CRAIG: Welcome every person yet again to one more superb edition of Diamond’s Corner. These days we have I mean, ABQ Albuquerque street fighter, eleventh diploma black belt, an Ameri-do-te, Master Ken joining us. Say hello there Grasp.
Grasp KEN: Hi there Grasp
CRAIG: Properly, so, how are you preserving by yourself occupied in these crazy quarantine occasions?
Grasp KEN: Effectively uh, I have finished a selection of factors, by the way, satisfied Earth Day.
CRAIG:Satisfied Earth Day to you much too sir. You have some pleasant, an Earthy moustache I see.
Grasp KEN:Yeah, thank you. I have acquired some dust in it. I was outside the house, um, I required a greater check out of the horizon now, uh to celebrate Earth Day so that I could see the Earth, so I was out back again of the dojo and I minimize again about fifty percent a dozen trees and I can see the earth so much much better now.
CRAIG: Perfectly, it can be about the view of Earth Working day, and you have to do what you have to do.
Grasp KEN: I’m hoping to take pleasure in it.
CRAIG: Learn Ken, you’ve motivated so a lot of, you’ve motivated so several, um, wander us by way of the relaxation of your day currently, what are you going to be carrying out these days?
Learn KEN:Very well I am heading to be functioning on uh, I’m usually functioning on new techniques, uh, I am heading to be undertaking some video clips. I have some particular request films. I do movies on an application known as Cameo, where people today can check with for uh, they can mail a request for a particular movie about a distinct concern. I am functioning on a video about an art that bargains with bayonet combating. Um, I essentially produced this uh, bayonet in this article. Um, so I built a bayonet weapon here.
CRAIG:I like that.
Grasp KEN: Yeah. But what I see that a good deal of these guys don’t do appropriately is they do not put the blade curving up in the way of the barrel, which you want to do. Simply because then just about every bullet becomes two bullets. For the reason that it flies out and it will get lower in 50 percent suitable about listed here. So you can shoot two bullets out of 1 bullet.
CRAIG: I listened to a tale that you were being uh, prototyping with that bayonet there, and you shot a man ideal concerning the eyes, apart from you acquired both eyes with that new innovation.
Learn KEN: Particularly. Now you never… you employed to have to shoot them in between the eyes unless of course you had two guns, but now you can just shoot them in the eyes.
CRAIG: You are so sensible, you happen to be so creative when it will come to, you know, weaponry strategy, you know, near hand fighting, beat and combating. You have performed a hundred ways to assault the groin you’ve got accomplished a hundred and one approaches to attack the groin.
Grasp KEN:So genuinely which is two hundred and one techniques if you consider about it.
CRAIG: Hm… that’s two hundred and one techniques to attack the groin. I signify, you’ve got completed so a lot in your job. Sometimes do you believe possibly you have accomplished it all? In Martial Arts? All that there needs way too be finished totally? Far more than any individual? A lot more than Bruce Lee? A lot more than John Jones? Additional than Mr. Miyagi? Has grasp, justification me, Master Ken completed it all?
Learn KEN: Effectively I have completed much more than all of all those people today uh, but for different explanations. Uh, I’ve accomplished a lot more than Bruce Lee because I’ve lived more time. Uh, I’ve carried out more perform for uh, I have accomplished much more than John Jones due to the fact I haven’t been arrested, um, practically as usually. Um, I’ve performed a lot more than, who else did you point out?
CRAIG:Ah very well of class, Mr. Miyagi, a person of the greats.
Grasp KEN:Oh Mr. Miyagi, yeah. I have accomplished extra than him because I do my very own stunts. Because he was just an actor that had a different martial artist come in and do his stuff while when you see me carrying out it, it can be all the true deal. So I just have a uh, I am uh, prolific. Uh, which is related to currently being a diabetic, apart from that my health issues is that I have way too significantly knowledge. I have additional understanding than I can at any time connect to persons. So truly I have to create new techniques each single working day or I’ll pretty much explode.
CRAIG:Enable me talk to you. You know there is a rumor going around that Dana White was conversing to you about working with… I should not say this, since I do not know if it’s general public, Combat Island is actually your island. One particular of your several islands. Is what the rumor is. And that you are potentially creating this take place.
Learn KEN:Yeah, for legal good reasons I can not always validate it- all I am expressing is that uh, when you’re out on an island you’re not normally technically section of a country. As a result you are ordinarily outdoors of their regulations and principles. So that may well be the appeal of combating on an island. Uh, for occasion, anybody who’s lived on an island understands that there are also no speed restrictions. Uh, because it really is unenforceable. You cannot get a dashing ticket if you are driving on an island.
CRAIG: Do you, dashing and pace. I mean, some of your techniques and punches and kicks have been clocked, you know, in history figures. Is that why you desire to train on the Battle Island at occasions, so that there’s no policies and no person can form of control your speed, and depth, and electrical power?
Grasp KEN:Yeah, nobody can give me a ticket for punching to quickly.
CRAIG:Thank you, that is what I was striving to say.
Learn KEN:So also, you know, that is a huge way of how I have produced Ameri-do-te, is that all of the techniques need to seriously be as rapid as doable. You you should not want fights to go on as extensive, even as they do in the UFC, which is a big difficulty with me. 3, 5 minute rounds, I signify, who needs to struggle with fifteen minutes. So uh, that is why when I prepare my college students, I convey to them, no cardio. No cardio whatsoever. Cardio is bad, really don’t target on cardio. I will not want my pupils to stand listed here and punch bob, you know, for thirty minutes.
CRAIG:Mhm, of course.
Learn KEN:I want them to consider all their punches and just [punches dummy] and which is the whole fight.
CRAIG:Quickness, finish him, performance. I like that.
Master KEN:Most points in life must be carried out hard and quickly and should be around as shortly as doable.
CRAIG: Of course. Uh, Master Ken, I do not want to just take up any more of your time since, I know you might be a fast paced man. We can locate you on Cameo, we can locate you uh, exactly where can the men and women obtain the Learn?
Learn KEN:Yeah, you can purchase, if you want a customized video clip message, want me to inform you why your martial artwork is no good, or uh, or slap your Sensei close to or whatsoever you can just go to cameo- just Google Master Ken Cameo, or uh, search at me on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram. I am not challenging to discover because I am the only, the only 1 of me out there.
CRAIG:Master Ken, if there is certainly any suggestions, you know, and parting words and phrases that you could give our audience, uh, you know, to continue to be favourable, to remain balanced, to keep difficult during this time, now is the time. Go on and give us a phrase of knowledge.
Master KEN:Positive, um, I would uh, make certain to stay, not just stay isolated within your domicile, but usually be doing the job on being isolated within just your home, secured. Ok? Do not turn your back on anyone. Like I have my again turned on Bob suitable now for the reason that I know that he is inanimate. All right. But you really should be coming into each individual area defending your back again. So just, I only want to see from now on, men and women shifting like this. [Moves with back against the wall]. Each and every room you happen to be in, just maintain your again to the wall. You are going to often be shielded.
CRAIG:Grasp Ken, I adore it, back to the wall and stay protected. Most people glance up Learn Ken, thank you for coming on, see he’s heading. And we’re heading to have you once again shortly, you’ve got been a huge aid to our brand name, and we like the 1 and only Grasp Ken. We will chat to you quickly fellas. Many thanks Master.
