    This weekend I get to go to a seminar to learn from one of my favorite teachers, Guro Rick Faye. I am quite excited, especially considering that I had to miss his local seminar last year. Sunday will be all Panantukan! Learning Panantukan from someone who really knows it is one of my most favorite things to do in martial arts. I am really looking forward to the weekend. And my best friend from my dojo (who is also my Jun Fan teacher) is going too, so I know I'll have a good training partner.

    Not sure of Rick's policy, but a lot of seminar instructors I've met frown on being videod. I think it's because then, theoretically, their material could end up on the internet without their permission. I wouldn't do that, of course, but it is a legitimate concern. What my friends & I do in that situation is, when there's a rest break or lunch break, video ourselves doing the drills from the seminar. Obviously we won't be at the same level as the instructor, but it is a big help in remembering what we learned.

    How'd it go?

    It was really good. Training was awesome and a buddy I typically only see at MA seminars was there. The venue was a bit odd: it was at a BJJ school, which was in a shopping mall. The school was right next to a big department store, so fairly often shoppers would stop and watch us for a few minutes before carrying on with their shopping trip.
