|The term "martial arts" - specifically weaponless - can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. In this 2-part podcast, I would like to give an outline of what aspects of hand-to-hand combat are most important to me. What it generally boils down to is a matter of utmost simplicity so that we don't over-saturate the body and mind with so many techniques that we don't really know how to respond under the pressure and adrenaline of a real physical threat.|
|In part one, I outline areas of fighting that I feel are simple to learn both mentally as well as physically - as we ingrain techniques into our muscle memory in order to make it as instinctive as possible. This includes aspects of martial arts like Western Boxing, Muay Thai, Wrestling, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and a general mixed martial arts street fighting attitude. The key in all movement and fight attitude is simplicity. I would much rather see students practice one simple move 10,000 times than practice 10,000 different moves one time.A few highlights of the podcast to listen for:
