B.E.T. DVD Sneak Peak #2 (Multiple Attackers)

The information in this DVD (coming soon) is going to blow you away.  You will never look at self defense the same way ever again!

B.E.T. “Target Based” Self Defense System DVD (coming soon):  The only self defense lesson you will ever need!

Multiple Attacker Scenario. You must defeat each attacker as they come. You cannot realistically “fight” each attacker. You will get tired and you will get stabbed or killed. You need to neutralize each attacker or you don’t have a chance. Most systems do not attempt to teach you how to defeat multiple attackers because they don’t have a clue as to how to do it. How do you think it will work out if you take an attacker to the ground and their buddies size 12 boots are repeatedly stomping on your head? In my system, we always assume multiple attackers with weapons. Does your self defense system?

I have spent thousands of dollars on self defense DVD’s, and E-Books and I can say, without a doubt, that this DVD is going to be the most intense, myth busting and realistic self defense DVD on the market.  We have completed filming for the NEW B.E.T. “Target Based” Self Defense System DVD “The only self defense lesson you will ever need!” How to survive a worst case scenario attack on yourself or your family. It is now off to editing which takes a long time to complete.  The following clip includes raw and uncut footage from a 2nd camera that was there during the DVD shoot.

Row Training with Coach David Alexander

Visit for more strength & conditioning tips.

This is a unique kind of barbell row. The gym I train at (Xtreme Fitness San Juan Island) has a t-bar row but the receiving end for the weights is too small. I would need to put on 45’s and then the range of motion will suffer. So this was my solution. I put on 35’s so I can add weight and still get a good range of motion. I needed to weight one side of the barbell or it would rise off the ground (see in video). I do this lift once a week and add 5 pounds every time. Have fun! Coach David Alexander

Fight Scene Thugs needed…

To all,

Stunt coordinator/director/producer Ken Clark from Action Horizons Production ( is looking to showcase my unique B.E.T. “Target Based” Self Defense System in a real life action shot.  If my style of self defense looks good in the shot, Ken might fly me out to Indonesia to help coordinate fight scenes on their next movie.  The scene will consist of 7 or 8 thugs attacking me at the same time and I will be “neutralizing” the attackers.  We need a few more guys to round out the cast for the shoot.  Ken will be directing and setting up the stunts utilizing my unique form of self defense.  It will start in the parking lot and then as I try to escape into a warehouse, the thugs follow and try to kill me.  Little do they know, I am an expert in B.E.T. Self Defense and end up taking out all the bad guys.  Sounds cool right?  If you want to be in the shot, please email me at  Thanks, Coach David

By the way, he is also recruiting for the Universal Studios Singapore Waterworld show if you’re interested.  Here is a description from his site:

WATERWORLD casting for Universal Studios Singapore begins in September. Please have your submissions in by then.

Check out our casting video and see if you have what it takes!

Say goodbye to gluten: Over 200 clinically confirmed reasons to avoid wheat

(Do you want an easy way to start the Paleo Diet?  Try David’s Diet ”Lose Weight Fast!  No Exercise Required!!!  Includes the FREE BONUS ‘How I Lost 23 Pounds in 30 Days Eating Fast Food’).

(NaturalNews) This title is the same as a recent It contains a list of over 200 health problems, with celiac disease at the top and including many more not normally associated with gluten intolerance.

The author and founder of, Sayer Ji, prefers the term gluten toxicity to gluten sensitivity or gluten intolerance… “in order to shift the focus away from the victim back to the aggressor, the gluten itself.”

Sayer Ji’s article lists all the disorders linked to gluten. They are hyperlinked to articles and abstracts of clinical studies recorded in MedLine since 1971.

Explaining the attack on wheat and other grains

Negative reports on wheat and other grains have risen considerably in the past decade. The dramatic rise of celiac disease, a chronic gut inflammation that destroys intestinal villi (tiny tubes) responsible for absorbing nutrients, has been a major focus.

The gluten toxicity that brings on Celiac disease and other autoimmune reactions is mostly from peptides contained in gluten known as gliadin proteins, which damage the intestinal tract.

In addition to Celiac disease, which if undetected leads to malnutrition that creates other diseases, gluten toxicity can result in several other manifestations of poor health, including chronic fatigue and mental disorders.

Lectins, sticky proteins common to all plants for self defense, are a prominent feature of wheat germ agglutinin (WGA). In addition to flattening out intestinal villi and causing Celiac, they can penetrate gut linings and create leaky gut.

Once lectins get into the blood stream, they can bind to leptin receptors, blocking the leptin sensitivity that lets you know you’ve had enough to eat, creating a sluggish metabolism, and disrupting insulin balance. In other words, it leads to obesity and diabetes.

So how did the “staff of life” become a weed of disease?

For starters, wheat is not the same today. It has been hybrid over time to resist fungus, grow more quickly, and be more pliable for industrial bread baking. 50 years or so ago, wheat contained only five percent gluten. Today, it is 50 percent gluten.

The food industry’s concern for production efficiency and perception of consumer demands has focused on the bottom line with the usual disregard to the negative health consequences of fellow humans. Breads and other baked goods are hastily produced with additives and short cuts that are actually toxic.

In the UK, some of Europe, and North America, slightly different high speed methods of baking evolved over time. By adding “improvers” with usually toxic additives and mixing the dough violently, loaves of bread could be baked, cooled, and packaged within a few short hours.

Agricultural resources then sped up the hybrid process for wheat to accommodate the baking industry’s mechanical requirements of pliable proteins, leading to the 10-fold increase of wheat’s gluten since that time.

This situation has permeated almost all nations. There are some exceptions; for instance, most of Europe doesn’t permit chemically bleaching flour to produce white bread. They use sunlight to “bleach” wheat.

Having your cake and eating it too

Not all of us are prepared to go strictly Paleo and exclude all grains and legumes. Some of us still prefer not to eat animals, and if the food supply bottom falls out, many aren’t ready and able to kill and skin deer or other animals to survive.

Grains such as rice and dried legumes are easy to hoard and use for survival if the store shelves become empty overnight. The common concern for rice and legumes is phytates or phytic acid, which can block minerals from being absorbed in our bodies.

Overnight soaking, a prerequisite for cooking dry beans, has been known to minimize phytates, or phytic acid. Rice can be soaked overnight as well. The process of cooking itself reduces phytic acid.

Using sprouted wheat flour can ameliorate some of WGA’s toxicity. Baking with sourdough starters instead of normal baker’s yeast can help also, while combining both may be optimum ( It appears Whole Foods bakery does so.

Wheat’s gluten toxicity is reduced by sourdough starters properly fermented for 24 hours or more. A University of Alberta Canadian cereal microbiologist, Michael Gaenzle, suggests that sourdough bread, homemade or from a trusted bakery, may be at least a solution for gluten toxicity.

He referred to a study where recovered Celiac patients suffered no consequences from eating fermented (sourdough) wheat bread for two days. Those who ate regularly produced wheat bread did have a relapse.

The Shovel Hook is the punch that comes in between the hook and the uppercut. The baseball analogy would be a slider. I like to target the liver with this punch. Make sure to drive your fist through your opponent in order to compress the liver to cause the desired effect.
