He is the main organizer of the Champion Spirit Masters Martial Arts Conference.
This event will take place August 17 and 18 at his academy, the Tayari Casel Martial Arts Academy, in Silver Spring, Maryland.
Open to all styles of martial arts and people of all ages and all levels of experience, the Champion Spirit Masters Martial Arts Conference will be offering classes in martial arts that include: Kupigana Ngumi, Kung Fu, Ninjutsu, Sanuces Ryu, Capoeira, Escrima, Tai Chi, as well as Yoga, Drumming and Dance. The theme of the event is: "Healing, History, Traditions, Principles, Courtesy, Respect" and "Honor our Ancestors and Founders". Numerous veteran martial artists will be at this event to share their wisdom and experience.
We spoke with Oso Tayari Casel by phone Wednesday.
"Here in beautiful downtown Silver Spring, Maryland, we are very pleased to host the Champion Spirit Masters Martial Arts Conference and Showcase," he said. He expects it both to be "really exciting" and "going into just so many different aspects of the martial arts."
He added, "I am pleased and very humbled and honored that so many of the Grand Masters are coming here to share their knowledge, their experience, and of course their techniques and wisdom that they've garnered over the years."
We discussed the details of this event, and also how the martial arts, as did human life and civilization, originated in Africa, and the implications of that knowledge. We contrasted the culture in the martial arts to that in professional combat sports, including both boxing and MMA. We discussed the myth of America being a "post-racial society" and how this is reflected in the martial arts and combat sports. We also discussed the planned TV series called "Warrior Island", some of the problems with the governance of martial arts, and much more.
