Like my bruises on Facebook

Hi All,

Site regulars will be interested to know that a Facebook page has been set up around the “Ask me about your bruises” T-Shirts and the great cause they are raising funds for!

What you all need to do is get a T-Shirt, get your picture taken in it, and then get it up on the Facebook page! In the meantime, could all Facebook users be sure to give the page a “like” and spread the word on this great way for karateka to look cool and do a good thing! Thank you very much! I’ll now hand you over to Eric!

All the best,

Iain

Marc MacYoung in UK, September 2011

Hi All,

Here is your chance to train with Marc MacYoung in September! I’ve been a fan of Marc’s work for decades and it was great when I got to meet him in person last year. He’s a great guy, with a superb teaching style, and his material is as practical as it gets. This is not an opportunity to miss so be sure to contact Mick and let him know you would support this event. Mick Franklin is the organiser you can find all the details below. Be sure to contact him ASAP.

All the best,

Iain

Since Steve Williams and I first wore the Extreme Impact T-Shirts in the first five Extreme Impact units, people have been asking if they can buy the shirts.
