Held at the:
Popkin-Brogna Self Defense Center
686 Dogwood Avenue
Franklin Square, NY 11010

$175 both days $100 for Sat. only. Due to the material covered there will be no Sunday only attendance.

This was an invitation only closed seminar. I wasn't going to advertise this. Due to the ever increasing pressure of repeated request, (and because some of my people have offered to help) I am going to allow a few new people to attend.
Please note* I am really not interested in a one time meeting. If you do not have the means or ability to continue training, then I prefer not to even start.

This is part of a continuing series of seminars with people that have been training with me.

Materials Covered:
Methods to build the body frame to neutralize and cancel many of the foundational "principles" that are used in the Martial Arts to throw and lock the normal body frame.
How to learn to move from the center to negate telegraphing and to disrupt an opponents own body placement.
Understanding how body segments and then the whole body, can be used to create aiki effects on contact.
How these translate to weapon work to neutralize weapons at the point of contact and go right through
How to use the breath to support the body

Dress will be sweats or shorts and T-shirts. No Gis, No budo affiliated T-shirts please. This will be very informal, and casual, but I strongly urge you to bring a notebook.

Anyone interested may contact Dan at homeoffice@charter.net.
Do not contact the Popkin-Brogna Self Defense Center directly. Your application will be politely refused, and you will be redirected to contact me.

My sincere apologies to those interested for the late notice, I've been sick and just too busy to get the notice up. Please save the chastising comments for P.M.

Thanks

Three weeks sooner! That's quite a change. I thought it was going to be a week before or after. Woe is me.... another missed chance.

I'll be in the states at the end of October. I guess I will just have to roam around the states looking for seminars... :(
