Saturday, September 30, 2017

There are quite a few schools of thought when it comes to self-defense but by and large, they can be categorized into two large groups: armed and unarmed.  We are all familiar with the varieties of unarmed self-defense training that is available, but the armed varieties are becoming ever more popular.

Well, there is another option when it comes to both of these categories of situations; not engaging at all and choosing to defend yourself by NOT engaging at all, otherwise known as ‘taking a knee’.

To furthermore explain this phenomenon of ‘taking a knee’, Master Ken and Todd are back to show you exactly how Ameri-Do-Te assesses situations and determines which of the many options the art provides to utilize in any given situation.

After studying at three dozen different martial arts facilities around the world Master Ken combined all of his knowledge into the unbeatable style known as Ameri-Do-Te. He considers his Dojo a laboratory of violence…which makes him a Professor of Pain…with a Master’s Degree in Mutilation and a Doctorate in Destruction. He also has an Associates Degree in Massage Therapy.

With his ever-present and ever-faithful assistant, Todd, at his side, Master Ken delves into the many options and choices that Ameri-Do-Te has at the ready.  So sit back, relax, and expand your self-defense repertoire as Master Ken explains to you the intricacies of taking a knee and when the situation may call for such action.
