Another overdue entry – last year, as I went competing again, I had the pleasure of getting acquainted with Sydney-based stuntman Stephen Murdoch.
Competing in both Traditional Weapons with a sword form from the Korean martial art Kummooyeh, as well as going into the Creative Weapons category with a tricking form with dual-wielding Kamas, Stephen showed both strong versatility as well consistent high quality.
But just as important was the respect he showed through it all, win or lose, both to martial arts in general as well as all the competitors he was up against. That is the kind of character that each instructor should try to foster in his students.
I enjoyed the video, thank you.
Good point about respect. I’ve been in involved in organizing Arnis tournaments and have seen athletes who were really skilled yet were disrespectful to the officials, and their competitors. Not to be emulated at all.
