Kids: The Words, Warning, Whomp Protocol

One of my sons had come home from school recently after being pushed repeatedly on the playground during a soccer game at recess. He disengaged and withdrew from the situation, which seemed like a fine choice to me. But he knew – even at a young age – that this (or something…

How to Get Shot (and How to Avoid it)

I hosted another Simunition event last Saturday, and I was working with a highly diverse group of Kravists in terms of age, sex, and training experience. For those of you unfamiliar with Simunition – it is a set of self-defense and training products that includes a specialized barrel and slide that fits…

Learn Differently-Reverse Engineering

I recently began teaching my Master Class students various weapon threat defenses by starting and focusing on the “break & take.” To my surprise, the students appreciated the detail often developed around the addressing of danger being applied to the break & take technical aspects of the defenses. My surprise was more…

Reach Out to Veterans Now!

I’m calling on our entire community to share this video – as much as you can – to reach out to veterans throughout our country. As Afghanistan crumbles into disarray and our government bungles the U.S. withdrawal, calls to veteran hotlines are at an all-time high. We need to reach out and…

A Vision for Violence

It never fails. Every time I bring up the concept of having a “vision for violence” in my Krav Maga classes, I get some pretty confused looks. And it’s no doubt, the idea is (on its face) foreign and even uncomfortable to consider. But I’m not referring to a vision for how…

Krav Maga Sticky Hands?

If you have previously studied Gung Fu (Kung Fu) or Silat, you may have trained a skill-based drill often called “sticky hands.” And while the application in defense (and eventually as a trapping mechanism) may not be the Krav Maga approach, adapting (not adopting) the skill itself in specific circumstances (defenses) may…

Mask Mandate Quandary

Here in Texas, the COVID-19 restrictions are being lifted this week. As martial artists and instructors, specifically in states currently lifting mandates, we must thoughtfully consider our response. No matter how you respond, there are large segments of your student base that will be upset. That’s what leadership is…making difficult decisions based…

Holiday Retention and Fun

Every year, around the holiday season, student attendance can become sporadic for obvious reasons. If you teach any of your programs in a manner that requires the class to move (more or less) as one unit, you might consider implementing some “holiday fun training” into your curriculum to ensure those that attend…

I Can’t Do That…yet!

Kids Grow When Encouraged to Apply Effort to Any Problem, Reenforcing That It’s Effort That Gets Results. In the United States, it is common to hear the well-intentioned phrase, “Oh, you’re so smart,” or some variation of this statement, reinforcing in our children what Stanford University Psychologist, Carol Dweck, considers to be a…

The Beginning of the Beginning: My Krav Journey

Krav Maga has Changed the way I Approach Life for the Better I have trained in Krav Maga for two and a half years, and in that time, my life has changed drastically. Simply put; Krav saved me. Unless you knew me before I began Krav, you would not understand that statement. If…

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. In their purest format, Krav Maga weapons take-aways are joint locks that have been repurposed. The basic joint lock…
