    You might also just ask around and see if anyone wants to train. As the last year of quarantine has shown me, 12 months of garage work with a blue belt is still a lot better than no training at all.

    BJJ has honestly changed my views on aging. I never had older men who were still fit as role models before. My image of a dude in his mid-forties has a beer gut and can maybe still hit a 3-pointer or...

    I started reading about self defense online just because I was a nerd and it sounded interesting. This lead to buying a gun, getting my CCW, reading more... and realizing I still knew practically...

    So very true, Cecil, and grips are by far my biggest challenge in grappling. Somehow the hips come easier!

    Good article.

    Huh, I will have to start digging for them. Do you remember the specific names of the dvds?

    Thanks. Maybe I'll have some luck. I've found some amazing old russian videos on youtube.

    Wrestling Setup Instructionals

    I've been training BJJ a few years and my standup is crap. I'm also stuck training at home with one friend (whose wrestling is worse), so I'm scouring online learning material.

    Does anyone have...

    I'm not a real excel power user, but for a lot of of the work I have done in it I actually prefer Google Sheets. Every time I dig into pivot tables and analysis I find one feature I like better in...

    To teach that this is the only way the US is viewed abroad would absolutely be false. However, it is something a significant number of people outside the US believe (as can easily be proved by the...

    The officer's behavior makes a little more sense if they thought but weren't sure if Blake had a knife/would use it. The one officer ineffectively tugging on his t-shirt seemed like a very...

    I think it's all how local it is, which really boils down to how much you have the consent of the people you're protecting. The people of Kenosha decided to defend themselves with a police force. You...

    I'll share the few sources I found.

    The tl;dr is that there are no good studies on prevalence in the sport, and strokes from vascular dissection occurs in all kinds of sports. I even found case...

    I'd rather get choked than tased or beaten by a nightstick.

    But I'd also rather not get yanked to the ground by my neck by someone who half remembers their academy training. I did a deep dive on...

    Obviously not the most advanced guy here (4-stripe blue belt reporting in!) but from my study half guard has a lot of use in a defensive context, but some modifications are necessary from a lot of...

    IMO, the protestors are lumping a some legitimate concerns in with a few high profile bad incidents and a ton of ignorance.

    Should we be trying to do something about how many black or poor people...

    That all makes sense, and I appreciate the honest replies. It is a challenge to figure out the appropriate response when the police are simultaneously the target of the protest and charged with...
  17. Question on officer's kneeling

    If ya'll don't mind -- I noticed that the reaction to officer's kneeling with protestors recently has been receiving a very different reaction from the officers here than it has from my general...

    You know, I'm still undecided on this line of thinking. The US WWII monument didn't go up until 60 years after the war. I know in the case of a lot of local monuments to more recent wars, it wasn't...

    So I get "complying with lawful orders" and all that, but that's going to be a hard sell to a lot of people when all she's doing is standing on her porch 50 ft away with her phone. I pretty much...

    Thanks, Cecil.

    My instructor catches me in this position fairly often (usually leading to that kimura because I'm an idiot and don't get my arms back in fast enough), and it is completely...

    Just curious, Cecil, if you are carrying on your right hip, what is your early prevention to keep them accessing your firearm? Does getting your hips enough toward their head negate their ability to...

    I mean, barstool lawyering here, but while both threaten death or grievous bodily injury, some states have added explicit felony escalations for strangling. These are generally aimed at domestic...

    For what it's worth, I agree with you 100%. I love leg attacks, love the Danaher-style system of "leg entanglements as control" the same way as the rest of Jiu Jitsu -- but I will admit that I am...

    I was just about to ask about the leg game. The metagame for no-gi has gone heavily in that direction recently, and it has been shown to be effective in MMA, at least. But when the guy can pull out a...

    The best way to use this is to set up a better guard pull. ;-)

    Seriously, though, it is amazing how powerful this move is. One of the guys I train with comes from a Wrestling/Judo/Japanese Jiu...
