My New Keris…

So while I was traveling, training and enjoying Bali I had the opportunity to pick up this beautiful Keris.  The Keris is a very special wavy bladed dagger found in Indonesia, Malayasia and the Southern Philippines.  This beautiful one from Bali is simply very finely crafted and was worth every penny!

Travelling…

20180929_141640

I’ve been traveling abroad and just enjoying sight-seeing, being a tourist and of course training in the Martial Sciences.  It is amazing really how few people actually train in their native martial arts.  The numbers when I have travelled abroad in my journey’s have been very low.  They might have heard about them but not experienced what their own unique culture has to offer in this area.  I do get it.  Not everyone wants to train.  It is a small percentage of people who actually want to partake but it is disappointing at times.  So on this recent journey I had the opportunity to learn some Silat from a practitioner at a resort who has studied several Silat systems in Java and a Silat system from Bali.  We had a brief training session where he showed me some specifics on these Silat systems and I am of course eternally grateful.  When you are travelling try to pick up some skills from local practitioner’s and learn!  Be a student, and learn.  You may just find that this will not only make you happy at the time but also invigorate your training when you get home.  Most importantly, explore as this is what the Martial Sciences are all about.  Your personal exploration!

The Most Neglected Area Of Your Martial Science Training…

The Most Neglected Area Of Your Martial Science Training…

Opposite Lever

 

In my experience the most neglected part of Martial Science training is Attribute Development.  Way to many people work on skills, technique but neglect the often painful training for cardio, strength and flexibility.  If you plan on being successful in a violent encounter it is not enough to have good technique.  Way to many people fall into the technique trap.  No, you need good technique, good cardio, good strength, good flexibility, etc.  Your individual training on your attributes is extremely important.  It is vital.  Quite often in my experience those people who have spent time on their attribute development succeed.  This is based on real world personal experience.  Literally, first hand experience in violent encounters.  If you want to be effective, make sure that you do not neglect developing your attributes to their maximum potential!  Trust me on this!
