World Champion and Action Star Teaches at USA Martial Arts Phoenix
Arizona children and adults at USA Martial Arts Phoenix will be learning from one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles this week. World Champion Sensei Daniel Spalding is an experienced motion capture stunt pro, action talent for movies and videos as well as a highly respected teacher.
Sensei Spalding acted as stuntman/action choreographer for the video game “Age of Empires 2”, the television pilots for “Action Man” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” (where he played Leonardo, Raphael, and Splinter), as well as starring as a lead character in the 3D video game “The Untouchable 2”.
They will be learning the traditional Okinawan Karate weapon called Tonfa. Some may recognize this weapon from it's modern use in law enforcement where it is referred to as a PR-24.
In addition, Sensei Daniel Spalding will be teaching a special leadership training session for the top students of USA Martial Arts Phoenix. Holding Black Belts in Taekwondo, Karate, and Kenpo in addition to his movie/film work and experience as a freestyle martial arts champion makes Sensei Daniel Spalding relevant for all ages.
