Past Seminars

Beijing Seminar II - 2009

Beijing Seminar 2009This was my second seminar that I did in Beijing, although it was my third seminar in China; my first being in Shanghai. Well, the second seminar was slightly different from the first seminar.  The second one was easier to teach because the first seminar I had put the foundation in place and the guys had to follow what I had left them to do, which they did.  I teach things in a layered system; putting one thing on top of the other we spent the first day in revision and then moving onto the next step, and then the one after that.

October 2009 - Charity Seminar

Charity SeminarThis seminar was a Charity Seminar held at my school last year, the deal was whatever money we took in I was going to double it with my contribution. The total was over 1,000 odd pounds, we took in some 500 pounds and I added 500 of my own money. The money was given to Erskine hospital for ex servicemen who have fought for this country in different wars from WWI to Afghanistan.

Belgium Seminars #1 and #2 - 2009

Belgium seminarDidier Coppens is my student and host for these two events.  The first seminar I did there was just trying to straighten things out; get the guys on the right road and set them off so that when I returned they had a solid base from where to go.  It's always the same doing a seminar; there's tons of versions of JKD, but, sadly not many of them are following Bruce's principals.

May 2009 - Ted Wong Seminar

Ted Wong SeminarTed came across to do his yearly seminar this May 2009.  Before I even go into anything about the seminar, I can honestly tell you for a man of 70 something it's just amazing. Well, starting off Ted always makes sure than new and old students are reminded about the construction of the stance and how all the parts fit into the whole. How the feet are aligned and how the body fits into this; the triangle and how it's constructed for stability.

April 2009 - Italy Seminar

Italy SeminarThis was my first seminar in Italy, the place was Caserta just outside Naples. Going here I was thinking what to teach or what kind of experience would these guys have. Could I get them to glove up or should I let them hit the pads to see where we're at? Well I decided I should just start teaching from the basics and just see where we go from there. The seminar was hosted by Antonio Devito, a student of Tim Tackett.

March 09 - Spain Seminar

Madrid SeminarThis is my third time teaching in Spain, the other two occasions that I taught there was just outside Barcelona but this one was in Madrid. The attendance I was told was over 70 folks which is pretty good but can present problems with translation and the most important thing people paying attention to what's being taught and what I want them to do. This was a one day seminar so I decided to just cover one thing, and then at least I have left them with something.

Jan 09 - China Seminar

China SeminarWhere could you possibly start with being invited to teach gung fu in China. I could have never have imagined going to teach martial arts to a country that has such a massive history in the arts, but funnily enough this isn’t my first time teaching in China, even though this is my most memorable visit as of yet.

July 2008 - Seminar for Jesse Glover Seattle

This is the second seminar I have done at Jesse Glover’s school. For all the people who don’t know who Jesse is, he is the very first student that Bruce Lee taught his martial art to in the States. Jesse has been a friend of mine for more years than I could care to mention, he has done more seminars for me here in Scotland than anywhere else in the U.K.
