โ€œSURPRISE RETURN - MI MARTIAL ARTS FAMILY VISITATIONโ€ผ๏ธโ€

๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸLook who returned here with a surprise visit, a few weeks ago! Yes, MI Martial Artist - Ph2, STEVE MARSDEN & his beautiful & lethal wife, MIWSD Tiger Swan, [โ€˜HI-BEAMS!โ€™] Ms. CLARA MARSDEN. ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ

Steve & Clara moved out of state over three (3) years ago to Florida, and regardless of this move, they continue to be very much an integral Light in our MAGDA INSTITUTE - MI Martial Arts Family. ๐ŸŒŸ

During their time here in Reseda, [Los Angeles, CA] they trained for many years - highly dedicated, serious, disciplined, loyal, and would go the extra mile for everyone in helping others, with integrity, Heart and rock solid steadfastness.

Though we miss them in physical presence, the truth stands that there is no distance.

As with all our dedicated & loyal MI Martial Artists around the years, we share this unbreakable bond. There is no distance.

๐ŸŒŸ STEVE & CLARA ... We Salute You! ๐ŸŒŸ

Super 4-Day Training Camp
April 24, 2024 - MAGDA INSTITUTE
Los Angeles, CA / Day 1

This first day of our MI BUKA JALAN SILAT CAMP leaves us with no words, beyond, simply exemplary.

DAY ONE WAS ... OFF THE CHARTS. ๐ŸŒŸ

Everyone enjoyed learning on a fast clip, with the highest level of detailed sophisticated instruction, wide variety of techniques, history, culture, wicked deadly moves & applications for pure self-defense, real world scenarios & devastating finishes. So much offered, presented, opportunity given. All soaked IN.

Yes - This is the place.

The profound vastness of breadth, depth & knowledge from decades of research, training, experience & teaching by SIFU CASS MAGDA continues to inspire, educate & inform, on a level of pure mastery, in the moment, with a rarity of finesse, strength, power, and wisdom.

True, many of our attendees are all experienced Martial Artists, and many are professionals in fighting systems, with some new novices. Yet, although the power of learning here together, with serious accord is paramount, (and may prove daunting for some) SIFU CASS generously unlocks the most complex, technical & highly advanced esoteric moves into enjoyable, comprehensive
accessibility for every student & practitioner.

As SIFU CASS teaches through explosive examples, one must find their way with careful study & diligence, and without this search, you will never discover your True Self.

WE SHOW UP.
WE DONโ€™T QUIT.

See you again in a few hours!

We continue to educate, instruct, provide high level quality intensive Martial Arts training covering over 36 years, worldwide, in total combative, pure Self-Defense and real world applications for professionals, and those interested in a true study and deep dive in improving every aspect in their ability to defend themselves. Our authentic legacy and lineage is profound, in the lives we have had the honor of training, guiding and giving knowledge that has our integrity of trust, respect and unshakable bonds.

Back in 2022, esteemed veteran Martial Artist, a very close friend of Sifu CASS, Michael Belzer, an 8th Dan in Danzan Ryu Jujutsu, (amongst many other styles) has continued to train with SIFU CASS in BUKA JALAN PENTJAK SILAT, and encouraged so many of his personal colleagues, instructors and students to do the same, resulting in a highly successful, well attended BUKA JALAN SEMINAR EVENT at our school back in February 2024.

Here, is a wonderful example how one should live ... continue to train, learn and deepen your skills on higher levels. Many who attended Sifu CASSโ€™ BUKA JALAN SILAT SEMINAR in February 2024 were already BLACK BELT Instructors, Teachers, School Owners, Seasoned Martial Artists with over 20-30 years of experience. And the BEAT GOES ON ... The Life, Love, Camaraderie, Respect.

Thank you, Mike (!) and for all of You in our great MAGDA INSTITUTE ARTS FAMILY & COMMUNITY for your impeccable loyalty, dedication and support.

See you all back on our concrete!
This 4-Day Camp is already on ... FIRE! ๐Ÿ”ฅ

WE ARE ONE.
