Celebrating Mom and Dad at Tri State

Tri State Kickboxing and Mixed Martial Arts recently hosted two events in celebration of Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Students were able to bring in their parents [or children] for this unique opportunity to train together and spend some valuable, quality time together. Each event included basic fitness work outs, marital arts drills, and of course, what party is complete without pizza! It was a wonderful way for our students to share their skills and heart for martial arts with their loved ones.

America”â„¢s Best Defense Is Training and More Training

Despite concerted efforts by law enforcement authorities and the criminal justice system, costly crimes such as burglary and muggings still still take place far too often in communities everywhere. If you have found yourself in a position where you are confronted by a mugger or a thief with intent to harm, you may suddenly discover the importance of self-defense. While violence is never the first resort, in some cases, there is little one can do but to fight back. In the heat of the moment, it can be quite difficult to summon up the self-defense training that you have learned though.

The only way to actually to identify how one would truly react in such a confrontation is to experience it first-hand. Many experts in martial arts and self-defense have commented that with constant and dedicated practice, self-defense eventually turns into “muscle memory” and “automatic reflex.” Self-defense training through practical application of martial arts yields many benefits to students of all ages, genders, goals, and backgrounds.

Safety

It goes without saying that the primary benefit of self-defense training is the increased safety and security of yourself and your loved ones. Unlike going to the gym or performing cardio exercises, self-defense training focuses on particular situations in which individuals are against the odds. Participants will learn how to handle criminals who threaten them with superior strength, numbers, or weapons in a variety of practical means. Sometimes using speed and space to gain advantage in a confrontation is all that is required to make an escape from harm.

Confidence

Another important aspect that self-defense training builds in individuals is confidence. Living in fear of what could happen to you on the streets after the sun goes down is hardly a way to live at all. While some precautions need to be taken, learning self-defense training will boost your own confidence levels and allow you to go about your life with this fear diminished.

Fitness

Finally, self-defense training is not solely about situational encounters. In order for you to perform certain skills and techniques, you will need to be physically capable as well. Self- defense training involves a number of exercises that help individuals build their strength, agility, and balance so that bodies and minds are both prepared to perform the required actions. During self-defense training, attentive teachers will identify aspects of your physical ability that could potentially be your weaknesses and look to help you improve upon them over time.

“No BS” Training – It”â„¢s REAL

Children can be a frustrating lot, especially if they lack courtesy and discipline. Perhaps it”â„¢s an over-generalization, but sometimes it seems that we”â„¢ve neglectfully raised a generation of annoying, self-centered brats! (Did our elders say the same of our generation?) To make things worse, we”â„¢ve crafted a bunch of excuses to justify both their and our unacceptable behaviors. As parents and teachers, the duty is ours to train children with better attitudes and strong moral values.

Basic tips to train your kids

  • Impulsive behavior is one the biggest problems that parents experience dealing with kids. The bad news is that impulses are a part of our biological make-up. We may be higher animals, but we”â„¢re animals nonetheless and so are our children. If they”â„¢re not taught to control their impulses, they will look for frustrating and annoying ways to get what they want. That”â„¢s how kids are. One of the best ways to deal with this issue is by not responding to any demands made rudely. Once your kids realize that they”â„¢re not going to get what they want by throwing tantrums, they”â„¢ll learn to wait and delay gratification.
  • Keep your children distracted with a lot of physical activity. Children are practically bundles of energy and if this energy isn”â„¢t channeled in the right direction, you could have a major problem on your hands. Introduce them to sports or other activities that they might like and encourage them to participate in those activities. Once they learn to keep busy with wholesome, exhausting extracurricular activities, they don”â„¢t have much energy left for misbehaving.
  • Kids can also suffer from anger. This usually stems from the fact that they are not yet aware of how to control their emotions. Much of their behavioral “inspiration” comes from external sources like cartoons and sit-coms. Teach your kids to control their anger and to channel it in more practical ways. For instance, if your child is angry about something, ask him or her to make a list of what makes them angry and as to why. This will help them to understand where their emotions and reactions are coming from.

Train your kids with karate

Quite contrary to its portrayal in the media, karate is an art form that has its foundations in the philosophy of non-violence. Karate might have originated as a fighting style, it evolved into a lifestyle and philosophy fostering important values such as self-discipline, patience, focus, conflict resolution, respect, and more. Allowing your children to learn karate is probably one of the best ways to help instill your shared values and work ethic.
