Krav Maga & the Pistol

In the video below, you’ll see me demonstrating at the outdoor GZTac range. I’m shooting a course of fire – 10 rounds at an AR500 steel silhouette from just over 12 yards (approximately 40 feet). I’m shooting by utilizing the GZTac grip and the back half (or so) of the GZTac presentation…

The Passing of a Friend

I’m reprinting a report from Krav Maga Worldwide about the passing of a friend to many us – Kokushi Matsumoto. I had the opportunity to meet and train with Koko, as some of us called him, most memorably during a weeklong force training session. He was an exceptional Krav Maga practitioner and…

The Keto Reset

Let me first say that I have never been a fan of any fad diet. Ever. I have never understood the point of participating in some restrictive diet for a month or so only to eventually quit because–be honest–you hate it and it is unrealistic.  And end up right where you started,…

Critical Life Skills

Self-Defense Capacity Is Perhaps The Most Overlooked Critical Life Skill. I don’t think we can over-estimate the importance of understanding the magnitude and impact that teaching Krav Maga can be for our students and for us.

Joint Lock Flow Drill

People are often surprised when I introduce our basic joint lock flow drill. The surprise comes from a lack of consideration (or knowledge in the case of relatively new students) around our weapons take-away techniques.
