- Happy Birthday Sifu Rick and Si Suk Bernie -

by Mike Wolhfert

In November, PAMA celebrated the birthdays of Sifu Rick and Si Suk Bernie. The instructors and staff took them out to BT Bistro. Good conversations, discussions and jokes were shared by everyone in attendance. We were also treated to some artistic expression by a local jazz band performing. Sifu Rick and Si Suk Bernie were presented with their birthday gifts which they both loved. A great time was had by all the PAMA family at the celebration.




It's a Celebration!

It was November and Sifu Rick Tucci made a return appearance to Malmo, Sweden to conduct a two-day seminar at the MMA-Alliance. The seminar covered knife tactics, Jeet Kune Do, Kali and Silat. It was a non-stop stream of both techniques and philosophy. The attendants were a mixture of people whose experiences span from beginner to several years of training.

Day 2 covered many Silat ground techniques.

As a testimony to Sifu Rick's teaching skills it didn't matter what experience you had. You still got so much information and great drills out from the seminar. The talks about the hows and whys along with some history thrown in were just as inspiring as the actual techniques. Instructors Mike Lee and Mary Jo were also a great help in explaining and showing the correct way to do all the information Sifu Rick shared. The positive feedback and comments have been great to hear. Probably the most positive of all attendants was Ilaria Tucci, a constant little bundle of joy and happiness. In the 20+ years Sifu Rick has visited Sweden, the growth of his skills and knowledge and his abilities to share them with us continually amazes me. Thank you Sifu Rick for the wonderful seminar.

- Peruvian Shamanic Healing Insights -

by Mike Lee

In October, PAMA had the privilege of hosting several well known energy medicine men and women from Peru. Included were "The Twins" - Doña Isabel Chinguel and Doña Olinda Pintado, Don Martin Pinedo Acuña, and Marco Antonio Nuñez Zamalloa. Attendees interested in these healing arts came from all parts of New Jersey to listen to each of the Shaman healers tell how they got into the arts and explain their own unique methods of healing and medicines. The attendees were also treated to demonstrations of each Shaman's healing technique, which was expertly narrated by Don Marco. This was truly an amazing experience. Special thanks to Sifu Rick for arranging for these special guests to come to PAMA.

The audience listens intently as the Shaman healers present their medicines.

Dietary Supplement

Similase
by Integrative Therapeutics

The digestive system requires a variety of enzymes to break down food into simple components that can be used by the body. Supplemental digestive enzymes can help unlock nutrition from food.

Similase® is a combination of plant enzymes to support complete digestion of all types of nutrients, such as carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. The blend of enzymes is unique because it is active across a broad pH range in the digestive tract.

Sifu Recommends a Book

- Bruce Lee: Artist of Life -

Bruce Lee: Artist of Life
Bruce Lee: Artist of Life
by John Little
Bruce Lee was an intense man with such sheer concentration of energy that no one who encountered him, on screen or in person, could help but be drawn to him and his enthusiasm for life and knowledge. A voracious and engaged reader, Lee wrote extensively, synthesizing the thought of East and West into a unique personal philosophy of self-discovery. Bruce Lee, Artist of Life explores the development and fruition of Bruce Lee's thought about gung fu, philosophy, psychology, poetry, jeet kune do, acting, and self-knowledge. This volume from Bruce Lee's private notebooks is capped by a selection of Lee's letters that eloquently demonstrate how he incorporated his thought into his actions and advice to others. Also included are multiple drafts of select compositions, showing how Lee's thought evolved and was refined over the years and how the ideas he was reading and writing about were reflected in his work and everyday life.
