Need a lift to Buffalo, Wes? There's room in my car.
As much as I'd love to go - no amount of martial arts training would save me from my wife and son if I did go... Sounds like it will be a good time though....
I've attended both a formal seminar by him and an informal spur-of-the-moment one, and learned things both times! I certainly recommend him.
Can I still make a game day decision to attend? My schedule is all kinds of messed up right now.
I think that's fine!
what time does it start ?? How much is it for 1 day
The training part is $30 and is on Saturday, i believe noon to 6 or 7.
The social parts free Fri and Sat (other than what you eat/drink)

I have occasionally been working on some aluminum training blades when time has allowed. I will have some for sale during this Saturday's 2007 MartialTalk meet and Greet for anyone interested. The price range is from $20 to $60.
I look forward to the event.
Its looking like I should be able to make it out there... I never know for sure until the last minute, but its about a 95% chance I will get there... looks like it will be an interesting group this year, and I would hate to miss it.

2007 Buffalo NY MartialTalk Meet & Greet
August 3-4, 2007: Buffalo NY
Well, this years event has come to a close. We had 34 attendees, making this our largest event ever. People came from Massachusetts, Texas, Michigan, West Virginia, Ohio, Ontario and more this year. My mind is as usual, fried right now, so I'll just touch on the high lights of this years event.
Friday night we met up at the hotel before heading out to Pizza Plant for some local cuisine, then back to the hotel for more relaxed networking.
Saturday was the official training day. I want to thank this years instructors for their time and wonderful sessions.
We started things out with Terry & Yolanda Stoker from Texas, who ran everyone through some interesting warm ups and techniques that they use in their school. They were followed by Daniel Tesmer (Drac) & Steven Fine (Father Greek) from Ohio who demonstrated some of the techniques police use to control a subject, and did some Combat Hapkido. Third up was local Wing Chun instructor Mark Stoddard who went over some of the techniques and concepts of Wing Chun. Forth was Tom Quinn from NY who did some excellent Nihon Goshin Aikido. Fifth was Rich Parsons from Michigan who taught Modern Arnis, Sixth was Jason Arnold from Ontario, Canada who taught Parkers Kenpo, and we closed out with Jack Latorre who did Pekiti Tirsia.
After a short break where several of us helped dismantle the training floor and move it to the schools new location, we headed out to the buffet for crab, sushi and more. Then, back to the hotel where the last person didn't head to bed until after 1am.
From what I've seen and heard so far, this was our best M&G yet. I personally want to thank each and everyone who came for making this a huge success! It was a pleasure finally meeting so many of you and seeing others again.
If you missed it, you missed some excellent training and comradery, but don't despair. We're doing it again next year and you can schedule early.
The 2008 MartialTalk-KenpoTalk-FMATalk-WNYMartialArts Meet & Greet will be held July 18,19,20th 2008 in Buffalo NY. We have 2 tentative instructors already listed for next year as well. Jason Arnold and Jack Latorre. So mark your calendars now!
I'm editing the pictures now, and should have them posted by mid week. (400+ to go through, lol)
Thank you again!
