Summer training in the study group today!
Here a clip with Emil in a simulation, counter knife.
Not everything goes as drilled, when adrenaline is present!
But better action than to freeze in the situation. 👍
Vision is covered in the start for stress, and to give the “subject" control over the initial distance.
Before the simulation basic counter knife was drilled:
Weapons pre cues, flanking with escape, kick with escape, and counter stab/slash.
All did good!👊👊💥 #urbancombatives

Little William was a cheeky boy. At 3 months old, his parents noticed a bump on his head, which was thought to be hemangioma, a benign tumor. However, it was rapidly growing and more tests were ordered - blood tests came back with a high LDH, an enzyme that turns sugar into energy, which can indicate cancer. Further scans showed many lesions throughout his body - lungs, scapula, leg and a large primary tumor on the adrenal gland, above the kidney.
William was admitted immediately as he had stage 4 cancer, starting chemo then. The biopsy showed small round blue cells, thought to be Neuroblastoma. The chemo was targeted at Neuroblastoma, and the tumors were rapidly growing.
Turns out, it wasn't Neuroblastoma... The tumor could not be diagnosed and it remains that way; 3 rounds of chemo proved to be working, along with surgery to remove the primary tumor - everyone was so hopeful!
Mid-April, between treatments, William was at home when he became extremely lethargic and vomited. He was brought into the ER and a CT revealed cancer had spread to his brain.Will was then admitted to the PICU, where he stayed 7 wks, in which he had 3 brain surgeries, shunt placed, 2 more rounds of chemo (ICE - consists of 3 drugs) and even immunotherapy.
Despite best efforts, William peacefully went to heaven in his loving parent's arms, on May 31st. Cancer was too aggressive for hi tiny body. The following day, Will would've been 8 months old.
He was always smiling, even when he felt awful; All he wanted was to see people happy, with those gorgeous big blue eyes. He taught everyone to be courageous, to smile through the darkest of times and to never take a moment for granted.
This was and still is a time of despair for William's parents, who so desperately miss their baby. Cancer once again took an innocent child.
We miss you so much, Hero William 💛💔 #morethan4

WARNING GRAPHIC🚫 Arnold was involved in a very seriously accident, where an uncontrollable dog (won’t say breed to avoid the stigma) attacked Arnold upon entering a dog park... Arnold was mauled by a male dog for 15 agonising minutes where the jaws never left Arnold’s throat and neck area. Watching Arnold cry and looking around helplessly whilst the dog shook him like a rag doll and dragged him around the park, I thought ...he won’t come out alive... but sure enough, in those minutes where the dog let him go... I grabbed his harness and dragged his limp body as fast as I could away.. As I sat in a corner of a closed safe cage area after pushing the attacking dogs head out of the gate to close it shut, the dog attempted to jump over and attack Arnold again... All I could do was simply hold him tight and cover him and wait until some amazing people came and helped us. One agonising night away from Arnold whilst he had surgery to close his deep wounds ... which his beautiful plump rolls saved him from near death injuries. I’m grateful that Arnold is home, alive and an absolute fighter! I love you very much arnold. For all those who helped, I appreciate everything and will be forever grateful. 🧡 #sharpeipuppy #iloveyou #fighter
Don’t let your PTSD control you. Remember that you are strong and beautiful. If you’re in a situation where you’re too scared to leave know your not alone. If you are in a place where you’ve gotten out of the domestic violence situation and you have developed PTSD. Know that you are not alone. You may feel stuck, lost, paralyzed by fear. Know that you are not alone. July 2014 is when my ex husband brought back to life one of my biggest fears. The end result, I got away (but developed PTSD) he went to prison. I truly did not believe that I would ever be where I am today. I couldn’t see me ever getting unstuck from that paralyzing fear. I had fallen into believing so many lies from people I thought cared about me. It took not giving up pushing through each day and fighting to know, I’m not alone. This morning in church was a great morning. Yes I had my first panic attack in the church in a long time. God showed me this how far I’ve come. God also used a special person to reach out to me at the right moment I needed him too. I know he’s going to use me to be the light in the darkness of other peoples lives. I choose to let him use me. I am grateful for the things that God is bringing into my life. I am grateful for the places he’s brought me out of. Even though my body is still reliving the trauma I am proud of how far I’ve come. I am grateful for how far God has brought me. #fighter #survivor #positivevibes #supergirl #ptsd #ptsdawareness #ptsdrecovery #ptsdsurvivor #strongwomen #neveralone #nevergiveup #staystrong #yougotthis #wonderfullymade #beautiful #hope #love #loveyourself #believe #believeinyourself
