A successful event ended, trainers unending feedback

Throughout the all day event, all the trainers were able to experience the actual training of both the body and mind. After the event, many of the trainers indicated that the event was packed full and was worth every minute, and also learned a bit more about themselves after having gone through the training. Many also hoped that they had a chance to experience the course again or have a chance to participate in MFT’s training in the future.
After the event, Hank Han, the founder of MFT Martial Fitness Training shared his thoughts on this event: “Three years ago my first trip to Taiwan left a deep impression on me and I hoped for the opportunity to let my team experience it. Even though the opportunity never came, the idea of an “MFT Taiwan Mastercraft Journey” was always in my mind. It wasn’t until I met with Artificer’s Leon at the Nike Super Workshop last year that I finally realized that fate had finally given me the opportunity! Two months ago, I decided to bring my core team to Taiwan. With the help of Leon and Artificer, they showed us various examples of the ingenuity and master craft attitudes locally here in Taiwan. At the same time, I hoped to be able to share key portions of MFT’s ideology with the friends and trainers of Taiwan and be able to share in an open exchange event with them. On July 8th, we along with Artificer and friends, we presented an excellent MFT Martial Fitness Training Experience. The Taiwan trainer’s enthusiasm, focus and passion left an unforgettable impression on us. All this….is very rare and precious…
MFT Taiwan Mastercraft Journey this time confirmed even more strongly: In this lifetime, some people are destined to walk together!”
Regarding this event, Artificer’s CEO Leon Wei said: “Artificer is very honored to have the opportunity to invite China’s premier MFT Martial Fitness Training team to hold their first ever demo event in Taiwan. Not only was the 「martial」aspects rich and solid, but more focus was placed on the 「heart」training of the attendees and encouraged fitness trainers and industry professionals to not just focus on teaching but also need to continue to improve oneself. MFT’s unique attention to details in regard to intention and philosophy implemented in their course also benefited our company. It is the expectation that the fitness trainers from both the cross strait regions can apply for MFT’s professional training and MFT’s Thailand Training Camps through Artificer Academy’s offerings in the future to experience the fitness charm offered by the MFT!”
