So, last week I took my first Krav Maga class at Dragon Within. I thought since I have been working here for about 6 months it would be good to see what everyone does and get a better understanding of the arts. I also had a lot of personal issues to get over. I have a fear of being too close to people, I don’t like being touched or really touching others. I have hardly any confidence in my abilities to do anything. I’m over weight, shy and embarrassed about nearly everything. I have also had a lot of “traumatic” experiences in my life that I have yet to be able to get over.

You see when you have something traumatic happen, with out going into gory details to make people heads spin, it takes something away from you. Some people are strong enough to get over it on their own. Some people let it haunt them and really hold them back from a lot of things. Some people like me, relive the trauma every day and with subtle movements or conversations, it can put you in a bad place mentally. So the old saying goes, you can either run from it or face it. So I suggest to all you out there like me who suffer from living nightmares… just face your fears. You wont regret it.

Enough about me, and the reasons I have for staying away from anything challenging. I decided it was time for me to try to push myself to a whole new limit. It wasn’t about working out, or using my boss for his gym and space. It was about learning. It was about getting over my fear, and maybe gain the confidence I need and stop being so emotional and fearful.

My First DAY

So I walked into my first class, scared out of my mind just praying that I wouldn’t cave. Praying that I wouldn’t cry, or freak out, or give up. I was surprised I was able to jog and shuffle and keep up with everyone. “Okay this isn’t so bad, I got this”…. Then we bear crawled and I felt so out of place. It is an awkward position with your butt in the air, and your crawling across the floor. I was the slowest one in the room. I finished last. But then I got up and stretched out with the group caught my breath and kept going. Then we went over bear hugs. So basically someone has to grab you from behind and you have to get out of it. Great so I get to feel like I’m about to be taken by some huge man. But okay, I keep repeating to myself, I can do this, I can do this. And I did! Slowly at first, but then faster and I hit harder. I felt myself getting angry at the pads and would ram my knee into them like I was hurting the people that have hurt me so many times. Then it was over…. So I thought.

We moved on to the next exercise. I have to stand alone by myself with my eyes closed and let someone attack me. Once again all I could think about was someone sneaking up on me and doing unspeakable things. But I pushed through it. And every time someone hit me with the pad, I would get scared out of my mind and freeze for a second. But then I was instinctively hit, and keep hitting the pad. I felt good to hit it. I let out all the anger. Then it was over. I made it through….

But we weren’t done! Now we have to get in a group and put one person in the middle and get attacked from all over by 4-5 other people. By the time I was in the middle, I was the only girl with 4 men surrounding me. My heart was pounding through my chest. I wanted to roll over and cry right then and there. But I didn’t. I hit and hit again. I booty bumped, and high kneed those men. I was fearless, on the outside. I was praying no one could see my fear that I was holding in. Then I was getting exhausted. It hit me that I’m extremely out of shape. But I wasn’t letting my mind quit on me. I hit those men with every last ounce of energy I had.

I did it. I made it through my first class. It felt so good to finish it. I accomplished my first goal. I was on top of the world. I felt like I could accomplish anything. I was hot, sweaty, and sore but I was pumped. I couldn’t wait to go back and challenge myself again.

I will admit, I went into my car and cried and called my friend who made a very valid point…. I DID IT! I didn’t give up. That’s the key here is you can do anything if you put your mind to it. All of a sudden I felt better and was so confident, I was almost high on life. I had such a burst of energy and thought to myself… I can do anything I want. I can’t wait to go back.

