Live Self Defense Seminar with Aleksandra Knepper

As professional martial artists, it's natural to increase the difficulty of the techniques and styles we practice as we advance in our tenure. During this Live session led by 3rd Degree Black Belt, Sensei, and Martial Artist of 20 years, Aleksandra Knepper, we'll be taking a step back to focus on how to react in a real-world scenario, without our gi, a mat, or even "rules of the ring." Aleks founded the self-defense instruction company, PalmStrike, to build the capacity of non-martial artists to feel comfortable protecting themselves in an attack. Recognizing most non-martial artists don't know how to execute a 360 degree kick or advanced grappling, PalmStrike equips them with basic tools they can remember and use in a real-life scenario.

Recently a friend, David Abdullah Muhammad aka Brotha Newz, https://youtu.be/o0FNaWDqB1U started posting vintage martial arts movie posters for an upcoming album release and reminiscing about movies that I watched as a young adult. Most of these are not what you would typically think of like Enter the Dragon. Most of them were from the 80's which I consider to be the golden age of the martial arts movie genre. You had movies like A Force of One with Chuck Norris and Bill Wallace, Blood Sport with Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Above the Law with Steven Seagal. These movies had some of the biggest martial arts stars of the time and really pushed an explosion of martial arts related movies into the next decade.
