Topic 1: Blind Tiger - The Art of Self-Defense
Sensei Mike Armstrong
Blind Tiger Martial Arts Academy
At the age of 26, Shihan Mike, who was already a martial arts instructor, lost his eyesight due to a hereditary disease. Before losing his sight, Sensei Mike was warned by his doctors to stop practicing martial arts. But, Sensei Mike’s passion for the martial arts would never let him stop. The discipline and determination that he has formed through his practice of martial arts has helped him not only adjust to the loss of his sight, but also overcome challenges any sighted man would have difficulty with.
