PHIL DOHERTY: WELCOME to our new style blog platforms. As you can see the new blog platforms are interactive and you can now leave comments on the blogs. We hope that you will enjoy being able to talk to our contributors and discuss the issues, ideas and concepts they bring to Martial News.
We also would like to welcome Paul Green to Martial News. Paul is an American tactical defence systems expert who trains US police officers.
He will be discussing many different aspects of this field and has started his blog off with a perspective on what is known as the "Bystander Effect". This is a must read for any martial artist who teaches self-defence and something we all should be aware of...
The new blog platforms are being developed in stages and before long all our contributors will have the same ability to interact with their readers.
It’s all part of the continuing evolution of Martial News. As you may be aware we will shortly be launching a new internet live TV streaming company with our new partners the 10th Legion and film company Dapper Grappler. This will see the top MMA, Muay Thai, Kickboxing and submission grappling contests and shows being streamed live across the world.
But we will also be filming top traditional Karate, Taekwondo, Kung Fu and other styles competitions and streaming these live as well.
And - as the TV develops - we will be running programmes on seminars, history of martial arts and top instructors and much much more besides.
