After 30 years in law enforcement, primarilly corrections, I can tell you that all training is good. It will provide you with more tools to use in a physical confrontation. The problem is that most people will take the training and not practice the techniques taught therein.

Practice and repetition will refine techniques to the point that conscous thought is not necessary. Then, and only then will a technique become effective in a survival situation. If you have to think of how to apply a specific technique, you are so far behind the curve that a draw is the best outcome you will achieve.

I had practiced and taught marital arts for upwards of 15 years before I had found out about Tim Larkin.

TFT has totally changed my perception of violence and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in surviving a life-or-death confrontation and going home the his/her loved ones.

In fact, I discovered this blog through Tim Larkin, so I’m glad to see that (once again) you’re putting this info out there.

That all sounds good but what about Susie Q citizen, age over 50 or 60?

You’re just a young pup 🙂 I’ve done live training with DOZENS of people in their 60s and 70s.
