Your monthly E-Magazine guide to Combative Techniques, Tactical Airsoft, MilSim and Combative Fitness & Nutrition. Happy New Year from the Traylor’s & D.G.C.F.S. family
We hope every one had a very Merry Christmas and every one got what they wanted. We also hope you had a Happy New Year. We at D.G.C.F.S. are excited about this New Year. We have a lot of things happening for us. We have some GREAT guest writes in this issue. We are very happy that they are writing some articles for us. Some of you had ask me to do an article on 4 man hall clearing so I will in this issue as well as hand signs. I think all would enjoy it. We are also starting to build our tactical training room for our counter home invasion, clearing your own home, airsoft play just to name a couple. We are going to have a BLAST with that! We are splitting our website in to two Division, due to the over whelming response to our Reality Based Martial Arts and NOW our Combatives for Military and Law Enforcement and Government agencies, special operation teams and of course Civilians. Please be looking for the new website changes as I think you will be blown away by the changes and the new courses offered on the combative side. Mrs.Traylor and I will be offering seminar to instructors, civilians, L.E. Officers and Military Personal around the U.S. and abroad as Dark Gift Combat Fighting System is starting to get recognized. We have been asked to do a seminar with a few Instructors at Universal City and have been asked to may be also do one in Dallas and Austin, Corpus Christi, This will not affect us being here at the studio or with our classes as most will be over the weekend or over a 3 to 4 day course. New video should be up on our website, a commercial and new training videos on gross motor skill set and stick trapping and maybe some boxing trapping. If any one out there wishes to see an article on a particular topic please let us know. We are also in the works on putting together our first series of DVD’s for Reality Based Martial Arts and Dark Gift Combat Fighting System. So be looking, we are all excited in anticipation for 2009 and what the future holds for D.G.C.F.S.

Yes. Little Things DO Matter! Anyhow, let's get into it: I read a book earlier this year called "The Tipping Point" by Malcolm Gladwell; it was very enlightening! It examines: "How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference". If you get a chance, read it. It's darn good. What it helped me realize is that mastery of the "little things" is especially important if you want a phenomenal body! Think of the perfect body as a racecar. Racecars go faster, and handle better than regular cars, because they are built precisely and methodically; every little variable is controlled. So, if you want to turn your Pacer into a. Ferrari you gotta start RE-BUILDING and REFINING... making sure to control all of the little things in the process! Here's my "Sweet 16". 16 EASY things you can do to start the re-building process: 1. Train HARD. Train OFTEN. The harder, longer and more often you exercise, the faster you'll get real results, PERIOD. There ain't no 2 ways about it!. There are no "magic" pills, supplements, diets, injections or anything, that can replace good old-fashioned HARD WORK. "How hard is hard enough?" If you have to ask, you're not training hard enough. Simple as that! Ask yourself: "Have I given my all; have I given 100%?" Answer yourself honestly; no excuses! If you're not COMPLETELY EXHAUSTED after your workout, YOU HAVEN'T TRAINED HARD ENOUGH. So, get your butt back in the gym, and train MORE! If you don't have the time, train more when you DO. Get it? Listen, if you fail to train hard enough, long enough, and consistently enough, you will not get the body you want. ... Remember this every time you think about quitting early! A word of CAUTION, though: Use good judgement. Be aware of your body's WARNING SIGNS; don't ignore them! Don't be the bonehead that passes out at the gym! 2. Surround yourself with "Positivity". Read books that help you think more positively. Start your foundation with "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill. If people make fun of you for reading "self-Help" books, stop talking to those people; they'll ALWAYS be LOSERS! The tools you'll find in most self-help books WORK; Plain and simple! Also: Eliminate contact with "negative ned's" as my Master Gunnery Sergeant in the U.S. Marines used to refer to them. (Thanks Master Guns!!) Hanging around with incessantly negative people
How to better yourself in 2009!
will only BRING YOU DOWN! 3. Find creative ways to increase TDEE; (Total Daily Energy Expenditure). Take the stairs Ride a bike, or walk to the gym. Park further away from stores, so you have to walk further. Walk your dog... longer. Be creative: come up with your own unique ways to increase your TDEE! 4. Use MUSIC as a motivator. Music ROCKS! It helps you train harder! Buy a durable portable music player and listen to high intensity music every time you train! 5. "Hide" in the gym. Wear a hat pulled down over your eyes... wear your music player / headphones and wear clothes that make you FEEL INVISIBLE, so you can focus on YOURSELF! Forget about anybody else in the gym; it's about you! Hiding in the gym forces you to "run your own race" and stop comparing yourself to everyone else in the gym. If you can do it CONSISTENTLY, you'll soon start looking hotter than everybody around you. ...Eventually, YOU'LL be the person that
people are looking at! Trust me, it DOES happen that way... I know, because it happened to me!
