Michael Janich is a living legend when it comes to martial arts. He’s been in the game for about as long as I’ve been alive and has been featured in many publications over the span of a few decades. It’s a rare occasion to have an opportunity to learn from men like this and so I consider it to be such an honor that he took time to speak with me on our podcast.
Integrated Combatives is something that many instructors take a swing at but as you’ll see during this interview Michael definitely has something very special with regards to his system “Marshall blade concepts“. His approach is very effective on many levels beyond the realms of things I see being taught to the masses and the greater public online right now and I believe that has everything to do with his experience, pedigree, and mindset.
He is an instructor amongst instructors who has an extremely robust brand with training opportunities both online and in person. If you are taking protection seriously you realized that there is so much more to this game than firearms but his brand includes training for those tools as well. There is something for everyone in this interview… ENJOY!
