Choosing a Self Defense / Martial Arts School: A Parents Guide


"Daddy, I want to take Karate!""Mommy, Jimmy on the bus hit me again today"There are many reasons why parents want to sign their children up for Self Defense or Martial Arts classes. Once you have made the decision, now you are faced with many different options and questions.

Basic Drills


We all have a good foundation in the basic blows and combinations.Think about adding the following drills to your basic syllabus.

A Beginning History of Old School Jujutsu - Part 1


Over the next couple of day's I will writing an article of the history of Pre-WWII Japanese Jujitsu/Judo. I wasn't sure where to start, but here I am so let's get started.

A Great Question!


It's a question that we went back and forth with for awhile ourselves many moons ago. The "how" and "why" of our conclusions may be of some interest.

The Acronym That Saved My Life


Frequently, I get asked about certifications, systems or methods. We made a decision a long time ago of purposely staying away from things like this.

Are You Still Standing Toe to Toe?


How many times do you practice techniques with your training partner and you stay in the same spot? Next time you are training, see how much you and your partner move. You will find you move very little or not at all.

Are You Frustrated Yet?


I was talking to a parent recently and they told me that their son was not going to compete in wrestling because they were afraid they would get frustrated when he lost. The parent felt the child was far too sensitive to handle the frustration of failure and may get 'burnt out'.

By-Rote Combinations


Do not believe that practicing "by rote" 1-2-3,etc. type "responses" to street attacks is a viable or particularly useful training exercise.

Catholic Self Defense


Note: I wrote this essay regarding the development of Tekkenryu jujutsu. However, I think it is applicable for all methods of self defense.

Bogu Training


About four years ago Carl recommended we start using the Bogu during our kumite (sparring practice). This method was developed in Okinawa and then found its way into mainland Japan and eventually to the U.

Im Soooo Confused...


I was going to write about the BASICS of "practical unarmed combat". Things like a solid and productive core of strength training, development of real speed and power.

Content, Are We?


I asked a simple question at the last seminar:"How much has everyone improved in the year since we last got together?"I've practiced the same basics everyday for decades.Everyday Rain or shine.

Does It Hurt When I Do This?


Let me tell you something. I don't bruise too easily.

The Dojo


Just as an aside. For those who would "box" us in to specific "category".

Elements of Unarmed Combat


Custom build your own personal "system":Useful areas of training and study to find, train and develop the various "parts" -To develop STRIKING:Western BOXINGSavateMuay Thai (Burmese Boxing)Jiu Jitsu ATEMIOld style KEMPOTo develop GRAPPLING:Catch/Freestyle WrestlingGreco-Roman WrestlingJUDOSambo (Real SAMBO/SOMBO)Brazilian JujutsuA comprehensive study of the above will provide methods applicable to ANY so-called "ranges" of combat.They will also provide ALL "techniques" necessary -Striking, punching, kicking, knees, elbows, headbutts, biting, gouging, ripping, clawing, crushing, joint breaking(from the neck to the ankles), throws, trips, take-downs, strangles, chokeholds, and other assorted "nasties".