Partner Drills — Three Reasons to Pair Up with Someone New- Oldie but Goodie

Thai Kickboxing

Remember your first day of school? Remember walking into the classroom for the first time and taking a seat? Probably not; but I bet you were sitting in the same seat at the end of the school year? C’mon, you know I’m right. As human beings, we are creatures of habit. If we find something we like, we are hard-pressed to change… even if we know it’s good for us. It’s no different with martial arts training.  In Thai kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/BJJ and Filipino Jiu-Jitsu, we rely on our training partners to help us to learn and get the best possible workout. Naturally when paring up to do partner drills, we gravitate toward people we know, people we like and people have worked with before. However, if you work with the same person every night, you might not be learning as much or progressing as fast as you can. Sure, you may be comfortable… but, maybe, you’re too comfortable. Rather than falling into your comfort zone and training with the same partner every night, you should try to branch out and work with someone new every chance you get. Here’s why: 1. Different people give different energy — people come in all sizes and shapes; all with different temperaments — some are gentile, some are aggressive. If you always train with a smaller, less aggressive person, you’ll never learn how to deal with a more aggressive opponent. Training with different people will give you a feel for how to deal with different people’s energy. 2. You’ll learn faster — training with people of varying skills will help you learn faster. By mixing up your training partners, you have the opportunity to learn from more advanced students and to help coach, teach and mentor the lower ranks. Either way, forcing yourself out of your comfort zone will make adapt and think about what you are doing, making you a better martial artist. 3. You’ll meet new people — our gym is a community. Training with new people will introduce you to new people, you’ll learn a few more names and who knows, maybe even make a friend or two. So next time the instructor calls out “pair up”… what are you going to do? Head toward the same partner as last night, or are you going to branch out and work with someone new? You’ve got everything to gain and nothing to lose by branching out.

Dragon Within is taking a stand against cyber bullying. By bringing your child into Dragon within for martial arts training, you can be sure to notice a change in your child’s attitude. We take bullying seriously and work with our kids to avoid the bully and avoid being the bully.

 

What is Cyber Bullying?

Cyber bullying happens over the Internet, cell phone, text messaging, and any other social media source. People are posting pictures, verbal complaints, and hurt full words to each other. It is a serious problem and cannot, should not, be taken lightly.

How to Protect Your Child…

So there are many side effects to cyber bullying. If you notice your child is having episodes of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, failing in school, violence or suicide thoughts, then it is time to take action. Online bullying can have a huge impact on our kids that children may not be aware of.

Examples of Cyber Bullying

Facebook lies; posts, comments or pictures can all cause a huge impact on ones life. . Ever have someone take a picture at the wrong time and make you look like your doing something your really not? Even Photoshop has come a long way and anyone can be changed into anything now.

Tweets, and Instagram can be just as bad. People are vicious.

If I post something on Facebook about Johnny saying he slept with Mary and now has a disease. People will take that and run with it. Now I know that’s graphic but its true and it happens all the time. People are labeled “slut”, “whore”, and all kinds of names for action they may not even have done or actions that got blown out of proportion.

The same goes for texting. Direct or indirect texting can be hurtful. I can send a text to you calling you names or saying ugly things about you, or I can say it to everyone else and let them attack you.

The Impact of Cyber bullying

Any bullying can have a significant impact on kids and adults. Every child responds to bullying in a different. Bullying triggers each person in a different way. The same bully may not have control or effect on one person the same way as another.

Any child may be subject to harassment online. This may cause a child to feel depressed, or have a fear of school. Kids may keep to themselves. They may even have feelings of suicide or start to fall into the path of drugs and alcohol to block out the feeling and to succumb to peer pressure so the bullying will stop.

What can parents do to help make a difference?

A child’s self-esteem can be severely damaged, causing them to feel worthless, powerless and helpless. This hopelessness experienced by a child who is cyber bullied can have significantly negative effects. As parents we need to take a stand and take action. You can do so by following these simple steps.

  • Make yourself available to your child with open communication and lack of judgment
  • Intervene as soon as possible, by contacting the school, parents or police
  • Assist your child in stopping or reducing the harassment, this could be as simple as deleting a Facebook account
  • Buffer the impact of cyber bullying and help your child cope with the negative emotions he or she experiences
  • Keep close attention to all your child’s social media accounts and texts.
  • If you notice something, say something.

If you start to notice any changes in mood, sleep habits, school interests and activities, or a sudden change of friends or even picking up nervous hobbits like nail biting. Don’t wait, talk to your kids, watch the Facebook, and read the text messages. These are our children and this is their future.

