Weapons of the Orient seminar

I coordinated a Weapons of the Orient seminar last Sunday May 3rd in West Los Angeles through the World United Martial Arts Organization. Participants came from various schools in the area including Abrigo Martial Arts, Chul Jin Martial Arts, Jun Chong Tae Kwon Do and Jun Chong Martial Arts branches, totaling to 78 students at the seminar.
We introduced three different types of weapons during the seminar: Nunchuks, Escrima, and Kendo. Everyone was able to practice each weapon first-hand, learning the basic forms and strikes of each weapon and how they are used in combat.
Instructor Jay Schlauch puts on his Kendo gear.

I designed the commemorative shirt that was given to all the students as a gift for participating and they also received a Certificate of Completion. At the end of the seminar, the masters each gave a brief demonstration of each weapon and students were able to purchase weapons and DVD's to practice at home.
My Karate rubber duckies were a big hit!

Thanks to my volunteers Ada Chong and Spencer Groh for your help in registration, check in, and merchandise sales. Everything went really smoothly and even I was impressed that we were always on time!
For information on escrima, nunchuk, and kendo classes at Jun Chong Tae Kwon Do, please check their website or call (323)658-7570, (310) 979-9222.
A great job to all of our participants!
