24-hour discount on my books and videos

It was my birthday a few days ago, so I’m doing another special discount on several of my books and videos, listed below.  Don’t delay as these discounts will be gone in less than 24h

Some of the distributors are still processing the price changes (which can take a few hours), so if you are lucky and fast, you might still get an even better deal.


Because this is the last part of a multi-day promotion:

First, I lowered the prices to just above break-even and informed my Patrons about it. Because of their continued support, Patrons get the best deals, always, on top of all the exclusive content I already make for them.  You can join us here.

Second, 24 hours later I slightly raised the prices and then informed the people on my notification list of the discounts. This is a free service I offer, letting you know about new book and video releases and discounts. You can unsubscribe at any time.

Today, I increased the prices a bit more and am letting everybody know.

I don’t price my products high because I want them to be available to as many people as possible. But every year, I try to make them even more accessible by doing this promotion. Using a tiered approach as described above, I believe it is fair to everybody. [Read more…]

Podcast episode 31: The three most common mistakes students make and how to avoid them

In this episode, I take a closer look at the three most common mistakes students make in martial arts and self-defense classes. I’ve been teaching for a long time and have consistently seen these come up. They can be avoided though, which is what I also discuss here.

Podcast episode 30: Interview with Dr. Alexis Artwohl

This is perhaps one of the best episodes of the podcast I’ve done so far. I spent about 1h45min. talking to Dr. Alexis Artwohl and she generously shared her expertise on training for lethal force incidents, dealing with the aftermath and PTSD among other topics. She has also agreed to come back on the show later this year, so we have a lot to look forward to.

Patreon Overview: November 2018 – Februari 2019

Here’s another update for the content I created exclusively for my Patreon supporters, covering November 2018 until February of this year.

My Patreon page is where I post exclusive content not available elsewhere. There is now over 37.5 hours video material and this library grows by about 75 minutes every month.  That’s without the monthly 1-hour Livestream hangout we do in our private Facebook group, which are afterwards also available for re-viewing. The best part about Patreon is that you get full access immediately after joining, so get a drink or two ready and dive in. :-)

There was a lot going on these last few months, not least of which was the special offer I did on my Stretching and Mobility Exercises for Martial Arts and Self-Defense video. That took a lot of work and some last minute juggling of several problems, but I’m very happy with the result. It helped me achieve one of my goals for last year, getting my first 50 Patrons. These Founding Fifty will keep on getting unique perks and rewards for as long as they stay a Patron. Admittance to this group is now closed forever.

I have another idea for a special in the works. I’ll announce it on my Patreon page and social media once we’re good to go.

As for what we were up to on Patreon, you can see every post by month here. November, December, January and Februari Just scroll down the page to see everything, including the posts on my timeline that I don’t mention here.
