    Video Review by Dan Anderson Locking Techniques Vol. 1&2 by Dieter Knuttel

    I recently got a chance to view these videos and I must say I am impressed. I have always felt that Dieter Knuttels joint locking skills were very underrated.

    Remy Presas Memorial Training Camp & Black Belt Hall of Fame - Philadelphia 2013

    I wanted to announce that John Bryant, recently deceased, is going to be posthumously inducted into the BB Hall of Fame this summer in Philadelphia. This is a wonderful way to honor him. He founded the first Modern Arnis school in the United States and was the first instructor of Tim Hartman...

    John Bryant, R.I.P.

    John Bryant passed away today at 1:00 pm. I have been in communication with John over the last 3-4 years and did know about his condition for some time. He had colon cancer. He was nothing but a role model for anyone undergoing cancer, unflappingly upbeat and positive throughout. For those...

    My daughter passes her Black Belt test!

    Yeehah! My daughter, Amanda, passed her black belt test this last Saturday! It was interesting putting her through a rugged test (she puked twice...well, to be accurate, dry-heaved) but she acquitted herself very well. Her teacher and her daddy are both proud...split personality at times...

    Presas Arnis

    Tim, I've noticed your signatory is Presas Arnis and in the Modern Arnis Minute segment #4 your belt has two very broad stripes on it, which is the same as what SGM Ed Parker used to denote 10th Dan. Could you give us a rundown of what Presas Arnis is and how it differs from Remy Presas...

    Roots

    Okay, this isn't FMA or Modern Arnis but I just put up a video of me doing some forms I learned ~40 years ago. These are from Kongsu, a pre-taekwondo style taught in Korea prior to unification of the kwans. Not so bad for an old buzzard...except for Sipsu (my worst kata). Enjoy...
