Is Your Martial Arts Training Backwards Image

I have a problem with "martial arts". No, I'm not going to launch into some "anti-martial arts" rant about how it's ineffective in a real street fight (though I have my opinions). But the problem I have with most martial arts systems is that they teach their students how to defend themselves completely BACKWARDS! Let me explain... If you've ... more

How To Deal With Gangs Image

I'm currently working in a high-crime area where I frequently come upon gangs of older teens and young twenty-something's hanging out in a crowd on the street corner having a good time. Sometimes that "good time" involves one of them stroking their own ego by hassling someone walking by that "doesn't belong there". Someone like me! This can be... more
