Martial Arts Topics / How and Why to Be a Leader (Not a Wannabe)
« on: August 21, 2013, 06:46:48 PM »
Here is an excellent article about how to step up and make things better around you.  I put this in martial arts topics because it has to do with tactical awareness of what is going on around you and how to influence it to your and others benefit.

It isn't about what you have, and how much — but what you do, and why — if you're to live a life that matters.


How and Why to Be a Leader (Not a Wannabe)
by Umair Haque  |  12:00 PM July 8, 2013

We need a new generation of leaders. And we need it now.

We're in the midst of a Great Dereliction — a historic failure of leadership, precisely when we need it most. Hence it's difficult, looking around, to even remember what leadership is. We're surrounded by people who are expert at winning — elections, deals, titles, bonuses, bailouts, profit. And often, we're told: they're the ones we should look up to — because it's the spoils and loot that really matter.

But you know and I know: mere winners are not true leaders — not just because gaming broken systems is nothing but an empty charade of living; but because life is not a game. It isn't about what you have, and how much — but what you do, and why — if you're to live a life that matters.

Leadership — true leadership —is a lost art. Leaders lead us not to a place — but to a different kind of destination: to our better, truer selves. It is an act of love in the face of an uncertain world.

Perhaps, then, that's why there's so little leadership around: because we're afraid to even say the word love — let alone to feel it, weigh it, measure it, allow it, admit it, believe it, and so be transformed by it.

Wannabes — who I'll contrast leaders with in this essay — are literally just that: wannabes. They want to be who leaders are, but cannot: they want the benefits of leadership, without the price; they want the respect, dignity, and title of leadership, without leading people to lives that matter; they want the love leaders earn, act by painful act, without, in return, having the courage, humility, and wisdom to love.

When you think about chiefs, presidents, and prime ministers that way, I'd suggest that most of our so-called leaders are wannabes: those who want to be seen as leaders, without leading us anywhere but into stagnation, decline, fracture, fear, apathy, and comfortable, cheap pleasures that numb us to it all. Leaders — true leaders, those worthy of the word — do the very opposite: they lead us to truth, worth, nobility, wonder, imagination, joy, heartbreak, challenge, rebellion, meaning. Through love, they lead us to lives that matter. Wannabes impoverish us. Leaders enrich us.

So here are my six ways to start being a (real) leader — and stop being just another wannabe.

Obey — or revolt? Are you responding to incentives — or reshaping them? Here's the simplest difference between leaders and wannabes. Wannabes respond dully, predictably, neatly, to "incentives," like good little rational robots. They do it for the money and end up stifled by the very lives they choose. Leaders play a very different role. They don't just dully, robotically "respond" to "incentives" — their job is a tiny bit of revolution. And so they must reshape incentives, instead of merely responding to them. They have principles they hold dearer than next year's bonus — and so they think bigger and truer than merely about what they're "incentivized" to do. If you're easily bought off from what you really hold dear with a slightly bigger bonus, here's the plain fact: you're not a true leader.

Conform — or rebel? Are you breaking the rules or following them? The rules are there for a reason: to stifle deviation, preserve the status quo, and bring the outliers right back down to the average. That's a wonderful idea if you're running a factory churning out widgets — but it's a terrible notion if you're trying to do anything else. And so leaders must shatter the status quo by breaking the rules, leading by example,= so that followers know the rules not just can, but must be broken. If you're nail-bitingly following the rules, here's the score: you're not a true leader.

Value — or values? Why do people follow true leaders? Because leaders promise to take them on worthwhile journeys. The wannabe creates "value" for shareholders, for clients, for "consumers". But the leader creates what's more true, more enduring, more resonant: lives of real human worth. And they must do so by evoking in people values that matter, not merely "value" which is worthless. Which would you choose? In a heartbeat, most people choose the latter, because value without values is what reality TV is to a great book: empty, vacant, narrow, arid. If you're creating value — without setting values — you're not a leader: you're just a wannabe.

