19–21 July |Toronto, Canada

It was a great honour and privilege for our Chief Instructor Alvin Guinanao to be invited again for the 3rd year running at Zirger Academy of Martial Arts. An academy of excellence in everything they do and teach.

Alvin covered ground-fighting, conditioning the body using the silat postures, the importance of 3 men drill and free flow. All the participants did amazing especially those training for the first time.

BIG thanks to Guro Mike Allen for hosting/organising this amazing event; to Guro Shawn Zirger and Sifu Ryan Kennedy for giving SBL a home in their academy.

A special thank you to Guru Jason Neff for coming from the US and in assisting in Alvin’s demo.

 If you live in Toronto and interested in learning SBL or other martial arts, Zirger Academy is the place to be. They are all professional, dedicated and hospitable.
