It is an understatement to say the flood of information (and mis-information) on the Internet is very confusing.
There are some very credible training resources online which are often almost blotted out by hype and faddish nonsense.
Unconventional training is not exempt from this any more than mainstream fitness.
The general public often falls prey to the flashy and unfounded promises of unscrupulous advertisers. They just know, and often are too lazy to do their “homework” to find the quality coaches & trainers.
People sometimes group things together in an attempt to simplify things.
Take for example mace training.
Is mace flow like a mace completion at the Vintage Strength Games?
No, not at all. The only similarity is that they both use maces
It is important for people to know what they would like to learn and why.
Here’s another example.
Is a mace certification the same thing as a macefit.com certification?
Once again, the answer is no.
A mace certification teaches the mace.
Macefit teaches a broader spectrum of training using different types of equipment.
