FMA Digest Competitor of the Year Award 2009

I asked the Editor Steven Dowd why I was picked and he said it was my attitude to competition, that had earned it. Yes, it was noted that I fought many times, in many places, but it was my possitive attitude… Continue

Saturday Morning Practice

We had another of our saturday morning workouts. Get people to understand foot work is critical in fighting. If you have good foundation and the transference of energy then with timing can deliver the hits. It sounds simple and broken down it is but to master it is another story. I am amazed at how most people do not know were their feet are in relation to something. I believe if you can dance, you have learn rhythm and timing, then you can learn to move and fight.

Lunch time work out

We have group that has been meeting for a lunch time workout for three and half years at my work. I just had one of my students reach his 3 year anniversary. It was great workout with a combat flow utilizing all three ranges for stick fighting, them dissarming each other and working with knives, then going to empty hands with a takedown and choke. We then practiced empty hands, utilizing limb desruction methods, elbows or knee strikes and hooking/sweeping. We finished with some knife sparring… Continue

The Deep End

Martial arts teachers are a fickle bunch to be sure, most believe that a slow steady progression from a dogmatic position is the only way for an adult beginner to understand the nuances of an art. They take their raw recruits and place them at such a low level on the learning curve that it truly hinders growth and confidence. I have found it detrimental to adult students to place them on the same ladder as a child student. Adults and children are different in their mannerisms, experience’s and… Continue
