May 12th 2012 / 9:30am – 1:00pm
THIS SEMINAR IS OPEN TO PJJA STUDENTS AS WELL AS FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS OF PJJA STUDENTS.
NON PJJA STUDENTS WILL BE TAUGHT SEPARATELY AND IN A GROUP AT A LEVEL TO MATCH THEIR ABILITY.
(Must be age 13 and up to attend)
Schedule & Description
09:30 – 10:00: Proper stabbing & Slashing with a knife
11:00 – 11:30: Lunch Break – Snacks & Juices are included
11:30 – 01:00: Combative scenarios with both participants holding a knife. This will give you the ability to use your own knife properly against an attacker with a knife. This session may also be used to review material from 10:00-11:00
PJJA believes that training must be as close to “real” as possible to be effective if/when needed in a real situation. We will be using aluminum blunt/dull knives and may also use wooden knives. The idea is for the knife to look and feel real but not be of any danger.
Non-student participants will be taught pretty much the same way and the same techniques as enrolled students with the exception of techniques where throws will be eliminated or modified for safety and ease of application.
Early Registration by Wed May 9th: $25 PJJA
Late Registration or Walk-ins: $35 PJJA (no exceptions)
2 or more immediate family members receive a $10 total discount
Early Registration includes 1 FREE 60-minute refresher session on a Wed night class 2-3 weeks after seminar
PJJA will attempt to offer 4 seminars/clinics a year. Exact dates and times will be announced on this blog and on the bulletin board at the dojo once determined. See dojo bulletin board for details on seminar material.
Feel free to request a seminar or clinic but first, be sure you gather at least 6 people and bring to Sensei’s attention that the group would like to schedule such an event.
As of Feb 2012 we have 3 seminars on the horizon: late March – KNIVES, late April BATONS, late May TBD(?)
