We are proud to announce the official launching of our new initiative:
SECRETS OF APULIAN MARTIAL ARTS - The Documentary
this is the first episode of a new series, called "The Journey of the Sun": exploring living martial arts and traditions across the Italian peninsula.
The first film is dedicated to Apulia - Puglia. Featuring the real protagonists of these Arts: the Maestri (and their families and circles) who inherited by direct lineage these ancient legacies.
The official website is now online! Please join us in sharing it and promoting it diffusely. We will keep you updated with the progress of the initiative.
We are also thrilled to announce that we will premiere the official trailer next week, in Racine, Chicago, at the Western Martial Arts Workshop - WMAW. If you don't know WMAW, it is the majestic international event dedicated to western martial arts, now at the 12th edition, organized by our good friend Master Greg Mele and the rest of the Chicago Swordplay Guild team.If you happen be to around Chicago, don't miss it and join us at WMAW!
The trailer will then be released on October first 2015.
I want to thank the Masters, their families and students for all their wonderful contribution and passion in working on this project. And more importantly, kudos for representing, defending and transmitting centuries old Italian cultures and traditions of Mars (and Mercury..).
