Join us on our conversation with Jeff Hughes from Austin, TX, a very accomplished Martial Artist, Master in Seven Star Praying Mantis Gung Fu, Black Belt in Hawaiian Kempo under John Hackleman, and BJJ Brown Belt under Luigi Mondelli.

Mr. Hughes talked to us about his newest Martial Arts Method called Iron Mantis, a modern style that has its roots in the Traditional Seven Star Mantis combining the striking, takedowns and throws, and groundwork that he has trained and learned over his 40 years experience as a Martial Artist.

We discussed how it is like to be an established master in other styles, still looking for his personal growth learning other styles, keeping a student mindset alive, incorporating these new arts into his own style. 

A lot of great information in this episode blending the super traditional and spiritual side of ancient martial arts, and the most current techniques and training methods found in BJJ and Hawaiian Kempo.
