Hi, Hi, Hi, my name is Christopher Morris and welcome to my blog for Sef Shin - The Secrete Combat of Fire.
This is a new system of martial art which is currently being taught by the Supreme Grandmaster himself Mehdi Zand. And I can’t tell you how fortunate I am to be learning directly from the man who has recently been awarded International Martial Arts Hall of Fame - Grand Master Founder of the Year by the International Martial Arts Times Magazine. I think this is a great honour.
Here’s the articles so just click it for the details.
Now here’s a little back ground about me J
I am a person who loves martial arts and I have tried most of the systems out there. From Shotokan (yeah everyone has done that one) to Wing Chun to Aikido, Kendo, Jujitsu and Kickboxing. I love keeping fit and find the best way to keep myself motivated is to train in the martial arts.
I used to be a podgy little boy but after my first Karate class I never looked back and to this day I keep myself fighting fit.
Recently I moved to north London and joined my local gym where I saw an interesting group of individuals practicing martial arts. As I watched the training I found myself intrigued and drawn to the positive energy of the class. It didn’t’ take me long to put my name forward and join up.
Thank goodness I did, because after a few months of training I have already reached a level which I never before thought possible. I love this system because it really does promote speed and accuracy within me. My power too has never been so, solid.
Fortunately for me the Founder and Supreme Grandmaster of the system is still teaching, his name is Mehdi Zand. It was because of him I actually signed up. After I saw his incredible speed, co-ordination and power I was smitten. I just had to learn Sef Shin.
Even though the classes have many students who are very good I really hope that I can do the system justice. That’s why I put this blog out here, so that anyone in the London area looking for a great martial arts school can learn about Sef Shin. You won’t be disappointed. J
If you want to know more just Google it, there’s loads of information out there.
Oh there is one more thing I forgot to mention. Sef Shin incorporates sword fighting. It has its own name called Shamshir . So we get to practice that too. I have to admit I never done sword before but it really is great. It makes me move in a way I never did before and it really makes me move faster, not just with hands but also my foot work.
Having seen Grand Master Zand perform sword himself and I can honestly say he is nothing but an inspiration to me and all the students in his classes.
Hi guys it is me again and thank you for showing interest in my Blog. I just wanted to tell you that few weeks ago I passed the test for my orange belt. I really love practicing this art and i can’t wait to become a black belt or become a Sefshin warrior- what an honour that Grandmaster Zand was present during my examination. Before I go I wanted to say that Grandmaster Zand was on the cover of the martial art times magazine. And there is a 7 page interview inside, so I will add a link to the interview so you can read it for yourself. If anyone wants to discuss anything to do with Sefshin, just contact me and I’ll be happy to give any information. I have heard that he will be opening another class in a different location soon.
