AMOK! Seminar

April 01, 2017

Presented by Tom Sotis

Ultra-Functional Activities Seminar explores AMOK!’s advanced activities that go beyond common sparring and practices which produces a higher degree of functionality with both blades and empty hands.

Beyond Sparring

On Saturday, Tom will present different ways in which the highly valued activity of sparring is expanded upon to increase your fighting functionality. Most fighting methods use sparring as a one-size-fits-all activity used to experiment, discover solutions, and gain experience.  But sparring is not a one-size-fits-all activity, sparring has various modes, each with many variations, and they are specifically designed to Gain Experience, Conduct Experiments, and Discover Solutions. Beyond Sparring presents a detailed breakdown of the varied sparring modes and their variations for fighting with blades or with empty hands.

Beyond Practice

On Sunday, Tom will present advanced Practice activities to bring your knifework to a higher degree of functionality in chaos through superior recognition skills. Developing proper structure, range, and timing are the initial stage of developing any given technique but functionality in chaos will also require “reading the cues during chaos” and “countering from a less-than-ideal platform”. Beyond Practice presents a detailed breakdown on how to implement technique into the chaos of fighting when there varied tactics, changing pressure, and broken rhythm (unlike popular flow drills that don’t resemble actual fighting and develop skill at the wrong things).
