I really used to enjoy watching K1. It was a great venue for standup fighters. The action was always incredible. The following video is a highlight reel of knockouts. If you like action, then I’m sure you’ll love it.

First Black Belt Pre-test
Posted: April 16, 2011
Congratulations to DeWayne Barbee, Peter Belmont, Ian McIntosh, and Dane Rahaman-Singh; for completing our Academy’s first Black Belt Pre-test.
Since our school is only 3 years old, these four gentlemen were the first students to be allowed to take the pre-test. This pre-test is used to determine the physical ability and the perseverance of students that are being considered for Black Belt.
I won’t go into the specifics of the test, but I just want to say that I was extremely happy with the performance of these four men. They did an excellent job, and they all earned the right to be tested in our first Black Belt Testing that will be taking place in the next few months.
MMA and Police Officers
Posted: April 15, 2011
I read an interesting article on how Mixed Martial Arts has affected the training of police officers in Canada. Apparently, the popularity of MMA means that a lot of “bad guys” now have martial arts training, and the police officers need to be better prepared to deal with them.
Officers need to be well rounded in striking, takedown defense, grappling, and weapons. In addition they need to be proficient in keeping their guns and tasers from being taken away and used against them.
I’m happy to see that law enforcement officers are being better prepared, but what concerns me is that the “bad guys” are becoming better in MMA.
Mortal Kombat Legacy
Posted: April 12, 2011
I came across this trailer for this online series. For fans of the Mortal Kombat games and movies, it provides the back-story and beginnings of some of the characters. It stars Michael Jai White, and some notable others. Please be warned that the series itself contains cursing and extreme violence. It is not intended for children. The trailer that I posted doesn’t have any cursing, but it does show violence, so please don’t show it to children and sensitive viewers
