Manonuda new year’s resolutions 2011
Happy new year to all!
So, this feels like the right moment to list up some of the upcoming stuff from Manonuda for the year 2011. Are these resolutions? Why not. Here's the list, broken down into sections.
As you may notice at the moment of this writing some section are still to be activated.
The Video section will show Manonuda in action. Yeah, there will be loads of videos. The section will have different categories: Trailers, Instructional, and others.
The Community section will be opened as soon as possible and will be a sort of "Facebook" for Martial Arts, with Groups, Forums, Profiles and many social network features.
The Extras section is actually the next section to come. The section will contain a "Bruce Lee's Corner", "Quotes for Martial Arts", probably a "Download page" (Terminology Sheets, Manonuda wallpapers, …) and other things.
And of course, there are lots of articles that are in preparation and which will be published on the Blog section. Believe me, as of today I got over 30 titles for articles that need to be finished and published.
Oh, and there will be an additional page called "Meet the team", under the Club section, with a little profile for every Manonuda member.
Also, all of the Manonuda profiles on social sites like Twitter, YouTube and Facebook will be improved.
We'll be giving many Seminars and Workshops in Jeet Kune Do, Kali, Silat, MMA. If you wonder what a Workshop stands for, well, that's a seminar with a focus on one particular aspect of a style or program (Chi Sao, Clinch, Pummeling, Takedowns, Sparring, Hubud, …).
Also, we will start the training in Manonuda SDP, a self-defense program taught in a seminar-format. More information will be found on the Manonuda SDP page.
Manonuda Karaesyan Silat
My personal approach and research to Silat styles lead me to define my own Silat program. It's called Karaesyan Silat. Of course, more info will be available in the future, and in time, videos will be published about the system as well.
We're going to be out there! Flyers, Business Cards, and Posters will be designed and printed.
Other things that are on their way are Tests in Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do, Kali, Karaesyan Silat, MMA, to assign levels to students.
Also, we will hopefully get mew mats for ground-fighting. Oh, and I definitely will make new music playlists for training.
Manonuda students expectationsThis year from my students I expect even more involvement in the whole Manonuda experience: presence at regular classes and seminars/workshops, more participation on the Manonuda website activity, training harder (and have fun with it). And as usual I hope they really get to integrate the Practice and its benefits into their life.
So, this sounds like a lot of things, but believe me, they're all going to happen. Some sooner than others, but it's all happening. And I'm sure that even more exciting things, which are not on this list at this moment, will happen in the Manonuda world this year.
So, once again, I wish you all a happy, exciting, new year 2011!
