    Are You Overtraining? (Here's how you can tell)

    How do you know if you're doing too much? Overtraining is a real phenomenon. It is possible to train so much that you break your body down instead of build it up. But most people never come close to “real” overtraining, which is pinpointed by physical breakdowns that are hard to ignore. This isn’t muscle soreness or having some bad days in the gym.

    Increase in resting heart rate and blood pressure
    Insomnia-like symptoms and trouble sleeping
    Stomach disturbances
    Consistent low energy and bad mood
    Changes in personality and mood
    Decreased self-esteem and motivation
    Feelings of sadness and apathy ....

  • Does It Matter Who You Train With?

    Does It Matter Who You Train With?

    Does it matter who you train with? At the end of the day when it comes down to surviving a violent encounter it doesn't, says chief Fit To Fight instructor Ryan Hoover. Nobody is going to show up and fight for you when you are getting a gun pointed at your head. That person doesn't care who you have trained with, what belt you hold or what certificate you have hanging on the wall. Your instructor is not going to be able to show up and fight your battles for you. It doesn't mean that the time was wasted and that there is no value in learning from the best but at the end of the day it's up to you. There are plenty of martial artists out there that train with high-level practitioners all the ....

  • 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 ....
