0301 - Having the Guts to Cut the Cord

/
Life is full of struggles! Some are physical, some are intellectual, some are financial, some are emotional. The list of challenges we face goes on and on and what amazes me is how often we get in the way of solving our own problems. Right now I am realizing that I am in the midst of making some ridiculously painful decisions regarding my pickup truck. The process that I am going through reminds me of something that I often see my students struggle with in class. So, today we are going to talk about my 1995 Dodge and training.

0300 - Safety as a Concept In Training and in Life

/
Recently I stopped to look at the rules that were posted in our local YMCA swimming pool. There were a total of 14 rules listed one of which was, "No breath holding contests." It was really frustrating to read the rules that were trying to address very specific situations that were considered a danger and missing the big picture. There was no mention of "Swim within your ability," or any other rule that addressed safety as a concept. When we have rules like, "No breath holding contests," I always look for the rules that say, "Do not park your vehicles in the swimming pool," and "No chainsaws allowed in the hot tub." We can never address EVERY safety concern with a rule and we need to stop trying. When we attempt to cover it all specifically we will miss something, we will smother those we are trying to protect with minutia and we short circuit out goal of creating a safer environment.

0288 - Four Factors that Can Restrict Your Self-Defense Training

/
I know that based on the demographics of the folks that listen to this podcast that our community is filled with folks that train more than the general population when it comes to dealing with violence. I also know from personal experience that I don't train as much as I want to. I dare to say it, but I don't train as much as I should. Yes, I train a lot. Yes, I train more than most people. My training and competency level have nothing to do with anyone else. It isn't about comparisons, it is about continual improvement. I am seeking to improve continually and so, I need to step back every once in a while and analyze what it is that is holding me back from doing what I should do and more importantly what I NEED to do.

0285 - Three Important Lessons to Take From Sanford, FL

/
We don't know all the details regarding the shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida, and I don't expect that we ever will. At the same time, however, there are some lessons that can be taken from this situation that are based on the facts that are clear to us. It would be wrong to not take some time to look for the lessons in this situation and how we can apply these lessons to our own life to make sure that we don't find ourselves in a quagmire like we see being played out in the media.
