On September 17th / 18th 2022 the Double Impact Seminar took place in the olympic Wrestling hall from 1936. The instructors were GM Bobby Taboada (Taboada Balintawak) and GM Datu Dieter Knüttel (Modern Arnis).
It was an exceptional seminar with about 130 participants from Poland, Czech Republic, Italy, France, the Nethlands and from Germany.
This is part 1 of several videos which will document all the teaching of both Grandmasters. This is for everybody, who participated and want to keep the memorys of the seminar alive but also for those, who could not make it and who can get an impression and all the techniques and concepts from the seminar.
This seminar was not a competiotion of the styles but training with friends.
