Elbow Strike Mechanics With Coach Blauer

In his latest video, Coach Blauer breaks down some of the mechanics and drills we use to teach the elbow strike in the PDR program.

Sudden Self-Defense Vs. Martial Contest

Understanding the difference between sudden self-defense and martial contest.

You get a call. A close friend is taking off to travel the world – solo. He or she has agreed that self-defense is a vital skill and is willing to learn. You’re excited to share with them all you’ve learned as a (name your style/system/art). You’ve been training for years and have a wealth of knowledge. It’s Friday night, your weekend is clear. “Ok great, let’s start this weekend and we can train every weekend until you leave, when is that?”

“Sunday, this Sunday. What can you show me in a day“, replies your friend.

 

How might you answer this question? Think about it, and check out Coach Blauer’s recent blog for his thoughts on the subject, plus a powerful news story you don’t want to miss out on.
