Master Wright taught grappling techniques he teaches to his cage fighting students. Both visiting instructors are members of The United Martal Arts Association based in Bloomington, Illinois. Sensei Treem taught, during the seminar, some techniques from Ko Tai Shin Ryu, the system he has formulated and introduced it on this day.
