The martial arts are an important part of many cultures that open our minds, strengthen our bodies, and bring us together with people we may not otherwise have ever known.
Culture Toronto has taken many of you on many martial arts adventures from learning the European broad sword, the Filipino art of Kali or even archery. We've introduced you to many experts where over several hours we learn some great techniques from some of the best teachers, however, it is a shame that as the weeks progress without regular practice, that progress dwindles, and some techniques are forgotten - there is also something valuable in the intersections between warrior arts that may occur to us over meeting different trainers and exploring different styles. Culture Toronto would like to present a unique training opportunity where we will explore striking, grappling and swordplay in a positive, encouraging, non-dogmatic environment. Come join Culture Toronto's Warrior Arts Club!
Learn, hone your techniques and strengthen your body while embodying principles of success! We're going to have a ton of fun!
In terms of the class structure, each month will have weekly themes as follows:
Week 1 - Striking via Boxing and Muay Thai
Week 2 - Grappling and Tachiwaza (throwing techniques) via Judo
Week 3 - Sword Fighting via Eastern and Western methods
Week 4 - Exploration day, class trips, special guests, technique sharing, etc. - subject to class vote and opportunities
This club will be lead by Sherif Badr who has been teaching Muay Thai at UTSC for over 10 years, now held in UofT's PANAM Olympic facility, and has learned Judo for years as well. He is an overall enthusiast of martial arts, health and wellness. Sherif has taken many of you on adventures around the city through Culture Toronto and can't wait to bring out your best in a more substantial way through this 2 month course.
Where and When:
Saturdays at 2-4pm @ Warrior Muay Thai, 68 Railside Rd b, North York, ON M3A 3P8, Canada
