    Teaching a seminar tomorrow: Any ideas?

    So I'm teaching a seminar tomorrow. It's for a fundraiser and I truthfully only have 2 hours to teach. If you had two hours to learn something (realize I've got a pretty broad range of stuff I can teach - all modesty aside) what would you like to learn? Please be at least semi serious.

    first reaction to reading your post? fusing different ranges of fighting together, like different setups for standup to clinch to takedown.

    Who's your audience, and what is the relative skill level and background going to be?

    SAMBO. It's interesting to me, and I don't know of one person in my area that even knows wtf it is.

    It's going to be at a Hapkido studio (Progressive, the guys fight hard). It's for a 24 hour martial art camp and they're bringing everybody in. I did one last year on armbars. I have no idea who's going to show up.

    Who is it specifically targeted at? For example if it were mostly women I'd say go a little into the psychological role in self-defense (awareness, being assertive in fending off an unwelcome approach, controlling fear etc).

    EDIT: Just saw your response so why not do some standard grappling, clinch work and maybe some take downs? The one you did previously how did that go?

    Assorted martial artists. I think it's guys of all levels.

    Not wearing glasses so I I'm having a hard time reading:

    The armbar seminar originally was not met with too much excitement until I was done. Then I think everybody's ideas changed about it.

    If it were me in that clinic and knowing you (or e-knowing you) I would like to pick your brains on things here and there that you do on kickboxing. Like your turn-down defense to kick catches, head slips while kicking, etc, the little stuff that you do differently.

    Might not work with your crowd though, unless they have a basic understanding of gloved fighting
