Let me say at the outset that I’m not suggesting these are the BEST martial arts for survivalists or preppers. I don’t like that term “best” as things are different for everyone.

I’m sure most of you know how I feel about New Years Resolutions … I just don’t believe in them.  After all, if you’re going to try to improve something within yourself, why wait? want to lose that ten or twenty pounds? why wait? exercise more?  why wait? be kinder, better, more attentive … just more »
