    Thanking

    Hi everyone
    Sort of just getting back to normal...
    I would like to thank again our hosts in Dublin (Guru Liam McDonald) and in Frankfurt (Christof), they have been fantastic!
    Very busy seminars, 67 in Dublin and 25 (circa) in Frankfurt, Guro Felix had a great time in europe. We are now down on organizing the next tour in Sept/Oct, I am sure it will be a blast!
    Meanwhile I would like also to share with you that I managed to pass my 1st ( and sudden) test with Guro...I and Dylan Lewis have been certified Fase 1 in ValenciaLameco. We are very proud of it.
    Thank again to all that have joined in.
    Have a great weekend all

    BTW: During his Germany visit Guro Felix noticed that close to the Seminar-Venue a Dogbrother Training Group held a Sparring-Meeting.

    He told me he definitly wanted to go there and spar with them.
    So all Seminar-attendees followed us to the Meeting.

    Here are the videos of Guro Felix sparring 5 guys in a row.

    (Film was cuted due to Youtube 10-Minute-Rule; the whole thing with a lot of talking before and in between lasted ca. 13 Minutes)

    Wow, some good stuff here!
    There are some great example of the efficiency of non-telegraphed hits, as well as an amazing display of live hand use. However, his showboating kinda got back to him in the beginning of the 2nd fight...

    Guro Felix Intention was not a serious Knifesparring.
    His Intention was to see how skilled his opponents were in Largo Mano.

    There is always a chance to get hit, especially with Jetlag and after training from 0900 to 1700 :)

    That's it.

    I agree with Christof.
    I was sort of told off in Ireland 'cos I put too much enfasis in sparring while I should have play and used(developed) my timing.
    True for the jetlag,
    Ciao

    Oh, don't get me wrong, I was not criticizing, that's for sure. In fact, I very much like the fact that guro Felix is one of the people who are willing to speak through actions and walk the walk for everyone to see. I envy you guys for the opportunity to train with him. Ah, some day...

    I understand that this Saturday, along with guro Roger Agbulos, alos of Lameco, and Tuhon Ray Dionaldo of FCS, guro Felix will conduct a stick and knife sparring seminar in LA, where a tournament should be held as well.
    It would be nice if some footage would be taken and out on the 'net, eh?

    I saw Guro Felix yesterday at his seminar that he shared with Guro Roger Agbulos and Tuhon Ray Dionaldo, all I can say is he was a dynamic instructor and truly held the attendee's attention and respect. You should be so luck to train with one or all three individuals.

    Much respect Guro Felix...
