Most arts – including Kenpo – involve fighting from a standing base. Often, an altercation can end up on the ground. It’s important to know what to do then.
Garden City, MI (PRWEB) October 12, 2012
Guardian Martial Arts (GMA), a multipurpose martial arts and fitness studio based in Garden City, Mich., proudly welcomes self-defense technician Ryan “The Train” Trainor to it first MMA seminar, scheduled from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2.
The seminar will take place at the studio, located at 30942 Ford Road in Garden City, Mich.
“The Trainor” is an American Kenpo Black Belt, a personal fitness trainer, and holds rank in Caique Jiu Jitsu. His Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighting record is 2-1, and he continues to hone his skills by studying Muay Thai and boxing.
Kelly M. Perkins, director of GMA, said Trainor will present participants with the ground-fighting techniques and broaden their knowledge of self-defense.
“Most arts – including Kenpo – involve fighting from a standing base. Often, an altercation can end up on the ground. It’s important to know what to do then.”
“The Trainor” will teach age-appropriate lessons to 7- to 12-year-olds from 5 to 6 p.m. and conclude the workshop with instruction for 13- to 17-year-olds and adults from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
The following evening, on Saturday, Nov. 3, the studio will host its 14th annual GMA Interclub Tournament. Students will compete in forms, self-defense, sets, weapons, and sparring. Little Dragons will compete with Arnis in place of self-defense. Trophies will be awarded for each event, and the individuals with the top number of points will be named Grand Champion.
The cost for the Trainor seminar is $29 per person. However, Perkins said, those who sign up for the Interclub tournament and the MMA Seminar can attend the seminar for $15.
“This will be a great evening of fun and skill development,” Perkins said.
To take part in the seminar, reservations are required. To register, visit GMA’s website: http://www.guardianmartialarts.com, or call 734-266-0565.
