Here’s MMA with a difference,Paul vunak is a no bullshit martial artist,i really like his WAY cos it’s how i see and train my martial arts….for REALITY!! Like he says in the clip when you know what you are capable of doing and how violent you can be,it gives you so much confidence that it humbles you inside.
Someone who is a real martial artists doesn’t walk around with an ego and brags about being a fighter etc..”we walk around quietly,but carry a big stick!! Walk around peacefully and defend when i have to.There are alot of different perceptions of martial arts now,You either train Martial sports or Martial arts….I train Martial arts.


Check this fight out that erupts in the wanderlei silva’s change room,two guys go at it in a real life fight.Now thats what i call MMA, Though no eye gouging,weapons.or biting was involved it is real MMA.NO RULES NO REFEREE.

REAL JIU JITSU!!!…96.7596.0.8708.…0.0.TwMosseqkj8%26has_verified%3D1&has_verified=1

All martial arts are limited by rules which gives the practitioners a false sense of security.Out on the street if you have to fight for your life there are NO referees and NO rules apply.A street fight is not what you want it to be or expect it to be…it just is!


There are many people now that think martial arts is all just about hitting and fighting,these kind of people ruin the real meaning of martial arts.When people say or hear the word martial arts they automatically think of the UFC or MMA and forget that it is truly an art to understand any style,it is about being in tune with your body and how it works,spirituality,finding yourself through training.It is easy to learn how to hit someone..anyone can hit another person,but people lack the understanding of the art involved,Personally i think a real martial artist doesnt need to fight (unless in competition),when provoked or in a real life self defence situation is able to unleash,and another point is martial was never originally invented for sports,even though i have competed many times and am over all the points and rules system now,i think martial arts is taking a big turn now and pulling away from its original intentions(self defence)!!!


Here is another core secret of mine i am showing.It is another thing i relentlessy work on.I upgraded to this from the ab wheel and found this much more challenging and an awsome core strengthener.I do warn you that this is not for those who have weak core as it puts extreme strain on your back and shoulders and can cause serious injury if not done correctly.As you are suspended of the ground while on a pulley system which requires maximum effort to stabilize and use your whole core.Looks easy right?? I still havent seen anyone in the gym who is able to do this!!If you think you have a strong core come and try one of my core workouts and see if you can outlast me,and IF you can i will give you 3 MONTHS FREE TRAINING!!! This is just an example though and i usually do 3min rounds with 15 or 30 sec intervals and changing to different exercises on each change. I am still yet to master a full crucifix…but I WILL!


I always new martial arts started from animal behaviour,check this bear out,its amazing at whet it does.


its scary and sad to think about what the next generation of martial artists will be like? People watch the UFC and think that its cool to choke People out,not knowing the seriousness of the technique. To the uneducated mind in martial arts,especially Brazilian jiu jitsu it takes years of practice to know the correct application and the feel of the technique,these days people dont even know what MMA or BJJ means!!That is why i do not accept people that come to me and say” I wanna learn how to choke people out” and when given the question “WHY??” they dont have an answer apart from”cos its sick!”. I have choked many people out especially in a real life sitiuation cos of the industry i work in and also cos of the physical threat i am under in a confrontation,But i am in full control and know exactly how much pressure i am using and when the person is out cold. Many people want to learn martial arts for the wrong reasons…cos they watch the UFC now.To me martial arts goes deep into my soul and i never learnt it to just choke people out,it is an art form which requires a life long commitment and even further goes into spirituality.Even now i still highly respect the bow which is fading away,to me a bow isnt forced it naturally given out honest and true respect to your coach,instructor or as a matter of fact to anyone you have deep respect for.So if your thinking about starting BJJ or any martial art,ask yourself “WHY”.

Taking Deano through some padwork and getting ready for his fight next week….looking sharp!!
