"Grandmaster Perkins:

I hope that all is going well for you. I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated the training last month. You really have an outstanding group of people that work with you.

"From the second that I stepped into the gym, I was greeted with nothing less than professionalism and comradeship."

From the second that I stepped into the gym, I was greeted with nothing less than professionalism and comradeship. Special thanks to Patrick. He was right by my side giving extra details the whole time. His low line kicks and strikes were constant reminders to be more aware of my stance. Ari was another huge help to me.. Being that he had studied Wing Chun for several years, he knew exactly what was going through my head during contact flow. I can still hear him now, “Don’t think Wing Chun. Put the energy in your legs not your arms.”  Contact flow with Masters Ridenhour and Kovsky was addicting. Every detail that came from them was so well explained that I didn’t want them to stop talking to me. The skill that these two gentlemen possess is absolutely incredible.  Joe (I think I may have met two of them) was a big help with getting a better understanding on rooting. During contact flow with him, I was trying to yield without rooting. He was very patient to take time and help me improve in this area. One of the highlights of the seminar was, Master Watson. Although I didn’t have the opportunity to meet him, I could tell just by his demeanor that he is a very friendly and respectful  gentlemen. His ground fighting demonstration was jaw dropping. I’ve seen this demonstration on the DVD, but seeing it live was a whole different experience. I have never seen anyone move with such fluidity on the ground.

What I enjoyed most about the seminar was that learning  jiu-jitsu was not a prerequisite. I have been to several ground fighting seminars in the past, and although some of them were good, the techniques still required you to grapple a grappler. The concepts instructed in this seminar can easily be used by those with no background in ground fighting. In fact, I was able to come back to my agency with more ammunition on why we shouldn’t be teaching police officers jiu-jitsu (A battle that I have been fighting for the past few years now). It’s just crazy to me how many people believe that grappling is good for law enforcement.

"I cannot find words to explain how much I was in awe with you, Grandmaster Perkins. I wish I could have spent all day with you, just soaking up as much knowledge as possible. I can’t imagine all of the trial and error over the years that went into developing this style. What you have done is create a system that addresses every aspect of self defense. The development of the art itself is pure art work. There’s only one word that comes close to describing you and your work – genius."

I cannot find words to explain how much I was in awe with you, Grandmaster Perkins. I wish I could have spent all day with you, just soaking up as much knowledge as possible.

The development of the art itself is pure art work. There’s only one word that comes close to describing you and your work – genius.

I will continue to work hard on the concepts that I have learned. Also, I plan on attending as many seminars  and privates as possible. Take care, sir."
