Mr. Duffy Teaches Seminar at Bob Whites Karate Studio in Costa
Duffy traveled to Costa Mesa, CA with his wife Lee on Saturday February 25
to conduct a seminar at Bob White's Karate Studio.
There were approximately 25 peoples in attendance. The seminar was
3 hours long and covered technique training drills, recurring concepts
found in techniques, and grafting. The folks in the seminar were very receptive and picked up on
the drills and concepts very quickly.
Mr. Duffy was very honored to be asked to teach at Mr. White's
studio. He was also very
honored to have in attendance at the seminar Pat Salantri and Tom Bleeker.
Mr. Duffy would like to thank all of the students and staff of BWKK
for their courtesy and support. Special thanks goes to Vishal Shukla (one
of Mr. White's Black Belts) for setting up the scheduling and logistics.
Also a special thanks goes to Mr. & Mrs. White for their
hospitality to the Duffy's during the trip.
3. AKF Invitation-Only Brown and Black Belt Training Camps
With the coming
of a new year Mr. Duffy will once again be conducting a series of one-day training camps for
AKF Brown and Black Belt students by invitation only.
These will be in the winter, spring, and summer. The AKF will continue to offer its annual Fall Spirit Camp. These one-day Brown and Black Belt camps will be curriculum based training conducted and taught primarily by Mr. Duffy with perhaps one guest instructor to teach a class in related material. The annual Fall Spirit will continue to present several guest instructors to broaden your perspective on Kenpo.
These camps will offer everyone a set schedule for the year to plan to work with other AKF Brown and Black Belts.
The Winter Training Camp will begin at 9:00AM and go till Saturday evening sometime with breaks for meals. This camp will include a cardio/bag work class, a sparring class, belt chart reviews and concepts and principles of teaching. The cost of the camp is
$100.00 and does not include meals. Further details are provided with your invitation.
Aspiring AKF Brown and Black Belts should look forward to attending these camps.
