- Communiversity 2009 -

April 25th was a beautiful and clear day. It was a great day for Communiversity in Princeton and despite the heat, the instructors and students of the Princeton Academy of Martial Arts put on a high energy demonstration for a large crowd. The instructors opened the demo with a mix of Kali double stick and bo staff drills, Muay Thai, and Jun Fan kickboxing drills. PAMA's Little Dragons, the kids, followed up with a demonstration of Sil Lim Tao and a variety of Kali, Jun Fan kickboxing, and trapping. The teenage students got to showcase their skills as well. Then Aubrey Mulford and Newell Woodworth showed how effective the kid's program at PAMA is by successfully defending themselves against an attacker twice their size. The attacker must have regretted picking on them.

Then it was time for the PAMA instructors to give the crowd an overview of the adult program. They began by showing some of the different areas of Kali including double stick, single stick, stick and dagger, and long weapons. Sandy Lee and Mary Jo Colli gave the crowd a taste of some Women's Self Defense techniques while giving their attackers a taste of the pavement and a barrage of kicks, hits, and stomps. Then the instructors showed various trapping drills from Jun Fan such as chi sao as well as several variations of hubud lubud from Kali.

Mike Lee went empty hands against several attackers; some with knives, some with sticks. He disarmed and subdued all of them and finished by taking one opponent's stick and choking him out with it. Mike Wolhfert also took on multiple opponents. He used some Silat techniques to take them to the ground and make sure they didn't get back up. Then the crowd was treated to a Mixed Martial Arts match between Poneyboy Miller and Kurt Komoda. Even after receiving a flying elbow to the head Kurt was able to keep his composure, escape from Poneyboy's knee bar and choke him out from the back. A stick fighting match between Mike Lee and Mike Wolhfert followed. From long range to short range the sticks and kicks were flying for an intense round under the hot sun. The demo was a success. Thanks to all who participated and thanks to the crowd for their support.


The end...

Dietary Supplement

- Del-Immune V by Pure Research Products-

Del-Immune V by Pure Research Products
Del-Immune V
by Pure Research Products

Our intestinal tract is home to 70% of the immune system. Lactic acid bacteria (lactobacillus) present in the intestine plays an active and important role in the regulation, development, and processing of our immune system.

Lactic acid bacteria within our intestine are digested to produce cell wall fragments that initiate the process for stimulating the body's natural immune response. The reason for this response is due to proteins and other biological substances that are contained within the cell walls (see electron microsopic views of actual cell wall fragments). The immune system does not respond to the presence of whole lactic acid bacteria until digestion occurs and cell wall fragments are produced. This is the process for the natural immune response.

Each capsule of Del-Immune V® contains 2+billion cell wall fragments of lactobacillus rhamnosus (found naturally in the intestine) to immediately and naturally launch the work of the immune system.... natures way!
