Training Method

When you begin your training, you will join the group and train as a team at the current point in the training cycle. You will be part of an amazing cadre of people, and benefit from their experience as you go. This vastly increases the pace you learn at. 

Start simple, increase complexity as we go. In my experience, advanced concepts can be simplified for anyone to learn. Couple this with repetition over the course of a month, and it allows you to capture a better understanding of the art, and gain advanced skills.

Once complete, the cycle begins anew; constantly repeating and reinforcing your skills. A majority of the material focused on in a particular phase, will show up in other phases under a different guise; providing you with increased exposure to each technique.

Cycles

Fundamentals

The single most productive area of focus that can influence our abilities, is fundamentals training. Unlike some approaches, where you learn a task and then leave it behind, in my training system we are always refining these fundamental skills.

 

Technical

The Technical Cycle is where we explore the elements that will define our art. Looking beyond the fundamentals to explore the depth and detail of fascinating techniques that fit our style.

Each topic branching out into a series of counters, and checks, and crossing over with other techniques you have encountered, helping to solidify those skills, and connect the dots.
