Hi, everyone – firstly an apology; I haven’t been posting for a while, due to various factors, but I am writing and will publishing more posts over the next few weeks.
Right now, I just wanted to issue an open invitation to anyone who has enjoyed reading my posts in the past: I am teaching on a joint seminar in London tomorrow, alongside Master Shamim Haque of Kalis Ilustrisimo Repeticion Orihinal, Grandmaster Tony Diego’s representative for the UK and Ireland. I’ve written in the past about Kalis Ilustrisimo and Master Shamim…well, now is an opportunity to see him in action and learn some of this incredibly effective blade art.
I’m going to be teaching Small Circle Jujitsu principles and techniques, concentrating on the Entries Module from the Small Circle Concepts Programme created by Prof. Leon Jay (the 2nd Generation Head of the system) and myself, and relating it to Kalis blade principles. So if you’d like a taste of Small Circle Jujitsu and how to apply its techniques in a smooth flow from a knife defence to an empty hand strike and on into a lock flow, then come along and join us. If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ll know that I consider Small Circle as the ultimate arrest technique, so if you’re in security or law enforcement, this is an ideal event for you to attend.
You’ll find all the details posted on my Facebook page, The Martial Arts University page, and that for Kalis Ilustrisimo UK. Please note that due to a mix up with the venue administration, the times of the seminar has been changed to 1 p.m. to 6 pm. Grandmaster Prof. Leon Jay will also be attending, so this is your opportunity to also meet someone who, as an old colleague mine put it, is ‘martial arts royalty’!
Apologies for the short notice. Hope to see you there,
