Re: What martial art books do you read ?
Its how your grandpa would talk to you about shooting. He addresses self defense with comments like “when a man demonstrates, in effect, that he is ready and willing to kill you, your response should not be fearful but wrathful”
Full of good nuggets that are most definitely self defense, but does ramble on with some old stories, kind of like, well kind of like you would expect a grandpa to….May 30, 2011 at 11:27 pm #82230

Re: increased terrorism riskquote tech94:
I am a firm believer that safety and security is a personal responsibility. If the individual takes responsibility for themselves they will train, learn to use tools, and generally be aware/ready to take care of themselves. I also believe that this would lead to groups of people being willing to step in and stop tragedy when possible.
I don’t know that it would have stopped the attack, but I have to believe it would have mitigated the resulting tragedy.
I also believe it would give future ‘attackers’ something to think about.May 3, 2011 at 11:17 pm #81981

Re: How to increase punch stamina
train… hit classes, hit multiple classes.. does the gym your at have a cross fit or similar program? It will come in time, training is what will get you there. All the things suggested will help, but remember, nothing worthwhile is going to happen overnight…April 18, 2011 at 11:33 pm #81829

Re: Hammerfist to the neckquote Reaper1:
How hard is to hard when you or your family is in danger of serious harm? If I have to hit, its going to be as hard as I can as fast as I can because my family or myself is in danger and this is the way to get out of it.
Im not qualified to comment on legal aspects, you will find that most on the internet will supply some sort of disclaimer anytime you approach a “legal question”. Those issues are between you, your defense, and your legal/justice system.
I still would rather be alive or have my family alive to deal with the legal aspects, thats better then the alternative…June 11, 2009 at 5:53 pm #76139

Re: Am I too intense?
I have on occasion stated “If your partner screams out in pain or complains that you are going to hard, you are doing it right good job”
We need to keep our training partners around so we try to not injure them, however we go hard.May 12, 2009 at 5:28 pm #75550
Re: Want to see how quickly a knife can kill you?quote BradM:
The victim initiated the contact both guys are guilty here. In this thread there are a couple different discussions going on about this.
When I watched that video it looked to me like the attacker had the knife out before he had any contact with the victim. Its also a train — he knew exactly where that train was going and he knew what he was wearing.
Both parties screwed up. Tactically if the “victim” had simply not approached the guy it looks like he might still be alive today….April 1, 2009 at 11:14 am #74495
Re: Problems with Knife Disarmsquote Kirsten:
In a level 1 class, a wife working with her husband was having trouble with choke from the front. Hubby had a good strong grip and is a big dude. It was pointed out that she was not sending her leg for the kick very effectively. (Hubby was not wearing a cup… heh)

Re: Suggestion for a new guy with nowhere to train locally…
You could consider watching this forum and googling (thats a verb now…) Krav Maga schools within whatever you deem acceptable driving distance for seminars.
Most of the schools welcome anybody and everybody to the seminars. They are not all run quite as intensely as a standard Krav Maga class but it would expose you to the way Krav Maga is tought what is looked for and so on.
As far as the other tools you mentioned. Distance learning is what it is, you dont have the benefit of another person helping to fix things in your technique…
Good Luck and train hard!
