This was a pleasant surprise! Ferdinand Terado picked up a few of our hawks and I was really amazed with this video he produced. Great application of FMA techniques to a frontier weapon designed by Col. Dwight McLemore and made by Tim Ridge of Swamp Fox knives. Dwight is a good friend and when he produced the Fighting Tomahawk video with Paladin Press, we made trainers to mimic the live hawk. Ferd is a certified Guro in the Pekiti-Tirsia Kali System and leads the PTK-SMF Peninsula affiliate group. He has many great videos so don't stop watching after this one!

I couldn't wait to go outside and play...

New TAK Impactor Training Gun- You NEED this!

April 27, 2016

How do you train with a gun? There is more than 1 correct answer. Just like when training with any Martial Art, you go easy sometimes to "get the movement down". Then when you and your partner get in the rhythm, you pick it up some. Maybe you get to 50 % and pop each other a little. Cool! Of course, you could go for the max and sport fight. Maybe ring your opponent's bell on the way to winning. Gun training has it phases also. Training at the range: nice and easy, breathe out, squeeze slooowly- BANG. OK, that's fun. But is it practical? Yes- to a point. It is important to be able to accurately shoot. So now you're...
