Hey everyone I am sorry I haven't been blogging lately, I have been super busy sorting things out for my future plans, I have some exciting news that I would like to share. Number one I will be in Auckland the first weekend of October  doing seminars the whole weekend, still got to sort out where abouts we will be but hopefully I'll sort that before its too late. I'll be looking at self defense principals which is a subject dare to my heart. Covering insecure holds, secure holds and ground escapes. I'll try to come up and few times before the end of the year and will let you know when and where the next set are also.

Secondly I am looking at doing a hitch hiking tour of the country next year for a whole year, going from town to town meeting groups to train with for at least 2 months, interviewing how martial arts effects peoples lives and seeing the similarities in all styles, cos the theory is we all do the same thing, only the intention or purpose changes, the principals are all the same. I'll be funding this tour by teaching self defense to the general public but mostly being a martial bum.

Ok so Ive been trying to sort out my hitch hike around the country, when a very rare opportunity came my way.  I will be holding off my tour of the country in order to train myself. Because in May I will be going to India to learn one of the oldest styles of martial arts still practiced Kalari payattu!! 

For those of you who have never heard of it Ill show you a link, but it is crazy and hard out and I've been stretching every day  so I can keep up.

Back in action

Hello people of the martial world 

I am back in the land of the net and ready to blog . At this point in time I am preparing to leave for the India where I will be training in the oldest style of all eastern Martial arts. My preparations include making the money to fund my travels with some seasonal work (this week apple picking), conditioning my body for the training by way of yoga and capoeira (flexibility is the main focus) and working on making my 24kg backpack that has all my worldly possession into a 15kg without getting rid of my guitar and having enough clothes to be socially acceptable.

The hike!!

So way back last year I had an idea of how to promote self defense to all. This involves making a nation wide hitch hike, stopping in as many towns as I can, teaching self defense (not martial arts) to the public and training and profiling Martial arts teachers as I go.

All this will be done through the magic of you tube and  weekly blogs on this site. IF you know of any groups who would be interested in having me please let me know!
