But today, I'd like to share one of my favorites: Master Chuck Gauss.
|Master Gauss is sometimes not a very nice man. I like that.|
I think he brings a practical point of view to our art. It's easy to get very nerdy and complex in what we do (my mind runs that way), and Master Gauss does a great job in simplifying it and making it accessible for all of us.
First off, check this out. It's chock full of win and awesomeness.
He also does a great job in showing applications. For example, here he is showing an application for a flashlight (with a short rattan stick standing in as a flashlight).
Master Gauss' partner in this video is +Brian Johns at +Bamboo Spirit Martial Arts Centre Ltd, an excellent martial artist and Arnis player in his own right.
I can't share everything that's awesome about Master Gauss here, because this post would be a mile long. Check out his YouTube channel and his school's web site http://www.gaussmartialarts.com/.
If you like Modern Arnis, you couldn't go wrong learning from Master Gauss.
