Nice! Congratulations...I've been watching the Fighting Folders series, and wow, the depth of Mr. Janich's knowledge is amazing, as well as his attitude. Very well deserved

This might be a very bad idea. What if the attacker is diabetic this would be utterly devastating. Also the choke hazards involved and I would just hate to see good cake wasted on an attacker. No doubt icing in the eyes is quite disabling. Congrats mike I will attend one of your seminars one day. You should visit louisiana soon.

Thanks to everyone for your kind words and support. The Black Belt Hall of Fame is a great honor and I'm very proud to have been recognized by them.

As for cake as a weapon, I guess none of you have ever eaten my sister's cooking...

Stay safe,

Mike

I'd love to attend the Milwaukee training but have spent too many weekends away from home.

Congratulations, Mr. Janich!

If you are ever in south Texas and want a cake that is guaranteed not to be outlawed by the Geneva Conventions, drop me a PM. My wife is one hell of a baker. :cool:

Having taken one of Mike's classes, and having experiences many martial arts teachers in the past, I can only concur with Black Belt Magazine! Congrats Mike!
