Joe Lewis Conference

by George Mattson

Attention all Uechi-ryu students and instructors. . .

This is a program you don’t want to miss. . .





Dear JLFS Black Belts and Fellow Martial Artists,

You are cordially invited to attend my 11th Annual Joe Lewis Research Conference. This one-of-a-kind event takes place October 7-10, 2010 in Tampa, Florida. It will be hosted by Mike Allen and Eddie Dominguez at the Hilton Airport Westshore Hotel in Tampa, Florida.

The event is fewer than 80 days away so start making your reservations now in order to get the best travel rates.

Imagine taking part in the world’s only and most challenging research conference that offers personable, accessible, beneficial, and unique training—and yet— personally mentored by the first martial artist to open up a kickboxing school in North America (Dr. Maung Gyi), the Legendary Father of American Kickboxing (Joe Lewis), and also the first World Champion to establish kickboxing on National television (Bill “Superfoot” Wallace).

In addition to these three legends’ seminars, we have a distinguished line-up of guest instructors who will be sharing with you their knowledge and experience. Each seminar has a unique theme and every instructor is either a JLFS certified Black Belt as well as having certification in numerous other systems, or has widespread recognized credentials as being the top cutting-edge instructor in his field. We also have 3 Grandmasters of their own system teaching at the camp. We only pick the top cutting-edge instructor candidates to ensure that you not only have knowledge access from them, but also that you will acquire and fully gain the best possible experience.

True Breadth of Knowledge—“Second to None”

Whether you are a world champion fighter, a successful school owner, or a newcomer, each year we turn it up another notch by consistently raising the bar, offering a blend of both old school and modern day martial arts training skills. The following is a list of our featured instructors and their respected disciplines. Private lessons are available besides our regular scheduled classes. Thursday, Oct 7th, is our beginning day set aside for greetings, sparring, and those being tested for black belt rank.

The instructors for this year’s conference include:

2010 Conference Theme:

“Putting the Life Back into Your Training”

“It’s not the amount of training you’ve done in your life,

It’s the amount of life you’ve put into your training.”


Attention: Auditioning Brave Martial Artists Only

Martial artists used to train hard, sometimes for hours every day. Honor and respect traveled both up and down the chain of command. There was no “King of the Hill” or school bully.

A place in time where the most appropriate environment for learning was a level playing field—where the weakest white belts were allowed, and felt accepted and supported. You were never made to feel inadequate or less than those who were stronger—and yet, you felt at home training side by side with world champions. The doors to the workout floor were always open whether you were in top shape or struggling to get back into it.

You did not have to wonder whether or not if what you were being taught was the best cutting-edge methods to ever exist. And when you trained, you felt that indomitable fighting spirit that permeated the entire classroom.

Do you ever miss leaving the classroom with this same, familiar surge of passion anticipating the next class, because in your gut there was that freshly released energy that even words could not describe? Wasn’t it great in those days when valorous camaraderie was always the order of the day?

You think martial arts only used to be that way—-IT STILL IS!

I extend to you the challenge of a lifetime to come and train with those who represent an association that speaks to the dignity of that which is still the soul of a true martial artist.

Looking forward to greeting you,

Joe Lewis