Vision — or truth? The wannabe sets a vision. With grandiloquent gesture and magnificent panorama, the vision glitters. The leader has a harder task: to tell the truth, as plain as day, as obvious as dawn, as sure as sunrise, as inescapable as midnight. Vision is nice, and many think that a Grand Vision is what inspires people. They're wrong. If you really want to inspire people, tell them the truth: there's nothing that sets people free like the truth. The leader tells the truth because his fundamental task is that of elevation: to bring forth in people their better selves. And while we can climb towards a Grand Vision, it's also true that the very act of perpetually climbing may be what imprisons us in lives we don't really want (hi, Madison Ave, Wall St, and Silicon Valley). Truth is what elevates us; what opens us up to possibility; what produces in us the sense that we must become who were meant to be if we are to live worthy lives — and one of the surest tests of whether you're a true leader is whether you're merely (yawn, shrug, eyeroll) slickly selling a Grand Vision, or, instead, helping bring people a little closer to the truth. And if you have to ask what "truth" is (newsflash: climate change is real, the global economy is still borked, greed isn't good, bankers shouldn't earn a billion times what teachers do, CEOs shouldn't get private jets for life for running companies into the ground, the sky really is blue) — guess what? You're definitely not a leader.

Archery — or architecture? Wannabes are something like metric-maximizing robots. Given a set of numbers they must "hit," they beaver away trying to hit them. The leader knows their job is very different: not merely to maximize existing metrics, which are often part of the problem (hi, GDP, shareholder value), but to reimagine them. The leader's job is, fundamentally, not merely to "hit a target" — but to redesign the playing field. It's architecture, not mere archery. If you're hitting a target, you're not a leader. You're just another performer, in an increasingly meaningless game.

love — or Love. Many of us, it's true, choose jobs we "love" over those we don't, readily sacrificing a few bucks here and there in the process. But this isn't love as much as it is enjoyment. Love — true love, the real thing, big-L Love — is every bit as much painful as it is pleasant. It transforms us. And that is the surest hallmark of a true leader. They have a thirst not merely for love — but to love; a thirst that cannot be slaked merely through accomplishments, prizes, or honors. It can only, only be slaked through transformation; and that is why true leaders must, despite the price, through the pain, into the heart of very heartbreak itself, lead.

And yet.

We're afraid, you and I, of this word: love. Afraid of love because love is the most dangerously explosive substance the world has ever known, will ever know, and can ever know. Love is what frees the enslaved and enslaves the free. Because love, finally, is all: all we have, when we face our final moments, and come to know that life, at last, must have been greater than us if we are to feel as if it has mattered.

The old men say: children, you must never, ever believe in love. Love is heresy. Believe in our machines. Believe in operation and calculation. Place your faith in being their instruments. Our perfect machines will bring you perfection.

I believe lives as cold as steel will only yield a world as cruel as ice. I believe cool rationality and perfect calculation can take us only a tiny distance towards the heart of what is good, true, and timelessly noble about life. Because there is no calculus of love. There is no equation for greatness. There is no algorithm for imagination, virtue, and purpose.

Even a perfect machine is just a machine.

If we are to lead one another, we will need the heresy of love. We must shout at yesterday in the language of love if we are to lead one another. Not just to tomorrow, but to a worthier destination: that which we find in one another.

It's often said that leaders "inspire". But that's only half the story. Leaders inspire us because they bring out the best in us. They evoke in us our fuller, better, truer, nobler selves. And that is why we love them — not merely because they paint portraits of a better lives, but because they impel us to be the creators of our own.

The sky is alight with fireworks here in Kunming, and it sounds like a warzone outside.  In China, every stret has explosions non-stop for days to celebrate the New Year and to scare away bad luck and bad spirits that might be lurking.  What a great tradition!

I have been told that because the Rat is a water sign, and normally earth beats water, which are in ascendant this year, but because of the Rat's strength, it will mean a year of upheaval.

Here we go!!!!!

Tuesday, November 2, 2004 (NYC- Russ' Patio)  7:30-9PM

My former student Miguel and I celebrated election day with some no armor stickfighting.  Miguel has really picked up his training to an intense level over the past 4 months and has worked himself into a good fighting weight and condition.

We started with knife, wearing 16 oz. gloves and using large daggers (8" blades).

Next we moved to machetes.  Using a live blade without contact puts your mind in the right state to fight.  You move away from thinking and just begin to feel.

