    Kali/JKD Benefit Seminar in Bellevue, WA
    August 23, 2015

    Datu Kelly Worden Benefit Seminar

    Seattle FMA/JKD Fan’s. This is a great opportunity to get some awesome training with some great people and support a great cause! Please consider SHARING this event to get the word out.

    As I posted a couple weeks ago Datu Kelly S. Worden is going to be slowing down a bit in teaching due to some lingering injuries from some bad automobile accidents and the ensuing insurance/medical nightmare. Choosing the path of a martial arts instructor leaves you and your life particularly vulnerable when things like this happen. Showing our support would be really nice.

    Kelly Worden Seattle

    This benefit seminar is being conducted by a handful of Datu Kelly’s most senior instructors and a couple of my close friends. All proceeds will be used to help Datu Kelly get through this difficult time. Martin Gonzalez, Belton Lubas and Ian Allen will all be teaching! If you have been influenced, know, trained, attended a seminar, and or have worked with Datu and live in the Northwest….come see what his instructors have to offer. Come out support the seminar by attending, donating, and/or sharing this event!

    It’s only a $50 donation. Please confirm your attendance if you’d like to go and if you can’t, consider making a donation through the Go Fund Me link here: http://www.gofundme.com/zd5w7ynw

    Sincerely,

    GET STARTED FOR $1.00* – 48 HOURS LEFT

    If you know you want to pick up a trial skip this text and scroll back up to the program of your choice.

    If you’re not sure here’s the bottom line…

    We do martial arts for adults, fitness for adults and martial arts for kids.

    For the next 48 hours we have a $1 trial for 3 Classes & a FREE T-Shirt for adults or 6 WEEKS and a FREE Uniform for kids.

    We have NEVER done this before.

    This is a crazy good deal and if you are interested it would be goofy not to jump on it.

    But is this something you might want to do?

    We can help with that.

    Answer 4 out of 5 of these questions with a YES and you’ll have your answer.

    1)  We’re located in North Seattle.  Northgate to be precise.  Can you make it here?

    2)  Is now a good time to try something new and do you actually want to participate in a martial arts, kickboxing or a fitness program?

    3)  At MKG Seattle we’re passionate about creating a friendly and ego-less, but hard working and authentic, environment where everyone can accomplish their own goals whether it be self-defense, weight loss, fitness, building confidence/focus/discipline or learning some of the coolest martial arts known to man.

    Does this sound like an environment you’d like?

    4)  We use various boxing and kickboxing styles to create awesome workouts and progressions in BOTH Martial Arts and MAX10, and even in the Kids program.  If you want to learn, think and gain real skills pick Martial Arts and if you just want the fitness approach pick MAX10.  It’s that simple.

    Does one of these three programs still sound good to you?

    5)  Just for martial arts interest – In our martial arts program we cross-train.  Our signature program is a mixed art method and this is what we do BEST.  It blends Filipino Kali, Muay Thai, JKD, Savate, Filipino Boxing and in later levels MMA and CSW.  You CAN do just Muay Thai or just Kali, you are WELCOME to and we’re great at it, but it’s missing the boat.

    We’re a martial arts SCHOOL.  The environment you might be joining has roots back to the legendary Bruce Lee and his descendants.  We are in the lineage and/or certified by LEGENDARY, world famous and pioneering martial artists Bruce Lee, Guro Dan Inosanto, Ajarn Chai Sirisute, Sifu Rick Faye, Sensei Erik Paulson, Professor Salem Assli and more.  This family tree, and the MKG approach, has created some of the finest martial artists in the world and has been taught for over 40 years.

    At MKG Seattle we have been open for 15 years and created many instructors in different arts and successful competitors in Muay Thai, boxing and kickboxing. (though we are NOT a competition oriented school by choice)

    We are good at what we do and we know what we’re doing.

    Martial art is about far more than just competing in the ring or whittling down arts to an aggressive bag of self defense tactics.  The martial art journey at MKG will transform your body and your physical capabilities far beyond what you’re expecting and will instill a love of physical movement, martial art in general, different cultures and different people.  Each art does something BETTER than the others and when combined they improve and evolve and that helps YOU improve and evolve as well.

    We are teachers looking for STUDENTS not gym members.  Can you be coached or do you already know?  Do you want to learn martial arts and are you open minded?

    End of the questions…

    What do you think?

    If you answered YES to those questions a trial is $1.00.

    A dollar!

    Why wouldn’t you?

    Only 48 hours left.

    Hope to see you in class!

    Double Stick Sumbrada Seminar

    Double Stick Sumbrada Seminar

    _mg_2257Bruce Lee said “If you want to learn to swim jump into the water. On dry land no frame of mind is ever going to help you.”

    In the Filipino Martial Arts there exist micro games within categories and ranges of weaponry. It is within this flow that attributes and combative skill can be developed and ingrained safely and progressively. Coming back to Bruce Lee’s analolgy the drills are what we sometimes call ‘filling the pool’ and it is the variables, broken rhythm and choice reaction within the drill that we need to get to. But first we needed to fill the pool.

    Sumbrada is one of those training methods and generally starts out with a counter-for-counter structure.

    We will be working on our 12 basic contra sumbrada patterns with double sticks then progressively coming back to stick & dagger, single stick, double dagger and single dagger if time allows.

    Guro Jon Escudero Fall 2014 Arnis Seminar

    Arnis Seminar in Seattle

    Guro Jon Escudero LSAI Seattle
    Join us for a 2 day seminar with Guro Jon Escudero in Seattle on Lightning Scientific Arnis this October 25 & 26, 2014. Master Jon will be flying in from Israel to update his students here in Seattle, WA and Washington D.C.

    A system founded in 1937 by Grandmaster Benjamin Luna-Lema. The system is composed of the Tercia, Cadenilla, Serrada and Espada Y Daga styles. It is known for its powerful, fluid, and fast strikes; its preference for “blind-siding” the opponent; and its focus on the stick and knife. An important principle in Lightning is closing with the opponent and ‘blanketing’ them with multiple strikes. Grandmaster Lema …would say, “If he gives me one strike, I give him fifteen. Even if he does not give me one strike, I give him fifteen.”

    Equipment Needed: 2 Sticks and a training dagger.

    Guro Jon may be available for private lessons between the 23rd and 26th. Please inquire. Guro Jon is a popular guest instructor here at MKG and his seminars are known for being practical yet fun and full of humor.