6. Avoid "Toxic" relationships. Hey, I'm not telling you to break up with your significant other right now, but be careful: there may be people close to you who sub-consciously want to see you fail! Guys and girls are BOTH equally vulnerable to the havoc that toxic people can wreak! If you find yourself in conflict with someone close to you regarding your fitness plan, ask yourself 3 questions: 1. What is their motivation for trying to bring me down? 2. Whose happiness is REALLY important to me? 3. Do my fitness decisions represent the best option for me? OR for someone else?!? Avoid toxic relationships whenever possible, and remember: Don't take ANYTHING personally. People with toxic personalities have LOW self-esteem and "misery loves company." Don't let 'em bring you down to their level! 7. Don't SABOTAGE yourself. Don't sacrifice your goals to peer pressure! There will ALWAYS be parties and bars and restaurants and LOTS of fun things to do. But you don't HAVE to do any of them! Until you reach your ultimate goal of an amazing body, the quest for that goal should consume 100% of your effort. Don't do ANYTHING that counteracts your progress until the ultimate goal is reached. Every time somebody pressures you to go out and forget about your goals, remind yourself about how BAD if feels to NOT feel confident with your body when you're out and about! None of your friends know how badly you want to improve your body... they can't feel your PAIN... your burning DESIRE ...and they don't care! Besides, the more you DON'T GIVE IN, the more people will respect you! (...Envy you too!) 8. PLAN, PLAN, PLAN. If you fail to plan, plan to FAIL. It's that simple. Getting in great shape is NOT easy. You WILL encounter countless challenges along the way. Anticipate your challenges; plan solutions; 'nuff said. 9. Motivate a friend. Help a friend take steps towards breaking their "failure cycle". Teach them what you have learned. Doing so may help YOU more than it does them. However, be patient... and DON'T TRY TOO HARD! Give your friend tools, suggestions and support, but try to let them figure most things out alone, and on their own time... Remember, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink! 10. Drink LESS. Hey, most of us like a drink once in a while. I like a cold beer or a Jameson, from time to time... BUT in truth alcohol in excess is NOT good for you, especially if you want to get phenomenal results quickly. It's that simple. Yes, one drink does matter. Remember: it's all about the little things. if you think one drink doesn't matter, then one missed workout doesn't matter, or 10 fewer minutes of cardio doesn't matter, either! Lots of "little failures" add up to BIG FAILURE. If that's OK with you, then, by all means, have that drink; if you can stop at one that is. Admittedly, some drinks are less "bad" then others, but they'll all slow your progress. Wanna get results QUICK? Sacrifice the partying 'til you get your beach body. 11. "Burn your ships". A great scene from one of my favorite movies of all time, "The Hunt for Red October", sums this up. In a meeting with his officers, the captain of a submarine tells the story of how Cortez, the conquistador, burned his ships upon arrival in the new world to eliminate the option of retreat! What does this mean to you? Well, if you REALLY want to get an awesome body, "burn your ships". Tell everyone who'll listen about your goals, and what you plan to do. Then, you CAN'T fail! If you do, you'll look like a FOOL. How else could you "burn your ships"? 12. Utilize visual reminders. Use Post-It notes! Write your goals on them - short and long term. Then post them on your mirror; mark them off as you accomplish them. (Yes, REAL people... real SUCCESSFUL people actually do this when no one's looking. Why shouldn't you?) Also: put motivational pictures up. Post a "before" pic somewhere you'll see it daily... it'll be a painful deterrent to SLACKING! AND paste your head on a picture of a really great body and post that up too! Sure, you'll feel silly, but it WORKS and that's the bottom line! 13. Purge your house. Grab a trash bag and throw out all of the "bad" food in your house. Do it now! Temptation: reduced! 14. Break up with your TV. That relationship has gotten too "comfortable" and is costing you your health and your goals. Media images are misleading, and INNACURATE. It's almost impossible to watch TV without comparing yourself to the "perfect" bodies you see ...and that's BAD NEWS! Turn it off and go exercise; NOW! As a matter of fact, cancel your cable. I did, and I didn't miss ANYTHING! (But I sure did have a lot more time to exercise!)
