Fighting From the Flinch...

That's right you read correctly flinch not clinch. Reality based martial arts needs to be just that reality based (no brainer right). Now I want you to think about two things first how do you normally stand and walk and second how do the techniques that you teach or learn start (from what position)? Now let me ask you a question how often do you walk around in a fighting stance? Answer never,

Martial Arts and the Firearm

           People often overlook, combat shooting or discard it as not a martial arts or something that is separate from the martial arts. But the truth is that no only is it a martial art, it is an integral martial arts for the modern martial artist. Now I know a lot of martial artists that will tell me that shooting is not a martial art, or that they study because guns are tools for the unskilled blah blah blah...and a myriad of other excuses of false ideas. Many of these naysayers are the same people that expound the benefits of training with a sword. Now before you get your panties in a bunch let me say that there is NOTHING wrong with training with a sword, but please don't try and tell me that because you train with a sword that you don't need firearms training because you can use a sword or that training with a sword is reality training any other fantasy type statement like that. Unless you live in feudal Japan or medieval Europe you are not training for reality. Lets be real for a second, even if the gun is not your weapon of choice it will usually be the bad guys first choice.

Why We Train!

Sometimes I feel it is important to remember why we train, why we spend hours Upon hours and years upon years training. It is why we do thousands and sometimes hundreds of thousands of repetitions. Why we run and lift weights, why we really dedicate our lives to this thing we call the martial arts. Now I don't train because I want to be a champion, or to prove how tough I am. I don't want to be the next ultimate fighter, or K1 champion. So why do I train?

The reality of Knife Defense...

I was a little reluctant to write this as it was similar to an earlier post that I had written but felt compelled after hearing a conversation today about "reality" training and viewing some reality JiuJitsu techniques. Now before I start and as someone who has studied JiuJitsu in the past I DO understand that not all techniques and teachers are equal and WOULD not label anyone style as deficient, it just happened that it was a JiuJitsu instructor teaching and he repeatedly called them jiujitsu techniques. The thing that was blatantly obvious when watching these techniques is that they were empty hand techniques, and NOT designed for a blade defense, as on more than one occasion had it been a real blade the instructor would have slit his own wrists. Again not saying anything bad about the system just the techniques that were being taught. OK now on with the show.
