  Recently I read a post by an MMA instructor stating, ‘Why are people making things more difficult than they are?  Punch someone in the face…a punch is a punch, a face is a face.  It’s not all this biomechanics and thought.  Don’t overcomplicate what you are doing.’ I chuckled, wondering how many times this […]

A friend of mine recently began studying a great martial art, and he wanted to show me some of the techniques he had been training on.  We had been checking out Combative Striking and he had to show me his new style. After working out for a while (and being someone else’s tackling dummy) he was quite […]

My house was built in the 1940’s.  In the small hallway is a telephone stand, built into the wall, popular at the time for the one phone in the house. On this stand is my wallet, sunglasses, keys, lip balm, Glock 23, my dual magazine holster, my favorite watches, and my bracelet. Above this stand […]

Friends, In our manual, Efficient Perceptual Learning (EPL), we talk about how the brain and body learns. (EPL here:  http://goo.gl/f1LA0) In Direct Perceptual Testing (DPT), we talk about how to test the skills we’ve learned. (DPT here: http://goo.gl/vZGkL) People often do not understand why their techniques do not work.  They train and train, but under pressure, the […]

Often times when working with students, I like to use physics to simply stop what they are doing…especially in controlling locks. Many people think you have to fight your way out of a control lock in order to succeed…it’s either that, tap, or have something be injured or broken. The reality is you don’t – […]

Do you take pride in your work? I’m fortunate to have patient students. Your students are your mirror – they show every scowl, every scar, every bruise, every problem.  Or they show every laugh line, lesson learned,  every ‘light bulb’ moment. Do you have a broken mirror?  Do you have a mirror you don’t like […]
