    Fatigue sucks

    There is honestly probably a lot of truth in drop bears assessment. I have grappled many people who thought and commented to me about how I was really strong and in amazing shape. As they gasped for air and where exhausted. The reality was, they were trying to use strength and not breathing...

    Cycle of operations... Precision striking capabilities

    The question to me isn't if you can throw a follow up strikes from a different angle. For me the question is can I throw any strike or do any defensive angle from various stances? And do it with the same speed, timing and power?

    The importance of toughness?

    Well..... In a real fight you might get injured. I think it's better to be prepared for that type of thing mentally. I'm not saying you need to go somewhere where you will get injured. I am saying that I believe mental toughness is an important part of being prepared for the martial aspect of...

    The importance of toughness?

    I think a combative mindset means immediately accepting a negative, then instead of dwelling on the negative, doing something to create a positive. That mentally comes from doing hard and difficult things.

    Cycle of operations... Precision striking capabilities

    In other words when you learn to return to your original stance after a strike, you are learning good defense also. You are also learning how to throw follow up strikes. When I say stance I mean attention to detail on feet spacing, balance distribution, hand position and so forth.

    Cycle of operations... Precision striking capabilities

    Think about it this way.... Offense and defense all come from a fighting stance. The more I perfect and the better I can continually reset to that stance, the better my offense and defense will be. A proper stance gives you offense and defense capabilities. The better you can reset to that...

    Cycle of operations... Precision striking capabilities

    It makes sense. The real important part of what I'm trying to describe is returning to the exact starting point every time. Stance is 101 stuff, but if we can learn to return to the exact stance (precision) every time, that's a massive advantage. Because from that exact stance I can perform any...

    The main reason you can't shot a handgun accurately

    If our highest priority is more efficiency and accuracy, that's actually easy to improve. It could be drastically improved almost overnight, by mandating officers carried a more efficient weapon that is easier to shoot, and have it on their person most of the time. But there are always...

    The main reason you can't shot a handgun accurately

    I don't watch music videos if that is what that is? I'm definitely not interested in politics. More training, I'm all about it.

    The main reason you can't shot a handgun accurately

    I'm always an advocate of more training. No argument their. That costs a lot of money and you would have to hire a lot more cops if they will be off the streets no answering calls for service doing a lot more training. Regarding disarming cops, that's not a reasonable thing to do, no matter how...

    The main reason you can't shot a handgun accurately

    Not wanting to have a long gun in your hand, but retaining a handgun in your hip is a tactical decisions that has zero to do with disarming police officers. I have unslung my long gun and grounded it many times during SWAT operations to clear a small bathroom, cover a difficult angle walking...

    Quantity of Memorization

    Skribs this is a great question and a great topic. I have been doing Muay Thai for around a couple years in Thailand and have had to memorize exactly zero combinations. They training I am receiving in striking is designed to prepare me to throw any combination at any time. No memorization...

    The main reason you can't shot a handgun accurately

    That's an important part of the equation, but not the whole picture. Certainly I have seen some departments who focus more on the fundamentals, and have a budget to pay officers for extra range time, ammunition and instruction. And they do better in shootings. But if it's not mandatory or you...

    The main reason you can't shot a handgun accurately

    Great question!!!! And again, lots of things that could be said. But it start with developing the 20 percent of the skill in marksmanship. Being predictably highly accurate under no stress. How do you do that? That's a deep subject, but in simple terms you develop a personal, repeatable process...

    The main reason you can't shot a handgun accurately

    There are a lot of people who think it's impossible to expect anyone to predictably shoot a handgun well under that kind of stress. It's a minority of instructors and trainers who are even significantly raising expectations in this area.

    The main reason you can't shot a handgun accurately

    You are still trying to asses if cops should be armed, that's not a reasonable starting point to even begin to ask the right questions. I repeat, this is an obstacle to having a meaningful conversation, based on addressing the problem and real solutions. Of course they should be armed! The real...

    The reality is you are sending cops into Based on the totality of this post, its clear there is a lot of baggage here. I hope objective reasoning regarding this subject can still occur. Giving the benefit of doubt, I will continue engaging regarding the actual subject. Any traffic cop, or desk...

    Double tap combination strategy

    When first you don't succeed, try again... One of the simplest combinations is to just repeat the technique. If you try a hip throw and you aren't successful, try to hit it again. Usually it ends up being a more powerful hip throw than the first one would have been. If your body kick fails...

    The importance of toughness?

    I think childhood, world view, culture and I bias towards risk all come into play. I do think it can be learned, or rather developed.

    The importance of toughness?

    Sure. But a truly prepared combative mindset can adjust outside of what it trained to mitigate. In those moments you find out how important mental flexibility, and adaptability is to survival. This is where martial artists break down often, because many things can only truly be experienced...

    Cycle of operations... Precision striking capabilities

    One thing that has been pivotal in my understanding of Muay Femur and/or precision striking is the realization that the process is similar to the cycle of operation any weapon has to complete. Such as the cycle of operation on an AR-15. If the cycle is completed the strike will have...

    The main reason you can't shot a handgun accurately

    You realize you just criticized me for prideful statements and are now bragging about dominating a cop on the mat. I also have thoughts on PTSD and suicide related to police work. Which I don't suffer from. But that's another topic.

    The main reason you can't shot a handgun accurately

    It's because one, I am there on a different mission, without the duties and responsibilities of law enforcement. Also, I'm rarely legal to carry weapons in those countries. Also, living isn't my highest priority, so I'm willing to take risks to accomplish certain an objects. Not working in law...

    The main reason you can't shot a handgun accurately

    The implication was my bias towards feeling like I need a gun was clouding my judgement on what is possible. Having 20+ years of armed law enforcement experience, plus traveling and working in 19 counties without one significantly debunks that accusations. Take it how you want, it's extremely...

    The importance of toughness?

    Cool video. I think the idea of you don't need to be tough, just "trained or untrained" works until it doesn't. It works to prepare for the knows, but it breaks down when you experience some of the acute or chronic unknowns. Physical and mental toughness certainly have their place in importance.
