2010 Renaissance Martial Arts Festival Update

Just as an update, the first official flyer for the 2010 Renaissance Martial Arts Festival has been released. Again, if you have any reason to be in Rochester on the weekend of November 6th, don’t miss this seminar. It’s the 11th annual festival, and of the 6-7 of the previous ones that I’ve been to, every one of them has been excellent.

I was asked for two seminar descriptions for the festival, so depending on scheduling, I’ll be teaching either one or two sessions, sharing methods of taking opponents down to the ground based on two principles: where the head goes, the body goes; and the body cannot stand without its foundation. We’ll cover techniques and principles of head takedowns and leg takedowns, examining these concepts from as many perspectives as time allows.
