Spring 2016 USHF Seminar Postponed

Dear USHF members,
I am writing to inform you that we unfortunately must postpone the 2016 Spring Seminar that was scheduled on April 9th. The USHF Executive Committee would like to express our thanks to Sherrie Henry and the College of DuPage for their generosity and hospitality in offering to host the seminar. We hope that we can soon schedule another seminar so that our members may be able to experience their new facilities.

Spring Seminar Postponed

USHF Members,

After discussion with host ISU representatives, the USHF has decided to postpone the Spring USHF Seminar that was to be held in Terre Haute, IN this weekend on Saturday, February 21st due to weather and travel concerns for many of our attendees and presenters.
We were hoping the forecast would change, but it has only become progressively grim.
We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause, but the safety of our members and teaching faculty are of primary concern to us.

The USHF Spring Seminar “snow date” is April 18th (more of a Spring date anyway).
It will be held on the ISU campus in Terre Haute. The presentation slate will remain the same unless a schedule conflict should arise with one of the presenters.

Take care, stay warm and safe and we will see you in April!

Patrick Kelly
President, United States Hapkido Federation

2015 Spring Seminar Details

The Spring Seminar will be held February 21st at Indiana State University, from 9:00am-5:30pm.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Order of events:

9:00 – 9:30 – Registration

USHF Schools must bring an updated roster with USHF membership details in order for students to receive school membership discount.  See our website for membership details details or speak with the USHF Secretary at the event.

 ~~~~~~~~~

9:30 – 11:00 – Anthony J. Oliveira

Alternate Situational Defense Responses & New Situational Self-Defense Drills

New and alternate responses to the standard USHF Situational self-defense drills taken from other arts, with an emphasis simplicity, speed, and utilizing weight and leverage to deal with larger attackers. New situational attacks and responses will also be presented.

Required Equipment:  Vinyl, powder-free, disposable gloves (preferred) or hand sanitizer.

We’ll be biting hands in some of these drills. The gloves keep things sanitary. Vinyl for people with latex allergies. Powder-free because nobody wants a mouth full of talcum powder. Disposable because… you’re probably not going to want them back afterwards.

 ~~~~~~~~~

An alumnus of the IU martial arts program, Anthony “Tony” Oliveira has accumulated 20+ years of martial arts experience.  He focuses on integrating techniques from various arts into a cohesive whole for real world self-defense, particularly against taller and larger opponents (that’s everybody). He has studied Hapkido, Kenpo, Kali, Silat, JKD, Judo and kickboxing.  He is also a licensed attorney in the state of Indiana.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
11:15 – 12:45 – Brandon Sieg
Joint Locking to Set Up Striking
Striking and locking should not be compartmentalized tactics. We often practice blowing smoke (striking) to set up our joint locks, but many neglect the other way around. Joint locking doesn’t have to end in a control but rather can set up finishing strikes. At the very least, locks and strikes should be used more interchangeably for better overall flow and having a more fluid back up plan.

~~~~~~~~~

Brandon Sieg has practiced martial arts for over 30 years and Hapkido for over 20. He holds a 5th dan in the USHF and a 6th dan in the Korea Hapkido Federation, as well as 14 other martial arts certifications. He serves as the USHF Vice President and is the Martial Arts Coordinator at DePauw University and co-owner of Gentry Martial Arts in Martinsville IN. He is also an author and expert witness on martial arts related fields.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Punch and Weapon Defense Training Drills

Required Equipment: Training Knife, and a Rattan Stick

~~~~~~~~~

Arlo started training Shorin Ryu Karate at age 13, and has since trained in Hapkido, Aikido, Japanese Jujitsu, Chi Gong, Shotokan Karate, Kali, Arnis, Jeet Kune Do, Tai Chi Chuan, Brazilian Jujitsu, Chin-na and Silat.  Arlo has been an instructor for Indiana University’s Martial Arts Program since 2004 and currently teaches Hapkido, Tai Chi Chuan, Jeet Kune Do, Escrima, Self-Defense, Billiards and Archery.  He is a 4th Degree black belt with the United States Hapkido Federation and has received his Martial Concepts 2nd level Apprentice Instructor in Jeet Kune Do and Kali.
