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.

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.
