The Shocking Truth About Stun Guns

Thankfully the only damage was to my ego cause I totally wimped out in front of my buddies who were there.

The Fallacy and the Myth

How to Relax During a Fight


I received a returned video from a well meaning, but severely misguided, former customer. This is a rarity since over the past 2 plus years and hundreds upon hundreds of videos shipped; I can only count 3 returns.

Sensing Intention


One of the 'mystical' aspects of the martial arts has always been the ability to feel another persons intention.Sensing intention gives a person the ability to be in instant control of a potentially violent encounter, and it's one of the ways we use the martial arts to test our energy work and meditation skills in Hoshin.
