This is a new subject for me. I have a background in Tae Kwon Do, and about three years ago I started taking kickboxing classes at an MMA gym that had just opened in my town, called Elite Combative Systems. It recently occurred to me that I should capture my coaches and fellow students in action.
This is the first in my "Fight Camp" series. I wanted to show the day to day practice sessions at the gym. Much like oil painting, martial arts requires discipline, regular practice, and one should enjoy the process as much as reaching incremental goals. It is the process that I want to capture in this series! Oil on 30"h x 24"w x 1 1/2" d stretched linen.
