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.

Martial arts has always been used for athletes to compete via combat, but is also a fantastic way for people to exercise. One of the most popular martial arts today, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ), is a multidimensional martial art that can really put your body through a tough work-out. Unlike standard exercise routines, you don’t have to exercise each individual muscle group; instead, you merely spend 20 minutes “rolling” (the term used for practicing, or sparring). After just 20 minutes of rolling with a partner and engaging in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, your entire body will have received a work out that would have otherwise taken you hours.

Because most of BJJ is spent on the ground, you will end up putting lots of weight and pressure on your feet, knees, and thighs; especially if you are in top position. On the bottom, you may think that you have it easy being that you can lay on your back, but this is not the case. High-level BJJ practitioners do not in fact lay flat on their back. As relaxing as it may seem, this is a very bad flaw in technique. You want to be perched up, at least slightly, in order to spring into action. This requires a lot of core strength sourcing from your abs to remain in ready position when on your back.

In other positions it’s your arms that will get a work out. Much of BJJ comes down to “hand-fighting” which is the strategical battle that goes on between you and your opponents hands. Constantly fighting your opponent’s upper-body strength while attempting to maintain proper wrist control is a very physically demanding task.

Even though most BJJ matches are not spent on the feet, it does physically pose equally as intense. You will often tie up with your opponent in search of takedowns that could come from various wrestling techniques, or perhaps a variety of different Judo throws. Whichever means you seek out to attempt to get your opponent on the ground will prove physically demanding. It’s not easy throwing something your size and weight around; especially when it is fighting back.

BJJ provides an all-in-one package for those wanting to combine core workouts with upper-body and most importantly, a lot of fun. BJJ not only exercises the body, but also the mind. Most BJJ matches are fought as if they are chess-matches; it comes to sharp technique and proper positioning that wins or finishes matches. If you’re looking for a martial art that will benefit your body in multiple ways, BJJ is an excellent choice.
