A willing time for Martial Artists

THERE’S no doubting that students at Diamond Martial Arts benefit from learning from the best.

Having just had Korean taekwondo instructor Sabom Park pass on his knowledge at the Coffs Harbour centre, students’ knowledge has again been expanded this time by John B Will who is considered to be one of the world’s best martial art practitioners.

Diamond Martial Arts hosts Will Machado Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) three times a year and this time there was plenty to take in with Will just releasing his third book titled Rogue Black Belt – Passion and Purpose as well as recently being asked to develop a close quarter combat system for a major airline

Students enjoyed learning advanced techniques including guard escapes and head arm choke applications.

While Will’s technical ability is beyond reproach his world experience of training and living in Asia, Brazil and America is what sets him apart from other masters.

His wisdom and wealth of experience is undeniably a motivating factor and contributes to the aura that is felt when he teaches.

The master is set to return to Coffs Harbour in July to continue the series.