For more questions or concerns, please call or visit Dragon Within. We make a huge effort to changing a child’s life, boosting there confidence and work vigorously to bring an end to bullying.

How do I turn to Krav Maga when my life is on the line?

Turning to Krav Maga with Your Life on the Line

In the darkness of every night lurks a potential danger. You may go your whole life without experiencing the terror of an attacker darting out an alley. Or you might find yourself forced to fight or lose your life when an unstable force comes hurtling your way. How will you respond?

No one wants to expect anything of this sort happening to him or her, but you simply can’t guarantee what will come your way, no matter where you are and what you do. Fortunately, Dragon Within teaches that modern self-defense techniques can empower any man, woman and child to beat back an attack and make it to safety in one piece. Krav Maga is the apotheosis of all the self-defense techniques, a gritty skill set learned on the mean streets of pre-World War II Slovakia – where Fascist gangs roamed and anyone who came from the wrong family could end up with a split skull.

The History:

Imi Lichtenfeld invented the technique known as Krav Maga on these violent streets of Eastern Europe. The balance had swung in the favor of Nazis and he had no choice but defend himself or perish. In those days, Lichtenfeld learned how to counter assailants wielding knives, bats, guns, chains and weapons no had even seen before. It was survival of the strongest – survival of a fighter who could bring unparalleled mental toughness to every encounter and overcome physical limitations with sheer cunning and lightning-quick reflexes.

The Vinidication of a Self-Defense Style

Lichtenfeld survived that ugly period from the mid-1930s all the way up to the Nazi takeover of the region. He made it out of Europe on one of the last refugee boats that took to sea. It was a painful experience, but the proof was indisputable: Lichtenfeld was a survivor and his technique had worked. Upon settling in Israel after the war, the IDF quickly made a place for him in special forces training.

Protection You Can Trust

Incorporating these survival techniques to suit modern times took less refining than you might think. The same concept applies to modern-day muggings. You are walking down the street and you happen to notice a shadow moving in an alleyway. No one is on the street. As you approach, you see movement. An attacker jumps out…are you ready to engage, or do you feel hopeless?

Dragon WIthin teaches that with Krav Maga training under your belt, you will be ready to meet the challenge and repel the attack. Whether you know it or not, quick action in times like these can save your life. You never know when an unhinged attacker will decide he or she wants to jeopardize your life. Knowing how to disarm an assailant in rapid-fire movements could be the difference between waking up in a hospital or walking home unscathed.

Living in fear is no way to respond to the challenges of this world. Krav Maga is not a system designed to get you asserting yourself in violent situations. It is a technique meant to reassure you. It is confidence, pure and simple. When your life is on the line, you’ll know you are ready to respond.

Don’t wait for the moment when you are caught unprepared. Act now and get your free private lesson to see for your self the difference between a prepared person and an unprepared person.

What if my child is a victim of being bullied?

Are your children excited to go back to school? Or are they afraid of being bullied? Here at Dragon Within, we take bullying seriously. We can help teach your child the respect, discipline, and confidence they need in school. 

Let me address what bullying is:

Bullying, in a nut shell, is a form of intimidation or domination toward someone who is perceived as being weaker.It’s almost like we are living in the jungle with a pack of wolves fighting over alfa male. We do all sorts of harmful acts to show our dominance and take what we want by force.  Typically as kids, the only thing we want is make the other child feel humiliated. Usually this is because we are insecure for some reason. There are different types of bullying. While some may think that bullying mainly consists only of physical domination, the fact of the matter is that there are verbal and emotional forms of bullying as well. And, with the rise of the Internet, there are now instances of children being bullied online through email, chatrooms and on Facebook. It is even possible to be bullied through text messaging on a cell phone. Chid bullying can happen in any of these forms. It’s not like in the 90’s when you had to go knock door to door to bully someone, now they make it easy for you.

