Aikido of Berkeley

Creative Self Defense

Strategies For Personal Safety and Empowerment

Having a plan, practicing Awareness and practicing a few basic techniques can help prevent you from becoming a victim of a crime. Aikido of Berkeley has asked Tammy Lee Anderson Sensei to teach a seminar on creative self-defense. Participants will have the opportunity to explore self-defense strategies not usually covered in a normal Aikido class, like responding to an attack in small spaces, and on the ground. We will build on what you already know from your Aikido practice learning to apply low-level responses to more lethal responses in a violent attack. We will explore strikes to major target areas, as well as nerve strikes, to shock and even disable an attack, using hands, elbows, feet, knees, and alternative weapons.
This seminar is for the experienced Aikido practitioner as well non-martial artist's.

About : Karaan/Sifu Glenn C. Abrescy

Karaan/Sifu Glenn Canonigo Abrescy, Grandmaster and Founder of Kemscrima-doh combined Chinese Kempo, Imua Kuntao and Filipino Escrima concepts to formulate his own combative brand of armed and unarmed self-defense. He Chairs the United States Kemscrima-doh Association/International Kemscrima-doh Federation. He has been involved in the martial arts, in a formal capacity, since 1956.

Sifu was born in America, in Isleton, CA where he learned escrima. Even at an early age, Sifu was already exposed to the aftermath of knifings and shootings that were a common occurrence in Isleton. His earliest recollection of escrima runs back to preschool days, watching his Uncle Damian Canalita and the many friends that came to his parents house to celebrate the close of a season of working the fields, usually in December. After working hard all summer, it was time to relax. Traditionally the women cooked and prepared the feast while the men where hard at playing escrima. They would start off with familiar drills, and the usual exchange of ideas. Bolder players would work up to exchanging blow for blow. On occasion, serious grudge or rival matches would take place, at times, against players from another party down the street looking for a formidable match to test or sharpen their skills. All in all, things would end well, they would sit down to eat, and the war stories would start pouring out. In the Filipino culture, the best escrimadore is, he, who has the best stories to tell.

Sifus mother, Paula Canonigo Abrescy, her brother Philimon and cousin Damian, were the only three members of the family to receive escrima instructions from Sifus great-grandfather, while growing up in the Philippines. It was Damian who passed the mantle of the familys traditional art and concepts of flowing to Sifu.

Sifus kempo roots trace all the way back to the early 1940s when Hawaii born, Rev. James M. Mitosi, 21st descendant of the founder of Kosho-Shorei Kempo, taught his style of kempo to local citizens. Amongst his students was Adriano D. Emperado, who would later go on to create the infamous Kajukembo Self-Defense System, a style ingrained in Kemscrima-doh.

Note: the word kempo (sometimes spelt kenpo) is the Japanese pronunciation for the Chinese ideograph or Chaun-fa.

Over the years Sifu slowly organized the system that would slowly involve into Kemscrima-doh. Today, Sifu and his family own the name Kemscrima-doh and all unconditional rights and privileged information surrounding the Art. As such, he oversees and maintains all the recognized bodies and events permitted to use the name. He believes his obligation to be a matter of family pride, rather than bottom-line profitability. He will go to great lengths to ensure that associates operating under the banner represent only quality programs that go beyond implied standards.
