Invited to Train with the Best
The closest most of us will get to Hollywood’s martial arts greats is a wax statue, but Chief Instructor Kevin Blundell was invited to train with the world’s best, including Bruce Lee’s No.1 student and movie star Dan Inosanto. Kevin headed off to Los Angeles in the United States to focus on advanced knife defence with Inosanto. The schedule included sessions with world boxing champion Eric Paulson, (leading authority on Grappling), Larry Hartsell, and time at the Universal Studio’s Stuntman Academy. During his trip Kevin collected interviews for an Instruction video/DVD about Self Defence. He has already released his first DVD called ‘Be Your Own Body Guard’. “A lot of people do Martial Arts for sport and I respect that but we teach defence first and sport second”. Kevin flew out to the United states from Australia on August 27, 2005.
