Self-Defense Technique of the Week - How to Escape a Headlock
One of the most popular self-defense techniques taught in martial arts classes around the world is the defense against a headlock. Chances are, sometime throughout your life, you have been unlucky enough to be put in a headlock. Growing up, I can't remember how many times I saw kids in my class put into headlocks and given a noogie.

Shihan Albert Fabian, a 7th degree black belt in Aiki-Jujitsu from the Phoenix area, was nice enough to demonstrate how to properly escape a headlock. Make sure to be careful when practicing this technique so that you do not injure your partner.

Die Hard 5: A Good Day To Die Hard Teaser Trailer Out Today!

Back from what has been a string of action roles this year, action icon Bruce Willis will be donning the signature tank-top of John McClane once again in the upcoming Die Hard 5: A Good Day To Die Hard.

Even though I did end up enjoying the PG-13 action of Live Free Or Die Hard, my fingers are being kept tightly crossed in the hopes that this newest installment will be graced with an 'R' rating.

In the meantime, check out the guns/explosion filled teaser trailer and let us know if you'll be looking forward to this one when it lands next year.
Self-Defense Technique of the Week - Escaping the Double Chicken Wing
It's that time again! This week's Self-Defense technique of the week is one of my favorites.

While going to college at Arizona State University, I spent my nights working as a bouncer at one of the popular Tempe, AZ nightclubs. Every so often we had a rowdy customer who refused to leave peacefully and needed to be escorted out of the building, so I found that the best technique I could use to restrain a person without risking much injury to them was a double chicken wing.

Throughout my years as a martial artist, I've been able to find very few people who can escape a double chicken wing that is executed properly. Albert Fabian, a 7th Degree Black Belt in Aiki-Jujitsu was kind enough to bring me to his house and let me record how to successfully escape a double chicken wing.

Please be aware that you can permanently injure someone by using this self-defense technique too forcefully on their arm. Be careful!

Gina Carano First In Line For 'The Expendables' Female Version
Earlier this week it was revealed that female MMA fighter and all-around martial arts pro Gina Carano will be the first to sign on for an upcoming action movie being touted as "the female version of The Expendables".

The movie is still in its beginning stages of production (a script is still yet to be written) but it comes from the same producers behind the popular Expendables franchise so hopefully we'll be able to expect something along the same lines as the well-received Expendables 2 of this Summer.

Check back to the Martial Arts Blog for the latest news on this project as we find it. Oh, and you know we're going to be making our own recommendations for this new fighting female cast of action heroes, right?

Self-Defense Technique of the Week - Escape the Sleeper Hold
While working for, I've been lucky enough to meet some incredible martial arts instructors. One of the instructors I've been privileged to spend quite a bit of time with is Shihan Albert Fabian, a 7th degree black belt in Aiki-Jujitsu.

Recently, I mentioned to Shihan Fabian that I would be interested in creating a series of blog posts on that would highlight different martial arts self-defense techniques to help our readers learn to defend themselves a little better. Shihan Fabian was kind enough to invite me to his house to show me how to perform some great escapes on one of his students. THANKS ALBERT!
