    May is a beautiful month in New Mexico! The days are warming up into the 80s & 90s and the nights are in the 50s & 60s. We plan to break the seminar into three parts each day, beginning at 9AM and ending at sunset with the end of the day dedicated to extemporaneous food, leisure, review, testing & practice.

    There is plenty of camping area along Tularosa Creek and 160 acres at the ranch, so there should be plenty of room for everyone to put up a tent,  throw down a sleeping bag or sling a hammock. There are also many motels within 20 miles. Everyone is welcomed to bring their families, children under 18 are welcome to participate without charge.

    Contact Sigung Joe Judt for more information.

    Good day folks. While I won’t be able to join you all, I will certainly be there in Spirit. I’ll have 9 trainers that will be with Pak Steve’s possession for the seminar that I made. These are trainers made after the World’s Fastest Knife, which Steve was having made as a live blade.

    For anyone interested in seeing a pic of them, please venture to my facebook page for Malabar Knives.I’m posting it this morning.Thanks!

    The plan is to spend a couple of days training and considering the primary principles of KunTao Silat’s combat applications.

    It will be critical for those who choose to attend to have a solid foundation in the KTS basics.

    PracticeLeaders are encouraged to attend, but also those who want to certify as Teachers because applications are required and training partners will be available for testing as well as the primary agenda. . . which is applications. :-)>
