Folks, we live in a dangerous world. There is simply no denying it! Just turn on the news and you will realize this is true! It is a beautiful world with a vast majority of wonderful people. However, there are also some really dangerous people. These people have no problem killing you or killing me. They are wired just a little bit differently! I have always wanted to be physically effective. That is why I originally started studying in the Martial Sciences and also why I continue to this day. I want to be physically effective if anyone ever tries to hurt me or my loved ones. I am sitting here reflecting on yesterdays training because it fits with today’s topic. Yesterday I got up got the family going and then headed out for my first private lesson. We worked on single-stick, double stick, knife, trapping hands with a tiny bit of joint locking and also some hand striking with the focus mitts. Afterwards I headed out to the range where I proceeded to work with a 9mm handgun and a 45 caliber handgun. (both Glocks because I love them) Then I proceeded to sight in one of my rifles (30.06) scope. Later in the evening I got in a quick kettlebell work and followed that with some grappling exercises. You see in Instinctive Response Training we train every day. Some times it is more some times less but every practitioner should try to get some training in even if it is only some mental training. We train with Tools/Weapons, Kicking, Empty Hand Strikes, Trapping and Joint Manipulation and finally grappling. IRT at its core is having a well-rounded approach! Why well-rounded? Well IRT practitioners want to be able to deal with any situation. It is in the end about being able to survive a violent confrontation or just to survive in some sort of crises. (ie. earthquake, storm, tornado, etc.) The world we live in is dangerous. Some times mother nature may throw us a problem or some violent individual could engage with us. I want to be able to survive and be physically effective irregardless of the problem. Now I may never have to use my skills again. (yes I have in the past) Or I may have to use them again. I prepare and train for that one or two instances in the rest of my life where I may need them. Hopefully my training will give me the edge and I hope you prepare as well so that your training will give you that edge as well! Stay strong and train always!!!
