Brandon James Schild

My name is Brandon James Schild, I have been studying martial arts for around 11years. I was born in Humboldt, Kansas on March 10 1982. My first experience with any type of martial arts was around the age of 6. My uncle used to show my a few martial art techniques, which he was an instructor at the YMCA and instructed in JUDO. Over the years I became accustomed to various martial arts from Tae Kwon Do, Karate, Judo and Jujitsu. Which these were going to be my basic foundation of what I really enjoyed to do. I began to take part in a class which was American Jujitsu Academy (which was more of an American/Brazilian jujitsu), my instructor had several different people who came down to do seminars. They were all well rounded from Muay Thai to Wing Chun to Chin Na, all sorts of styles we got to get involved in to open our mind set. In the year 2001 I joined the US Army Military Police Corps, in the end of 2001 I achieved my first black belt in mixed martial arts at Fort Belvior Virginia. My foundation was formed of all different bases, yet I personally chose Wing Chun for my self, because of my hand reach which helps in trapping and hand immobilizing. At the beginning of 2006 I had became an instructor in Jeet Kune Do concepts, Arnis De Mano, silat, and Kino Mutai under the OFT/ESS certification program. I am now stationed in Korea, still in the Military Police Corps training soldiers at our earliest convenience. I am currently working on a martial art book that I have been trying to compile knowledge for over several years. I have been studying philosophy and anatomy and physiology as well with martial arts which help create a well rounded being. I am a lifetime member with the ICMAUA with 2 foundation arts which are Instinctive Fighting; BASIC INSTINCT and Modern Martial Art Concepts, they both relates to one another but one is primarily used for direct learning for defensive fighting techniques as the other is used as a philosophical science aspect with developmental learning.

 

 

Frank M. Schneider

Born Aug.21,1964 he comes in contact with martial arts at the age of five years through older “playground friends" who trained in Judo and JiuJitsu and teach him some martial arts basics. After a while the young Frank started in a club at the end of 6 years with Judo. In the following years he studied JiuJitsu, Kempo, Aikijitsu, Okinawa Karate and Kobudo, also in Ninjutsu and other arts he get insights, always trying to enrich his knowledge. Furthermore in korean arts like Hapkido, TangSooDo and Taekwondo he has expertise,which leads him finally to traditional chinese techniques as Shaolin KungFu(Kempo), Dju-Su and KongSoTao.

As he met his mentor and friend, grandmaster and Soke,Benedetto Stumpf,Hanshi(10th Dan Kempo Karate/Jiu Jitsu, 9th Dan Okinawa Karate and higher degrees in several other Budo arts) he found one Sensei who stands for all he search for: excellence and spirit in the budo arts, humility,dedication to the arts and always stand up and deal with all aspects of life masterly...

Until now Frank M. Schneider has studied under various european and asian grandmasters and masters like D.B. Stumpf, Dr.Min Tah Jao, R. Seihsler, K. Tose, T. Nobetsu, S.Sato, H.Ochi, J. Kim, K. Poestges, D. Thürnau, O.Rumann, W.Kritzler e.t.c.

So Frank M. Schneider also searches for excellence of body and mind through absorbing what is usefull in Budo to become an humble human being...

Until know he reached some higher Dan degrees and titles in the national and international martial arts community through Budo as way of life. He acts as student, instructor, coach, seminar participant, tournament player and official in some recognized organisations.

Holding tournament results like various national titles in Kata,Kumite and Self Defense, a third place in european championships and other regional titles he was formerly also succesfull in competition. Today his approach in the martial arts is to be an role model through strong dedication to Budo leading all interested people through Budo as a good way to succeed in life, regardless of race, religion, politics and so on.

In 2001 he was awarded the title of Soke in his “own" art founded and developed since 1992 under the direction of his sensei Grandmaster Stumpf, Soke. So STREET COMBAT KARATE is his essence in realistic self defense of over 30 years study and instruction of asian martial arts, police tactical defense and anti-rape programs conducted by Frank M. Schneider. Helping to establish and promote SCK and real self defense, the WSCSO - WORLD STREET COMBAT SYSTEMS ORGANIZATION was formed with permission and consent of some worldwide respected & notable masters and grandmasters, such as european grandmaster Professor D.B.Stumpf and chinese grandmaster Dr. Min Tah Jao.

The WSCSO promotes dedication and seriousity in the arts and foster a band of friendship among all martial artists worldwide as a overall budo family. So Grandmaster Schneider say´s “ go in a foreign country in an foreign dojo, with respect and reserve, and you are always heartly welcomed as a friend - that is BUDO.."

After nearly 33 years study and research also in traditional Budo he has incorporated his views and opinions through traditional study in his own approach of instructing, sparring(Kumite) forms(Kata) and self defense (Bunkai Jutsu)- which resulted in the formulation of his traditional experience in Budo: YOSAISHIKAIKAN BUDO, which consists of traditional karate, jiujitsu, kobujutsu, kempo and weapon methods.

