Re: BJJ--How applicable?

Ok, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say something controversial. Something that 99% of instructors don't say: There comes a time that every technique will fail. Accept it. Train for it. Embrace it. It's not going to change. Even unconsciousness is only temporary. The only true restraint is de...

The concept of long range is artificial in a real fight. A blend of thai clinch and greco roman limb and torso controls is a solid skillset and a grea...

Re: Weapon Retention: Myth VS Fact

When I teach holstered retention I begin with sucker punch and choke escape drills and stress the importance of staying conscious in order to retain the firearm. Then we have a discussion about kit that's fit for purpose - i.e. appropriate for the officers role, sturdy belt, sturdy buckle with reten...
