NEW DVD One on One: High Intensity Personal Training for Fighters Find out more
The purpose of this site is to build a resource to educate martial artists about fighting and fight training. For many years my primary goal has been to rationalize combat so as to improve the fighting abilities of myself and others. With this site, I share my information.
The rise of MMA and combat sports, coupled with the advent of You Tube enabling virtually everything to be filmed, ought to de-mystify the martial arts. But unfortunately in the martial arts and self-defence industry the bullshit is so pervasive that many people don’t even know they’re standing in it up to their necks.
If you’re a martial arts aficionado, then not everything on this site is going to be pleasant reading for you. But remember that I could have cashed in on my grades and titles years ago if I was interested in profiting from telling people what they want to hear. I won’t compromise my integrity for money, status, or recognition. What you get on this site represents my best effort to inform you honestly about the reality of fighting and fight training—and knowledge like this belongs at the root of all martial arts.
