Seminar with Mark Weir

Master Ogborne has annouced that Mark Weir has agreed to do another seminar for P.U.M.A.!

There will be two 1½ hour seminars from 1pm to 4pm on Saturday 18th April 2015. The seminars will be held at:

Alveston Hill,
Thornbury,
South Glos.
BS35 3JB

At the last Seminar, Mr Weir showed off his immense fighting skills teaching stretching, kicking drills, fight strategy, and fitness drills. To everyone’s suprise he donned his P.U.M.A. approved sparring equipment and sparred all the students in a controlled, friendly manner. He has agreed to do much the same with added stand-up self-defence.

Some of you who do not know of Mark Weir will be pleasantly surprised with his friendly professional manner. He started competing in the same team as Master Gayle and Master Ogbourne, representing Taekwon-do around world at a variety of different tournaments. He won several National, International and World titles, including the World Team Championships in 1991 with Team England (a team which included a young Mark Ogborne.

In 2002, having won several World TKD individual titles, Mr Weir shot to fame after taking up Mixed Martial Arts (cage fighting). He topped the bill at the first UFC (Ultimate Fight Championship) in the UK at the Albert Hall. The exciting up-and-coming fighter had a match up against Eugene “The Wolf" Jackson, who had a hard man reputation. Mr Weir knocked him out cold after only 10 seconds with an axe kick-jab combination.

The seminars will cost £20 per person; if you would like to attend, please speak to Mr Cooper.
