How To Create New Beginnings

Mindset, Positivity, Success
New Beginnings and Final Endings There has to be endings to create new beginnings. An old year ends and a New Year begins, full of promises of change and new experiences.

How To Handle A Violent Encounter

Fitness, Krav Maga
When you find yourself in a violent encounter, you may be quite literally fighting for your life, which is why it’s so important to know what you’re doing.
