Tukido - Clouds

This Blog article briefly reviews and assesses a very rare old book called ‘Clouds’ written by Tukido Grandmaster The in the late 1980’s. I brought this book off another Tukido instructor in 2013 and have read it a number of times from start to finish. This book is a valuable asset and like another Black Belt which deserves to be on the shelf of any serious martial artist or fitness / sports coach / personal trainer exponent.

John Boyd's OODA Loop For Self Defence

The second premium model covered under evaluation and awareness is the OODA Loop. The OODA Loop is an acronym used to describe the process that we use when responding to some type of stimulus, and was formulated by Col John Boyd in the 1950’s. Boyd was a fighter pilot in the Korean war and used the OODA Loop to train pilots under him. The training resulted in a 10:1 kill ratio. Col. Boyd believed that even at a disadvantage, a competent pilot could overcome his opponent by attacking the mental process or state of mind. The OODA Loop stands for Observe, Orient, Decide and Act

Benefits Of Squats

Squats Help Build Muscle. They don't just help you achieve wonderful, toned legs; they promote body-wide muscle building by creating an anabolic (muscle building) environment in the body. They work up your quadriceps, hamstrings, calves, abdominal muscles, lower back and your butt too.

Highgate Personal Training July 2019
After a 10 minute initial consultation they had no injuries or conditions and were currently fit and healthy and wanted the session totally focussed on self defence. Client 1 mentioned to me he use to train in ITF Taekwondo for a few years whilst at university and found it too demanding and was not very focussed on societies dangers, and wanted a package of natural and simple self defence techniques. Client 2 was a beginner and wanted a boost in confidence, self assurance, personal protection and general fitness.
