His mastery is in being able to develop and teach the offensive, defensive and strategic application of any kicking technique.
Series is about developing your kicks to their full potential and making your newly acquired repertoire of kicks an integral part of your fighting vocabulary. As they say 'knowledge is power'. The more knowledge you acquire in any subject the more power and confidence you'll have in it. The tools, techniques and application from my 45 plus years of experience will give you an edge whether it be for training fighters, prize fighting, street self-defense or for serious martial arts enthusiasts." The Art of Kicking is under utilized in the MMA world but is now starting to emerge. Having spent my entire martial arts career kicking, my understanding of this range is second nature and my ability to apply the most sophisticated kicks in the MMA arena is my niche.
Who would benefit from the Women's Empowerment Basic 1
Workshop? Any woman that wants to gain more confidence in her ability to defend herself and in her ability to deal with her surroundings. There is a consciousness shift that happens when we learn that we are physically capable of protecting ourselves, our bodies and minds become powerful tools, not only for protection but also for personal growth. If you've ever wanted to learn how to apply simple yet potentially lifesaving hands-on self-defense techniques as well as to strengthen your personal feminine power the Basic 1 Workshop is for you.
The Self-Actualization thru Women's Empowerment Basic I Six Week Course is a unique women’s self-defense & empowerment program that views the mind, body, emotions and spirit as equally important components to develop for personal growth and physical safety.
Most of us were never taught how to use our bodies effectively to protect ourselves and/or our loved ones. Many of us think that due to our age, physical limitations or fitness level we can't learn to defend ourselves, but nothing is further from the truth. Regardless of our perceived limitations each one of us has the ability to learn how to be more physically self-reliant, effective and confident. There is an important paradigm shift in consciousness that happens when we realize that we are more powerful, resourceful and resilient than we thought.
This program is about prevention and redemption. The focus is on understanding our bodies and their needs through mindful movement, proprioception exercises, self-release work, breath and understanding.
This class is open to adults from beginner levels to advanced levels of physical fitness. It is a foundational course created to help the student develop or recapture greater physical vitality and strength through developing greater mobility, balance and breath. While the work we will do is beneficial at any stage or fitness level, one need not be in prime shape to participate in this class.
The inner-child may also be referred to as the subconscious mind or the Unihilipi. Most of us have never given it (inner-child) a moments thought. We live our lives immersed in external stimuli and spend little to no time to check-in with our inner-self.
Being neglectful of our internal state of affairs is deterimemtal to our physical and psychological wellbeing.
Our subconscious is responsible for the function of the involuntary systems of our bodies. It also holds all of our memories, experiences and thoughts from the beginning of our creation. The concious mind is generally unaware of the workings of the subconscious yet it (the conscious mind) is directed and sustained by the the subconscious.
