’twas about 17 years ago. I was working with a client who read my book and remarked, erroneously, “These exercises come from yoga.”
Being he was a yoga master I was gentle with my reply. “The hell they do,” I began. “They originally come from Indian wrestling, then they were siphoned and altered to become something else.”
He didn’t believe me so I directed him to the source, a hardback book entitled, The Yoga Tradition of the Mysore Palace. After reading it, he refrained from sticking a yoga flag on what I taught ever again.
Are there similarities between yoga and Combat Conditioning?
If you’re using the comparative thinking model, you can always find similarities and differences because that’s what you are looking for?
I prefer to examine something with original thinking – which means I don’t look at someone practicing yoga or pilates and say, “Uh, that reminds me of Combat Conditioning.”
True, comparing and contrasting the pluses and minuses of an exercise system or martial art can have value – but to truly recognize what something is, you will find it immensely helpful to examine it with eyes that are connected to an open mind.
Bodyweight exercises lead to the superhuman, as well as the supra-human edge of ever-expanding possibilities. And Combat Conditioning is the doorway that begins your journey.
At the present-time, I am down to less than two full boxes of my international best-seller, and once this edition is gone, it will not be reprinted. This means this “collector’s item” will go up in value, as have my other books that are now out of print, some of which I have seen on Amazon for $900-$1,000 or more.
Consider yourself fortunate for getting one of the last remaining copies because along with my book, you’ll also receive the following at no charge:
1. A copy of Kick Ass Take Names
2. An autographed copy of a martial arts magazine that features me on the cover
The value of this package is a STEAL. And when you claim the DVDs with it, you are in great hands.
Additionally, for those of you who already have my book and DVDs, here are two more recommendations for your library:
Gymanstic Abs – this is without a doubt the best book on abdominal training ever written. Want to flatten the curves in your belly, then follow Ed Baran’s advice and put this program into play. You’ll be amazed at what these exercises do for you.
Healing Isometrics – this product, created by Lt. Commander Eric Guttman, is jumping all over the world (digitally speaking), since I formally announced it last week. And with your order for it today you’ll also receive Maximum Mobility in Minimum Time at no additional charge. It’s a 2-for-1 that goes beyond belief.
Well, my friend, that’s it for today.
Have an ass kickin’ day.