So Frank M. Schneider received and lastly accepted proudly in 2002 the titles of Soke Shodai as 10th Degree Red Belt in Street Combat Karate (SCK) and as 9th Dan Hanshi in Yosaishikaikan Budo (after he denied and don´t accepted in the previous years any 10th Dan ranking in his own style, which he was granted by international serious and notable organizations). Also in traditional Budo he holds now an 9th Dan Hanshi in Kempo Karate, Nihon Kempo

Jiu Jitsu and a 9th Dan Sijo ranking in Chinese Kenpo.

He was promoted in 2002 to Hachidan Okinawa Kempo Karate Do, Hanshi and Rokudan Okinawan Kobudo, Kyoshi.

He is a member as Instructor/ Master/ Grandmaster in some prestiguos Martial Art organizations, holding titles of Soke,Hanshi,Shihan,Kyoshi, Renshi,KwanJangNim to promote martial arts excellence, spirit and friendship with the martial arts community and budo family

Martin Sewer

Ph.D. M.S.

The martial arts career of Martin Sewer began at the age of seven with judo which he practised for over thirteen years. During that time he attended various courses ranging from educational issues to kuatsu (Japanese first aid). He became an judo instructor and soon discovered that he had pleasure and a great talent working with people and conveying the various aspects in martial arts.  

His unstoppable thirst for knowledge led him to other areas like Karate, Jiu-Jitsu and Boxing. Over the years he attended many tournaments and championships where he won numerous titles and awards.

While looking for new challenges he came in touch with Chinese Martial Arts which weren’t very popular in Switzerland at the time.

He learnt from different Chinese Masters different styles like Wushu, Choy Lay Fat, Kong Style Taj Chi Chuan. He travelled several times to China and Hong Kong to learn more about the Chinese way of life and its culture. There he gained a profound knowledge of  Chinese traditions and philosophy, which makes him a real expert in this area.

Through a ten animal Kung Fu system he eventually found his way to the South-Shaolin Hung Gar Kung Fu by meeting his future master Grandmaster Chiu Chi Ling from Hong Kong.

Sifu Martin Sewer became a closed door student of Grand Master Chiu Chi Ling who supported him above average. Sifu Martin Sewer practised with great enthusiasm and during a visit in Hong Kong in 1992 he was able to take the examination for master in presence of his Sifu Chiu Chi Ling and the Grand Masters Chiu Kau and Siu Ying (both disciples of Lam Sai Wing) which he passed successfully. He became president of the Swiss branch of the “International Chiu Chi Ling Hung Gar Kung Fu Association” and in the Year 1993 he opened the “Kung Fu School Martin Sewer” in Zürich where he personally ensures that his students learn traditional Hung Gar Kung Fu of very high quality. Since the opening of his school, the Chinese certified Sifu (Master) dedicates all his time to make this unique Kung Fu system more popular. He’s holding seminars all over Europe in order to pass on his precious knowledge to the next generations. So far, Dr. Martin Sewer received the following grades: 5th Dan World Kung Fu Association USA (1995), 5th Dan through Grand Master Chiu Chi Ling head of the Hung Gar Kung Fu system (2001), senior instructor Shaolin Hung Gar Kung Fu through USMA (2001), 6th Dan USMA (2002), Grand Master of the Martial Arts, MAA, IGC.

He’s also an active referee at national and international tournaments he’s licensed as follows: 1995 Referee A SAKEV, 2000 National Referee, I.C.K.F.; 2001 certified senior referee Shaolin Hung Gar Kung Fu, USMA.

He’s a respected member of renowned organisations such as the Hong Kong Martial Arts Ass. Ltd., International Chinese Kuoshu Federation, International Martial Arts Ass., International Grandmaster Comitee, Lifetime Member United States Martial Arts Ass. and the official Swiss Representative of the World Independent Chinese Martial Arts Federation. He is also represented in the recently opened Wong Fei Hung Museum in Foshan (China), which proofs that Master Martin Sewer is in the direct lineage of the real Hung Gar Kung Fu.

Nasiakos Spyros

I begin the martial arts from small age (7 years).

As the years past, I realized that this world had something that attracted me in a way that no other sport did. Therefore I chose to dedicate myself to this world, I have focused my training and lifestyle to achieve my goal.

After graduating high school, I enlisted as volunteer to the Hellenic Special Forces Rangers. Apart from the regular training I received the speciality of self-defence trainer. During that period me main responsibility was to prepper the new rangers for combat self-defence and offence in order to pass successfully the final evaluation before graduating the rangers academy.

After fulfilling my military obligations in 1993 Ι have started my first dojo.

In my carrier I have participated from 1981 to 2004 in national and international championships and received the athletic distinctions and titles

From 1996 to1998 I was instructor to private clubs, dojos and security bodies (military police, police and military).

