it was amazing

I loved this!

Keith Vargo has had many experiences I probably will never have-living and fighting in Japan, professional fights, connections with martial artists all over the world-and so I was very enlightening to read his articles. They encompass ideas and experiences about sport fighting, traditional fighting arts,and self defense that are well thought out. He seeks for and encourages understanding between all martial arts, and I came to understand a lot about martial arts that I would not have known otherwise.
He had two articles on race and gender in fighting that was the best I've ever read. Being a woman or a minority can bring about a different kind of violence and consequences for their self defence, these other perspectives are vital to understand in order to be a good teacher or dojo partner.
