  • Self Defence Tips for Women

    Self Defence Tips for Women

    1. React Immediately 2. Resist 3. Avoid Crime Scene #2 4. Never Give Up Crime scene #2 is the where a victim is taken after the initial crime (“come with me,” “get in the car”). The second “crime scene” is, statistically, ALWAYS worse than the first “crime scene.” This means that if you’re ever confronted with a bad situation —you NEVER, EVER GO WITH SOMEONE to a second place or location. Never. If you have to fight or escape or raise a commotion to get attention, you do it right where it happens. Never go with someone, get in someone’s car, or allow yourself to be taken —to a ....

  • Martial Arts - its NOT about violence

    Martial Arts - its NOT about violence


    Just the other day a parent asked me if she asked “Do I think that Martial Arts classes promote violent behaviour in young boys?” I thought it was a fine question. Yes, there have been a few cases (very few) of students “playing martial arts” with friends, the same way they play as their favourite superheroes, but I’ve never heard of the play being malicious or hurtful. I do, however, hear many stories of my young students using the kind of restraint we talk about in almost every class. I hear many stories of the young people in my program –and other martial arts schools ....

    The Philosophy Behind the Martial Arts
    * One of the most priceless gifts of martial arts practice is to get to know yourself internally and externally. * Our main goal is to use the body to reach and learn to master the mind. Once you have mastered your mind you will have no desire to ever fight. * In real martial arts, even when faced with the situation, you can stay calm and cantered and make the best choices in that moment. * Martial arts training helps us learn to deal with adversity. * Through the practice we become aware of what we think and why.

  • Adrenaline can be your friend AND your enemy

    I love the work of Rory Miller, the author of “Mediations on Violence” , in my opinion the best Martial Arts/Real World book out there. I came across this article by Rory and think its absolutely spot on. Most people can’t fight ‘cold’. They need the emotional edge of fear or anger to get over the taboos involved in hurting people. Not everyone, but almost everyone. Even very experienced fighters, whether good guys or bad guys, want to be “in the zone” just like any other athlete. Part of being in the zone is an optimum level of adrenalization. I’ll use adrenaline throughout this as easy shorthand, but know that ....
