One-Handed Silat, Training Injured

So you got hurt, how are you going to use it as a training and possibly life boost, rather than a hinderance? Injuries suck, whether they are severe or just bumps and bruises, they are an easy excuse to slack. The voice in your head saying, “just sit on the couch, it’s fine” seems to…

Raven Talk Interview

An interview I did with Raven Talk / Fernan Vargas. It gives some of the background of my martial arts training and in particular why I found a home in Pencak Silat and the purpose and value of developing Pencak Silat Pertempuran. You can listen to the interview here!

Notes for the Street-Offense Workshop

Keys to success in Street Offense: Observation, Readiness, and Action. Each key can be broken up even further. This is a conversation. This is not about absolute solutions.

Preparedness is not a moment in time. Being. Prepared. Is a current state of living. It requires attendance. It requires study. It requires training. It requires practice. And it requires testing. (See previous blog post.) It doesn’t just happen.

How To Learn

This is the process to understanding anything. Of course, in this case I’m focusing on pencak silat. Study. Train. Practice. Test. Repeat. Study: Listen, watch, and feel what your guide has to offer. If that guide is a hands on teacher. Great. If that guide is a static teacher such as a video. Great. (You’ll…

How To Fight Summarized

This was written to a student a while back who was struggling in his exploration of his own abilities. There are no secrets here, just basic info, but if you’ve never put words to the basic info that you, or your teacher just do, perhaps this is a good starting point. It’s very unlikely this…
