Open session 9th June Chingford UK

This will be an informal session and is meant for people who have some familiarity with my work via DVDs/downloads and my Facebook page. I will be working to help you translate the rationale of my approach into your own applied practice. In that sense the workshop will be developed on-the-fly in response to what is happening in the room at the time. I will take individual problems that I see in the room and generalize from them to develop solutions for the group. We will be working on all phases of the fight from standup to ground, and all aspects of training. This will be an interactive session, and I will endeavour to answer as many questions as time permits.

As long-term followers of my work can attest, I don’t do open sessions very often. One reason for doing this session is to convey the most recent changes in my approach that have not been committed to video yet. I have a number of recent insights that will be useful to anyone looking to increase physical performance, whether for fighting or anything else. This is a rare opportunity for you.

The session costs £60 payable in advance. It will be held from 1-5 PM at Murray’s Martial Arts in Salisbury Road, Chingford E4 6TA. Directions to the venue can be found on their website. No equipment is needed.

Housekeeping

Hi guys, Tricia here. I’m doing a little maintenance on the website and I can see that we have a lot of messages over the last several months coming in through the feedback mechanism. I’ll be completely honest: I forgot we even had this facility on the website, and I don’t have time to figure out how to turn it off. But it’s a terrible way to get in touch with Steve because he never checks it and it also picks up a lot of spam, so stuff gets buried.

If you’ve sent a message through the site, I’m sorry that we haven’t seen it! In future, please use Steve’s Facebook page or his email, which is stevemorris @ the address of this website. Thanks.

Selected content as downloads

Hi everyone, Tricia here. I’ve been making selected DVD titles available as downloads for some weeks now. This is still a trial run, so you can’t get instant access, but it’s much faster than waiting for the post.

Here’s how to do it. Look at the list of what we have, then order the DVD that you want as usual. Put a note on your paypal order or send us an e-mail or Facebook message to let us know you want the download. I will send you a link to the MP4 files asap for you to view online and/or download. I will also refund you £2.50 because we save on postage.

If you want something that isn’t on the list, it’s worth contacting me to ask if I can do it. The shorter the DVD, the more likely I can help you out. I aim to have everything up eventually, but if people ask me it gives me a nudge in the right direction.

Right now we have:

Going to the Ground DVD now available

I’ve been teaching about the entry-breakdown-takedown-finish for a great many years. However, I’ve released very little of it on video. For a number of years in my sessions at both Gloucester and Enfield we’ve been experimenting and trying to marry the standup with the ground, which share certain commonalities that may not be immediately obvious. Once you understand them you will have a deeper understanding of the whole fight.

Going to the Ground is the first in a new series that will highlight the rationale underlying the entry-breakdown-takedown-finish and its applications depending on the individual and the situational context. It was recorded with my Enfield group in live, unscripted teaching sessions.

This is a huge topic. In deciding how to begin covering it, I was faced with an interconnected web of concepts and technical applications. As with everything I do, this material holistically connects to the principles of standup and movement in general. That makes it difficult to capture in a single session. For this reason, I’m offering more than one view of the material, from more than one angle. I’m not teaching moves, I’m trying to get across certain concepts that are fundamental to all aspects of fighting. You will see the extension of my work on striking in this material, but in a new way. Everything links together coherently.

These are DVDs that will reward repeated viewing and careful study. They are heavily loaded with information and examples.
