    Im am trying to come up with exercises/activities (besides fighting) which lend themselves as something you may have to do to escape a violent situation. Things that with physical training, can be improved on.


    So far I have


    Fighting, swimming, running, par core, climbing and hiking


    Any more suggestions?

    Exercise #1:

    "Be honest with yourself." - A person should know his limitations.

    So we're just starting the same threads here and on MAP, and getting the same answers now, yeah?

    Seriously, get to a school. Learn before you start trying to put things together. Whereabouts are you (I seriously doubt "Vagabond" as a location...)? The accent was Australian, and your original webpage ended in .com.au, so I (or a few others here) might know somewhere you could get these answers... cause, at the moment, it really seems like you're trying to get forums to do your work for you, without you getting any of the understanding that goes along with a proper education.

    It's good that you seen this - thankfully, you'll be safe from any chance of being quoted in his book.

    Learn how to make your buttcheeks vibrate so fast that you'll be able to fly away, vagabond style.

    Don't put your body in a place where it might need to escape a violent situation, using all of the above excellent suggestions :)

    Correct. I think it is best to get information from a number of sources. If the information is the same then good.

    "Whereabouts are you (I seriously doubt "Vagabond" as a location...)?"

    Also correct. Vagabond is not a location. It is a reference that I constantly move about. If you want specifics, right now Im in malaysia, in a couple of weeks Ill be in China, a fw months after that i may or may not be in the US.. and so on...

    "at the moment, it really seems like you're trying to get forums to do your work for you"

    This is not my intention although I understand your point of view

    Do some research into de-escalation and talking your way out of things. Verbal judo. It goes a long way.

    Stop.

    Stop trying to get a substitute for actual education.

    Stop thinking you know anything.

    Stop thinking your in a position to educate or teach.

    If you want to be in a position to teach, stop moving for once, settle down, and actually study. You haven't done that yet.

    You know what? Just stop.

    Any physical activity will certainly give benefits cardio wise. Of course, as someone else mentioned, being able to verablly defuse a situation, in addition to plain old awareness, is a huge plus.

    Out of curiosity, what is your training background? I assume that you're interested in training, judging by recent threads of yours. Are there no schools in your area to train at?

    Hi Chris,

    You said it a few times and Ive just been ignoring it but advice of 'just stop' is the worst advice I have ever heard. I hope you don't teach you students that. . In fact most of your comments are just plain negative..

    Well no, I take that back.. At the start your comments were very insightful, just as of late they have been negative

    This came pretty close to good advice, until you assumed to know what I have and havent done.

    Actually, the first half of the first sentence is really good from a business perspective also

    This is the kind of information thats actually useful to me. I think Ill just stick to replying to posts like this from now on.. its a much better use of time.

    I have done some research on 'verbal judo' in the past so thanks for bringing it up. Ill definately look into it some more.

    I posted something for this at http://www.martialtalk.com/forum/showthread.php/107696-FASD-Street-Fighting-Strategy/page2

    Thanks for an on-topic post.

    Chris gets that way after needing to repeat or explain the same general thing a few times to no avail.
    Or something like that.

    Right...

    Your entire laundry list of training was short stints with no real basis, which shows through in all of your videos (pity they're not up anymore... hmm...), all (I'm going to repeat that for emphasis here... ALL) of your blogs show that you have no real grounding or experience. That's why I said for you to kill the site (you haven't.... you've changed its look, so it's prettier, at least, but the content is still terrible), it's doing no one any good other than your ego.

    I was going to put this in your "FASD Strategy" thread, but as you've decided that I'm being (potentially needlessly) negative... here's your blog on group assaults:

    And, to ensure that you weren't taken out of context, here is the blog post itself: http://firstactionselfdefense.net/beat-hostile-gang-street-fight/

    If you think any part of this is good advice, get out of teaching self defence. If you think any of this results in survival, get out of fantasy land.

    And, yeah, I'm getting a little fed up... it's just too easy to show how bad you are.123
