“I highly recommend the teachers at this event. Get out there. Always spar with people that don't do what you do. I do as much as I can. Martial arts are never mastered in a bubble.”
“Stickmata was an unprecedented gathering of skill, mastery and learning that we can attribute to the efforts of Mahipal Lunia along with his team, in his quest to bring to the forefront solid martial arts masters and instructors.”
“… Once the instructors were done teaching their modules, they took off their ambassador hats and got out on the floor with the rest of the students to take part in the labs as students themselves.”
“A lot of dry sponges out there. A joy as a teacher to teach that kind of people.”
“Such a good idea… Take one subject, and get many different ideas and approaches.”
“I was amongst warriors… respectful warriors.”
“Whoever didn’t show up, missed something special.”
“The instructors are receptive. The students are receptive. Made me feel at home.”
Bob Stines Jr.
“There is a spirit of openness and sharing.”
“It’s rare to get things from around the world all in one place.”
“What’s unique, to me, is the time factor. Instructors are able to devote a good half day to work their material.”
“We want to experiment, push boundaries and raise the bar. For that we have to get to the source. This is the place for that. Everybody is a student here.”
Never experienced this before… Highly recommend that people find this place.
“This one-of-a-kind experiment was an eye-opening experience which, if properly absorbed, is more impactful than decades of training under one system.”