For the most part, boys prefer to use physical intimidation tactics in their bullying. They will use physical aggression to force others to do what they want, or to feel in charge of a situation. Something about testosterone I would imagine. Girls, on the other hand, typically use more of a subtle approach. They stick to teasing, name calling, and passive aggressive methods. None the less it still hurts the same.

so how many ways can someone bully your child?

So why do kids bully other kids?

They may be abused or neglected at home. They may not have parents that get involved in their life or well being. And how well do our school spread knowledge about bullying and taking a stand?

Let’s break down some numbers shall we?

  • 60% of 4th through 8th graders report being victims of bullying.
  • 86% of students said, “other kids picking on them, making fun of them or bullying them” causes teenagers to turn to lethal violence in the schools.
  • 282,000 students are physically attacked in secondary schools each month.
  • Suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people, resulting in about 4,400 deaths per year, according to the CDC. For every suicide among young people, there are at least 100 suicide attempts. Over 14 percent of high school students have considered suicide, and almost 7 percent have attempted it.
  • Bully victims are between 2 to 9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims, according to studies by Yale University
  • A study in Britain found that at least half of suicides among young people are related to bullying
  • 10 to 14 year old girls may be at even higher risk for suicide, according to the study above
  • According to statistics reported by ABC News, nearly 30 percent of students are either bullies or victims of bullying, and 160,000 kids stay home from school every day because of fear of bullying
  • One third of teens reported being bullied while at school
  • About 20 percent of teens had been made fun of by a bully, 18 percent of teens had rumors or gossip spread about them, 11 percent were physically bullied, such as being shoved, tripped, or spit on, 6 percent were threatened, 5 percent were excluded from activities they wanted to participate in, 4 percent were coerced into something they did not want to do, and 4 percent had their personal belongings destroyed by bullies
  • 4 percent of teens in this study reported being the victims of cyber bullying
  • Most bullying occurred inside the school, with smaller numbers of bullying incidents occurring outside on the school grounds, on the school bus, or on the way to school
  • Only about a third of bully victims reported the bullying to someone at school
  • About 2 of every 3 bully victims were bullied once or twice during the school year, 1 in 5 were bullied once or twice a month, and about 1 in 10 were bullied daily or several times a week
  • In this study, females and white students reported the most incidents of being the victims of bullying
  • 44 percent of middle schools reported bullying problems, compared to just over 20 percent of both elementary and high schools

Signs of child bullying

Are you like many other parents out there who are concerned for our children’s safety in school? There are many signs that indicate your child is a victim of bullying.

Also try to be alert on if your child is the one doing the bullying at school:

If your child is the one being bullied, you need to help them as soon as possible. Don’t wait. Try talking to them.

  1. Let them know that you can go together, to school authorities to see what can be done in terms of mediation, and in terms of increased attention paid on the school grounds.
  2. Encourage the child to avoid the child bully, and seek help from a teacher or trusted adult when necessary.
  3. Practice being assertive and asking the bully to leave the child alone.
  4. Encourage your child to be with true friends – bullies are less likely to pick on children who are in a group.
  5. take up a martial arts class to teach confidence, self discipline, respect, and much more.

Please help Dragon Within Martial Arts spread the word about bullying. Talk to as many people as you can. We are hosting an anti-bully workshop that is free to your child. We want to help teach every kid the importance of knowing the signs of bullying. We need to stop this and together we can.

What do Hilary Swank, Ashton Kutcher and Angelina Jolie have in common? Why, they all study Krav Maga (pronounced krahv muh-GAH), of course. Celebrities and serious fitness enthusiasts alike have embraced Krav Maga, an Israeli style of self-defense, as a fun, safe and effective alternative to fitness classes and gym routines. Starting on November 7th, 2011, you won’t have to go to Hollywood (or Israel) to learn it – Dragon Within Mixed Martial Arts (DWMMA) in Salem Massachusetts, the Northshore’s premier martial arts academy is bringing Krav Maga to Salem Ma. Dennis Cregier, Owner and Head Instructor of DWMMA, is pleased to offer this opportunity to Northshore residents: “whether it’s self-defense or fitness, we strive to offer the best quality martial arts training to help our student’s achieve their personal goals.” Developed by the Israeli Defense Forces and translated as “contact combat”, Krav Maga has long been renowned as a complete, extremely effective, self-defense system. Emphasizing, both offensive and defense techniques, Krav Maga teaches students both self-defense techniques as well as situational awareness – that is, recognizing and avoiding a potentially dangerous situation before it turns violent. In addition to the no-nonsense approach to self-defense, Krav Maga is a fun way to get seriously fit. Using rigorous calisthenics, punching bags and other boxing equipment, Krav Maga works different muscle groups every training session. With a varied workout, students will build muscle and shed pounds quickly, but remain challenged and engaged as they progress.

To learn more about Krav Maga or any of our Other programs we offer here at DWMMA; we are hosting a FREE Krav Maga workshop for those who preregister and Open House on

We’ll have live demonstrations, an hour-long hands-on workshop and personal consultations with instructors… not to mention free food and drinks as well.*” Krav Maga classes begin on November 7th and will be offered on Monday through Thursday at DWMMA’s 11 Franklin Street location.

There are many different reasons for training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or any type of martial arts–whether it’s for fitness, confidence, self-defense, competition or self-expression; each individual starts for his or her own reason.  Whatever it may be the motivates you to practice martial arts; I believe that deep down inside, everybody would like to feel that they could defend themselves if they had to.  Self-defense is one of the deepest roots and traditions of martial arts. 

So, how could practicing an art like Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, where no strikes are involved, teach you how to defend yourself in a situation where there are no rules?
The benefits of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/BJJ, lie in the nature of the training and the aliveness of the art.  A skilled practitioner of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/BJJ, is used to feeling the pressure of an opponent, comfortable in physically stressful situations and can manipulate somebody else’s energy.

The sheer adrenaline and stress of a street altercation can be very shocking to your system as you undergo the “fight or flight” response.   I belive that after training and understanding Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/BJJ, you will be able to maintain your composure and quick thinking in the high stress situation of a street fight, because it sharpens the body and the mind a very unique way.

 

Learn Self-Defense, Gain Confidence and Get in Great Shape. Discover how anyone can Train and Enjoy Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/BJJ,  regardless of your Age, Fitness level or Experience Level.

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” Winston Churchill

When you start training in martial arts such as: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/BJJ, Thai Kickboxing, Filipino Jiu-Jitsu or Mixed Martial Arts/MMA; two very important things are commitment and dedication. You have to be committed to putting the time in to earn your black belt, and stay dedicated to your training week after week.
With the hectic pace of life today, many practitioners run into problems when “life gets in the way”. In order to reap the most benefits from your training, one must have balance of the responsibilities of everyday life and a healthy training regimen.
When day-to-day affairs feel overwhelming; remember that your martial arts training is very important because it gives you the strength to deal with your problems and also alleviates the stress and tension created from life.  So, when life seems too busy, the last thing you want to do is let your training go wayside.

Warrior: MMA Mixed Martial Arts

 

The movie, Warrior, is about two brothers facing the fight of a lifetime – and the wreckage of their broken family – within the high-stakes world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighting.

Tommy Riordan, an ex-Marine haunted by a tragic past, returns to his hometown of Pittsburgh.   He enlists his father, a recovered alcoholic and his former coach, to train him for an MMA/Mixed Martial Arts, tournament awarding the biggest purse in the history of the sport.  As Tommy blazes a fierce path towards the title prize–his brother, Brendan, a former MMA/Mixed Martial Arts fighter, who is unable to make ends meet as a public school teacher, returns to the amateur ring to provide for his family.
Even though years have passed, recriminations and past betrayals keep Brendan bitterly estranged from both Tommy and his father. But when Brendan’s unlikely rise as an underdog sets him on a collision course with Tommy, the two brothers must finally confront the forces that tore them apart, all the while waging the most intense, winner-takes-all battle of their lives.
