    Review of Ray Carbullido Sacred Movements/Efficiency of Humanity Seminar

    Ray Carbullido is here in Phoenix, Arizona this week and I had the opportunity to train with him in a private session earlier today. Having touched the man he has obviously embodied certain things within himself that many do not have. On Thursday evening he had a free intro class open to the...

    Methods of Power Delivery

    I don't really like the term "power generation" as I don't feel like this is something I'm making more like letting happen. I've been putting together a list of the various methods I've been exposed and where I learned it. Please, feel free to comment, by no means do I mean this to be a...
