American Maharlika Kuntaw Seminar!


     Well the seminar was over and it was an absolutely great time.  Brian “Buzz” Smith came and and taught Shield and Sword techniques Filipino style.  Definately an eye opener for those who came and definately a real treat.

     During the course of the seminar Buzz translated the material to empty hand in a practical straight forward Kuntaw manner.  All the material worked well with Shield and Sword, Forearm and Dagger or just plan empty hand.  Truly a treat and very, very unique material.

Below is a short video clip from the event.  Like all video clips this just encapsulated a small moment in time.  If you missed the training you really missed out.