I had the opportunity to study under the instructions of great teacher of the martial art community and after devotion and hard work I managed to receive recognition and titles in various systems.

IHolder of Ju Dan in the art of Seinshinryoku Ryu

Today after a small journey of 37 years in the martial art, I continue to teach and being taught in martial art styles, techniques and lifestyle by participating and presenting seminars all over the world.

I have my personal dojo and I.O.S.K.D.K.J.A has presence in 15 countries and in Greece we have 6 “dojos” and we grow.

Finally I would like to note that my involvement with the martial art the last 37 years have taught me, to leave within this dynamic family and embrace this way of leaving.

If you need any additional information or clarification please do not hesitate to contact me.

With kind regards,

Klahan Srisai

Klahan Srisai born in 1940, Kruengtep, Thailand he began his Martial Arts training almost as soon as he could walk, beginning in the art of Muay Thai.

He took part in many local and national Muay Thai bouts.

In 1954  along with his brother Toi  he joined a Karate class in Bangkok taught by  Sensei Shosin Nakamoto , he merely wanted to supplement his Muay Thai training for an up coming fight  he was aged 14 at that time. Although Shosin Nakamoto Sensei had been teaching Karate in Thailand for 7 years at this time it was not until 5 years later that he pomoted his leading student to Black Belt, Klahan Srisai..

Born on January 26, 1918, in Tomari Vilage, Okinawa, Shoshin Nakamoto began his life in the Martial Arts at the age of 6, studying karate under Tomari-te karate Master Seikichi Nakaema Sensei and also Grand master Chojun Miyagi (1888-1953). With rigorous daily training, young Shoshin attained the rank of Shodan, or first degree black belt, by the age of 18, and later began traveling across Asia with  fellow Black belts, promoting karate through demonstrations and exhibitions. On one of his visits to Thailand he became so impressed with the art of Muay Thai that he decided to stay there and study this art, while teaching his art of Karate.

While keeping the traditional aspects and discipline of Tomari-te Shoshin combined many techniques with his new art of Muay Thai, which he kept secret from his peers back in his homeland. Sensei Srisai became his number one student and eventually achieved the Rank of 8th Dan in Tomari-te 

After the death of Shoshin in 1984,  Klahan continued his studies in Karate and Kobudo under various instructors  and developed what he terms as Thai Free-style Karate. In 2000 Sensei Srisai was promoted to the rank  of 9th Dan Free-Style Karate by a committee of his peers form the various Martial Arts Disciplines in Thailand. He is also recognized as an 8th dan in Tomari Te Karate. W.S.C.S.K

WORLD SOKESHIP COUNCIL SEISHINRYOKU KAI and holds the rank of

4th Dan Seishinryuko Karate.

 

Sensei Srisai continues to teach today mainly to students who have already achieved the rank of 4th Dan so he can impart as much of his extensive knowledge as possible.

James Swallow-Gaunt

I started my Martial arts journey in the late 1980s where as i Teenager I was fascinated by them. I tried out the usual ones such as Karate and Judo but found them to be aggressive and in some cases quite technical. Whilst at School I began to fence. This started my passion for combat sports In 1987 I started Aikido and loved it the art or using someone else weight and momentum against them was just what i was looking for and the mentality of turning negative in positive really work for me. I studied Aikido right up to Joining the British Army and achieved by Brown Belt 1st Kyu + 1 Mon.

In the Early 1990s I joined the Royal Artillery .When joining the forces i was deployed in Northen Ireland in a counter Terrorism role I learnt military self defence which at the time was style based around the W.E Fairbairn fighting system "Defendu" When I left the forces i continued training and researching the art of self defence, the science and the law regarding self defence.

After all my research i have developed a self defence system that uses the British Army fighting system elements from jiu-Jitsu and aikido. This system takes into account the law and how are body acts under extreme aggression. I also takes into account our core skills and Bio mechanics to give a very effective self defence and fighting system. The system Senshi No Ken Budo is now recognised both BMABA and the International combat martial arts union & association (IMcMAUA)

I have my first manual published early this year and I am now also writing a book "The art of Practical self defence" which will use all my research to help people become more effective at self defence I hope to have this book finished later this year.

I currently run a number of self defence programs in schools for primary and secondary school schools in the South Yorkshire region. After a year in training assistant instructors in the new system we are ready to open 2 new clubs in September and I am looking to role it out this year.

I have also started a new self defence program working with the Scouts and Guides of south Yorkshire in which we teach personal safety and self defence to their members staff and kids alike.

 

I have a passion for all combat sports I am a fully qualified British Fencing coach who has study the art of Bartitsu which is the Victorian Mixed martial. I have re written and instruct Modern cane fencing to students across Yorkshire.

I am also a senior committee member & Senior development officer of the British Martial Arts and Boxing  Association,
