Board Breaking

Let’s start with a laugh, I like to say I’ve never met a board I didn’t like…

Well anyone who has attempted to break a board has experienced this at least once!  Lose your mental focus, feel fear or uncertainty, lose your physical focus and that will probably be you jumping around screaming!

Focus, this is the real trick in the Martial Arts or any fighting art, to much focus (see above) can be a bad thing.  While you may gain power you lose your situational awareness.  Instead of focus you need to train to stay relaxed, aware of your situation and fluid, this will give you the ability to react without the time delay of planned movements.  When I spar I rarely look at my opponent, in other words I do not focus on the person I am fighting.  Instead I relax my focus and heighten my awareness of the entire sparring situation, taking in their whole body or multiple attackers.  This is almost the opposite of what most students are taught when breaking boards.  Yet relaxing your focus can accomplish the same thing with the benefit of not getting tunnel vision.  You are simply putting your fist or knife hand strike to a defined spot, past the object, regardless of the object.

However I’d like to end by saying I have never met a board I didn’t like…

Perhaps I need to rethink that!

How Tough are You?

Well there are a lot of ways to find out. You could visit your local biker bar and kick over a few Harley’s. Or, you could go patrol the ghetto streets of Detroit, DC or Baltimore. Or, you could find a group of hostile 5 year olds and see how many you could take…that’s what I did…
Well sort of…while I hope to never have to find out for sure (I can only imagine how the press would run with this!) but after taking a short survey I found out…


28

Not bad but I have nothing to compare it to, perhaps you’ll take the survey (for fun of course;) and post your resulting in the comments? I’m looking forward to it…

All work and no play makes for a boring individual, so that saying goes.  Well far be it for us to stand in the way of fun here at KarateTraining.org!  Since our site rebuild our games section has been offline and our patrons have let us know, emails, phone calls, it was really overwhelming.  So back by popular demand is the KarateTraining.org games section.  You can find it in the top menu or by using this link.  Unlike the old section you can now add comments.  We are hoping our patrons will post comments with their favorite games and perhaps their high scores, unless you think you aren’t good enough to compete…chicken? 😉

Kid Rock, Rocks!

I went to the movies the other day and during the previews they ran a music video/commercial for the National Guard. The commercial was really just the music video of Kid Rock’s new song Warrior, the video and the song are great. While I don’t think of Kid Rock as a role model he is very talented, patriotic and understands his wealth compared to ours. He also likes to make his music available for free because as he say “I have more money then I can use!”.

There is a problem with embedding his song so until I figure that out you can play it on your system with this link Warrior. To get more information about the song and the Guard visit their official site.

Now I’ve seen it all!…Karate Dog…

A Fitness Perspective…

Unfit - An American Problem!

This cartoon does a great job of pointing out the perspective of many people today. They lack the long term vision of their health and the impacts their decisions today will have on their health tomorrow. As human beings we tend to have a lack of perspective about ourselves which gives an illusion of our world instead of the reality. Illusions are attractive but dangerous if you loose site of reality. Illusions allow us to ignore dangerous situations (overeating, drugs, laziness, etc) and fall into a cycle of self abuse. Find your reality today and To thy own self be true!

I have seen the web site this video clip refers to and thought it was really funny, but to see Chuck Norris read from it was amazingly funny and entertaining!
