This just in from Peter Lakatos, head of RKC Hungary, from his Krav Maga teacher, Eyal Yanilov, the senior-most man in Krav Maga in the world...
"Probably due incorrect weight lifting and use of KB I developed serious back pains, Had them for 2 months. I went through some treatments in Singapore and Israel to get rid of them, but they stayed. Then I met with Pavel and Mark in the RKC Instructors Course in Hungary. Some private tutelage with Pavel (techniques with the KB were corrected), a treatment with Mark and some training under the attentive eyes of them both and other RKC instructors the back pains vanished in a day and a half. In such training method the knowledge is valuable, and they have got it"
- Eyal Yanilov, IKMF chief instructor
Humbling, folks.... Damn humbling.
On the Positivity front:
This morning, I got to see Pavel again on the beach after not having seen him in over a month. I was working with a dear student who's prepping for the UCLA RKC and recovering from a host of medical issues. That student had a major breakthrough on the snatch today also. Another student (also an RKC candidate) also had a similar breakthrough earlier in the morning.
All of this after celebrating my 3rd wedding anniversary last night.
Good times, Folks! Good times.
