Seminar In "The Dungeon" 10-19-09

A Seminar that involved Close-Combat techniques held in a location that has a lot of historical importance to anybody who has ever trained with the late Carl Cestari. If you've ever even seen a Cestari video, you'll probably recognize the venue.

This clip shows a close-in, reverse-grip method of using a cane (or walking stick) against an assailant. The method comes from a book written by a man named Bonafant in Argentina, sometime around 1912.

The instructors are the irrascible Ralph Grasso, and the indefatigable Clint Sporman!

Awesome to see Ralph G. in action, I would have loved to have been there to learn from him.

A good time was had by all! Especially after the seminar was over and we all went to Hooters for a late lunch!!
