We’ve just opened a new class due to special request.
A few of the lads I work with on the door had just seen the Bourne Ultimatum and were asking me about Krav Maga, I explained the similarities between KM and FMA/Kenpo, plus the fact that in the previous films Bourne had been using FMA so we opened a new class.
Every Monday at 4.30pm we will be teaching FMA/Kenpo at the Pinnacle Gym off Camden St, just behind Copper’s. The class format is based around empty hand and street defence. The ceilings are just too low for full on stick swinging, but we already have 3 classes based around the stick/weapons, so it’s about time we taught empty hands and unarmed vs armed on a regular basis.
So far, my students (largely due to the class time) are security and Garda, this suits us as the Wild Geese are active in the securit field and love teaching to people who may actually find themselves in the situation where they need some of this training. However we are open to everybody.
Hopefully I’ll be able to get some youtube footage sorted out soon showing all aspects of our training.
For those who don’t know pinnacle, it’s a proper Gym. Mick has set this up as a gym for people who want to train, he has plenty of free weights, a selection of machines, an outdoor (covered) section with a powerlifting platform, maize bag, punch bag and boxing ring as well as an upstairs room for martial arts classes, one end of the room features half an octogon for all you mma’ers.
Oh there’s also a treadmill and rowing machine, although they’re a bit dusty!
