Sharing our Knowledge

SHARING OUR KNOWLEDGE
May 15 (Sunday), 12:30-2:00
Red Sun Academy
6911 Capital Blvd.
Raleigh, NC  27616

I would love to see us all get together and share our martial art knowledge in a casual get-together.   Anything, any style, any manner of teaching goes.  Wear gi or jeans or shorts, wear a belt or not... all is okay.  Let's just share what we've learned at this VERY casual event.  Everyone gets about 10-15 minutes to show what they care to share (so we can end at 2:00).  Or just come to learn (you don't have to show something).  No one has to do anything they feel uncomfortable with.

Topics suggested: Pressure points, Push-hands, Locks, Kung Fu, Street defense, Tai Chi sword, and more.  No take downs please (liability).

Free event.

Let's grab Chinese food after!

    I am still hopeful that I can join you all but I won't know for sure until Sunday. If I can make it I will be happy to share ideas and techniques from Ryute (Okinawan Karate) and I look forward to seeing what everyone else is working on as well.

    So considerate of you, Brandon. Can't wait to meet you and everyone. Hmm... I think I'm all set. I'll be dropping my sister off at the airport Sunday, then rushing over, so if you get there and the door's locked, don't worry... I'll DEFINITELY be there by 12:30.

    Poor Julian wants to come but needs a ride from Durham...

    The focus is just what the title implies - SHARING OUR KNOWLEDGE. Also, on getting to know each other better. Of course, what we're sharing is "stuff" or "material" (besides our joy of the martial arts), so I'm not sure what you're asking. Sounds like a good question tho.

    its great that we can combined our minds together in relation to internal martial art techniques where we can learn from each other and not focus too much on MATERIAL INCENTIVE from learning from others.....if that is the focus of the meetup...lol

    that sounds great, Brandon

    30 minutes may be too long. I was thinking we meet for an hour or two, and not be all that structured as to time each teacher. Maybe more like 15 minutes or so per teacher. All this depends on who attends. I plan to show tai chi sword and a fun choreographed push hands.

    I would definitely be interested in that and if there is any way I could help in coordinating, please let me know.

    That works for me so far. I might not have a location in February, but will consult on that idea closer to the time. I'm excited to train with and meet other martial artists!

    RE MARTIAL ARTISTS GETTING TOGETHER TO SHARE THEIR KNOWLEDGE, NO MATTER WHAT LEVEL, FREE
    Yaya - you most certainly can. All are welcome.
    Adam - great idea, will do.
    Will post when I hear an okay from Dan & Brandon to see if date/time/place works for them. (Jan 30, 2011, 1pm, North Raleigh)

    There are close to 100 members listed with this group. Although I am sure a lot of them are not active, many might respond to a introductory meeting and or demonstration where the group can come together, face to face, and learn about each other prior to starting training. Just a thought.

    Can I join you guys if the date and location get decided? I am new, but I would like to meet with others who practices martial arts as hobby too.

  • AmyAmy

    In February - Dan picks where we meet.
    In March - Brandon picks.
    But time (1pm) and date (last Sunday) should be consistent, do you agree?

    November 12, 2010

  • AmyAmy

    Great! Maybe just the 3 of us (Dan, Brandon, myself) can meet for now and show eachother our favorite martial art "stuff". We spread the word, and hopefully this can grow. Now, the questions is where and when. I suggest once a month. How's the last Sunday of the month, starting in January? Time? I don't know... 1pm? Place... I offer my studio in North Raleigh (Capital & 540). We can use a park when weather is nice.

    Brandon, would love to be a Guest Instructor, should you ever need.

  • Dan P.

    I'd love to also meet or setup a weekly meeting where we could share information, train together, etc. It could be rotating lessons or it could be just a general gathering where we learn from each other loosely and informally. Anyone else?
