Ty Campos Stick-Fighting Workshop a Success
Filipino arts instructor Ty Campos visited our Academy on Saturday, Feb. 11, 2023 and trained a roomful of martial artists in some important skills.
At our school, we do not have a closed philosophy about other arts. Although we teach American Shaolin, we invite skilled martial artists from other styles in to teach us skills that can improve our ability as martial artists.
In Saturday's workshop, Mr. Campos trained us in double-stick drills, single-stick disarms, and some single-stick techniques that turn into chokes. He also taught some empty-hand Filipino boxing.
Ty's major influence and instructor is Guro Rick Faye, Head Instructor of the Minnesota Kali Group (MKG). Ty has also earned an instructor certification under Guro Faye, and also instructor certification in Lee Jun Fan Gung Fu, Jeet Kune Do and Filipino Martial Arts under Guro Dan Inosanto. While training at MKG, He has also achieved Khun Kru In Muay Thai under Ajarn Chai (TBA), and CSW Coach Level I under Sensei Erik Paulson.
We look forward to training with him again in the future.
