    New study group advice
    By David43515 - 09-20-2010 08:26 AM

    ====================

    Recently began talking with some friends here in Sapporo Japan about forming a small group for practicing kali. I used to practice a bit in the States and would really be introducing everyone else to it. I`m not an expert and don`t claim to be. And Since I don`t claim any rank, we certainly wouldn`t be able to legitimately offer any ranks to others. It`s just an informal group of guys getting together to learn the basics, practice, and enjoy themselves. However, if the group gets large enough, say above 20-25 people, I`d kind of like to be able to host some good instructors for seminars sometime.

    Most of the guys who are interested so far have backgrounds in Judo and Aikido. So they`re no complete beginners, but have no weapons experiance. Any advice?

    Also, does anyone know any MA supply sources in Australia or the Filipines where we could order sticks etc without having to import them from the US? A closer source just seems like it`d be less expensive in the long run.

    We have a couple of instructors here on Guam who might be able to help you at a later date.. I teach Sinko Tiros and Balintawak and I just started as a group leader for Dekiti Tirsia.. Our other instructor teaches Bram Frank's CSSD blade program as well as Cadenilla Escrima from GM Vic Sanchez.. We are only 4 hrs flying time away.
     
  5. Thanks Gagimilo for the shout.

    Yes, we've sent a few bits to Japan before.

    The OP may also be interested in our BZ Japan website too:

    BTW all - after being scammed for over $1000 recently we hope to have some rattan sticks on the website soon....

    Simon.
