Warrior Flow

Ruthless Intent Workshop 

San Francisco, CA -  November 7th and 8th, 2020


 “The primary thing when you take a sword in your hands is your intention to cut the enemy, whatever the means..."

                                        ― Miyamoto Musashi, The Book of Five Rings

Hey, LtCol Al here,

I’m going to be in San Francisco from the 7th to 8th November 2020 at Rise Above Performance Training conducting a “new seminar” I’ve developed called “Ruthless Intent”. This is something that we discuss in WARRIOR FLOW circles but have only now decided to teach this to a wider audience.

This is only the second seminar we’ve done of this type and we’ve made some improvements to it and I’m “really excited” about the program we’ve put together (more to follow on that in subsequent postings and mailings).

Ruthless Intent is just that, the ability to be able to summon the necessary ruthlessness, with the “confidence” to become as ruthless as a potential attacker. The ability to summon the moral will to strike with impunity, without fear, without thought. To do what must be done when you need to do it!

This is a facet of the art of WARRIOR FLOW that “very few get to learn” because it is something that can only be experienced and not just discussed, read about, or watched on a DVD. 

It must be felt!


This is that skill, that gives you that” gravitas” which, for those who have attended our previous seminars have felt from the WARRIOR FLOW Instructors. This is because we have developed the skill of being able to apply “Ruthless Intent” at will.

  • That ability to strike with bone crushing force
  • The ability to strike a person where they feel as if they are being cut in half
  • The ability to penetrate a person’s body in a way where it stops them in their tracks with seemingly little to no effort

This is not “mystical” BS “fantasy martial arts” mumbo jumbo, but a real skill rooted in physics, and how the body moves under dynamic conditions and totally learnable, but only through a specific and progressive methodology. 

As I said previously WARRIOR FLOW, while many aspects such as the exercises and certain striking techniques can be trained from our online eLearning training and our there’s nothing like experiencing it first-hand.

Well, Ruthless Intent is definitely one of those skills.  

Folks, you really want to get to this seminar in San Francisco however, I’m going to be up front here. This is a serious seminar for serious minded people who want to learn how to develop this skill to stand in that space to be able to protect themselves and their loved ones. To have the confidence of knowing at the end of the day that they can bring it.

At the end of these two days you will move and strike in ways you never thought possible and you will be able to “bring it”!

Friend, this is one of the most sought after and advanced martial concepts that few practitioners, “if ever” learn.

No mysticism, no magic, no nonsense--everything is based 100% on physics and human physiology. In this seminar there are no secrets and I hold nothing back.

Let’s face it life is short… for most of us, too short...and the one thing you don’t get back is TIME.

Every moment of every day you’re burning time off of your existence so how you use your time is up to you.

  • If you had to protect yourself or your loved ones, how good would you want to be?
  • How effective would you want to be able to strike?
  • How quickly would you want to end it?

This is what I’m talking about!

What makes these things possible is the "exquisite movement" you develop... turning your body into an exquisitely tuned martial instrument. Along with developing the proper mindset not one rooted in irrational fear but one that has been re-patterned for action!

As a martial artist your body is your weapon, and more than any particular style or technique, using your body well is what makes all the difference. But if you are to get there from here you must also develop the moral will, the perfect clarity to do what must be done and strike like lightning.

Now, imagine all those things within your reach right now!

This workshop is going to change the way you move and think about striking in profound ways.

And will be the "shift" in though making the seemingly unattainable “attainable” in the body you have.

Imagine being able to "get there first", preempt their attack before it becomes a problem. Regardless of whether you’re a seasoned martial artist or just someone looking to be able to protect themselves and their loved ones. This is the combative edge you are looking for!

Folks, to be able to strike in this fashion, as those who I’ve taught this too in the past brings about the level of confidence in ability that is “life changing”! Why else would you study how to fight?

And more…

To put it bluntly being able to "get there first", preempting their attack is the combative edge all martial artists strives for. 

This workshop will not only enhance in how you strike but will create a "shift" in thought of how you will view what is attainable in the body you have.

Folks, to be able to strike in this fashion, as those who I’ve taught this too in the past is “life changing”, and the combative edge you’ve always sought!

Why else would you study how to fight?


Maybe you once studied a martial art and for whatever reason discontinued and are looking for something that is less demanding on the body or to build on your already impressive array of skills?

Maybe you’re a person who always wanted to study a martial art but for various reasons were unable to participate?

Maybe you just looking for something that makes sense or just want to move better while giving you the confidence that you can protect yourself?


Right now, you are sort of standing at the crossroads, I know because I was once there too. 

Trust me the hole is deep, the learning is endless, the experience is life changing.

After this workshop, you will never look at a potential threat the same way again…

What do you want to do?
