Jim Brassard Awarded
"
Outstanding Contribution to The Martial Arts As A Grand Master 2010"


Awarded "Outstanding Soke Of The Year" by the U.S.A Martial Arts Hall Of Fame in 2013 in NJ.

“Gm Brassard, I love your moves and the execution and effectiveness. Your hand speed is amazing. It's also amazing how few of today’s martial artists use the open hands and the traditional blocks and rapid fire strikes to vital and vulnerable areas of the head, neck and body.

 

So many fighters don’t want to spend the time nor want to pay the dues to LEARN these valuable TOOLS correctly from a MASTER such as you.

I am more than impressed, and with your permission BORROW some of your drills…

 

Great technique, fast, effective and professional! I endorse them!!!!

I recommend everyone even Masters to take a look and incorporate these hand drills and your teachings into their system.

 

Fast, Effective and Easy to Learn

Master Danny Lane
