Reid's Premier Martial Arts Open House September 9, 2017
Reid's Premier Martial Arts held its annual Open House on Saturday September 9, 2017. The event consisted of a Bully Proof workshop for children ages 5-12 years of age. The program taught proper body posture and vocal techniques, strategies for deescalation of bullying as well as actual physical techniques that children can use to protect themselves. Plus everyone got pizza and all of our visiting participants got a chance to break a board and earn their "White Belt" at Premier Martial Arts.
The second event of the day was the Open House Martial Arts demonstration. Premier Martial Arts Marietta demonstrated forms, techniques and applications form our KIdz 8-12 year old program, the Adult Kung Fu program, the Adult Internal Arts program, the Adult Krav Maga program and from the Kuntao/Silat Program. This diverse showing of martial knowledge allowed spectators to witness the wide diversity of material and training that is available at Premier Martial Arts Marietta.
The third event of the day was the Tai Qi & Qigong workshop. 7th Degree Senior Master Michael Reid explained what the Three Treasures of Chinese Qigong are, defined what is Qi is, it's 5 primary sources, what is Tai Qi and how all of this fits together. Workshop participants then worked one on one with PMA Internal Instructors receiving foundational Tai Qi instruction. As a special treat Senior Master Reid taught everyone Swimming Dragon Qi Gong from the Blue Dragon Qigong Lineage
The fourth and final event of the day featured Krav Maga. Instructor Brenda Eaddy made sure that everyone understood the principles of Krav Maga. This class featured physical conditioning, stress dress drills, empty hand solutions to real life problems, knife and gun defense.
Reid's Premier Martial Arts would like to thank everyone who performed, instructed, participated and came out to support the event. We are very happy that we were able to share very valuable information and positively affect the lives of participants from age 4 to 70. Thank you for allowing us to be a positive influence in your lives!
