MalJam sponsor rides martial arts wave

Tim smashes 860 ponds of ice and a world record

 

 

Set for April 30th on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, the Curly Maljam Pro is offering $11,000 in prize money making it probably the richest longboard event in Australia. President of the host club Curl Curl Longboarders, Phil Nicol, reports on the head honcho of the major sponsor 4 Elements Martial Arts Academy – an interesting longboarder indeed.

“Tim Reilly, the owner of the 4 Elements Academy, uses the ancient art of Chi plus longboard technique to impart the basics of kickboxing, Kung Fu and Thai Boxing. A lifetime resident of the Northern Beaches, Tim is a former NSW, Australian and Australasian Full Contact Fight Title holder. He now runs two successful academies at Brookvale in Sydney and Noosa on the Sunshine Coast, and is opening up a new school in Brisbane.

“A lifetime dedicated to training himself and students has alerted Tim to some of the hidden secrets of discipline and preparation of mind, body and soul. By employing his philosophies, Tim achieved two world records for breaking ice with bare hands – he broke 650 pounds of ice in 2004 and 860 pounds in 2006!

“The combination of strict technique, mental preparation and discipline underpin his success as an athlete and now as a successful businessman. Tim is keen to share all his knowledge and experience with his students and spends hours coaching his instructors so as to quality control all aspects of developing their skills.

“Tim has also surfed all his life and explains that there’s a strong connection between the principles of surfing and the martial arts, and that many of the moves and skills have a lot in common. He gives the example of using cross-stepping technique as a foundation move to set up for kicking in the fight discipline. Other examples include the ‘hang 5’ stance as the ‘cat stance’ used in defense, and of paddling as a precursor to the ‘breakaway’ used to block in a fight situation. The push up from the lying position to standing in surfing simulates preparation for the ‘fighting stance’.

“Tim also identifies the role of Chi in both sports as a means of channeling energy and focus, to obtain greater enjoyment and proficiency in both. Chi (or QI as it is also known) is regarded by martial arts exponent as the flow of energy that drives a person’s life force.  He often takes business associates out in the water to illustrate the calming and mind-clearing therapy afforded by surfing and the culture of water. Tim has many students that have benefited from his philosophy and as a result excel at international surfing and fight events.

“Curl Curl Longboarders Inc is extremely fortunate to have a such a man in its ranks as he contributes at all levels – financial, operational, philosophical and as a competitor. The MALJAM is an opportunity for all of you to meet Tim and maybe share some of his views, ideas and approaches to life.”
