Great seminar with the team.
Excited about having Nicolas Saignac coming in for out 2nd annual Savate seminar with him. More pics and videos tomorrow.
Can’t wait for our Savate seminar this Saturday with professor Nicolas. This is our 2nd year to host him and the competition team can’t wait either. Any trick in the book to help them to an easier win, they’re all for. Many will be testing for their next Savate rank. Should make for an interesting weekend.
Starting new Shillelagh “Irish Blackthorn Canes” fighting class through Zoom/FaceTime. The Doyle family has its own version of shillelagh combat that uses the cane as a walking stick or a 3 foot weapon. For information on the class or to order an Irish Blackthorn Shilleligh from our maker in Ireland, contact me. They’re really pretty and are one of the hardest woods for combat.
As of today, we’ll start enrolling people for our Savate seminar on May the 14th. Spaces are limited to 20. First come first served. 😉 Good luck and may the odds be ever in your favor. LOL
Jerry Poteet, this guy changed my whole way of looking at the martial arts. He was one of Bruce Lee’s original students and woke me up from where I was at in traditional martial arts. If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
Gonna be a busy year. Competitions for kata, kickboxing, grappling, demos, seminars for Savate, PKA style karate, Ju Jitsu, Kali/Escrima/Arnis, and a ton more. Lots of traveling this year.
The kids trying out how they’ll look as black belts. 😎
Getting ready for our 2022 seminars coming up. Savate, Combat Submission Wrestling, Kickboxing, Silat, Kali, Wing Chun, and many more. As well as our new Girls Competition/Demo team, tournament schedule. Gonna be a busy year.
Started filming a new video series on combat shillelagh fighting. I was thinking about doing a non combative shillelagh series but realized I’d just have someone filming me walking around with a big stick as a cane. My grandfather had a big cane in his closet that just looked like an ugly assed stick. It was a blackthorn shillelagh he’d been given by his grandfather. I have no idea where that old cane is today, probably thrown away after he died, but today I still use many of those same techniques he showed me, today as I fight with various weapons or teach my classes.

Washington State passes 'assault weapons' sales ban

For my friends in Washington, if you don’t have what you need already, you better hurry. Stock up now while you can.

Washington State passes 'assault weapons' sales ban Washington State will likely join nine other states in banning the sale of AR-15 rifles, as well as other “assault weapons."

Adding to the vegetables that survived the winter and the seeds I kept and planted. Onions, celery, romaine lettuce, poblano peppers, red bell peppers, egg plants...never eaten an eggplant but they look peppers, different types of tomatoes, and spinach.
About $3 per plant at Home Depot will produce salads for until about December here in Houston. This year I’m getting a 55 gallon plastic trash can for Egyptian tilapia and turn the hydroponic vertically garden into an aquaponic garden. Plenty of fish and vegetables to last till next year. Don’t have to worry about vaccinated food supplies if I’m growing my own.


Everywhere you look there are dolphins wanting to play. They want to race...they want to watch you fish and eat your catch...they want to screw with your lines. They’re a real problem sometimes. But SOMETIMES if you play your music loud, they’ll dance for you.

Some kids competing in MMA. Always fun to watch.


The master. Carlos Machado. What an amazing man. I met him in the mid to late 1990’s and have seen nothing but a funny professional from day 1. If you’ve ever got a chance to train with him, take it.


The team with bill “Superfoot” Wallace.

Our adult Superfoot teams 1st competition of 2023. Although Jeff doesn’t have a medal, he got his 1st knockout during a competition. 😉


Normally we find kids don’t quit. Parents quit. It’s too long of a drive. I’m too tired. I just want to watch tv after a hard day at work and a long drive home. It’s an extra 15 minutes there, 60 minutes of class and 15 minutes home. It’s just too much for the parent. 🙁


Bill "Superfoot" Wallace will be teaching at our location in the Cypress area on Saturday, August. 28th. For more information, call me at 281-236-5676. Always a fun time training with the man who's kick were clocked at over 60 MPH.

Ground to Standing

This video took about 10 hours to fully film, edit, put together and post on YouTube. Mostly because YouTube took forever. Normally its about the same time to post a video as the video is long. 10 minutes takes about 10 or 15 minutes. I guess because everyone is stuck at home right now, they're all online and clogging up the internet.

These little video clips take about an hour to film, refilm, edit, put together, and post on YouTube. I'll be happy when we get back to regular classes again. ;)

Everyone stay safe. I don’t think this virus is going to be as bad as everyone believes, but, better safe than sorry. I would hate to lose someone I know and care about because a person in another country wanted to eat at bat.

MMA BUG 03/06/2019


We just added a new page to our NorthAmericanSelfDefense website, for our MMA BUG. By tomorrow, or so the site builder says, you'll be able to click on MMA and it'll take you to our site. It'll be fun adding pics on this page. ;)
If you haven't had a chance to go to our page, have a look and tell us what you think.



If you’re a martial arts instructor and want to take your business up several notches, you should really consider Rondy McKee’s training seminar the last weekend of March in Cary, NC. Check out her White Tiger TKD page. She owns the largest martial art school in the world. The ideas for gaining and keeping students are amazing.


Gotta say...Texas has always produced a lot of great martial arts fighters. From back in the early days of our Blood and Guts Karate days to 2019. It's always fun to see the next generation coming up through the ranks. Who was your favorite Texas fighter?


I don't get on this page NEAR enough. My NY resolution is to have more of a business FB impact here.


Great 4th quarter weapons gathering for 2018. Lots of cool viceos I'll post links to.


I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving this year. Now we get ready for Christmas.
The month of December, unfortunately, sees a rise in crimes. I’m sure everyone has probably noticed this already. We’re going to offer a free female self protection class every Wednesday through the end of the year to hopefully give people some options and things to watch out for.
Take a look at our website and see what we’re offering.


Erik Paulson seminar in 2 weeks. Going to be a great seminar. Can’t wait.


Take a moment and look through our website. We're constantly putting up new martial art videos on kickboxing, karate, Muay Thai, Savate, Kali, Silat, Wing Chun, Ju Jitsu, Submission grappling, and more. Let me know what you think.

Also make sure you check out for Kathy Long's association. Great stuff there too. You'll love it.


We’re gearing up for our 2018 CSW seminar with Erik Paulson. Always a great seminar. October 6th. The NASDI students have a busy month ahead. Revgear University the 2nd weekend of August, the USA Martial Arts Hall
Of Fame the following weekend, seminars to teach, competitions, etc. Come play with us, there’s always something fun happening.
