A First for February First

Check out this month’s issue of Black Belt Magazine for an article by little ol’ me. It’s a piece on non-combat benefits of self-defense training.

Basically, we martial artists spend hours learning to defend ourselves against a human attacker despite the fact that assault and homicide are incredibly rare in the developed world.

Fortunately, martial arts training gives us tools to fight the real killers. Falling skills and situational awareness help us avoid accidents. Staying in shape and stress reduction reduce our chances of contracting heart disease and some kinds of cancer.

That’s the synopsis. Go find an issue if it sounds interesting. This is my first appearance in an internationally distributed glossy magazine, so yay!
