Pro Point 3
Pro Point

Pro Point's third event will take place on January 30th, featuring a set match and an eight-man 170-179 lbs. tournament.

Due to a previous commitment, Pro Point 2 champion Jack Felton of Team All Stars is unavailable to take on Team Straight Up's Bailey Murphy, the Lightweight Point Fighting Champion of the Black Belt Magazine World Sport Karate Rankings, at Pro Point 3. Instead, point fighting fans will get to enjoy an exciting matchup between strong contenders Jason Bourelly of Team KTOC and Ryan George of Team Dojo Elite - Power.

George and Bourelly will both be seeking vengeance in the Pro Point arena, as both men placed runner-up to the likes of Murphy and Felton at the first two Pro Point events, respectively. Bourelly is a veteran point fighter who will have an advantage in experience, but George is the younger, more explosive fighter who will be looking to best Bourelly with his speed and athleticism.

As if the main event wasn't enough, Pro Point 3 will also feature another eight-man tournament, reminiscent of their previous events. The bracket features a great deal of star power including the #2 ranked heavyweight point fighting contender in the world by the Black Belt Magazine Rankings Kevin Walker of Team All Stars, Kristhian Rivas of Team Legend, Brandon Ballou of Team Straight Up, and Devin Hopper of Team Dojo Elite - Power. The rest of the roster for the event features a mix of established veterans and promising up-and-comers including Justin Johnson, Niko Negron, Henry Ruiz, and Michael Reyes. With this much depth, it is nearly impossible to predict what will happen when all of this talent goes to battle.

Tune in on Saturday, January 30th at 7:00 PM EST for an action-packed evening of point fighting entertainment on OSS TV.

How will you perform at the moment of truth?

What's going to happen to you physically and emotionally in a real fight where you could be injured or killed? Will you defend yourself immediately, hesitate during the first few critical seconds of the fight, or will you be so paralyzed with fear that you won't be able to move at all? The answer is - you won't know until you can say, "Been there, done that." However, there is a way to train for that fearful day.

This week I've asked Robert Borisch to give me a birds eye view on his marketing strategy.

Robert is the head sensei and owner of Tri-City Judo a well-established commercial judo school in Kennewick, Washington. I am very impressed with his highly successful business. Unlike BJJ, TKD, karate, and krav maga, in judo we tend to teach in community centers, YMCA's, and other not for profit outlets. So when I find a for profit judo model that is growing by leaps and bounds, it intrigues me. Below are Robert's raw and uncensored comments spoken like a true commercial martial arts school entrepreneur / owner.
