You must make sure you don’t let the bad guy dictate where you go or how you get there

The Article

Fighting is difficult!

Especially when you are unathletic, out of shape, or do not know what good position is.

Don’t put all your eggs in one grappling basket.

You must make sure you don’t let the bad guy dictate where you go or how you get there.

If you are training for self-defense or work, learn how to be solid on your feet… preferably a monster on your feet!

Don’t live in fantasy land and think you’ll end up the victor in an altercation because you carry a pistol.

Adversity can come at any distance… far or really close.

Position comes before everything. And position starts on your feet!

The photo above is a screenshot from a video where my prototype offset for the holster broke.

However, I was able to take off the holster with the pistol in it, including taking off leg strap, laying it on the ground, then releasing retention and drawing the student’s pistol while controlling him the whole time.

Position before submission is the expression, but position comes before everything!

And position starts on your feet.

I do not only teach techniques… more importantly, I teach core values and how to think!

I try to preach the good word and slip messages in through stories and real-life examples.

I need the things I teach to be remembered by students so that they can use them during challenging combat situations.
