Medical Weight Loss Program Query [13 Dec 2008|02:08pm]

roundrockronin
Does anyone have any medical weight loss program recommendations? Non-surgical is preferred? Something the is medically supervised and includes counseling would be ideal. Also, something covered by insurance would be great. Thanks in advance.

Bushido Festival Event Planning Query/Survey [15 Aug 2008|11:43am]

roundrockronin
Hello,

My name is John Hidalgo and I am in the preliminary stages of planning a new event which will focus on Japanese martial arts and culture. I am writing various people (martial arts schools, martial artists, Japanese culture related businesses and organizations, etc; mostly in the Austin area) who might either be interested in participating or who might be able to provide input that will help shape the event. Below is an overview of the event and questions related to the various aspects of the event. If you would be willing to provide any input it would be greatly appreciated. If you would like to be removed from any further communications about this event, please let me know and I will do so. Thank you so much for your time and consideration.

Respectfully,
John Hidalgo

Overview
The event will effectively be a Bushido festival. Though, the focus will be primarily Japanese martial arts, it will also encompass Japanese visual and performing arts, religion and culture.

Charitable Cause
One of the things that is being considered is to have the event benefit a charity. If that direction is taken the first choice would be the Tsubaki Grand Shrine of America (www.tsubakishrine.com). The Tsubaki Shrine is the only full time active Shinto shrine in North America. If that is not workable we would be open ot other chartiable causes.

Timeframe
Spring 2010

Venue
Currently under consideration is the Austin Convention Convention Center and the AT&T Conference Center. In the future, other venues may also be considered.

Format
This will be a convention type event and may include demonstrations, classes, movie screenings, and vendor area.

Questions
1) From an event that bills itself as a Bushido festival, what sort of things would you expect to see and do?

2) If there was a vendor area, what sort of vendors would you want to see?

3) If there was a movie screening area, what movies do you think would be appropriate? What movies would you like to see?

4) What demonstrations or classes (martial arts or otherwise) would you like to see? How long do you think these demonstrations and classes should be? Is there anyone in particular you would want to see giving those presentations?

5) For an event that includes demonstrations, classes, a movie area and a vendors area, what would you be be willing to pay.

6) If you were to be a vendor, what would you be willing to pay for a 10' x 10' space?

7) If you were to place an ad in the event program or have banner advertizing at the event, what would you be willing to spend on these things?

8) If you were to provide a class or demonstration at the event, what, if anything, would you expect in return?

9) would you be interested in participating in such an event and, if so, in what capacity?

10) Do you have any other ideas, questions or concerns about this event?

Hey all, I just joined this group and noticed that there's not much activity for the last year or so other than Roundrockronin's posts (you go, ninja!).

Did everyone go somewhere else, or has it just faded?

Beginning September 10th, Action Hero Institute is beginning another Level 1 Stunt Class.  Information can be found HERE on the class.  Tuition is $140 for a six (or four) week program, and it covers everything you need for a good old fashioned bar-room brawl.  Included is some footage for your demo reel, if you do that sort of thing.

Also available on an ongoing basis is a Mixed Martial Arts class that incorporates Kenpo, Kendo, TKD and Aikido.  It's designed to be practically useful (for both self defense and competitive fighting) and FUN.  ($40 per month, $20 if you're also taking the stunt class)

They also offer the Warrior Workout, which is more or less advanced Cross Fit training without the label and price tag.  It's especially awesome for athletes in training, but people looking to get into real shape also benefit an awful lot.  ($40 per month, $20 if you're also taking the stunt class)  The training is honestly one of the hardest workouts I've ever done, and it's one of those things that really separates the men from the boys and the girls from the women.

It's a private gym, so everyone usually gets to know each other pretty well and supports each other.  There are a bunch of pictures, mostly of the Warrior Workout, in the gallery if you're interested in seeing the sort of thing that goes on.