After that we were ready for stickfighting.  We used 31" medium to light sticks.  No armor was used (ie. the only thing you have to protect yourself is your stick, your footwork and your fighting strategy).

We took a short break and then picked up the actionflex and the large daggers.  We also did a round of single stick action flex trying to keep the same respect for the rattan that we had been using earlier.

Back to the machetes and then rattan with no armor for a few more exchanges and then we called it a night.  It was a good chance for us both to try out what we had been training on someone we don't usually fight.

To finish off, we did some stretching of our hips and lower back.  It was a great night of fighting!

Here is a seminar well worth attending!  Ron said he's going to ask GT Gaje to do a lot of Layog and Dumog (Takedowns and Grappling).  :D

"Grand Tuhon Leo Gaje will at the Practical Self Defense Training Center from the Philippines. Go to for more information. I have been doing quite a bit with him as of last year and he definitely blew my mind with his knowledge and the way he gets the point across. A real Martial Scientist.

Take care and play safe!"

DBMA Manhattan (LG Russ' Patio)
Monday, March 29th, 2004

In attendance: Sean Bohan, Agapito Gonzalez, Brandon Carter, LG Russ.

I.  Warm-up: Single Stick (Left Handed)- Diagonal Down Forehand Strike (Caveman) to Redondo (lifting punoy high to bring the Redondo strike as close to the body as possible when it drops).  Step forward with rear leg for Diagonal Down Backhand Strike to Redondo.  Repeat for each forehand to backhand movement.  Switch to right hand.

Next I had each student try it with a baseball bat to help get the kinks out!  Literally, if there are any kinks in your wrist elbow or shoulder when you are swinging a heavy weapon, your body will let you know it!  They then went back to rattan (left handed and then right handed) and looked much smoother.

II.  Explanation of DBMA Dumpag structure (see DBMAA Dog Bytes, Archives #1).  

Translation of this structure to Knife Defense.

Freeflow: apply these principles in an unstructured scenario against more than one knife (two to be exact- one drawn, one concealed.... later to be drawn).

III.  Two Against Two Knife Fighting Principles:
1) Divide and Charge
2) Pick and Roll

We ran these scenarios freely several times switching the dominant team.  Guro Crafty taught us this material in November 2003 at Inosanto Academy (Brian Jung, Rog and Milt Tinkoff, and a few of the DBMA regulars in LA were there for that class).

IV.  Review of the material from Parts I. and II.

It was an excellent class!  


DBMA Manhattan Class
Friday, March 26, 2004

Using Stick Fighting Body Mechanics to Emphasize Empty Hand Skills: I wanted to improve the empty hand body mechanics of one of my guys, so I decided to use the stick swinging mechanics he was already familiar with to illustrate proper empty hand hip and shoulder movement.

1)  Single Stick- Diagonal Down Forehand Strike (Caveman) to Redondo (lifting punoy high to bring the Redondo strike as close to the body as possible when it drops).  Step forward with rear leg for Diagonal Down Backhand Strike to Redondo.  Repeat for each forehand to backhand movement.

Empty Hand translation- Jab, (step back to switch lead), Jab

The Jab can be replaced with an open hand check if the Metrinome is rushing in on you, it can also be an eye gouge.  What this does is maintain your fighting distance as you are being crowded.  We drilled this with the Metrinome rushing in and the Fighter hitting then stepping back to hit again.  This is a good structure if you are worried about a weapon being drawn (such as a bouncer in a bar) because it allows you to monitor the Metrinome, instead of getting close and personal just yet!

2) Double Stick- (Krabi structure) Double Jab with lead hand as you drawn back rear hand for a Caveman and step through to opposite lead.  Step through once more for a lead Hook with the tip of the stick.

Empty Hand translation- Jab, (step forward to opposite lead) Jab, (step forward to opposite lead) lead Hook.  This works an aggressive advancing attack.

Pad work- remembering the hip and shoulder movement needed to make the sticks swing properly, we moved to some basic Muay Thai boxing drills.

1)  Jab
2)  Jab, Cross
3)  Jab, Cross, Hook
4)  Jab, Cross, Hook, Cross

This was all done with movement and with the Metrinome striking back at the Fighter illiciting the Fighter?s proper cover or parry.

