    Travis, you funny mother FUCKER. ABSOLUTELY the best. If you open a church, let me know, I WOULD love a live performance every Sunday. Just keep doing what you do, and when you are making 50 million dollars a film I will be in the audience. Make me laugh always, as a FIREFIGHTER I work with many guys like you. And thanks for all the fighting tip. All good shut. Even the basic little stuff.

    Accurate demonstration of what happens when you first get your wind knocked out of you… or take a solid blow to the ribs, stomach or any other painful point on the body. It hurts way more than I thought it could even before you take into account the debilitating effects of being unable to breath or almost throwing up. Then it happened the first time and I collapsed on the floor literally like that. Thank God I was only sparring.

    Trav,

    I am 59 years of age and love your videos. You don’t send them often enough for me to tire of them…..which is nice. I also pass them on to my son and three sons in law. Keep up the great work.

    This is the first video I watched from this website so maybe you will address this in another video, but I have a question about the hands: if you let your fists hang infront of your face, wouldnt it be a risk that when blocking a punch you end up chewing on your own fist?

      You need to actively stop punches… your arms aren’t just noodley barriers! You STOP punches, make your hand a wall for a second. I’d also rather have a punch going through my hand to hit me, than to hit me directly!

    Good slow teaching of basic my son is 7 and has a good nature personality . The stories I here of how mean nature some kinds are. I fear that I send him out to play they will use him as the test subject for the ” let’s see what happens if”. He has 2 younger sisters that already he has a protective attitude. I am using these basics for him to learn to defend himself and sisters. I already got an apology letter written to him from a student which was forced by the teacher for spitting on him and elbowing him in class when he told the teacher what he did. That is not acceptable to me. Keep up the good work .

    Hi new to the site and I love it. I appreciate the free tutorials. I have questions? I am disabled due to lupus fybromialgia and rheumatoid arthritis. I’ve gone thru a tremendous whirlwind of change. From weighing 550lbs when first diagnosed and having diabetes as well as developing major depression anxiety and ptsd, I ve had to walk with a cane since 30 years old, now 37. I’ve almost overdosed on my medication several times and I look like I’m 50 years old due to deterioration obesity and overmedication.
    These last couple of years I have been doing my hardest to gain control of my life. I’m proud to say I’m down to 303 lbs. I take less meds. My diabetes is gone and ive managed to regain some control of my life. I still walk with a cane, I don’t think that will ever change due to the severity of my disease but I refuse to use a wheel. Chair or anything of the sort at this point. Ive rather deal with the pain.
    The reason I am reaching out is ive come to realization that disabled people such as myself are prime targets for people who like to taje advatage. In the last 2 year’s ive had guns pulled on me ive been sucker punched ive been jumped by multiple men and all for pocket change. When I was younger I was able to defend myself better but since this disease I haven’t felt like much of a fighter til I recently was mugged again because I was am easy target. I’m tired of this. I want to use your system amd techniques to better assist my situation……. Disabled people old people and people who are less able should not have to fear for their safety…
