FunFriday! Meet Ollie

#FunFriday is all about light, fun and entertaining martial arts from around the world.  Today we’re pleased to introduce a martial arts fan we met at a wing-chun event earlier this year, Ollie Montague.  Thanks for the video Ollie, keep it up!

 

“I started learning wing chun a year ago with Sifu Greg Holloway in Brixton/Clapham [London]. I had just moved to London and thought I would try something new. I’ve really enjoyed it and wanted to keep up my training whilst travelling for a month around Europe. On my first day (in Karin, Croatia) I tried videoing myself to playback and watch to improve my technique. It struck me that the setting of the video actually made it quite cool despite my dodgy technique – and that spawned the idea to video myself doing Su-Nim-Tao everywhere I went and then edit it together into a video. This video is the first clip in my compilation.

Along the way I attracted a lot of attention, because I would literally put my camera down in tourist areas and start doing Su-Nim-Tao in complete focus. Instead of people just thinking I was weird and moving on, quite a few people wanted to know more about it and when I offered to include them in my video they were surprisingly up for it!”

 

Raj, a wing chun student, enjoys spending time studying various aspects of the martial arts, from theory to practically applied skills. He enjoys interviewing prominent and dedicated martial artists from all over the world, who have something inspiring and stimulating to share. He also manages projects in terms of filming, reviews of movies/books and other quality features.
