Two Weeks To Go

Today is the official two week left to go mark. In two weeks we fly out of New York arriving in Montreal Canada.

For the last six months I have put in long hours of training. I was blessed to be accepted under the tutelage of the best in the world. Sensei Jadi Tention has patiently, and I mean really patiently, helped me make the adjustments from the days of old to a new and modern application of the art that I learned from Grand Master Sam McGee. Sensei Jadi has reawakened my martial arts fire. Amazing brother. Amazing training concepts.

When I started training waaay back in 1976 the dominant fight game was one where opponents slowly stalked each other. At that time there was no movement. The game was slower with more of a one shot kill mentality. Now the game is fast and diverse.

If you are not training in multiple disciplines you are behind the times. BJJ, MMA, boxing, wrestling all play a part in developing your ability to defend yourself. That's not to say that you are going to become a pro at all of them. But they all play a roll. You will lean toward one or two disciplines but don't neglect the others.

I'm putting together  a small video package that I can take to chronicle the trip. We'll see how it comes together.
