It is always about the relationships and the people , when folks miss this they miss the meaning of the rank , its the contribution , the camaraderie , the sharing and the learning over time that makes ones path , and cements ones knowledge.
Hit the gym – A good rule of thumb is for every mile you can run (not jog) you are good for one minute in a fight. You can run two miles? Well, you’re good for two minutes.

Hi Van thanks for the kind comments, please if you post this on the forums pass my best to Jim Prouty good to see him around.
I couldn't help but see the exhaustion stuff, there's some good information I agree with I thought Id share what I do down here.
It is true that cardio is great , but the fittest man will gas quickly when exerting all out effort , as your article prescribed the fitter will exert more power and fatigue just as quickly as the unfit .
Bill really nailed it when he hinted on anaerobic vs. aerobic.
There are many sports and athletes that rely on conservation of energy, BJJ springs to mind, where superior positioning and knowledge allows
them let there opponent flail and power out, causing them to gas, and then they quickly take the advantage, the Ali Foreman bout is legendary for it.
However I believe it unrealistic to rely on such sporting tactics in the shear panic of a street fight.
There is a training protocol that can be used to experiment with all these things, because it targets both the aerobic and anaerobic systems
It's called the tabata protocol; I do a more martial flavor version with exercises designed for power and movement in mind.
While no regime is enough in itself any more than one style is, this one comes pretty close if modified with martial arts in mind.
There are a lot of links to it on the web if folks are interested. Plenty of peer research you could dig for that Bill would approve of me thinks.
What I believe ...someone should be training for tactically ....is ...burst/recover_
What we are concerned with is:
a) how quickly and deliberately we can get our heart rate under control
b) familiarity with rapid intense bursts of exercise and functioning in such a state of elevated heart rate
c) increasing our capacity for intense work , improving our power and getting more work out(i.e. benefit) in less time
I won't confuse things with lactic acid and human growth hormone and the fat loss benefits but........
It's useful in class to as a pre exhaustion method to quickly get the heart rate up, then you can truly test your skills under pressure.
Folks who haven't done pre-exhaustion before challenging themselves…Don't know what they're missing.
Working with this stuff answers the breathing questions pretty quick as to how one controls heart rate through breathing etc.
Scott Sonon is a great source for this work.
