Kickboxing Seminar & Blackbelt Grading – April 2012

Robin French with Sifu David Farmer - April2012

On Saturday 21st April 2012 I attended a Kickboxing seminar at Laurence Sandum’s Black Belt Martial Arts Academy in Chelmsford, given by Guro Laurence Sandum.

The seminar focused on the French style of kickboxing Savate, and as such seminar attendees worked a number of fluid punch and kick combinations giving alternatives for an opponent’s different movements.

The seminar was part of a full day assessment for UK MASDA Kickboxing Black Belt candidates. After the information-packed seminar, the candidates had to endure a gruelling two hours of physical and mental endurance; designed to push even the fittest to their limits.

After over 15 years of training in Kickboxing, my long term friend and training partner Sifu David Farmer successfully completed his 1st Dan Black Belt, giving him a hat trick of Black Belt levels in Jun Fan Gung Fu, Kali (Filipino Martial Arts) and Kickboxing. Well done David!
