Follower #300 signed up today. Appears to be SJ Fowler, but it's hard to tell. Sometimes the new number goes up and nobody shows up on the little widget.
So, there's something I've been considering and now seems like the time to get the ball rolling. On line free lessons. (Not completely free, I installed a 'donation' button below just in case anyone feels compelled to help me replace my armor).
So, I'm soliciting suggestions. Couple of caveats. They have to be stuff that can be written down. The hands on stuff, as I teach and understand it, has to be felt. Even video isn't good enough. So nothing technique based.
Who to aim it at? Martial artists? Self-defense instructors? Self-defense students? Writers? Some other group I'm not thinking of?
Once target audience is identified, we'll narrow it down from there. Or I'll throw out suggestions. Or I'll do whatever I damn well please...
Format will be just like any other blog post, it will just say subject and lesson number/title at the top. Open access.
Might be fun.
