Rick Faye Seminar April 2017


Guro Rick Faye: April 8-9, 2017


2 Day Seminar featuring Kali, Panantukan, Silat, Jun Fan /JKD, Muay Thai and more…


Founder of the world renowned martial arts school, the Minnesota Kali Group, Rick Faye is dedicated to the highest levels of training and individual improvement in the martial arts. In addition to being the MKG owner and head instructor of the Minnesota Kali Group and his instructor development organization, MKG International, Rick is widely considered to be one of the top instructors in the JKD family world wide. Rick’s impressive reputation for seminars on the art, self-defense and law enforcement topics keep him in demand locally, nationally & internationally.

Rick Faye’s credentials include 2 Senior Full Instructorships under Dan Inosanto (Jun Fan/Jeet Kune Do & the Filipino Martial Arts), and a 5th level Maphilindo Silat Instructorship under Guro Inosanto. He is a regional director for the Thai Boxing Association, U.S.A. and holds the level of Ajarn (Senior Instructor) in Muay Thai under Grandmaster Chai Sirisute. He also holds instructorships in Wing Chun Gung Fu, Sensei Erik Paulson’s C.S.W. curriculum (Combat Submission Wrestling) and numerous other arts. Rick’s teaching methods have paved the way for both the fighter, the martial artist and the martial art enthusiast to all thrive and excel in this complex and functional martial art system.

Rick’s devotion to the art is evidenced by his belief in constant training of the basics and an impressive attention to detail. This enthusiasm is integral to his teaching and helps his students learn and maintain their excitement. The results of this work ethic are obvious in both his art and his teaching.

Some good news / bad news…
Bad news first…
Guro Rick Faye can’t make it for today’s seminar… The chaos with Delta Airlines this week made it impossible to even get a connecting flight to Seattle after his Friday flight cancellation.
He’s got a flight to Vancouver, BC tonight and will be here tomorrow!
The good news…?
Guro Paul McCarthy from the Inosanto Academy was here to participate in the seminar and give a 15 minute presentation on Cognitive Kali this afternoon. He’s agreed to do a 2-3 hour block instead! Guro Paul is an instructor under Guro Inosanto in Kali, Jun Fan and Silat as well as several other systems.
He’s been making quite a wave in the martial arts world with his Cognitive Kali and his Ted talk.
This will be awesome!
I will teach 1-2 hours to pick up the rest for today.
Sunday – We’re going to extend the seminar by an hour or two tomorrow for those who can stay.
Here is the schedule:
Saturday: 12:00 to 4:00 Guro Paul McCarthy and Guro Andy Wilson
Sunday: 11:00 to 4:00 with optional extension to 5:00 or 6:00
I hope this solution is suitable for you?
The seminar weekends with Guro Rick are very important events bringing our most dedicated students and community together to train and learn.
I hope you can stay.
Rest assured we will address pro-rated refunds and refunds in general just as soon as we can for those who do not like this solution for today.
Thanks for your patience and understanding.
Fingers crossed,
Andy Wilson and the MKG Seattle Team
