Bag Training…

Bag training…  No not heavy bag training but weight bags that you can move around with like the Brute Force bags or Bulgarian bags, etc.  Sand weighted bags can really help you develop functional strength because the weight shifts and moves as you move.  You can carry the bags while walking, running, hiking, you can throw them you can really get after them with different muscle movement and exercises.  If you haven’t tried it yet do so!

Watch Your Six…

range1 (2)

Watch your six…  What does that mean.  It simply means to watch your back.  Know who is behind you and do not let someone behind you that you cannot trust.  At home I can relax and let my family go behind my back.  On the street or at work I do not have that luxury.  I constantly have to make sure that people are not walking up behind me where I could be in for a surprise.  Watching your back and knowing where people are around you is very important.  It speaks to a level of awareness that is effective and efficient for personal protection.  Out there in the world you need to have a level of awareness that allows you to know who is around you and where they are in relative to your position.  Your back, your six is a blind spot that you have to guard.  By knowing this you can eliminate many opportunities for a blind side by proper positioning and or placing some thing at your back so that to it is even harder for someone to get behind you.  I use that at every opportunity that I can.  So be aware and watch your six!  You won’t be disappointed with the results.

Cross Training…

WP_20151112_027

Many IRT practitioner’s cross train.  I really advise that you do this.  My experience is that this makes you a better practitioner even when in those rare times you experience some bad instruction or training.  At least then you see what you do not want to emulate!  Cross training is at the core of IRT.  We are a broad based system that allows a practitioner to be effective in any area from Weapons to Kicking, from Hand Strikes to Trapping and Joint Manipulation and finally Grappling.  I want you to explore in your training.  Constantly explore and evaluate your individual strengths and weaknesses.  Cross training allows you to fill gaps and bring something new into IRT from time to time.  If you experience some thing really cool please show me as I am always open to learn!

Reverend Richard Anderson

Group Picture B&W 2010

An IRT brother recently passed away.  Dick Anderson trained with me privately for years at my house.  Truly one of the greatest people I have ever met.  World War II veteran, reverend, father, martial practitioner and simply a wonderful person.  Dick trained in IRT weekly during my time in Alma, Michigan.  He would come to my house and we would train, chat and basically just enjoy each other’s company.  My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and especially his wife of 69 years Carolyn.  Dick, you were an inspiration to us all!

Tony Blauer’s Spear Technique

Masters And Champions 2015.Still005Posterized (2)

Well not really an innovation but more of an appropriation from older martial disciplines.  The Spear Technique or Spontaneous Protective Enabling Accelerated Response is a very valuable tool in a violent encounter.

Here I will let Tony explain it himself:
