Fighting Arts Health Lab

"Where Desire, Knowledge and Execution Intersect to Forge Unrivaled Combat Arts Performance"

Fighting Arts Health Lab is the premier strength and conditioning, nutrition, recovery, injury management and lifestyle informational resource that helps align the body, mind and spirit of combat athletes who aspire to perform at the highest levels in their Fighting Art of choice.

Strength & Conditioning

Elite athletes consistently test higher because they understand endurance, speed and power are key markers for high performers. Understanding the science behind enhanced Strength and Conditioning is the first step to achieving it. This section will not only provide the foundational elements but the associated tools as well.


Hippocrates once said, "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be they food." It is a fact that a healthy body starts from the inside. Our Nutrition section is designed to provide the busiest person ideas on not only how to create an effective and efficient nutritional approach but to create and manage it with ease.


From time to time we all need to recharge our battery. The Training Recovery section provides an understanding between the link between rest and performance. Not providing the body adequate time to heal from continuous strenuous physical exertion over time can negatively impact performance.

Injury Management

It is inevitable that at some point in one's martial art career that an injury will occur. Your first point of contact should always be your medical doctor. The Injury Management will provide information on different parts of the body, common injuries and treatments.

What We're Reading

Written by the 17th-century Zen master Takuan Soho (1573–1645), The Unfettered Mind is a book of advice on swordsmanship and the cultivation of right mind and intention. It was written as a guide for the samurai Yagyu Munenori, who was a great swordsman and rival to the legendary Miyamoto Musashi.

Soho was a giant in the history of Zen; he was also a gardener, calligrapher, poet, author, adviser to samurai and shoguns, and a pivotal figure in Zen painting. He was known for his brilliance and acerbic wit. In these succinct and pointed essays.
