Q:  Why do you guys train so hard?

A:  Because we prepare you for the rigors of the streets and because our lives and the lives of those we

love depend on it.  

Fights are explosive, chaotic, painful, unpredictable, exhausting and could be fatal.  When you are in

a fight, you are fighting for your life.  You can’t simply quit because you are tired or sore. 

In a real fight there is a good chance that you are going to get punched, kicked and choked and if your

attacker has a knife, you will probably get a cut or two.  If you have never been punched, kicked,

thrown on the ground or choked, the shock of the moment can be extremely overwhelming and will

cause you to hesitate as you and your body recovers from the initial shock of  ‘what just happened ?’ 

 How can you fight hard if you never train hard?

In a fight, time is against you.  You do not have the luxury of time to think about your options.  Your

actions must be immediate and the only way to make them that way is to prepare both your body and

your mind for the realities of a fight.  You do this through training so your body gets use to being

punched, kicked, thrown to the ground and even choked.

Like I mentioned, fights are very demanding and exhausting.  You must have enough strength and

endurance to fight off an attack,  whether it be one or more attackers.  You may even have to run a

distance before you have to fight because you heard one of your children  or your wife screaming.

What good would you be to that person if you ran across a parking lot or field but was so exhausted

from the run that you could not fight off the attacker and help the person.   We have had many

runners tell us that ‘Running is easy compared to having to actually fight.’

We want students to understand that fighting on an open mat with no obstacles scattered around

requires one set of skills, but having to fight multiple attackers in extreme close quarters with tables,

chairs, cars and other items requires another, and having to fight on ground or in the snow and rain

requires yet another another set of skills.
