krav_maga_gunHow many of us watch the news lately and are disgusted? All it ever contains is, who killed who; who kidnapped who; and who robbed who. Do you ever wonder what if that happened to you? Dragon Within offers weapons defense tools and weapons defense training. Don’t get caught somewhere with out the knowledge and preparation of how to handle yourself. We use tools in our Krav Maga class to teach students the difference between situations that you should evade or defend. We don’t want to see anyone get into a situation that they have to use these tools, but weapons are a serious thing and need to be taken seriously.

What if you had some crazed maniac in your face with a weapon and you had your children and family to think about? Would you defend yourself, or even know how? I know a lot of us think, “it won’t happen to me”. But the truth is, it could very well happen to you. Why wait for something to happen, why not take a stand and prepare yourself now! This world we live in isn’t getting any easier so we all need to learn to defend ourselves. And this doesn’t mean to go out and bully random strangers just because they may look suspicious. It just means to be prepared in the event that one day you may need the training and skill, and you want to be ready. Or maybe you want your younger children to be ready. We need to take gun shot wounds seriously and educate ourselves on the effects.

Don’t let yourself be a victim of a horrible crime. Learn how to defend yourself and stand up for yourself. Make sure your that person that a criminal can not take advantage of or hurt. Take Krav Maga and learn the tools and techniques to make a stand.

The New Year is here!   Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Krav Maga, and Thai Kickboxing classes are turnt up for the New Year, New Body Fitness Program.  Goals have been set, and sweat has been dripping.  The intensity is there but the question remains; what does it take to keep it there all year long? What will it take to follow through with your New Year’s Resolutions?

1.) BE FOCUSED.  Tony Robbins says, “there is power in clarity.”  Most of the New Year motivation arises out of being focused on what you truly want.  More importantly, knowing why you want it.  You must develop clarity if you are going to follow through with your goals.

It’s been said, “Discipline without direction is drudgery.”  You have to be clear on what you are trying to accomplish, and why you want to accomplish it.  Many people don’t accomplish their goals because they become distracted.  They become caught up in what Stephen Covey calls the “thick of thin things”.  They become distracted by the busyness of life.  They don’t mean to do this, but many times urgent pressing matters takes precedence over things we think can wait till later.  The problem is that we never get around to those things.  We tend to deal with the urgent things of the moment, things that wont matter in five years,  and we never get around to following through on things that will have an impact on the quality of your life five years from now.

If you want to follow through on those goals, I mean really follow through and make this year your best year ever, then step one is to develop clarity. Questions you should write down are:  What do you want to accomplish?  Why do you want to accomplish it?  Be specific.  Don’t just say you want to get in better shape.  How many pounds do you want to lose?  What do you want your body fat to be?  After answering these questions on paper you can show your instructors and together we can help keep you and your fitness program stay focused on accomplishing these goals.

2.) BE FIRED UP!  Motivation gives us the emotional gas in our tank to continually follow through with our goals.  Attitudes are caught before they are ever taught.  The best way to stay motivated is to be around other people who are highly motivated.   By coming to class you are doing this first step by surrounding yourself with other motivated people.  Many people will become discouraged when go home and their motivation to stay fit wears off.  They think something is wrong with them because they don’t “feel” motivated.  Motivation is like taking a warm bath.  Naturally over time, the bath cools off unless you keep adding hot water.  By consistently coming to class and being around highly motivated people, that is like constantly adding hot water.  It charges you up and refuels your emotional tank.

3.) GO THE DISTANCE.  Starting is good. In fact, it’s very good.  The journey to achieving your black belt starts with your first step of showing up to your first class. After coming to class, day by day you begin to realize that finishing is even better.  You have to set your mind on the distance of the race.  Accomplishing your goals is not a sprint.  Its not about how fast you can get there.  Its more about consistently taking specific action over time.

Plan and prepare for the distance of the race.  What adjustments do you need to make in your schedule so that you can CONSISTENTLY be in class over a long period of time.  What adjustments do you need to make in your lifestyle so you can CONSISTENTLY follow through with new eating habits.  You must set your eyes, mind, and spirit on the longevity of the race.   Learn to develop a steady, methodical pace.  Many people who “go all out” on their goals never end up following through, because they commit to a pace they simply can’t maintain.  Realize that accomplishing your goals is more like a long distance race than a sprint.

Martial Arts class is designed to keep you learning new skills so that over time you will move up by achieving a new belt.  Wether its Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Krav Maga, or Thai kickboxing you will earn a higher rank (belt) by regarding the fitness program as a long distance race and consistently coming to class over time.

Let’s go the distance and make 2014 your best year ever!!! 

Dedicated to your success,

-Dragon Within Martial Arts
