Yeah, I know, I have been totally slack when it comes to updating my blog. It was a hectic end to 2008 after coming back to Melbourne. I had a busy schedule of seminars in Melbourne, Sydney and Queensland and really had a ball with all of them.
Spent some time in Mildura where I taught a seminar and gave a lecture at a community function arranged by my firend, Anne Cunningham. Also had a great time in Brisbane with Deane Lawler and his buddy Ned. We really had such a good laugh together. Deane is no Bullshit when it comes to the arts and he and Ned really looked after me. Neither of them are very bright so I guess it”s a good thing they are at least decent blokes, eh?
Sam Greco and I teamed up for a Kick Boxing seminar at Vince Bustil”s school in Heathmont. Vince is a dear friend and he has such a good bunch of students out there.
Also had a chance to get on the floor with my old friend, Bob Jones. Bob and I went out to a Zen DO Kai school recently and it was so good to out there on the floor again with Bob. We have been friends and training mates now for over 43 years, if you can believe it. Of course I have been doing a number of seminars in MMA and BJJ with my Sydney mate, Dr George Adams and also a Kick Boxing class at Fari Salievski”s Dojo.
I was so thrilled to be able to present George with his well earned Blue Belt during a seminar in Canberra arranged by my mate Damien.I wish everyone would train as hard and put as much effort into being the best they can be as George. He really is an inspiration. If you knew what George has gone thru with life threatening accidents you would know what I mean.
Also lately I have been doing a lot of teaching at my friend Frank Monea”s Challenge academy in Oakleigh. Man I love going there. I am now teaching MMA and BJJ regularly on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Anyone in the area, come on down and check it out.
Finally, I just returned from the Gold Coast this week where I filmed some fight scenes with Guy Norris and Sydney Martial Arts phenom, Bren Foster. We are hoping to get a couple of movies together to shoot soon. It was great working with Bren as he is an incredible Martial Artist and I feel has a great film career ahead of him.
One highlight of the Gold Coast trip was to do some training and filming with Muay Thai legend, John Wayne Parr. Man, you need to see Wayne do his thing and what a fantastic bloke. He couldn”t be nicer and is such an ambassador for Kick Boxing here in Australia and the world.
Anyway, I promise to update this blog on a regular basis now. Please check out the photo gallery as I have loaded some shot”s taken at the variuos seminars over the past few months. Chiao!
