Stripping the good from the bad. I first learned that principle not from karate but in my old career when I was training as a graphic designer. I was the kind that my first idea was my best idea. But what they said, I’ve got make a whole lot of doodle, 30, 40, 50 designs. Only when you do that, you can split them into good and bad.
Sensei Joe worked as a nightclub doorman and various security jobs for over 10 years, gaining experience in violence prevention, violence management, de-escalation, communication, and social psychology. He used this expertise to help teach his students how to watch for signs of violence and how to avoid or manage the situation. It is also during this time that Joe realized what does and does NOT work in combative martial arts!
