Hosting a seminar
There are three ways we could do this

First, the owner of the venue/sponsor gets four 'free' slots ($500 value) and everyone else signs up with me via PayPal. I advertise it and people from the outside show up. I cover my own travel expenses. (zero risk, zero profit for the venue owner)

Second, owner covers my travel expenses, we both advertise and we split the profits. (I have over 5000 connections, plus whatever network/student base the owner has), both insiders and outsiders sign up with the venue owner and we divvy up Sunday night.

Third, closed session. Only authorized people. Travel expenses and flat fee.


You're good. I'll make you better.

I am not a martial artist, I am a martial analyst. Some call me a 'martial mechanic' That works too.

I'm not going to teach you what I do. I'm going to help you fix what you do. What I will do is make you sit down and think about what you know.

I do this in one of two ways. First is to find lost components that destroy your technique's power chain (the reason this move doesn't work is right here something is missing that allows him to resist).

Second is finding unconscious, habitual and extra movement that is being added. Extra movement isn't effective; it weakens your move, wastes time and leaves you exposed to injury.

My goal is to get you to move and act effectively. Because effectiveness not only is the height of the martial arts, but what will keep you alive in a violent encounter.

I will also introduce you to the factors that you must consider before you even try to apply what you know in a 'self-defense' situation. Issues such as legal considerations, "planning for success," social and moral issues about violence and adrenal stress factors that must be considered.

And that -- more than any killer commando fighting system -- will keep you alive and out of prison if you ever need to use your training in a situation.