Page 3 15. Keep a journal. Don't worry if it isn't perfect. Don't worry if you don't accurately record every detail of your workouts or diet. Just focus on writing something in it every day! Write what you feel, or what you think. Write what you did better today, or what you did WORSE today... ANYTHING! Just WRITE! Making the effort and being consistent is the key; it forces your goals to remain in the forefront of your mind. 16. DO BETTER TOMORROW! Find some way - ANY WAY - to improve upon your performance from yesterday, and then DO IT! I don't care if it's a measly 5 extra minutes on the treadmill, IT COUNTS. ...and combined with all the other little efforts you're making, IT WILL WORK! Hope this helps; I look forward to your feedback. Ooh-Rah!! www.Fit2Fight.com

By Clint Bodungen
You’ve heard the saying, “Everyone has a plan until you get hit.” It happens to everybody. You can have a 10th degree black belt in 10 different arts but if you get into a real fight on the street or on the battlefield, none of the techniques you’ve learned seem to look the same or may not work altogether. In fact, a bystander may not even be able to tell you are a martial artist at all because pretty much all technique is out the window. What happens to us on the street during a fight is a natural reaction that has been happening to humans since our first cave fight. In an effort for survival, the human body will shut down all but the essential functions to survive. What this means is that if you are confronted with a seriously threatening or life threatening situation, your body’s ability to do anything but fight back will be diminished. And when I say fight back, I mean fight back in the most primitive form; gross motor skills and cave man like flailing. When your heart beat reaches a certain level and adrenaline is surging through your body, you start to get tunnel vision, you experience loss of hearing, and complex motor skills become nearly impossible. Therefore, so too are Mr. Bodungen Co-Founder of complex martial arts movements and techniques. So does this mean that technique A.R.C.. Instructor in Hand to training is useless? Can we learn to fight effectively on the street using technique Hand Combat at D.G.C.F.S. and not resort to a slug fest? Do you remember your first roller coaster ride? I do… Inside D.G.C.F.S. and I about lost my stomach. I clinched my teeth, held on, and could barely stand it until it was all over. However, what happened after that? The second ride wasn’t so Happy New Year 1 bad. The third was even easier. By the time I had a few rides under my belt I could Mike’s Fitness Corner 2 barely feel the G-forces anymore. So what happened? My body adapted. It Coming events 5 adapted to these natural human physiologically reactions. Fighter pilots not only Taken it To the street 6 overcome the same physiological reactions caused by even more intense forces and Controlling Family 7 Airsoft Products 8 stresses, they learn to perform highly complex actions. Starting to see where I’m Hand signals 9 going with this? With proper training, one can learn to adapt to, and over come, the Hall Clearing 10 stresses we encounter during a real street fight or life threatening attack. But, the Lack of realistic training 11 key word is “proper” training. You can have all the training techniques down perfect D.G.C.F.S. Combative Modules 14 for years and years but if you will still fall victim to the same crippling human physiological reactions if you are not training properly. So how do we train to overcome this? Well, if getting hit causes this reaction on the street, you have to get hit in the training studio… again, and again, and again, and again, until your body adapts and gets used to the idea and action of getting hit. You may be saying, “But we spar all the time.” Sparring is not training for the street. Sparring is training for points and sport. In order for your body to adapt, you must simulate a real street fight or attack. You must have an “attacker” not a sparring partner. Does that fighter pilot just perform a limited set of controlled actions in a simulator to be battle ready? No, he also goes all out in life-like battle simulations up in the air against opponents simulating the enemy over and over again. Your training must be the same. Your attacker must come at you with the force and malicious intent that a real street attacker would instead of “pop shotting” you, attacking and retreating, and picking shots like a sport fighter. You can, and should, even start off in full pads and work your way up in intensity and eventually less protection. Do drills that get used to the feeling of taking a hit. Learn to keep your vision while taking a hit and being attacked. Put yourself in stressful training situations. Do drills that force you to keep your concentration while being attacked. Do drills that simulate an ambush. Put yourself in situations that make you nervous. If you become complacent, step it up or change the routine to something that stimulates nervous response and duress. This is known as pain and stress inoculation. This is the type of training that will force your body to adapt to those types of stressful environments and perform at a level like never before. Just remember, in order to perform effectively in a stressful environment or situation, you must train in that environment. If you want to learn to fight in the cage or score points, go spar. If you want to learn to fight effectively in a real life street fight, train like you are in a street fight! Next month I will go over these drills in more detail. Until then, train hard and train real! Page 6
Control of the Family
