Would you like to add functional stick fighting skills to your repertoire of martial arts training?

Now is your chance to fast track your way to a trainers certification under the auspices of the Kali Combat Association.

Supplement to your current martial arts training programs with functional performance based stick fighting no matter the style you currently teach or practice.

On April 7th you will get the opportunity not only to learn how to use weapons, but more importantly how to train and teach the fundamental techniques to become a skilled stick fighter by a highly accomplished instructor in stick fighting.

Guro Bryan "Guide Dog" Stoops is a professional educator with a doctorate in education and is a certified instructor of the Filipino Martial Arts in the Inosanto/LaCoste style under the legendary Guro Dan Inosanto as well as Sifu/Guro Bud Thompson (one of Guro Inosanto's "old school" full instructors from the original Kali Academy), and is a certified module 1 instructor in the Applied Eskrima method of Balintawak under master Virgil Cavada.

Not only is Guro Bryan an instructor in the Inosanto / LaCoste system and in Applied Eskrima, he has also successfully fought in just under 50 full-contact stick fights at the famous Dog Brothers' Gatherings, and is an official instructor of Dog Brothers Martial Arts.

What does this mean for you?

It means you get the benefit of training and getting certified under someone who has successfully applied and used stick fighting in high-pressure situations.

With so many resources and experiences from which to draw, Guro Bryan has created a full-day training event with the following question in mind:

"If I only had one day to prepare someone to fight with a stick, either for competition, personal development, or self-defense, what would I teach?"

For which his answer was to create and present a full-day training focused on functional weapons skills that can be cultivated in a very short amount of time.

While curriculum for the workshop is highly focused, each drill/concept/training method is very deep.

Participants will leave the workshop not only with functional weapons skills, but as Official Trainers in the Kali Combat Association.

School owners may officially teach this curriculum to their students, and participants may start official Kali Combat Association training groups.

This workshop is the entry level event into the instructor's training program with a unique association of instructors.

While most other stick fighting programs still focus only on teaching people the traditional approach to using weapons, we coach people to learn and coach a functional modern stick fighting program that is safe and designed for people who only train a few hours a week.

Not only will Guro Bryan teach how to apply stick fighting against resistance, you also get a system that honors the classical approach to honor those who have gone before you.

Sign Up Today and become part of the new breed of stick fighting instructors!

The price is $295. That includes future access to the members area once it's completed and ongoing support.

The seminar is available at a $100 discount ($195) if participants register before March 7th, 2013 at the following link:
