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.

Brazilian  Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is an enormously popular martial art. This is why you see so many BJJ schools are opening all over the world. Of course, the presence of a school is not the main indication of its value. The number of students enrolled in the school is. When you look closer at these students, you will see many training as frequently as possible and others train when their schedule permits. Since BJJ schools often offer unlimited training per month, there is a lot of flexibility available in terms of how often a student can train.

But, how many days a week should a student train? This is an important question that needs to be asked and answered. There are active and athletic students that train virtually every day of the week and there are also those that have to train far less because training too often leads to them becoming sore and somewhat broken down.

Really, you do not want to become sore or too beat up to train. That does no one any good. When you are over-trained, you end up missing days of class. Does that help your ability to progress in BJJ? Absolutely not!

Again, different people’s bodies will react in a completely different manner to their training regimen. There is, however, a safe medium that you can follow in order to be sure that you avoid over-training. That medium would be playing it safe and training about three days a week.

These three days should not be consecutive. The reason for this is you want to at least one rest day in between the three workout days because your body will need time to recuperate and heal. When you do not get the proper amount of rest, the body will start to break down. This is where all those aches and pains come from. Those that are older BJJ practitioners will be more than familiar with such pains which is why they might be more willing to take such breaks than younger BJJ’ers. However, just because you are young does not mean you are invulnerable. Over-training can affect anyone at any age.

There are going to be those serious minded BJJ players that want to train each and every single day. They reason they wish to do so is not all that difficult to figure out. They just want to become very good at the art of BJJ. Here is a little news for those that have such desires in mind: frequency does not always equate with quality.

The true value of the class will be in the quality of the instruction combined with a good attitude for learning. In short, you need to enroll in a good class and then make the most out of it when you are in the class. This means you should py very close attention and ask pertinent questions when they arise. (Of course, you should ask them at the appropriate time) Follow these very simple steps and you will find it is a lot easier to get the most out of your three day a week training plan.
