I have owned a SISU Mouthguard now for about 5 years, and it is far and away the best mouthguard I've ever owned in 30 years of training.
It is light, comfortable, and doesn't make you gag. The perforations allow for talking and drinking with your mouthguard still in, which means you don't have to slurp spit and pull your guard out every time you need to coach or ask a question! I have remolded this guard at least a dozen times and it still shapes properly.
10/10 in my book! Use our Amazon Affiliate link to purchase the BEST mouthguard ever!
There are five books in this volume, but I recommend you read Volume 1 twice. This is a crash course on the history of Kenpo as well as a philosophy book and instruction manual.
Parker is an incredible author who has that rare capability of interpreting complex ideas using the vehicle of metaphor. This is a fun and quick read that is necessary for all levels of Kenpoist. Use our Amazon affiliate link above to snag your copy!
I probably recommend this book to people more than any other. This is not just for the martial artist! This book is for the first responder, the single mother, the traveling business person, the rideshare driver, and so many other folks out there who desire confidence in their everyday routine.
De Becker is an exceptional author, and this book reads like a thriller! He pulls examples from real situations he has experienced in his career as a personal bodyguard (such as assassination attempts and serial killers) and analyzes them in great detail in order to prepare the laymen for violence. The philosophy derived from this book has become engrained in our teaching at TKS. Use our Amazon affiliate link above to grab your copy!
A retired law enforcement officer and a Lt. Colonel get together and write THE MOST in depth and scientifically backed book on the physiology and psychology of violence--from both the perspective of the defender and the attacker.
Although this book can be slow at times with example after example of evidence to prove certain points, it is hands down the best book to train your brain for the inevitable affront of violence that will someday stand at your doorstep. Use our Amazon affiliate link to grab your copy today!
