Giving & Receiving

I don't know about you, but this time of year is both cool and crazy! I'm taking a breather from getting ready for Christmas while I write you a quick note. Yesterday was a s#*t show thanks to my (now former) health insurance agent who totally dropped the ball on my insurance and left me in a really precarious position to figure things out for myself.  For Christmas I'd send you (former insurance agent) a coupon for a FREE Krav Lesson, but I'll let Life take care of that for you.  You reap what you sow brother...  ...Be careful what your sowing!! Anyway, after spending the entire day scrambling to figure things out... Talking to multiple insurance companies, faxing, figuring and basically driving blind, I (think) I got things squared away.  I'd REALLY love to let the cat out of the bag as to who this ' delta bravo' insurance agent is...but I won't... I will, however tell you who stepped in to help.... I wan

Why We Are So Cruel?

    I just got back from training with Jack Hoban out in New Jersey. It was a good trip. I drove this time around, so I was glad to have those snow tires! Weather was a bit sketchy on the way out, but cleared up by the time I got into Pennsylvania.  Another year coming to a close, but... It looks like 2018 is going to be OFF THE HOOK w/some really exciting things  over the horizon! Just like last weeks Krav Maga Security & Escort Tactics Seminar, there's more LIVE workshops on the way for the New Year! (...But, don't worry if you missed the seminar, you can access the 5 Part Video Training Series for FREE Here on !*) So, with the Holiday Season upon us, we often think about spending time with loved ones, reconnecting with people we haven't seen in a while, giving to charities, etc. You know the "Goodwill Towards All" type of sentiment. That got me thinking about the other side of human nature. The side

There's No Shortage of Violence

  Training at Caliber 3 Counter Terrorism / Security Academy in  Efrat, Israel There is no shortage of violence in the world... . I've been in Israel for over two weeks now and there have been several incidents of violence in the US. The first major event was the Texas Church Shooting on Nov. 5th and then another incident in California less than two weeks later. . Yesterday I was here in Israel driving to Caliber 3, a counter terrorism & security facility to train for the day. When we got there one of the instructors was late due to a traffic delay. . Why? . Because there was a terrorist attack near our location which caused the traffic to be backed up. . Our main instructor Etan Cohen who is still active in an elite counter terrorism unit of the IDF already received the report of what occurred. . Apparently a terrorist coming from one of the Arab villages took his car and tried to run over numerous peop

Mindset & Beliefs for Success

  Etan Cohen - IDF Counter Terrorism Unit / Caliber 3 Combat Instructor Efrat, Israel I had to have a little patience today. Coffee shop was busy and I couldn't find a seat. Everyone must be out on this beautiful, brisk morning! Oh the troubles I have... And then my mind wanders back to Israel and the real world outside of this warm, cozy place I frequent so often. I catch myself reflecting on a discussion while training in Israel at Caliber 3. The discussion was about... . Training, Tactics & Beliefs During one of the training sessions at Caliber 3 the instructors (Etan, Boaz and Col. Sharon Gat) were talking about what makes a soldier good? What makes him really effective? Now you may not be a solider, however, you can replace the word 'soldier' with leader, protector, manager, parent, employee, officer, teacher, etc. etc. Anyway, back to the question: "What really makes a soldier good?"
