self defense

So for the past few years I have focused a lot on what to teach people who don't want to learn martial arts, how to defend themselves without the training and conditioning of a martial artist. Something simple and easy that works within the range of their movement that they do everyday. I enjoy what I teach because its flexible and the focus is on general principals rather then specific situations and technique. Unfortunately no matter how simple it is nothing beats good training. So this course really is to make people more aware and increase the odds of never being in the bad situation in the first place. And maybe just maybe help those people who have no idea about martial arts a chance to give it a go.  

As you all know I will be hitch hiking around New Zealand.

All this will be done through the magic of you tube and  weekly blogs on this site. IF you know of any groups who would be interested in having me please let me know!

Back in action

Hello people of the martial world
