Masters on the Mountain 16 is about increased ability through age, personified by ‘Uncle’ Bill de Thouars, who only seems to hit harder and move faster the older her gets.
‘Uncle’ Willem de Thouars bequeaths his legacy! Master teachers from around the world investigate that training hall secret you’re not supposed to know – “why martial arts training so often fails on the floor.”
A new theme was introduced in this seminal martial arts weekend – QBUD (Quiet Breath Under Duress). A lot of friendship, training games and hard action are packed into this volume.
A new generation of master teachers continue Uncle Bill’s legacy with an increased emphasis on giving up body structure for energetic alignment and inner breath.
Masters on the Mountain is regarded as a premier martial arts seminar in the United States. This volume focuses on healing and harnessing the power of the unconscious mind. Also included is Uncle Willem de Thouars’ life’s work carried on by his senior master teachers!
