Blitz Magazine, December 2014

For Gary Palmer, martial arts have been part of his life for as long as he can remember.

“I started with boxing,” says Gary, “I grew up with it. I come from a boxing family. My grandfather was Dave Palmer, who was both heavy and light-heavyweight champion of Australia. He held several titles – that was back in the days when they weren’t so strict about weight; they let you fight up a division. Continue reading

Peter Aerts, like all ‘great’ athletes, is most often defined in terms of the length of his career and the titles he’s won. True definition, however, is a matter of establishing something in comparison with its contemporaries which, for a fighter, is in terms of their opponents. Continue reading

Victoria doesn’t have a reputation as a hot-bed of Thai Boxing culture; rather, it is traditionally held as the stomping-ground of kickboxing. Cain ‘Insane’ Brunton is working to change that, one fight at a time. He tells JARROD BOYLE about his recent WMC State Title win and the possibilities it has opened up for him, including a spot on JWP’s Caged Muay Thai, a promotion as Queensland-crazy as anyone could hope to get.

“The problem in India is not that there are rapists,” says Cheryl Lynch-Gardner, co-founder of Budo-Ryu Kempo. “[Here in Australia there are] Rape Crisis Centers, counseling; there is a system. There’s no damn system over there.”

Cheryl’s involvement in the martial arts has led to her from Sydney’s western suburbs, halfway around the world to teach self-defense to Indian women. It seems like a practical fix for a universal problem, but in the macro, Cheryl’s work is part of a widespread effort to turn the tides of history and culture, one person at a time. Continue reading

Blitz Martial Arts Magazine, Vol.28, No.11, November 2014

Combat Karate is a truly modern martial art that integrates skills and techniques from a variety of styles, based on founder Martin Day’s considerable experience in the fighting arts. Few instructors can claim a pedigree equal to Martin’s. Day served in the British Army for twenty years before founding his own style.

“I can’t say everything for security reasons,” says Martin at the outset of our discussion, “Because I signed the ‘Official Secrets Act’ when I left the British Army.” Continue reading
