Training with Martin Wheeler

While in the US I had  chance to train with Martin Wheeler.

I also purchased a copy of his latest DVD - Moving and Striking

The class was very interesting and was held at a park in Los Angeles. There were 6 of us and we did some punching and knife drills.

The last part of the class where we did some knife sparring was an excellent lesson for me as Martin was kind enough to "spar" with me and pointed out that I had too much tension in my shoulders. Once I removed that (easier said than done!) I found movements to be very smooth and flowing - that is when you are really in control of your opponent/s. Once you get that feel it is very hard to explain but very Zen like. Total peace and total fear elimination. A worthy outcome to continually practice for.

Thank you Martin! :)
