    There are many gun school out there teaching tactical shooting. What we don’t see is a marriage between gun tactics and martial arts. Some of this may be useful and other are just downright dangerous. This video shows one “tactical shooting style” that is not only dangerous but hilarious. This family you see taking part in this tactical training were rolling, shooting over each others heads while in different stances, this is not the group to shoot with. We share videos such as this to show that just because someone think they can safely tactical shoot they may be very...

    Every morning I wake up before 5am Eastern and switch on the TV to watch the early version of ″Fox & Friends″. Aside from enjoying my breakfast with the lovely Heather Childress, I learn what the ′Big News′ item is for the day ahead. The big topic this morning was a Midnight tweet on Twitter by President Donald Trump. The story is that he allegedly misspelled the word ′coverage′ when he wrote ′covfefe′ instead in a tweet about the negative press. As a Shaolin Master Abbott of the Temple of Trump Fu, I saw the true purpose of the...

    (Angry Patriot) – The U.S. special forces are the most feared military unit in the world for a reason, and we couldn’t be more proud of them. A soldier from the Peruvian Special Forces challenged a United States Green Beret to a fight when he was visiting Peru. The Peruvian never stood a chance. “He did it with just one finger? … With just one hand he put his a** out!” cried out onlookers in wonder. The Green Beret did not hesitate, and the fight was over in an instant. U.S. Special Forces, including the Green Berets, do not rely...

    Here's a piece of advice for crooks: If you're going to break into someone's house, know whose house you're breaking into. Lee County deputies said Josue Ortiz picked the wrong house, which he found out when the homeowner beat him using his Jiu-Jitsu skills. Brian Burch said he was just trying to protect his stuff from a brazen thief. "I was holding him down," Burch said. "Once I had him, he wasn't going anywhere." Burch is skilled in the martial art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. "I wrestled before. I've trained for the last two and a half years." On Tuesday, when...

    A French politician who hopes to run for president next year has come up with an original idea of how the country can combat the “culture of fear” in the wake of recent terror attacks. Compulsory martial arts classes in France’s schools would help children respond to the fear of attacks in a productive but safe way, centrist politician Jean Lassalle believes. “There is fear everywhere,” Lassalle said to Le Figaro newspaper. “That leads some people to go around with a knife. But with martial arts, you develop self-control and learn to defend yourself peacefully.” …
  • The Kung Fu Nuns of Nepal

    For centuries, Buddhist nuns have been banned from practicing the deadly martial art of kung fu, but a few years ago the Druk Amitabha Mountain nunnery in Nepal became the home of the world’s first first order of kung fu nuns. Traditionally, the inherently patriarchal Buddhist monastic system has nuns performing only the most meanial of domestic tasks, while the monks can lead prayers and occupy powerful positions. Nuns are perceived as inferior to monks and usually spend their time working in the kitchens and gardens of Buddhist monasteries. Learning ancient martial arts is definitely off limits for them, so...
