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.”

The brutal truth and reality of a knife attack....

Laying down some truth on knife assaults..... and somehow reminding myself of Count Dante from back when....

Fuck the box think outside your perceived reality!

From the Manifesto of Growth, principle number 2 states:

"Forget about just good. Good is a known quantity. Good is what we all agree on. Growth, evolution, is not necessarily rooted in good. Growth is an exploration of unlit recesses that may or may not yield to our research. As long as you only stick to 'good' you will never have real growth."

Bruce Lee prophetically stated in the legendary movie Enter the Dragon, "Don't concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory." He also said, which millions quote, "Absorb what is useful, add what is specifically of your own and disregard the rest." along with " Using no way as way, having no limitations as limitations."

Brilliant words. Brilliant quotes. Brilliant ideology. To live by these words, one would have to greatly reduce the levels of judgement we possess as a species. Judgement tends to lead to subjectivism via pre-conceived notions therefore not allowing one to explore "all the heavenly glory" as judgment fixates one on the proverbial finger regardless of what it may be.

It would require not to be bound by former truths, to literally "empty one's cup" in order to expand our conscious horizons beyond what we presently believe to be set in stone, and perceived of as real... it would require the ability to explore all facets good and bad as no growth happens strictly in the good of things.

The most challenging moments in life, the most painful ones, the one's that permanently scar the soul to its core... these are the moments fighters call "Baptism Under Fire". These are the moments that lead the human being to the crossroads of growth & evolution OR regression & self destruction. These are the defining moments in a human being's life that either make or break em. No two ways about that, growth, evolution occurs when our beliefs are challenged, our core foundations are dissed on, pissed on and beat down and it takes more than rising from up off the ground to define getting back on the saddle as most get back on the exact same saddle they fell off of.

Getting back up is not the tough part nor is it the goal, that is but the subservient beginning.... learning from the hells we endure, put ourselves through and choose based on our core beliefs.... growing from the understanding of what went wrong and evolving into a better human being while moving on fighting the good fight, being accountable for all things in our lives.

Every great achiever, every extra ordinary human being that ever lived; be they world changers, entertainers, politicians, activists, performer, teacher or religious guru all followed very similar paths, they all, if you will, swam in the same sea of subconsciousness regardless of differing paths or choices made - seemingly out of reach to the average folk. So much so… some of these extra ordinary human beings were murdered, condemned, chastised, ridiculed, defamed, imprisoned etc. out of great fear they would change the ever so precious status quo… the sea they swam in was the sea of unwaivered redefined beliefs.

From healing diseases to how long we live, from success in careers and relationships, from making to breaking it, everything that we experience as and in our “life” is directly linked to our core beliefs. To change our lives, relationships and even the world, to bring peace to our families, nations and even the world requires a precise shift in the way we think and process information outside of the status quo and general acceptance of societal and general thought processes.

I believe why we, the human race, are here is simply to evolve as a collective organism. Continuously evolve as a specie, never, ever cease to evolve for the potentials, the possibilities are truly as limitless as we believe them to be. I believe humanity has the potential of one day reaching the very status of being we gave and call "God". 

Evolution folks…. Human evolution. If every free thinker outside the proverbial societal, religious, cultured, race based, political and deemed “normal” box in the world did indeed listen to the majority of the status quo mother fuckers out there…. We’d still all be living in caves and Butt Scratchers wouldn't exist…. We live our lives based on what we believe about our world, ourselves, our capabilities and our limits.  Choose freely I say as beliefs are the programs that create the patterns of human reality.

Do some shit!

I wonder what Christ would say?

Wonder how much the good ol' pope in all his spiritual and Christ like grandeur could get for his gold ring?  I also wonder just how many homeless and starving around the world could be fed from the sale of that ring?  I wonder what Christ thinks of this? I question the kissing of this gold piece of metal on this old bastards finger?  I question the Vatican's wealth while 75% of the world's population live in misery and famine? I question the marble, the gold and the jewels.... this is Christianity? Really?


Think, Ask, Question, Research, ACT:

How... as a species... are we not doing anything about this?!?!?!
The real face of war.

And if this was YOUR child???

How in this day and age can we allow this to happen when 1 Blockbuster movie weekend gross can feed a nation? When one star athlete's monthly salary can feed a village? The fuck are we doing???

Let alone a quarter of what these 2 royal fucks are sitting on.... the Christian pope's ring alone could feed a small country for fuck's sakes.

Some harsh reality for you.... now imagine seeing this in front of your face daily. Out of sight, out of mind.... so here ya go.  
Things starting to add up yet???

With every penny YOU spend on the majority of the brand names YOU PURCHASE, YOU directly encourage the majority of what you see in these pictures here. DO SOME SHIT!!!!

Welcome to DEMOCRACY brothers and sisters. Welcome to war. Welcome to the rich getting richer and ... well....

I personally know several people who lost their jobs, had  been threatened to have their children removed in a custody battle, were refused jobs for their political beliefs and voicing of their opinions on Facebook, and this in 4 differing countries, not just the good ol' US of A.

Consume, Consume, Consume.... now you can do it while you watch TV, on your couch sitting on your fat fuckin lazy ass while purchasing shit you don't need online!


Baffling isn't it???

Because even foreign animals are considered "the Enemy"... this dog was probably a terrorist , I mean, it is black isn't it? 

Yeah? well fuck you. :`)
