0229 - Avoiding Civil Unrest

/
We are all going to die. I guess it sucks, but either way it is fact. Also fact is that I don't want to die by being beaten to death by a feces throwing, explosive launching dirt bag in the middle of some protest that he doesn't even know what is about. Mobs are bad news. I don't like bad news, so I work to avoid civil unrest.

0223 - Less Training = Less Competence

/
When the chips are down, we need to be ready. The last thing we want to do in a violent encounter is to put more on our plate. Think for a moment about what is involved in dominating a violent encounter. You must recognize the situation for what it is, decide what you are going to do about it, do it, reevaluate and repeat. All of those steps take time and time is something you have very little of in violence. Don't add to the list. Train so that you are ready to dominate when life deals you a rotten hand. Train to avoid incompetence.

0221 - An Interview With Dave Spaulding

I love to learn as much as I love to teach, probably even more. The great thing about learning is that each teacher you have has new lessons to teach you or new ways to learn the lessons you have seen before. Today we talk with Dave Spaulding and for most of you he will probably do a bit of both. Teaching some new and improving on what you already know. Grab some paper, prepare to rewind and re-listen. This stuff is good!

In today's Friday Film we take a look at a bar fight where two mutual combatants are involved in a confrontation. Although I do not believe this is a self-defense encounter, I do think there are lessons to be learned. Take a look and see what you think.

Oakland Bus Fight Video I'm not a lawyer so don't take any of today's odcast as legal advice. It is simply my opinion. If you have specific legal questions you need to consult an attorney. David Arnold is an atorney, you will find him at The Warrior Summit.
