Second part of my time during the Vital Target Combat (VTC) event hosted by Unified Weapons Master (UWM). Check out the first part here.

Wolf in Lorica clothing

We were standing in the middle of the arena we’d be fighting in over the next few days, while we waited for the UWM leaders to announce the fight cards. I rocked back on my heels and took a few steps to get a feel for the surface. Didn’t want any surprises when the time came. Eventually we were Continue reading

When The Wolf went to UWM, Part 1

First part of my time during the Vital Target Combat (VTC) event hosted by Unified Weapons Master (UWM). Click here to check out the second part!

I’ve been meaning to write this post for some time now. As you may recall, my last post was about how I’d gotten picked as one of the first fighters to fight in Unified Weapon Master’s (UWM) test event.

The intention was to write this post once my fight video from the test event had been published online, but alas. Shortly after they published the first fight video, Continue reading

I am fighting in UWM!

Again, it’s been a while since the last post but rest assured I’ve kept busy!

Unified Weapons Master (UWM) finally went out with their ‘Call to Arms’ early this year, announcing that they were looking for fighters for their inaugural fight event. After completing Continue reading

Ardent Heart – the Story

The story behind Ardent Heart, written to illustrate the inner workings of a Capoeirista. A completely fictional piece of my own imagination, with several creative liberties taken.AH01

Note – Capoeira is one of the more unique martial arts due to its close ties to Brazilian culture, and its strong focus on qualities you normally don’t find in Eastern martial arts. Cunning, slyness and charisma are held in high regard. The Capoeirista (Capoeira practitioner) has a tendency to be flamboyant, cocky, charming and will find it hard to resist a worthy challenge. In the world of fighters, the Capoeirista is the ultimate rogue. A crooked smile, a glint in the eye, a chuckle and a solid belief in one’s own worth. Continue reading

Lobosblog.com presents – Ardent Heart

Finally Ardent Heart is ready to be published! This has been a labour-of-love long in the making, a true team effort that could not have happened without the following talents:

Ming Ng, who handled the cinematography and editing. Check out more of his work here.

Bethany Levy, who handled design and visual effects. To see more of her work, have a look at her website.

Dudu Capoeira, a talented Capoeira musician and teacher who supplied the music. You can buy his music via his website, or on iTunes. Check out his website!

Inspiration came from this awesome ballet clip, which got me thinking Continue reading

Photoshoot – Capoeira

Was going through old material and found this old collection of images. We paid a fortune to have a couple of collages printed as proper portraits, don’t ask me how much we paid as I’m still upset. So I’m putting the best of the Capoeira ones up here to get my money’s worth. And don’t ask me the name of the studio – I won’t be recommending them, those freaking overpriced bloodsuckers. Admittedly, there are some pretty cool shots in there.

If you’re wondering what Capoeira is, read this.

Photoshoot – Cathedral

Got together with my friend Prab for a great photoshoot at Sydney’s St Mary’s Cathedral. The combination of the formal outfit and the classy nature of the Chinese straightsword just begged for it.

Over 300 pictures were taken, where about half of them were decent. I’ve picked the top 11 for your viewing pleasure. For more photographic greatness, visit his Flickr page and check out his Facebook page!