In preparation for the Los Triques material, we reviewed proper mechanics of the Muay Thai round kick: feed leg to partner stepping on the 45 degree (hold for 5 seconds checking form).

Next, we reviewed the two stick patterns above and then finished off with Inosanto Blend Siniwali Abecedario:

1) Abecedario 6 Count- High Labik/Low Witik/ High Labtik on each side

2) Abecedario 8 Count- High Labtik/Low Witik on each side and then High Labtik/High Labtik on each side.

3) Combine Abecedario 6 and 8 Count

4) Add Heaven 6, Standard 6 and Earth 6 to the mix.

All of this material was designed to bring our basics up to par so once we are out in the park again we can really hit the DBMA Siniwali and Los Triques material hard!


Hope to see some of you out in the Park with us this Spring.  Check back here (at the Public Forum) for details!

Manhattan DBMA
February 16th, 2004

A.  Double Stick- Inosanto Blend ABCDario Drills

To warm up and refresh out Siniwali muscle memory, we went back to these basic, but imperative drills.

1)   ABCDario 6 Count- High Labik/Low Witik/ High Labtik on each side

2)   ABCDario 8 Count- High Labtik/Low Witik on each side and then High Labtik/High Labtik on each side.

3)   Combine ABCDario 6 and 8 Count

B.  Knife- Inosanto Blend Palusot Drill

I believe this drill has a lot of merit as a ?Generator? to work several different types of material.  Here we worked in a Break.

1)   Start with a simple Palusot off of Mentrinome?s Angle 1 slash (Caveman angle).  Fighter has Bakal grip w/ right hand.  Metrinome holds knife in Heaven grip w/ right hand.  The Palusot will position Fighter?s knife at the Metrinome?s kidney.  Checking hand will trap Metrinome?s arm at the elbow/ forearm area.

2)   Metrinome checks Fighter?s Kidney thrust at the forearm and returns with a slash to F?s neck.

3)   F raises knife hand to meet M?s slash and traps M?s arm to thrust at M?s heart/ subclavian/ deltoid (LEOs) (choose appropriate target for the situation).

4)   M passes F?s thrust with checking hand (Palm In).  This creates the loop for the drill.

-   Partners switch roles after several cycles.

Next we worked in a break at #3.  In Rossi Kun Tao it is referred to as a Three Quarter Turn Break:

As F raises knife hand to meet M?s slash,  F?s blade traps M?s wrist and F?s chest and checking hand bicep straighten it to hyperextension.  Simultaneously, F steps through to an off lead which puts F?s leg between M?s and turns ? of a circle.

C.  Knife Thrust w/ Lunge Drill

I actually found myself almost exclusively using these defenses in the knife bouts at the last Gathering.

1)   close range
2)   lung range (exchange of three)
3)   far lunge range (exchange of three)

The goal here is a slight "deflection" of the opponent's knife hand using your checking hand in order for you to get your thrust in and using lunge footwork to get in and out of range.

D. Mass Attack Drill

Metrinome?s use one slash or thrust for a single direct attack on Fighter.    Fighter must use proper footwork to set up the sequence of Attackers.  This is something we train often in Atienza class.  Starts with two attackers and then a third is added during the skirmish.

Martial Arts Topics / November 2003 Gathering Observations
« on: December 01, 2003, 10:44:39 AM »
I had a great trip out from NYC for the Gathering this November.  I got into LA on Friday night and stayed at the Furama Hotel right next to Inosanto Academy.  The next day I headed over there for DBMA class and was greeting by Guro Crafty with his son and nephew.  When I went inside it was good to see Paul behind the desk as usual and C-Porn Star Dog, Brian Jungwiwattanaporn, by the Shooto ring.  Brian and I had plans to hang out after class and it was good to see him for the first time in a year.  I was anxious to see how he had progressed as well.  We were training partners at the first DBMA Camp (July 2001) and have kept in touch ever since.  

Just before class started Dogs Rog and Milt Tinkoff showed up as well.  It was a great class.  We started with The Prison Riot Drill Siniwali, worked on some 2 on 2 Knife Fighting strategies from Inosanto Blend, got an introduction to the Los Triques Single Stick Loop, and reviewed some material from The Rico.  We finished with the Redondo Three Los Triques material.  Pappy Dog showed up towards the end of class as well and at the Gathering the next day he would truly shine as a premiere Dog Brother fighter!

