The Big Recession Is Here: Should You Learn Martial Arts?

Peak Oil Learn Martial Arts and how to fight

Do you know how to kick someone’s ass?

I mean a knock-down, drag out brawl to the very end… bloody fists and a lump of beaten flesh falling as you hear the dull thud of your competitor’s body hitting the pavement.

Many people are beginning to realize just how screwed we are as Mother Earth ceases the ability to feed us all. So brothers and sisters around the planet are going to have to eventually choose to be Garden Warriors or predators. Sure, no one can predict the way things are going to go down, but they certainly are going to go down. How long you survive depends on too many variables to predict.

The question is how well you are prepared for the changes that happen in society. Not everyone is going to be nice, and just like in Nature, the weak and untrained will die off first. As much as you may hate the idea of some meathead killing you for whatever reason as laws fall by the wayside, unless you can defend yourself – it will probably happen.

It makes me wonder how much time people have to truly prepare themselves in the ways of the warrior. I can’t pretend to be an expert in this area, especially since I never spent time training in the jungle getting beat up by ninjas the way Hollywood would have us believe it goes.

No, most people with warrior skills understand that the desire to survive comes down to will power and past experience. If you have military training and equipment, you will certainly have an advantage over a white collar worker with virgin fists. But there are more and more people waking up to the “Fight Club” mentality – realizing that materialism is bunk and coming back to the principles of reality.

The fact is, as simple as we learn to live while preparing to do more with less, unless law and order is maintained and people remain civil, you might consider getting into shape sooner rather than later.

If you live in Portland, I recommend visiting Kurtis Goodwin.


I thought I might be able to get a dodge dealer to sponsor this kind of ad. I wonder if they will ever become risk takers and buy into the idea since car sales are slowing down?

    Might want to check out Krav Maga. It’s an Israeli developed system that their police and military use. Pretty basic, easy to learn, and practical. Much better than the so-called “women’s self-defense” courses I put up with when younger.
