As a matter of fact, I'm feeling a bit derailed myself lately!

The Fog of War

Burn Baby Burn! A lot of my time has been spent putting out fires that not only needed to be addressed... As it turns out these fires have been the catalyst for some clarity and big growth for 2019 and beyond! So, all I can say is Burn Baby Burn! Although I may be a little crispy right now... Like the Phoenix I will be Reborn!!   The Fog of War... The holiday season can feel a lot like a war... The hustle & bustle with home life, work, kids, spouses, presents, parties, in-laws, friends, money, travel... The expectations of the holidays can be pretty overwhelming. It can be difficult to stay on track and actually ENJOY the season with your loved ones! So, take a breath, slow down & prioritize! Strip away those things that aren't necessary. Some of those things that you do you're doing because of some unhealthy sense of obligation. It's time to re-prioritize what is really important. Your kids... IMPORTANT!

It's NOT a Game for Us!

When It's Not a Game... If you want your training to be sustainable for the long haul of your Life... It's difficult finding balance between smart, serious, yet lighthearted training. Serious enough to get the job done; lighthearted enough not wreck your body, brain or heart.   You want it to be enjoyable enough so that you'll want to do it on a regular basis.

When you are training to prepare yourself for the situations you're likely to run into today... your approach has to be well rounded, so you can deal with everything from verbal disputes to physical violence. Kind of Like Church? What?! Yeah... Many people go to church 1x per week, but wouldn't say that church is a "HOBBY' right? Well the same w/Protector training! You may only go to your Krav Maga training a few times per week, but it's not a hobby... Not a game... Yes, you go to broaden and deepe

Resistance Training

What comes to mind when most people think of "Resistance Training?" Well, most, think of weight training. Weight training is one way we use resistance to tear down our muscles so that when they heal they develop into bigger stronger muscles! In Krav Maga we train ourselves for a different type of resistance. This resistance is more dynamic involving physical, mental, emotional and social   elements that are 'torn down' to be built on, developed and strengthened. The same goes for our training in dealing with other forms of resistance. Like verbal conflict. Learning how to deal with all of these forms of resistance is important for living a Protectors Life. AND... It's not just in that you "Learn" about it. It's also that you Condition yourself for it! You can "learn" about swimming, but you'll have to actually swim in order to get better at it! You can "learn" about working out, bu
