What difference does it make?

Image
Hillary Clinton famously said, "What difference at this point does it make?"
This was during the Benghazi congressional hearings where she left 4 Americans to die at the hands of terrorists that she was in bed with.
So what is the difference between online and offline (dojo) training?
The obvious difference is that dojo training you get hands one training for a certain amount of time per week or so.
Online training, is really online education that can be used to help you train when you get together with a partner or group of like minded people who are looking to supplement their dojo training with more focused educational material that after studying, they can go back to class and practice "installing" the info into their minds and bodys.
Online training is a supplement to regular classes, or what you do not have time for during regular class time where the focus is on the physical gross motor movements and then those are refined over time.

This is what I have strived …

I don't care how many....

I don't care how many points you know.  I really don't.

There are some great martial talkers out there who can amaze you with their knowledge of the body, the points, the names, the colors, the sounds, and which wine goes best with each technique.

There are some great martial artists out there that can make just about anything work...and have not much of a clue as to why.

Then there are those martial arts INSTRUCTORS who can not only teach you the physical, but the other aspects as well....now when I say the other aspects...I am only including things that can be used in a real confrontation.  For those who wish to talk about the colors and the time of day, etc....just move on as you do not have time to figure out which phase the moon is in while attempting to stop someone from taking your head off.

So again...back to the start of this post.

You can know a ton of things...and not be able to do anything with them.

When I started...there was a group of guys who could tell you ev…

Hey!...Its on sale!!

Image
We all like something on sale!  Who doesn't?

What is more important...the price or the VALUE?

Price is something we pay for a product or service.

VALUE is what we get, or more importantly...the perception of what we get for a given price.

We all have different perceptions of value.  Price is price...nothing to perceive here...just the exchange for pieces of paper with famous dead people on them.

For me personally...price is secondary to the VALUE I will get if I decide to purchase that product or service.

So here is my question for you today...What drives your purchase of things...price or VALUE?  Only you can answer that.

When will I...?

If your Kyusho Training feels like a giant

...then maybe you are in the wrong program.
The question I have for you today is, Even though we know there is a learning process...do you just feel jerked around without any real focus, without any real attainable skills that can be learned easily and implemented quickly?...if the answer is yes...maybe it is time to find a new path where you can actually attain the skills promised.

Until next time KO your obstacles by keeping it simple, keeping it safe, and train with PinPoint™ accuracy.

Columbus Sailed the....

Supposedly Christopher Columbus, a Portuguese National, living in Genoa, Italy, hired by the Spanish Queen Isabella discovered America.

Not so fast!

1. There were people already living there.
2. He never set foot on the continent of North America...that we know of.
3. The Knights Templar (or Poor Knights of Christ (Portugal) were in NA dating back to the late 1200's
4. He supposedly was looking for a new route to India...hence...calling the natives he walked in on...Indians.

These are all generalizations, but I think you get the gist of this.

Not much new is discovered as you can see from the above.

Methodology and execution are where differences are made.

With regards to Kyusho training...there are many really good teachers out there.

What sets them apart?

Are they just regurgitation what someone else taught them or have they really put together something comprehensive that can is easy to learn and quickly implemented? 

Are they adding a whole bunch of things to take your focu…

Coco Puffs

Growing up there were so many cereals that were the worst things to eat...but they had great marketing!

They were nothing more than a sugary coating wrapped in more sugary BS, but hey...there was a prize in the box for subjecting ourselves to this dietary abuse:-)

The same is true today of education and online courses.

There are many quality online courses out there.  Some have a great combination of great marketing and equally great content.  Others...well...they have really good marketing.  Did I say that they have really good marketing?

On the surface cereals like Coco Puffs, Captain Crunch, Frankenberry, Boo Berry, etc. were a collection of sugary garbage that did nothing for you...but your dentist was extremely busy!

When looking at online programs...one must look to see is the content is relevant and that there is a comprehensive long term educational strategy..or else what good is it?

Sadly...most programs do not have a long term strategy...they are just looking for a short te…
