Jamie Clubb’s book is soon to be released! Jamie is a good friend and I believe him to be one of the most thoughtful, insightful and erudite martial artists I’ve ever met. Phone calls between Jamie and I are never short affairs (“quick chats” typically last over an hour) as we share thoughts and bounce our various martial musings off one another. I’m really delighted that this book will offer some of Jamie’s thoughts to the wider martial world. Definitely a must have for every thinking martial artists; regardless of your background.
“The intellectual dimension in reality training, putting the brains behind the brawn” - Mo Teague
“Truly a critical thinker [who] accepts nothing at face value. He believes in research, the scientific approach, and unbiased analysis. Jamie has trained with some of the world’s leading personal combat specialists, and he has received remarkable accolades from men who are not easily impressed. Not content with merely teaching a set of physical techniques, Jamie seems to have a unique mission… he wants his students to experience the joy of discovery on their own. He presents them with skill sets not only to learn to fight and defend themselves but also how to research their own approach and learn to think. Jamie is truly a modern-day Renaissance man”. - Ron Goin, founder of P.U.M.A. (Practical Urban Martial Arts)
"These articles ask important questions about tradition, ethics, and several other martial concepts. He regularly challenges the reader with simple reason and logic to break through misconceptions and limiting beliefs in the area of self-protection. Jamie shows himself to be very knowledgeable in a wide array fields. These fields include martial arts history, zoology, evolutionary psychology, and sport specific training - to name a few." – T.J. Kennedy, founder of Canada's Hybrid Fighting Method.
“The writer is erudite and extremely well read and practised, the writing is literary and compelling and the prose is articulate and challenging for all the right reasons”. - Geoff Thompson
“One of the most insightful martial artists it’s ever been my pleasure to meet. His direct and practical approach cur right to the heart of functional self-protection”. – Iain Abernethy
