May 21-23: My good friend Michael Miller will be hosting CKF President Sean Kelley for some Kenpo Karate seminars at his school in Bradford, Pennsylvania. I will be there and will be bringing some of my advanced students with me. The training and knowledge gained at these events is incredible. For more information about the event, or to register, please contact Michael Miller by phone at: 814-368-3725.

(4) November 5-6: I will be bringing my instructor, and CKF President, Sean Kelley to my school in London, Ontario to conduct Kenpo Karate seminars. This event is open to all martial artists of all styles. For more information, or to register, please email me at: or contact me by phone at: 519-472-6321
