In the Pursuit of Martial Excellence!


     My whole life has almost been spent in the pursuit of martial excellence.  Whether working with tools of all sorts ie. firearms, blades, sticks, etc. or kicking, striking with the hands, trapping and joint manipulation and grappling.  Instinctive Response Training is the vehicle that allows myself and my students to continue to grow!

     During the course of this blog I will put up information about what we are doing, how we are doing it and why!   One of the most important concepts in the pursuit of excellence is the idea of Living on the Edge!

       Living on the Edge means to simply not get comfortable in what you are doing.  Never take anything for granted, never think that you have arrived and most important never stop learning.  This is the approach that I take to pursuing martial excellence.  I never try to get very comfortable and I always take the approach that this may be the last time that I train.  If you are on the edge there is always great potential for growth.  This growth can only be fueled when you do not take things for granted.  Particularly when you constantly push yourself and those around you.  So in the end do not take things for granted because everything and anything can change on a dime.  Life is all about change and strife.  It is how you deal with it and continue on that counts.  Live on the Edge and prosper in your martial growth!

This has been and IRT message that you should not forget!
