Tropiques FM: Interview Bruno Bandelier (live)

The 27 March 2016, just on Easter Day, José Douglas called me live from his show "The Champions" on Tropics FM. At 12h30, when everyone went for an aperitif for Easter lunch or went on an egg hunt, my phone rang and a voice said, " You are on Tropiques FM, do not quit". A few 30 seconds later, I was live with Jose Douglas to talk about the karate3G ™ method.

What Mr. Douglas had not told me was that his trainee Remy Colbert, his martial arts specialist (he's a Judo teacher), was trying to trick me into pretending that the training Karate via the internet could not be effective. I was a little surprised, but finally, I did not let myself be destabilized and I knew how to defend Karate-Blog.net ™ and karate3G ™ by explaining that the ideal was of course to alternate the training sessions. club with personal workouts at home.

Here is the full transcript of the interview (You can also listen to the interview by clicking on the podcast above):

Jose Douglas (Tropics FM):

We have Bruno Bandelier who is online with us. Bruno, hello.

Bruno :

Hello

Jose Douglas (Tropics FM):

Bruno Bandelier, you sent us a press release telling us about your karate3G ™ method. What is it exactly ? That is to say that I am at home and I can do karate thanks to you?

Bruno :

Yes quite. I developed a website with Karate courses online, where I offer courses. People can train from home. The ideal is to alternate the lessons at the dojo with Karate lessons at home. But hey, the one who can not go to the dojo, or who does not have a dojo, he has the opportunity to train from home, in front of the camera (in fact it is rather in front of his screen). I do the lessons as I do dojo with my students, so we really believe in the dojo when we are in front of the screen.

Jose Douglas (Tropics FM):

So what you did not know, I did not warn you, I have Remy Colbert who is a martial arts specialist with me in the studio.

Rémy Colbert, is it viable, this practice?

Rémy Colbert (Tropics FM):

Well listen, I think everyone tries to do as he can, but me in my own way, I do not think it's really effective. I do not know ... I do not know, what is it? To make Kata? to make Kumite? What's this ?

Bruno :

Yes, then, automatically Kumite can not do so much

Rémy Colbert (Tropics FM):

Ah ben voila!

Bruno (which does not disassemble):

But when you take Karate, there is about 70 at 80% of training in Karate which is done alone.
In fact, I assumed that when they come out of a Karate class, when they come back the next week, they have forgotten most of what they have learned because the brain forgets it very quickly . By doing workouts at home, it allows to go up every time the information in memory and progress much faster. In fact when they come back to class, and I see it with my students, those who train more at home compared to the club, they progress 3 times faster than those who come to the club.

So, that's what I told you, the ideal is to do both. But not everyone can do both. There are some who can only go to the club and we see, the people who come to the club 1 or 2 times a week, in the end after 2 or 3 they stop because they do not have not progressed sufficiently. They are orange belt after two years ... They do not progress fast enough.

Jose Douglas (Tropics FM):

So Bruno Bandelier, in short, how is it going? We are at home, I am at home, I go to your site and I receive classes and I practice karate at home, quietly?

Bruno :

There you have it. There are several options: Either you do alternating with the courses at the dojo. So based on what you learned at the dojo, you revise at home. I have courses in very specific techniques, so if you've learned how to kick, you watch the video and you do the course I give on video ... Same for a kata ... Or, you can do according to what you feel like doing even if it does not match what is in the dojo.

And if not I also have a coaching option where I give every day the exercises to do. I do karate at the same time, but I also put weight training exercises, meditation exercises, ... so that karate is really complete, it's really a martial art and not just technique.

Jose Douglas (Tropics FM):

Ok, and what is the site?

Bruno :

It is karate3G ™ .com and if not, I also have another site Karate-Blog.net ™ where you have a lot of free online courses. karate3G ™ is no longer a paid platform where I sell full training programs, but on Karate-Blog.net, we already find a lot of free courses and it already allows to get a good idea.

Jose Douglas (Tropics FM):

Here, in any case if it develops you will of course think of Tropiques FM.

Rémy Colbert will go out of curiosity because I do not hide you that he is a teacher of Judo and it is the specialist of the martial arts at home. He will not hesitate to go for a ride on the site. Is not it Rémy?

Rémy Colbert (Tropics FM):

Yes, absolutely, we have to see that because there are many videos that exist so it can be interesting.

Jose Douglas (Tropics FM):

Well, thank you Bruno and good luck.

Bruno :

Thank you. I greet all your listeners and thank you.

Jose Douglas (Tropics FM):

Okay. Thank you Bruno, site specialist Karate3g, Bruno Bandelier.

FM Tropics LogoSo, I thank José Douglas for giving me this interview and Rémy Colbert, their martial arts specialist, for this exchange of views, and I welcome of course all the listeners of Tropics FM.

See you soon,
Bruno

  1. Even if being West Indian and knowing very well both radio Tropiques FM and journalists José DOUGLAS and Rémy COLBERT I think my position is to be taken into consideration. I was interested in Bruno Bandelier's Karate3G and I think it's a very good initiative as well as an original method that will allow the development of the discipline as well as the improvement of the feedbacks of the learners. Even if the absence of physical partners is felt there, we always learn and we progress necessarily. Of course, less quickly but irremediably. Coming from football 13 17 years and then English 18 years I started the 18 karate 19 ans reading only the books of Haberzedzer for Shotokan techniques including Karate for black belts and Kasé for the katas before joining a club at 19 ans.I learned a lot and I knew the 5 Heian and my favorite Hangetsu from the white belt Today Black Belt 6 eme dan I do not regret this learning although particular and solitary. Even though I became a fist specialist and I do not do katas too often! Today with video and telephone exchanges or internet everything is easier. The Bandelier method is therefore necessarily profitable and useful if it does not remain however exclusive!
