A.1__1340131411_4520So one of our students just shared this article that FOX7 News wrote. This is the kind of story that makes me sick. A woman in Jamaica Plain was going for a walk in broad daylight and was sexually assaulted and robbed at knife point! Fox7 reported “JAMAICA PLAIN, Mass. (WHDH) – People in Jamaica Plain are on alert after a daytime attack in the Arnold Arboretum Wednesday.” This is ridiculous. But my student here couldn’t have said it any better, “all women should learn Krav Maga“. And she couldn’t be more right.
Fox7 news also say that “Boston Police are increasing patrols after a woman said she was sexually assaulted and robbed at knife-point by a man on a bike around 11 a.m. Wednesday.” Great but there are only so many officers and so much ground to cover. So please all women and men and children, be safe no matter where you go. Prepare yourself for anything. Dragon Within is working diligently to make sure all our students are mentally and physically prepared for any attack at any time. We are teaching our students the importance of surroundings and being aware of them. We teach them to always find a way out. We also strive to teach the difference between attacks and knowing when to use them and how. We don’t want anyone being seriously injured just want our students to know how to defend themselves. It can be a scary world out there. Krav Maga self defense teaches the importance of self defense. At Dragon Within we have a unique way of teaching. We teach ways of getting out of situations such as knife locks and gun use. We can only hope that no one has to use them. But just as this story proves, it can happen to anyone, anywhere at any time. You just never know.

Police say the suspect is described as a black male in his 20s. Anyone who was in the park at the same time as the attack is asked to call the Boston Police Department at 1 (800) 494-TIPS.

combat-healthOkay let’s face it, we have all had confrontation at some point or another. We have all had that irritating person in line that picks a fight for no reason. Or have had to deal with a client that we would love to take outside and teach them a lesson. Everyday we face these people. But how is it we don’t act on our instincts? In the animal kingdom, animals fight all the time to the death. But as humans, we are expected to hold it together.

Truth is, it doesn’t always work. As humans we sometimes don’t hold back our manors. We act on instinct to kill. And some of us do just that. Then someone else evaluates them and has every excuse in the book as to why they did it. Okay great, but now how are the rest of us supposed to just deal with that? I mean it’s a vicious cycle. We witness ones family member be attacked and we want to attack someone else. So instead of giving in to these disobedient humans, we could always learn to adapt. We could learn to defend ourselves, while building discipline and confidence to be able to handle ourselves. And that is what Dragon Within aims to do.

Take Krav Maga for example. Krav Maga means contact combat in Hebrew. It is a self-defense based martial art. It takes a little from boxing, muay thai, judo, jiu-jitsu, grappling, and wrestling. Great now you are all wandering what in the world is all that? In simpler words, this style of martial art taught at Dragon Within, was created for the Israeli military. So an entire military system was using this way to defend them selves in battle. Of course over time it was adopted and re-evaluated for a more civilian appropriate approach. This doesn’t mean it was changed in a way that made it less effective.

Dragon Within is known for teaching Krav Maga as a well-known stand in neutralizing any threat while implementing defensive and offensive maneuvers towards aggression. In simpler words, you will learn to avoid the strike before it presents itself and how to counteract the strike if it is thrown at you. Dragon Within teaches students to avoid confrontation in Krav Maga. If it is not possible to do so, Dragon within promotes finishing a fight as quickly and effectively as possible. Attacks are taught to aim for vulnerable areas of the body. At Dragon Within, students are taught to defend themselves against many different styles of attacks and how to counter act them in the most efficient way. Training at Dragon Within can also cover situational awareness and how to be clear of ones surroundings and how to prepare for them.

So now your wandering is the world really that bad? Well why take the chance. Take the time and have the dedication to mentally prepare yourself for what is really out there in the world. We are only evolved animals that have not lost all of our animal instincts.

self-defensebwDragon Within would like to take a moment to announce that Miss Nevada, a 4th degree black belt, took the win for Miss America 2014! Good for her, and she did it while standing up martial arts and believing in all that it stands for. But why the backlash? She stated in her interview that colleges are afraid to come out to the public when it comes to woman being assaulted so they brush it under the rug. How truthful she is. And she stands for women defending themselves even when no one else will. In fact statistic’s show that 19% of college girls are sexually assaulted and that the colleges do almost nothing about it.

 

At Dragon Within we agree with Miss Nevada. We think that all women should know how to take care of themselves. Woman should never get caught in a situation they can’t handle. We teach Krav Maga for just that reason. We want to keep everyone safe and well disciplined. From peer pressure to bullying to flat out being attacked, woman need to realize that they don’t have to be alone. With Krav Maga self defence techniques, woman will learn the striking and defense they will need in life to keep themselves out of trouble. Dragon Within even does private lessons to make sure students have a handle on the techniques of Krav Maga. No woman or student or child should be left to defend themselves, but unfortunately we can not change what is going in this world today. The only thing we can do is make sure each and every person is prepared for it and knows how to have discipline and how to react in any given situation. You can not change a person, you can only change yourself to get the reaction out of the person you want. And that reaction is to get them to leave you alone.
