Dr. Nick Chamberlain Workshops Thursday June 9, 2011

by Sensei Moncreaff on 06/07/11

I am so excited to announce we will have a visit from Dr. Nick Chamberlain this Thursday, June 9th, 2011.  Dr. Chamberlain was my original martial arts teacher back when I started training at age 8.  He taught me until he moved to Texas when I was 18.  I recently began training with him again and this will be his second annual visit to our Academy.  He is an amazing teacher and martial artist and still inspires me today just like he did when I was 8 years old!

I hope you will all join us for his workshops.

For Karate Kids ages 7-12 the Workshop will be from 5:00-6:00 PM and the fee is $20.

For Teens and Adults the Workshop will be from 7:15-9:15 PM and the fee is $25.

There will be time after each workshop for autographs.

See you on the training floor!

Lock Flow Class

Tuesday night the teens and adults worked on a lock flow to help with mastery of the essential methods of locking the wrist, fingers, and shoulder.  Great job everyone!!!

In a future class we'll study elbow locks and I also have a special lesson planned on ankle and knee locks.
