Good video! Thanks for posting, CR!
What most 21st Century Americans simply do not grasp is that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were not written to to give rights to the citizens of our then-new nation, but was instead written to tightly constrain the federal government.

Old thread, but still good content.
I wish I believed in reincarnation.  Where's Charles Martel when you need him?

I used many of these same techniques in competition, and in Practical Shooting exercises.
We practiced on mats, but did the actual moves on bare ground.

I learned to do them slightly differently, and much less athletically, and I had much more trouble getting back up, than he. But the practical effects were the same.

But do them as repetitions, in an exercise program? No thank you!

Jean was amazed to learn that I was capable of things like that.

And I was disheartened to realize that I can't do any of that stuff, any more.
Well...I could get into rollover prone pretty quickly, but I wouldn't be able to get back up. At all. Ever.
