Martial Blade Concepts Progressive Skills Seminar, Buckeye Combatives

Columbus, Ohio has one of the strongest concentrations of high-level MBC practitioners in the country. Taking full advantage of that resource, this special 2-1/2-day event will focus on advanced skill development in all aspects of MBC, CBC, and their related disciplines. As the last Michael Janich seminar before the 2019 Martial Blade Camp, it will also serve as a “pre-test” evaluation and tune-up for MBCers aspiring to test for proficiency and instructor certification.

The topics we will address during this special event will include:

  • The latest evolutions of MBC and CBC tactics, techniques, and training methods

  • MBC drill integration and the strategies of the “Chess Game”

  • Skill integration and in-fight weapon deployment

  • Teaching and coaching methodologies

  • MBC’s triangular footwork, off-balancing, and throwing

  • Foot trapping, kicking, sweeping, and low-line destruction

  • Integration of low-line skills into unarmed skills, CBC, MBC, and stick tactics

Although the goals of this seminar are optimized for advanced skill development, it is open to participants of all skill levels. Students new to MBC will work in skill-appropriate study groups with designated MBC instructors as part of their instructor development process.

The seminar will be conducted at:

Buckeye Combatives
3881 S. High Street
Columbus, Oh 43207
