Farnam "Farre" Mirzai seminar at Novamma notes

Farnam "Farre" Mirzai (Sweden) Based in Thailand from 2005-2010, did a seminar, his lessons are very clear and practical giving a new sense of basics. Many of the things I had learned in Thailand, however it is critical lesson on basics and could always use a refresher and reintegration in training.

Video of his famous spinning backfist:
