International Martial Arts Association - Weekend Event Nov 10-12
Next weekend my husband Paul and I will be in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at the Eastern U.S.A. International Martial Arts Association (EUSAIMAA).
Every November they hold an exhilarating weekend of training, seminars, and events for hundreds of martial artists. They also host the U.S.A. International Black Belt Hall of Fame and annual Hall of Fame awards. The weekend event is recognized and respected by the world martial arts community, and attended by representatives from many dozens of countries from around the world from novice to Grandmaster.
The sizeable work to organize and run this event every year is done by Soke Kanzler and Kim Harper. "Soke" is a Japanese term meaning "head master of a style" and is used for those who have risen to such a degree of understanding of the martial arts that they have founded their own martial arts system.
I will be there, learning all I can, and teaching a seminar of core training - The Ab Revolution - a method of training abdominal and back muscles the way they really work for daily life and for exercise. It is better, harder exercise than conventional ab training and uses no forward bending. The many posts of this blog explain how the commonly-used forward bending for exercise only trains unhealthy bent-forward posture and is not the way your muscles should work when you stand and move in real life. You will learn techniques to increase power and to change spine positioning to prevent injury right in the one-hour seminar.
The weekend event is by invitation only. People must be registered guests to attend seminars. To attend or stop by and say hello, contact the International Headquarters of the International USA Martial Arts Association, or call toll free at 1-800-456-3872. Tell them I referred you.
