Taking on the world!

I decided to start this blog because of my love of Martial Arts. I am an Eskrimador (Stick Fighter) and one day I will be world Champion. I’ve not written a blog before and so I hope that you find some interest in this.

My name is Patrick but most people just call me Paddy. I live in the Outback in north-west Queensland in a town named Mount Isa and I study Filipino Martial Arts with Sikaran Martial Arts Mount Isa. At my Dojo I train in Sikaran Karate & Eskrima. Prior to moving out here we lived on the coast where I studied traditional Boxing & Muay Thai.

Where I live. 9 hour drive to the coast & 23 hours to Brisbane!

In June 2017 I attended the World Eskrima, Kali, Arnis Federation (WEKAF) Australian National Titles in Townsville where I won a silver medal and ranked #2 in Australia for boys 14 years single-stick. In July 2018 I am heading to Hawaii to compete in the WEKAF World Titles as a member of the Australian Stick Fighting Team.

In total, 6 Eskrimadors from my Dojo were selected for the team and we are all excited about the trip.

This blog is going to be about my love for martial arts and my preparation for the world title tournament. There may be weeks when I post daily and sometimes I may only post once per week. A lot will depend on my workload with school & training. I will post photos and videos of my training along the way.

I hope that you find some interest in my blog and I welcome any comments. I will try to respond to everyone who does comment.
