Karate by Jesse FIRST USA Seminar Video

Hey guys!

Couple weeks ago, I got the pleasure to attend and hang out with Jesse Enkamp. If you don't know who he is check out his website karatebyjesse.com and read up on him. He is a fantastic martial artist with amazing knowledge. Anyways I got to take photos for the event, and he asked me to put together a Greatest Hits video since this was his very first seminar in the United States. Check it out, and hope it will inspire you to some day train with him! 

Thanks!

Unarmed Combative Training as a "Prep"

Hello everyone,

My latest article is actually a bit of an older one, which I originally wrote for a disaster preparedness publication, discussing the idea of martial arts training as a component of disaster preparedness. It was written with "preppers" in mind, rather than martial artists, but it may still interest both.

Tell EVERYONE You Know KARATE

Telling everyone... probably one of the biggest mistakes you can do. In this article I reveal some statistics about the dangers of those who carry a gun to those that do not and are involved in a shooting event. This relates to how we present ourselves in a fight, or to those that know us. The opportunity and advantage of surprise can be one of our biggest friends.
