No styles, no systems, no rituals, no lineages, no masters, no labels, no belts, no katas, no uniforms, no dogmas;

Only the process of self actualization & personal expression of truth through functional combative movement and fitness.

On a purely physical level, we share how to individually and collectively use all of our natural tools as well as extended ones, offensively and defensively in a strategic and tactical manner and in all ranges of combat.

We're put through functional physical fitness training where we learn to push ourselves through our own perceived limitations. We also have much to offer on nutrition, health and optimum performance.

On a more cerebral level we learn about the psychology of violence, fear, stress & confrontation management skills, deescalation strategies and holistic survival tactics.

As the mind navigates the body; by challenging personal self defense dogmas and individual & core belief systems, personal growth and evolution occurs.

On a human level, we learn about the ripple effect and the moral, legal, and ethical consequences of our chosen actions while self examining our darkest emotions. We are encouraged to question everything, to learn to think for ourselves, to be more accountable and research everything we learn and to be open and responsive to life without judgment.

On a personal level, the training can make you face and slay your own demons.

Everything shared here is highly encouraged to be individually researched, to “absorb what is useful, add what is specifically of your own and disregard the rest.”

Back in the Saddle Again!

Well, I just started teaching again at the school I train BJJ. We had a nice turn out for the first couple of classes and it was nice to see old faces. What is nice about teaching again is that if forces me to review material that I have not studied intently in awhile. I am enjoying refreshing my memory and learning new things that I missed from before. I will post my class sessions later to get feedback on how to make it better and streamlined.

Class is only an hour long but I may make it 20 min longer so that we can have more time doing drills. It is nice to be back teaching groups I did not realize that I enjoyed it so much. Like I said before I am just getting back into the swing of things and I will keep you updated as I go on.
