    Default Happy New years....2020 goals?

    Happy new years everyone.

    I hope and pray that the new year brings success and opportunity to each of you.

    I suppose it may be a cliche to set goals at the beginning of the year, but I tend to. What are your goals or aspirations for 2020?

    For me, I want to spend more time getting stronger, take a Suarez course or two, spend more time shooting, more time with family, and go on my first deer hunt.

    How about you?

    2019 was a really bad year for me so I'm going to put it behind me and try to make up lost ground! Several training courses are first on the agenda, then more range time, and hopefully, if I can swing it, an RMR for one or more of my Glocks.

    No nonsensical resolutions, do plan on increasing my gym time from 3-4 x/week to a minimum of 5. Aging makes it harder to stay fit so must plan accordingly.

    I will do what I have always done and will do until I die. I will train hard, live like a warrior, live aggressively, love fiercely, and give no shits for the opinions of lesser humans. Yet...maybe I will do that even more this year.

    With my son being older and more manageable, Id like to be on a line with the Nobodys, Doza, Brent, Ted, Greg, and Gabe again.

    I think this is a worthy item.

    My goal this year is to move the practice further. By this, I mean that I need to get the benefactor’s project back on track. The purpose of the project was to “move the ball forward” in terms of the study and practice of combatives. After nearly four years and $50K invested, the project has impacted a number of individual lives, but has not had a broader impact overall. Departments still teach the same antiquated material that does not reflect the reality of modern combat. Instructors succeed based on celebrity or simply seek out the perception of grandeur rather than impart applicable skills. Students seek out thrill and myth (I can be like a SEAL!) rather than acquire knowledge. The purpose of the project is to start a different path - to start developing next level combatives. I’m to get that moving forward again.

    If my health continues to improve - my heart doesn’t take a dump and quit, I need to get pushy and get it going again. I’m ready to get back on the firing line.

    Chris...if it means that more terrorists will be killed by the good guys, I will hold off my exit from training and keep teaching on a limited basis.

    I had a chiropractic issue that left me in excruciating
    pain for two days while walking, in early December.
    I have taken off 50 pounds with dieting but my
    weight loss has been stagnant for some time. I
    knew that exercise was the next step, so using
    my 2 days in debilitating pain as my motivator for
    my jump start, I signed up with a trainer before
    Christmas. I was afraid that if I waited until the
    Jan 1, I would forget about my issue, and not
    get started. I just got back from the gym a few
    minutes ago. I am tired & sore when I get home,
    but it is very gratifying. I will never be at the level
    that Gabe, and Brent and others are, but I can't
    let that stop me from moving myself in that direction
    as best I can. I have a loving and beautiful wife, and
    an active teenage son. I have to provide security,
    comfort & guidance for them, as long as I can, and
    I can't expect my son to go do the things that he needs
    to be doing at his age, if I can't do them, or don't lead
    him.

    Thanks again to the tribe for everything you have
    to offer to me.