After class, Brian and I went to the Furama and I showed him some of my single stick fighting strategy for the next day.  I had been working a lot of single stick this time since last November I was not happy with my single stick repertoire.  Yes, I could hit people, but it was mostly light head shots that did no damage.  I really wanted to change this.

That afternoon we headed up to Santa Monica with my girlfriend for dinner.  Brian was feeling quite nervous.  This was clearly the Gathering where he was under the most pressure of any DBMA fighter.  Last November it was my time, this was his.  We had a relaxing meal and made it an early night.  Brian was ready!

The next day he and I teamed up for a 2 on 2 knife fight with Steve Feng of the LA Sayoc training group and Dog Bryan Lorentzen.  We used the strategies that Guro Crafty had taught us with great success at first, but as the fight went on I took some terrible shots to the kidneys!

Next I tried something risky: a 3 on 1 knife fight where all participants were armed.  I recruited Marc Scott to join us for this (a Shooto guy who took down his opponent in a duel that day without getting cut?. at first!) and I though they would have me down in a matter of seconds!  Using Mass Attack strategies, I was able to keep on the move for about 30 seconds.  After that they began targeting my head and I received several stabs to my face mask.  After I got two cuts on my neck, I stopped the match.  That was after about 60 seconds I think.  Next time, I?ll remember to jump off the mat and run through the crowd after I get my first round of cuts in!

C-Porn Star and Pappy Dog started off their day together.  It was quite a brawl.  I was a bit surprised to see how hard they were going at it!  While I went to get another stick for a match with Greg ?Junkyard Dog,? Chris ?True Dog,? lured him onto the mat for their first fights.  I talked Steve Feng to get out there with me and we had a great fight.

During the fight he switch hands after a hard hand hit and continued fighting leftie.  So I switched too for a while.  When the fight was over and he removed his right glove, his ring finger had become a bloody pulp.  He needed a trip to the hospital, so he ended up going with C-War Dog on his trip to the Emergency Room!

Dog Bryan Lorentzen and I fought double stick with big, thick, 31" sticks.  During the fight,  Bryan scored a solid Caveman to my mask which pushed the metal down onto my scalp.  A couple of seconds after the shot, the blood started coming out.  This ended my day, but gave me a lot to work with.

Last year, my emphasis was siniwali and lots of footwork.  This effectively kept me out of range most of the time.  This year, I tried to be more tactical and stay in close.  This left me open for hard shots if I could not deflect them.  I wanted to try something new and that is what a Gathering is for.  Now I have to figure out a way to combine these two methods!

Seeing C-Porn Star and Pappy Dog fight that day were my highlights.  Pappy was incredible.  I loved his Roof to Headbutt technique!  Truly classic!  But this day was Brian?s.  He was so nervous on Saturday, but when the time came, he fought beautifully without reserve.  I felt so happy for him.

It was also good to see how strong the Pack is becoming:

Dog Bryan was quite a formidable presence towering over me and with hands of steel from 13 years of rockclimbing!

Dog Milt seriously held his own against Iron Dog (the most fearsome fighter there that day).  What is it with you brothers?  You?ll fight anyone!

Dog Rich and True Dog demonstrated their Bolo and Krabi games with much success.

After the fights, many of us headed out to a bar on the beach and drank and talked about our fights and how we can improve.  Later we met Guro Crafty for dinner and had all you can eat Sushi.  I jumped on the plane that night for my long ride back to NYC overnight and got there just in time for work.

Attacking Blocks:

RH1B & LH1B-
(shadow with the mirror and then work it with a partner)

Emphasize crashing nature of the attacking blocks (like a footplayer?. run straight in).

RH1A & LH1A-
(shadow with the mirror and then work it with a partner)

Training ideas- Raw said the he used to have Dog Danny and Dog Rodney do 20 yard sprints with the Attacking Blocks (yelling) and also use follow up strikes.

At the end of class, Raw explained how train with Guro Marc in DBMA showed him how to functionalize all of the training drills he had been doing for years.  He said it also gave him a different focus in all of his training enabling him to progress even further.
