2015 IKAA Seminar A Huge Success



IKAA’s 2015 “Instructor Seminar” was a huge success. Master Eric Marks, his wife, and his students did a great job hosting the seminar. His new location is looking great. There was a terrific turnout for the seminar. This seminar had the largest turnout of recent seminars. Thanks to all the students who spread the word. Let’s keep the buzz going about how much fun we have training.

The large number of students is not what made the seminar a success. It was a success because of the fellowship shared between the students and instructors. The goal of the International Kung Fu Arnis Association (IKAA) is to provide a positive network where students can associate with, train with, and share knowledge with fellow students from other schools. Egos are left at the door. There is a clear feeling of mutual respect and sharing between brothers and sisters in the martial arts. Master Jason McGuire put it best when he stressed to the students to become “great martial artist” not just great fighters.

The quality of instruction was top-notch as usual. The students enjoyed each section of training. Grand Master Ward provided some of the best training of the day. He taught students different techniques and strategies from each of the Sil Lum animals. Grand Master Ward unselfishly gave of his time, teaching for almost two hours longer than planned. The students left with tired bodies, full minds, and happy hearts.

Make plans now to attend next years seminar!
