PostSubject: Manchester Seminar 2009 AAR   Mon 09 Mar 2009, 23:16

Hi Guys

Sundays Seminar.

Everybody seems to love combative s seminar, As soon as I tell all my students there is a combative s seminar they all put there name down to attend. There is always a good turn out.

When I arrived at the gym there was already a load waiting outside, cos the gym didn't open for another 10 minutes.


[Den and Greg discussing the program]

The seminar started with an excellent power point presentation on the vital pyramid and how to incorporate it into your everyday life. I have seen Dennis present quite a few of these power point presentations and this was the best yet, very professional.

There was an excellent drill that shown the difference between Condition yellow and condition orange.

After the Combative s mindset section came the warm up and the ton up circuit session.
I really like the ton ups very good circuit with lot s of scope for progression.

The next module was on how to improve the impact of of your strikes with some very unique exercises which everyone agreed really improved the power. As everything in combative s it has to work right now and it did.


[Den during his presentation]

Next up was yours truly and my presentation was on kicking for the street.
I started off with a little talk on ranges and how you can over complicate things and make things difficult for yourself or you can simplify things and make them a lot easier and most of my presentation was about showing how ranges overlap.

I shown a few drills to improve power on the various kicks and a visualisation drill to improve the knee.


[Greg teaching a kneestrike from a ground control position]

From the feedback I got I think it went well.

Si Squires shown a great module on Escapes and getting off the floor which was really good and practical, also easy to learn and easy to remember.


[Si during his presentation, with cage fighter Dianne Berry]

The Padded assailant scenario at the end was a very different and very good.

Using all what was learned over the day to escape rather than stand and fight.
With the usual fitness blast before the pressure test.

I don't know what's worse going first or waiting till the end, but its always funny how all the faces change and people start physically shaking and eyes bulging just like a real fight.

This is the 5th time I have hosted Dennis and his seminars and the combative s community that comes to the seminars are always first rate.



Everyone who trains really trains hard and they all say they get loads out of it and its very different to the martial arts they practise.

Afterwards we always head to Chinatown, Pearl City actually for the post session well earned supper.
Which is as informative as the seminar.
All the guys have some great stories especially Den he has loads of really interesting stories.

So it was a good day all round and I look forward to the next time we all meet up and bash holes out of each other in the name of fun.

Hi Greg
I still owe you a pint mate! I just wanted to say that I enjoyed Manchester so much, that I hope to get up there again some time this year maybe we could do some training together etc
I couldn't get over how much the place had changed since I was last there many years ago.
I enjoyed meeting and making new freinds, I'm terrible at recalling names but it was really great meeting you all
Thanks again to Den, Si Greg, and the main man in the suit!
Regards
Andyt

[Den with Tim, who works on Liverpool doors]

The stated aim of the seminar was to give the atendees a variety of things to take away, and use, either for self-protection, or, for their own training.
For example, we introduced the Ton-ups to the class, as something they can work on in their own future training, and progress measurably.
Likewise, the module on Enhancing shock impact was designed to give the guys a way of constantly improving their striking power.
I'm always impressed by Greg's enthusism for the subject. He has studied a myriad of methods from far and wide, and has loads of hands-on real experience. I highly recommend that you take the opportunity to train with him.
