Yesterday….

Yesterday marked a time milestone in my personal martial journey. Forty years of training. Forty years of all kinds of physical martial training from weapons, kicking, trapping, hands, strikes and grappling. Not to mention all of the mental and emotional training. I have personally enjoyed almost all of it. Forty years… I’m looking forward to so much more!

Balance…

Balance in your life is essential. I have met people who became consumed with their training and by doing so they neglected other parts of their life. From family to work and more they simply trained too much. While there is a absolutely nothing wrong with intense training. There is and will be a problem if you neglect other parts of your life. Balance is essential! Train hard but always have time for your family, work and other hobbies. Do not become so consumed that you neglect all aspects of your life!

Are You Really Serious…

Are you really serious about personal protection? Way to many people that I come in contact with fantasize about real world self defense skills. However, when it comes time to put the work in and also invest in those skills they simply fail to follow through. If you want to have real world personal protection skill sets you will need to work very hard at it both physically and mentally. You will also need to spend money to acquire the skills through instruction and even more money to acquire the necessary tools such as firearms, knives, etc. This process is not cheap. For instance I recently received a couple of days of long range precision firearms training with a world class instructor. The equipment I used cost well over $6000 and instruction cost another $1000. However, this is an area I want to improve I. so I sought out the best instruction available and bought high quality equipment. If you want real world skills there is a cost that is quite often physical, mental and monetary. Nothing is free in life and especially not life saving skill sets!
