In this exclusive video, Richard "Mack" Machowicz discusses and demonstrates targeting principles during an outdoor photo shoot for Black Belt magazine!

Richard "Mack" Machowicz, an ex-Navy SEAL and former host of the cable-TV series Future Weapons, as well as a student of taekwondo, muay Thai, kali, boxing, Brazilian jiu-jitsu and Paul Vunak's jeet kune do,discusses the three dynamic elements of combat (movements, weapons and targets) in this exclusive footage shot on location by Black Belt magazine. "Rarely if ever will you experience combat," Richard "Mack" Machowicz says, "and most likely you will never see combat in a literal sense, but the principles that make for effectiveness in battle are relevant to the daily challenges you face." It's his way of telling people that the benefits of what he's about to explain extend far beyond fighting. After interrogating Richard "Mack" Machowicz for 10 minutes, however, I learn that it would be a huge mistake to dismiss him as a guy who uses self-defense to preach self-help. It would be just as erroneous to brush him off as just another retired military man who doesn't know that the skills civilians need are radically different from the skills soldiers need. Twenty minutes into our interview, it's clear that Mack is a martial artist who can throw down and a guy who sees the big picture with respect to violence. Which is probably why he's so successful at what he does.
