“The Orlando Martial Arts Meetup Group”

It is a always a great time when I make it over to see these folks and they have been kind enough to allow me to run another seminar. See their site for more information.

Our instructor for this event will be Mr. John Wilkerson. He has been in the martial arts for nearly 30 years and has spent the last 12 teaching Hapkido. His background includes: Hapkido, Tae Kwon Do, Arnis, Shorin-Ryu Karate, and Aikido. He teaches in Lakeland, Florida.

The cane is a dynamic and easily learned defensive weapon than can be carried in society without causing alarm. This three hour workshop will cover several basic strikes and blocks for defensive cane use.

The student should expect to practice 4 to 5 striking techniques and defense blocks.  And a couple of locks/takedowns will be included so the student can also see how the cane can be used for opponent control.

If you have never worked with the cane and experienced the raw striking power a short piece of wood can deliver, you will be uniquely surprised by its versatility and ability to control a situation.

*Additional canes will be provided.
