    Why conditioning is the essential element in any martial arts program and how you can find it at Charleston Self Defense Academy in Goose Creek SC

    Conditioning 101
    The first thing that needs to be understood about conditioning is that literally every single person out there has the ability to fight from beginning to the end of the fight without gassing out, the only difference is the pace that they’d be able to maintain if they want to do so.

  • Why you should train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) with Krav Maga at Charleston Self Defense in Goose Creek

    Many argue over what the best self defense system is. Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Krav Maga or various forms of karate are just a few that people argue till they are blue in the face. The fact of the matter is that no system on it's own can beat another hands down. Krav Maga take all of these systems and puts them together in an explosive, aggressive and fast manner. That doesn't mean you should only train Krav Maga. If you do, you are limiting yourself to small aspects of these various disciplines. Mixed Martial, although improving, has a reputation of being only for people that want to beat the crap out of each other. What most don't realize is that MMA is a mixture of long ....
