Reiyukai America
Reiyukai America Logo

We are happy to once again welcome Reiyukai America to PMX who will be hosting both a panel and a workshop this year. Their panel, "Decoding Japanese Culture", will take a look at the nuances of the Japanese world and Eastern culture. Their interactive workshop will look at ways to recycle things once thought of as trash into something new and useful.

Kajukenbo Workshop

Saturday, September 5, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. LP2 (PCC Plaza Level Room 211)

Kajukenbo Workshop at PMX!

For the first time ever, Pacific Media Expo (PMX) will be hosting a seminar on the American hybrid martial art of Kajukenbo. Developed in the late 1940s in the Palama settlement of Oahu, Hawaii, it is the fusion of the various systems present in that settlement of that time: Karate (KA), Judo (JU), Kenpo (KEN), and Boxing (BO). We are honored to have Professor Yutthana Tokijkla or Chief Toki, an 8th degree professor with 40 years of martial arts experience to introduce newcomers to this martial art. Chief Toki has experience in professional kickboxing and over 50 "Fight Club" types of fights. As the founder of Fighting Island Traditions, he pays homage to the systems and lineage that his fighting style has evolved from. He is currently based in San Bernardino, but presents and shares his martial art nationally. The workshop will be held Saturday, September 5 from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. in Live Programming 2 (PCC Plaza Level Room 211).

Fight Choreography Workshop

Saturday, September 5, 12:30 - 2:30 p.m. LP2 (PCC Plaza Level Room 211)

Fight Coreography Workshop at PMX!

Pacific Media Expo (PMX) will once again be hosting our popular fight choreography workshop on Saturday, September 5, 2015. The workshop will be conducted by Surawit Kang Sae. "Wit", as he is called by his close friends, is an American stuntman, fight choreographer, and stop motion actor of Thai and Chinese descent. He has worked on many American films such as Tropic Thunder with Ben Stiller and Robert Downey Jr., Red Dawn (2012) with Chris Hemsworth, and Cradle To The Grave with Jet Li, to name a few.

Filipino Boxing Workshop

Saturday, September 5, 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. LP2 (PCC Plaza Level Room 211)

Filipino Boxing Workshop at PMX!

Filipino Boxing, also known as Panantukan, Mano Mano, Pangamut, and Suntukan is a no nonsense self defense system derived from the movements of weaponry from the Filipino Martial Arts. Dirty Boxing, as it is commonly called, utilizes punches, kicks, elbows, knees, head butts, and other physical weapons in a wide array of combative combinations. Showcased in Hollywood films such as: The Bourne Identity Trilogy, Chronicles of Riddick, Quantum of Solace, and Equilibrium, this art of fist fighting is not used for sport, but as a means of street-oriented fighting. Its main intent is to end any unwanted physical conflict as quickly as possible. Mark Gonzales is an assistant instructor under Professor Steve del Castillo at Mt. San Antonio College, where they offer college credit courses on a variety of martial arts such as Brazilian Jiujitsu, Filipino Martial Arts, Kickboxing, etc. A community education course on Filipino Boxing is also offered where Mark runs the class every so often. The workshop will be held Saturday, September 5 from 3:00 until 5:00 p.m. in Live Programming 2 (PCC Plaza Level Room 211).

Console Gaming

All Days PCC Plaza Level Room 204

Console Gaming at PMX

Ever since the early 1970s, video games have given us some of the greatest media to date. The storytelling of Final Fantasy, masterpiece music from The Legend of Zelda, and visual design from The Shadow of the Colossus are all perfect examples of why a video gaming room is needed at Pacific Media Expo! For 2015, the gaming room will have stations for the most popular competitive games such as Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Ultra Street Fighter IV, and Super Smash Bros., as well as other fun games like Mario Party and Just Dance.

If you ARE the competitive type, then be sure to join our tournaments and put your skills to the test! Become the greatest world warrior in Ultra Street Fighter IV and smash your opponents out of this world in Super Smash Bros.
