Forget about the demo for the MMA guys in the beginning. It’s nice but meant to be pretty and informative. Pay attention to the “Last of the Mohicans” challenge and the choices that the MMA guys DON’T make because, though they are incredible athletes and tough as nails with incredible techniques, they haven’t trained to make ‘field’ choices.
The “One Mind, Any Weapons” approach translates well to civilian training. More than focusing on mastering techniques with various weapons, a strong focus on training the brain makes a student responsive, adaptive, and effective because he (or she) can size up what they have, what they are facing, and what they need to.
I especially like the emphasis on conditioning and mentality in conjunction with technique.