If there’s nothing more to the holidays then getting together with family and friends, it wouldn’t get much sweeter than that. That is until you brother-in-law, father-in-law, brother, uncle, or whoever has one too many drinks because we forgot to cut him off after dinner. Now you have a person in your home that isn’t a robber or an intruder of any type, getting angrier because he lost money on the game or something that happened in the past that he like to relive or maybe they’re just jerks. The question is do I just go ape on this guy and wreck his life, never hearing the end of it around the holidays or any other time for that matter, maybe even only hearing about it on visiting day in the county lock up. This type of situation is where our control over ourselves and our methods is a very crucial part of our training. Your family member may deserve an elbow to the ear, but it would be more beneficial to keep the peace by using controlling techniques and locks. Using sweeps, takedowns, and throws are acceptable as well, just try to refrain from the combination punches and crippling knee kicks or breaks. Just use enough force as needed, and being drunk and full of adrenaline it would be best to take out the legs, and manipulate the joints. The use of pressure points may not be the wisest of choices. However, a lock and anything to take him off balance would be the best way to deal with this situation. Using restraints and anything that would put him down with permanent damage is suitable. Example: He takes a druken swing (don’t forget to read his body language), you duck under him while moving in, shoot inside and grab for a double leg take down, drive forward to knock him off balance and try to merely lay on top of his chest pinning him down. Any lock here would be okay as well. You’re not looking for a submission or a break, but just something that will hold him down and tire him out. This is the importance of learning control over you and over you techniques, and using retraining holds and locks is a good thing to add to your tool box if you haven’t already. Have a safe holiday season and remember to train for any situation.

Hallway Clearing Techniques The clearing team must always be alert. Team members provide security at the breach point and to the rear. Inside buildings they provide security laterally down corridors, and upward if near stairs or landings. The two basic techniques for moving down hallways are shown in Figure 3-39. Hallway intersections are dangerous areas and should be approached cautiously (Figures 3-40 and 3-41). (1) Serpentine. The serpentine technique is used in narrow hallways. The number 1 man provides security to the front. His sector of fire includes any enemy soldiers who appear at the far end of the hall or from any doorways near the end. The number 2 and number 3 men cover the left and right sides of the number 1 man. Their sectors of fire include any soldiers who appear suddenly from nearby doorways on either side of the hall. The number 4 man, normally carrying the M249, provides rear protection against any enemy soldiers suddenly appearing behind the clearing team. (2) Rolling T. The rolling-T technique is used in wide hallways. The number 1 and number 2 men move abreast, covering the opposite side of the hallway from the one they are walking on. The number 3 man covers the far end of the hallway from a position behind the number 1 and number 2 men, firing between them. Once again, the number 4 man provides rear security.
Figure 3-39. Hallway clearing techniques.
(3) Clearing "T" Intersections. Figure 3-40 depicts the fire team's actions upon reaching a hallway "T" intersection when approaching from the base of the "T". The fire team is using the serpentine formation for movement. The team configures into a 2-by-2 formation with the numbers 1 and 2 men left, and the 3 and 4 men right. (When clearing a right-hand corner, use the left-handed firing method to minimize exposure.) The numbers 1 and 3 men move to the edge of the corner and assume a low crouch or kneeling position. On signal, the numbers 1 and 3 men simultaneously turn left and right, respectively. At the same time, the numbers 2 and 4 men step forward and turn left and right, respectively maintaining their (high) position. (Sectors of fire interlock and the low/high positions prevent soldiers from firing at another.) Once the left and right portions of the hallway are clear, the fire team resumes the movement formation.
Figure 3-41 depicts the fire team's actions upon reaching a hallway "T" intersection when approaching along the cross of the "T". The fire team is using the serpentine formation for movement. The team configures into a modified 2-by-2 formation with the numbers 1 and 3 men abreast and toward the right side of the hall. The number 2 man moves to the left side of the hall and orients to the front, and the number 4 man shifts to the right side (his left) and maintains rear security. (When clearing a right-hand corner, use the left-handed firing method to minimize exposure.) The numbers 1 and 3 men move to the edge of the corner and the number 3 man assumes a low crouch or kneeling position. On signal, the number 3 man turns right around the corner keeping low, the number 1 man steps forward while turning to the right and staying high. (Sectors of fire interlock and the low/high positions prevent soldiers from firing at one another.) The numbers 2 and 4 men continue to move in the direction of travel. As the number 2 man passes behind the number 1 man, the number 1 man shifts laterally to his left until he reaches the far corner. The numbers 2 and 4 men continue to move in the direction of travel. As the number 4 man passes behind the number 3 man, the number 3 man shifts laterally to his left until he reaches the far corner. As the number 3 man begins to shift across the hall, the number 1 man turns into the direction of travel and moves to his position in the formation. As the numbers 3 and 4 men reach the far side of the hallway, they too assume their original positions in the serpentine formation, and the fire team continues to move.
