Sifu Griffin of Hung Gar Kung Fu has been training on and off with us since this summer. He has agreed to teach us Escrima during the winter months until we can get outside and swing our swords this summer.
In the following pictures we have Sifu Griffin being attacked by Sensei Micik with an overhead strike. Just follow the pictures. What we are learning about Escrima is that many of the strategies are so similar to Swordsmanship...like attacking the hands of the assailant. This post is to thank Sifu Griffin for his teachings.
Take Care, Shinzen
ps...for my students...remember Shihan Dean's Seminar in Rhinelander on March 21st.
Thanks for visiting. My Dharma name is Shinzen. I began studying Goshindo Karate under the watchful eye of Shihan Paul Dean in 1969. Yes, I now have gray hair. I am also Lay-ordained in Soto Zen under the tutelage of Rev. Nonin Chowaney of the Nebraska Zen Center.
