Self Defense Myths

Posted: June 17, 2019

There is a lot of information out there about protecting yourself, some are great tips, others are useless and some are downright dangerous! I wanted to discuss this today as I was watching a commercial of Dr. OZ where someone was showing the "keys" as a weapon for self defense tactic. 

The use of keys as a weapon by placing the key ring in your palm and the key tips out from between your fingers is very flawed. 

First think of the lagistics of being suddenly attacked and then you go into your purse or pocket to find your keys. Then you take those keys and put them into your palm, keep in mind most people key chains contain MANY keys for a person to fit their fist around. Now you need to arrange the keys so that there is one or two keys pertruding between each pair of fingers. See the lagistics with this plan? This will take you much time and effort to prepare for, if you have that much time why did you allow yourself to continue to be in that situation? Why did the attacker allow so much time for preperation? Never thought about it, well give it a go, put your keys in hand and arrange those keys into Wolverine's claws. Was it easy and quick? Now punch something hard like a bone covered in skin (A human) and see how it feels.

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.” – Nelson Mandela “A brave man, a real fighter is not measured by how many times he falls, but how many times he stands up.” – Rickson Gracie “It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe.” – Muhammad Ali “It’s not about being better than the other. It’s about being better than you were yesterday.”


The price of bullying and how martial arts changes everything!

Posted: June 12, 2019

Helping a child to become a black belt is the #1 thing you can do to stop them from being bullied. Becoming a black belt reduces the risk of a child being bullied by 67%, more than any other form of bullying prevention program out there today!

27% of all kids who come to a martial art school are bullied and the parents are only aware of this 4% of the time!

The long term effects of being bullied are similar to the effects of domestic violence, child abuse and sexual harassment. Wow, this is some interesting data for a severe issue effecting 1 in 3 kids today.


10 Rules for Summer Safety

Sun Protection and Heat Exhaustion

Protect Baby When in the Sun

First, avoid being in the sun between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., and stay in a shaded area as much as possible when outside. Dress baby in a hat, sunglasses, and clothing made with a tight weave. For babies 6 months and older, use sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 (SPF 30 and higher is even better) that offers both UVA and UVB protection. For babies younger than 6 months, if adequate shade isn't available, put sunscreen in small amounts on exposed surfaces of skin. Always apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before going outside -- even on cloudy days -- and reapply it every two hours. Even waterproof sunscreen loses its effectiveness after about 80 minutes of swimming.
