Founder and Publisher of www.realfighting.com
WR Mann is the founder and publisher of www.realfighting.com, the leading reality-based site on the Internet. He was one of the early advocates of Reality-Based Training, developing one of the first RBT programs before most people even knew what the term meant.
WR started training in martial arts as a child in Europe and continued his quest while living in Asia for several years; studying many of the major systems of Japan, Korea, China and the Philippines. He also practiced fight sports such as: judo, BJJ, boxing, muaythai and fencing.
WR currenly teaches the Realfighting Reality-Based program in Europe, Asia and America. His particular specialty is counter-knife training, with influences derived from James Keating, Raymond Floro, Western fencing, various Filipino styles and his own personal experience.
His unarmed RBT program consists of a unique blend of BJJ, wrestling, boxing, and muaythai, sans the rules; combatives is an integral component as well. WR still trains in mixed martial arts under John Danaher (at Renzo Gracie’s).
