    This is just a friendly blog post reminding everyone about our upcoming Kickboxing Seminar with Kru Jose Villarisco on March 18th.

    This is a wonderful opportunity to learn a bunch of new skills from one of the best coaches in the world.

    I talked to Kru Jose on the phone yesterday and he wanted me to let everyone know that he plans on showing his best techniques, the really good “Secret Ninja” stuff.

    And just so everyone knows, there’s no sparring at this seminar. The focus will be 100% on drilling. You won’t get beat up, punched in the face or have to spar/fight someone.

    I just wanted to make that clear for those who weren’t sure about that. Okay with that said, below you’ll find a short list of skills and techniques Kru Jose plans on teaching on 3/18:

    Setting up your kicks for pinpoint accuracy
    Punch combos that KO would-be attackers
    Elbows that cut like a buzzsaw
    Knees, outside and from in close
    Kru’s famous “Alligator” low kick

    That’s some solid stuff for sure. Shoot man if you just learned the Alligator kick and nothing else, it’d still be worth your time and investment.

    This seminar is open to all levels, including novice level students who’re new to kickboxing and martial arts training in general. You’ll be fine don’t worry.

    Feel free to work at your own pace. If you need a break and would rather hang back and watch for a bit, that’s okay too.

    Are seminars worth the time and effort it takes to attend?

    I had someone come up to me the other day and ask if i thought seminars were really worth the time and investment?

    My answer is yes, 100% yes, seminars are absolutely worth the time and investment. I recommend taking as many seminars as possible actually.

    I know for me personally, seminars helped me so much in my career, especially in my early years as a new white and blue belt.

    I always blocked out days and times to attend seminars related to subjects I wanted to learn more about.

    Think about it, even if you learn just one new technique that you’re able to add in and use for many years down the road, than you got your money’s worth and then some.

    I remember taking a $50 Jiu Jitsu seminar back in 1996 at a small karate dojo in Yardley Pennsylvania.

    It was at that seminar I was introduced to the butterfly guard sweep series, which at that time was big new thing.

    That ended up being the best $50 dollars I ever invested because still to this very day I use those same techniques, over 21 years later.

    And if I hadn’t gone to that seminar I might never have learned what ended up being my #1 sweep series from the guard.

    So come on out and take this seminar. Learn as much as you can from Kru Jose, ask questions, bring a notebook and write stuff down.

    Even if you learn just one new thing that helps you get better, it’s worth it. Totally worth it.
