Balance Martial Arts Seminar

Honestly, I wish I could have written up a great summary of the seminar, but I fried my brain pretty badly by taking photographs. I had so much fun, but I was going the entire time and didn’t really stop until we got home. It was a 6-hour drive there. Check in to a frankly terrible hotel experience. Then dinner at a nice Korean place, then the next day was go-go-go.

Sensei Gilbert wrote an amazing summary of the seminar that he posted up here.

I haven’t had a chance to get the photographs off my camera or the video off my camcorder. I only pulled stuff from my phone, which I’m learning was very helpful. Short videos were easier to record on my phone.

Here’s the footage just from my cellphone.


  • Manuel Byers – Chito Ryu
  • Bob Noel – Uechi Ryu
  • Dan Gilbert – Aikido
  • Darren Gilbert – Isshin Ryu
  • Chris Moulinier – Shoring Ryu
  • Alex Wall – Wing Chun Kung Fu
  • Steven Gower – Uechi Ryu


  • Chesseley Robinson – TaeKwonDo
  • Richard Rosenthal – Largo Mano Escrima
  • Chris Moulinier – Shinkage Ryu Kenjutsu

We had an amazing lunch at Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar. Oh my gosh. That place was epic. We missed some of the seminars because we took the full lunch hour as a break. But it was worth it. My SO is still on the keto diet. He’s lost about 30 pounds so I did not want to set back his progress. They served pizza at the seminar. Urgh, on that note, I need to get back to intermittent fasting.

It was such a fantastic seminar. We got to meet so many insightful, traditional martial artists at this event. I honestly can’t wait for it to happen again next year! I was mildly frustrated at myself for leaving behind two of my camcorder batteries. I’m still looking around for one of them right now. Gosh, how easily I seem to lose stuff.

Anywho. Thanks for stopping by and reading!
