WHAT IS THE MARTIAL HERO AWARD ?
Summa Maxima Warriors Arts and his partners for more than 13 years has promoted the grown in some Martial Arts as Silat, Kali-Arnis-Eskrima, Jeet Kune Do, Kyusho and Combatives, with some of the best Great Masters in those disciplines. The main idea was to give to everyone the possibility to study with the best to become the best. In this period we have helped everyone that would like to obtain a valid certifications following a serious path of study with a very representative Grand Master of the style and with the support of the Summa Maxima staff (Masters, instructors etc). During the time we have find others persons with the same our values and ideas, so we found it useful to join forces and make pure synergy, without barriers of any kind. Unity in the diversity as by the famous Indonesian motto, the same idea of the Latin words “summa maxima”, best synergy between serious people and arts.
To full dominate an Art sometimes a life is not enough, but between the different Arts there are some connections that make easier to go in the deep or to reach a higher level in a specific Art, if You become confident even with others Arts. We was so happy that also GM Samuel Kwok Italian Organization joined the project, so we had a direct connection with GM Ip Man, Wing Chun source, because GM Samuel Kwok is heir of GM Ip Chun and Ip Ching (GM Ip Man sons).
…. And so started the idea to make a common event with the Grand Masters that supported us during the time and with some friends of us, very high level Masters and Grand Masters.
It is a very special and unique event to celebrate our HEROES, our guides. Mostly of them are no more with us but, their spirit and their Art continue to touch our hearts and our minds, so daily we continue to follow the path that they have traced for us.
October 20 21,2018 in Venice – Cavallino Treporti, more than 35 International and Italian TOP GRAND MASTERS and MASTERS started a special international collaboration to spread the pure Martial Arts in a sincere, collaborative and mutual support way. Honest synergy is the Key, summa maxima synergy between men and women from different nations and Arts, but with the same passion and deep knowledge in Martial Arts and Close Combat Systems . The doors are open to everyone, never mind their Art or Country, that wants to take part with the same spirit of open mind, mutual support, honest desire to express his own Art as a MARTIAL HERO in the modern Society. Hero even because the true Martial Arts require many sacrifices and sweat to reach full awareness of the art, following an ethical code that today may seem antiquated, but which is at the base of the mindset for whom want seriously follow a Martial Art path.
With the occasion we decided to constitute a Council of Great Masters and Masters called MARTIAL HEROES COUNCIL. No one is above the others, we want only to collaborate each other to promote genuine collaboration and right visibility to the people that put so much energy to try to reach their highest level in the study, understanding and practice of their Art. We fixed a common ethical code that have to lead the actions of the people that are in the Council. The code it is based on a natural sense of pace and respect (hormat) and what was called in the ancient time code of honor.
This is the first group of Grand Masters and Masters that formed the MARTIAL HERO COUNCIL: GM Samuel Kwok, GM Bram Brank, Guru Cecep Arief Rhaman, GM Leo T Fong, Sifu Peter Chin, GM Hanshi Herbert E. Forster, Dr Robert Goldman , P.Guru Krishna Godhania, Maha Guru Cliff Stewart, GM Philippe Gouttard, GM Evan Pantazi, Itthipol “Khieo” Akkasricorn, Guru Eric Kruk, M° Tommy Gong, Maha Guru Horacio Rodriguez, GM Gregor Huss, M° Florian Lahner, M° Edessa & Robert Ramos, M° Antonio De Sabato, M°Anderson Da Silva, M° Mick Shore, M° Joaquin Marcelo, M°Vincent Raimondi, M° Sonny Singh, M°Simon Kook, M° Giuseppe Bonaccorsi, M°Giuseppe Vuovolo, M° Marcello Senes, M° Marco Bellani, M° Claudio Alfarano, M° Antonio Di Salvo, M° Emilio Bevilacqua, M° Michael Inzana, M°Andrea Torres, M° Robert Rosemberg, M° Sandro Martinelli, M° Gabriele Guidi, M° Davide Fioretti, M° Nicola Rossi, M° Roberto Modugno, Guru Simone Medici.

October 20 21 2018 we had almost 32 one hour seminars/workshops, sometimes with a cross training between Teachers of different Arts…. A very special occasion to see Martial Arts at his top expression. Martial Hero organizes events with a no profit purpose and if there is a positive balance it will be use to support the activity of the Grand Masters and Masters that take part to the project.
At the Martial Hero, Saturday is organized a Gala Night with the goal to create a better sense of Family in the Martial Hero Tribe. During the Gala ceremony the Grand Masters give to Masters, instructors, coaches, black belts, students and competitors a very significant AWARD of the year for the different categories and Arts. The nomination for the Awards is proposed by the Grand Masters for the Masters and with the same logic for the others levels, but everyone can ask his candidacy for an Award to the Martial Hero Council. The Award in itself will be a beautiful certificate and artistic object from Venice made from for the Martial Hero.
We are sure that MARTIAL HERO AWARD Ceremony and seminars are now a beautiful yearly occasion to stay together, have fun and make something very important and valid for the Martial Arts Community.
