As a corrections officer, I am often thrust into sudden violent situations. On one particular occasion, I responded to an incident between two inmates. One was brushing his teeth. The other came up behind him and struck him on the right side of his head. The tooth brusher tried to turn but was pressed into [...]

YOU & THE REALITY OF “KNIFE-FIGHTING” IN CANADA. Article by Noah Walt

2016-11-15T05:01:17+00:00

Do you carry a folding or fixed blade knife for self defence? If so, proceed with caution. For your chain of defence is as strong as the weakest link. Self defense is partly about fray & partly about the aftermath. The knife is considered deadly force. Oh yes! Do not fantasize about the courts making [...]

Reaction Time 101

2016-11-15T05:01:17+00:00

The faster we can counter attack, the safer we become. This very basic knowledge is in essence the core of every reality based system. Everyone system is trying to shorten the reaction gap. Two major principals are applied to explain how this works and why we do it. The first is the OODA loop that [...]

Lets Talk Adrenaline

2014-02-20T04:03:34+00:00

“Adrenaline Dump” is one of the most thrown around terms used in reality based self defense. It seems to be the go-to that people use when they want to poke holes in other systems. I, as an RBSD instructor, don’t agree entirely with this blanket term so I figured… Let’s talk adrenaline. Let’s start at [...]

The Backyard Complex

2014-02-20T04:01:18+00:00

It is not what you train it is how you train it

2016-11-15T05:01:18+00:00

We have all heard the saying never talk religion or politics in polite company, well to that statement we need to add a third option: martial arts. There are somethings that people get so rooted in, it is better to just walk away than engage. As a life long martial artist I have been having [...]
