What Jamal S. is saying about this Meetup Group

This is something I did not really expect, this is not a regular run-of-the-mill martial arts training. Lots of real-life actionable advice and Nick speaks from experience. I was expecting it to be all about stick-fighting techniques but significant portion of the meetups is about self-defense tactics, how to act in unexpected/dangerous situations, how to protect yourself and others etc. Fair amount of insight into psychology/cognitive science, believe it or not. Brain-boosting music, anyone? Nick has a very authentic way of delivering his teachings and you can tell he cares very much about the bigger picture which is teaching people to protect themselves while getting healthier. The workout itself starts off very mild, you basically learn to swing the stick until you start putting basic moves together, and then you are all of a sudden exhausted physically as much as mentally. And it is never boring, not like going to the gym.