I hope you like this information and those of you in L.E. & Military thanks for the asking me to do this. I had a lot of fun. In the next issue I might do counter ambush and ghillie suite. How to make one or where to buy one. Mr.Traylor
Lack of Realistic Training in today’s Defensive Knife Courses
Defensive knife tactics are an underrated necessary skill. In today’s world where the criminal is better trained and more determined than ever before, one must be skilled both physical and mentally to face these new challenges and go home at the end of each day. In order for someone to acquire these skills, one must seek out and train with instructors which teach effective, real world defensive techniques. Today’s defensive community is plagued with unrealistic training techniques as well as unproven training techniques. Many instructors teach techniques which are ineffective in real life street fights. These techniques are praised upon by the instructors, yet students have no way of determining if these techniques are really effective. This is extremely dangerous as the student may depend on these skills one day to save their life, the life of a friend or partner. Techniques that look ‘devastating’ in a dojo, training video or on TV most often do not work on the streets. Real Attackers are fast, furious, and they are determined to either hurt you, or kill you. Most trainers pair up students, each knowing when and how to attack. Then, both students move slowly so that each student has time to move and react. This is great for basic training when understanding the fundamentals is essential; however, to train for ‘real life survival’, training MUST escalate to unknown, full speed attacks. Most techniques seen today depend mostly on either fine motor skills, which are seriously depleted when your heart starts racing, or the student must practice the technique for years to acquire the proficiencies required to perform the technique correctly. Students must understand that when faced with a Real Attacker, one that actually wants to hurt you, that you must act fast, without remorse, and the techniques you use must immediately stop the attack. Your heart will be racing, your blood pressure will increase dramatically, and your body will go through many changes. Some of these changes include; a reduction in your vision, loss of hearing, and most importantly, your ability to think and manipulate your extremities. Techniques must be simple, and must be engrained through repetitive practice, both physically and mentally, so if ever attacked, you will instinctively react, stopping the attack. Proving that techniques are effective is especially true when learning techniques against edged weapons. Edged weapons are extremely dangerous and applying techniques that don’t work is a tactical liability, and can get you and others killed. Several years ago I started substituting training knifes for large Crayola Markers. These markers would leave a mark on the attacked if the defensive technique wasn’t applied correctly. This was a great way of training, however, the markers were constantly breaking, and wasn’t professional looking, or effective as a reality based training tool, as markers do not feel or act the same way as a blade. Only the tip of the marker would leave a mark, where a blade has an edge as well as a point, letting it cut in many directions. I also tried using chalk on the edge of training knifes, which worked similar to using markers, but the mark was hard to see and needed to be re-applied to the blades constantly. Then I read an article about Hank Hayes and No Lie Blades, a company which manufactures training knifes and provides tactical combat training to Military, Law Enforcement and civilians. There training knives use ink or paint on their felt lined knifes that leaves marks, much like what I was use to. I went to there website at nolieblades.com, I found it very informative and quite different from many other websites. Their training knifes looked professional, and the marks that were seen in the article left no doubt that the knife made contact and a defensive technique in fact failed. I called No Lie Blades and reached Hank Hayes the CEO and ordered two of their ‘Standard Series, Double Edged Knife kits’. I received the No Lie Blades several days later, along with two instructional knife defense DVD’s and several tubes of lipstick. That same week I held a Defensive Knife Course. Before class started, I prepped the knives as stated in the directions. I was extremely impressed with both the quality of the No Lie Blade training knives as well as the incredible deep red (blood like) mark that these training blades left. There was no doubt when the blade made contact. It was also possible to clean the felt and use them as regular training knifes without them leaving their mark on the defender. During class I noticed an immediate change in the student’s attitude as they were amazed with the product as well, and they simply hated getting marked by them. Several of the students have had defensive knife instruction before, from another instructor, and realized that they had a lot more to learn than they had previously thought. This made the student try much harder ‘Not’ to get marked. The students moved faster, and they took training more seriously. The students seemed to learn the techniques much faster than with previous training blades. The No Lie Blades training knives greatly enhanced my combat skills and helped provide the immediate proof that the students needed. I have purchased several more of these training knives from No Lie Blades and use them religiously in my training curriculums. These are high quality training knifes, easy to use, feels great in the hands and there mark leaves no doubt that they made contact, these blades DO NOT LIE. About the Arthur:
