  • Dealing with Knife Violence

    Dealing with Knife Violence

    Anyone that has spent much time with me knows that I find knife attacks and threats the most frightening to deal with, and that we spend a lot of time looking to avoid them at all costs. However, if avoidance is not an option, there are a few things we believe everyone should know, about the weapon, the user, and the response. The Weapon Edged-weapons rarely fail. Blades do not run out of ammunition. Blades do not have a “line of fire”, as most of what is exposed is dangerous, and blades, once presented, are always live. Edged-weapons, unlike firearms, are often weapons of convenience, gleaned from the environment during a violent encounter, and are therefore more ....

    BR Krav Maga & Kickboxing is the best place to train if you are serious about adding kickboxing to your workout routine.

  • Why You Should Not Always Train From Bad Postions

    Why You Should Not Always Train From Bad Postions

    Far too many krav maga schools spend too much time training from the negative. Most krav maga facilities have made this type of training their bread and butter. While there is nothing wrong with training from the negative, and it should be done, it just shouldn't take up the bulk of your training. If you look online you will see krav maga practitioners training from ridiculous positions such as back mounted with a gun to the back of the head. If someone allowed themselves to get into a position like that the likelihood of them escaping is pretty slim. Our emphasis at BR Krav Maga along with the rest of the Fit To Fight Republic is to focus on not ending up in those really bad places. If you ....

  • Get Rid Of Your Fear Of Kale

    Get Rid Of Your Fear Of Kale

    Kale is one of the most super of superfoods out there loaded with antioxidants and vitamins. It can even help lower cholesterol and prevent cancer. The benefits of eating kale are endless, but that's not what this article is about. The article is about getting more people to start regularly adding kale into their diet, but for some reason, everyone seems to frown upon it?? Maybe it's because not long ago kale was thought to be just a garnish. I was actually told as a kid that it was not edible! So does this have something to do with why so many people are still not excepting this magnificent gift from the earth as a normal staple to their diet? Let's discuss the taste. When I ....
