Are You Training Hard Enough…

20180811_185514

Jerson “Nene” Tortal who has never slacked off in his training!

Are you training hard enough?  Is your training going to be enough in a moment of violence?  I have had the pleasure recently of watching some fairly skilled martial practitioners who operate in a violence profession practice here in Las Vegas.  Some were really working hard and some not so much.   These individuals who were not working that hard will have to deal with violence in the near future.  It is a given that they will use their training soon.  However, some of them are just going through the motions.  They might be in for a rude shock the next time they have to utilize these skills.  As martial practitioners preparing for a potential violent confrontation it should be understood that we probably won’t get to pick the time or place where the violence will happen.  No, we need to be prepared at all times!  This means we need to be training regularly and we must ensure that we get enough technical training as well as muscular and cardiovascular training.  If you are really putting in the work, you will make sure that you are practicing your martial skills.  You will also then make sure you get your weight lifting in as well as your running, biking, swimming, etc. for cardiovascular health.  Regularly you should evaluate your training and determine if you are training hard enough to maintain a “ready state” for that moment of violence.  If you are kudo’s to you!  However, my experience is that very few people really are.  Most are just getting by and some are going through the motions.  Do not be the person “going through the motions!”  Instead take control and ownership and make sure you are training hard enough!

Front Sight Law Enforcement Course…

Front Sight Law Enforcement Course

I recently had the pleasure of going through a Front Sight Law Enforcement firearms course.  I have to say I was impressed with the instructor’s and the facility.  The participants in the course learned a lot and became better instructors.  Key points were the diagnostic sessions that will help us evaluate our students/cadets to give them feedback to improve.  Definitely a great time and I feel privileged to have been able to participate and learn and earn credentials!

Surround Yourself With Good Instructors and Practitioners…

mc-photo-14

One thing that is really important on your martial journey is to surround yourself with good instructors and practitioner’s.  Throughout my training over the years I have benefited from having good instructors and been incredibly fortunate to have trained with many other good martial practitioner’s.  No one can become a proficient martial practitioner unless they benefit from instruction and from having partner’s to train with who help them to improve.  You simply cannot do it alone.  No, instead you need other people to show you the way and also to push you to improve and get better!  Throughout almost forty years in the Martial Sciences I have been blessed with both.  My training partners have helped me improve and my teacher’s have shown me the way!  You need to surround yourself with both and if you do you are on path during this martial journey!
