Sorry for not writing lately.  I have been incredibly busy with work and life.  When not working, teaching private students and teaching officer’s Defensive Tactics I have been on vacation.  I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of things on The Instinctive Edge.  So look for information coming your way soon!

See You On The Mats!!!

CARDIO IS KING…

CARDIO IS KING…

So you are in a violent encounter and walla… your out of breath.  Ever watch a title fight in any combat sport?  What happens when someone is tired?  They usually get beat on.  If you run out of breath in a violent encounter you will simply be at the mercy of your attacker.  You may have trained and have good skills but you won’t be able to use them.  Cardio is king if you don’t have it you will want it when you really need it.  So when designing your training program keep in mind that if you do not have cardio at the top of your list then you are potentially putting yourself in a position to be unable to defend yourself or your loved ones in a violent encounter!  You need to have aerobic (with air) and anaerobic (without air) cardio training in your program.  I have always lived my life trying to be the best athlete that I can be and to not falter when others are unable to continue due to lack of cardio.  I do not want to be the one with no breath in a moment of violence…

Are You Training Hard Enough…

20180811_185514

Jerson “Nene” Tortal who has never slacked off in his training!

Are you training hard enough?  Is your training going to be enough in a moment of violence?  I have had the pleasure recently of watching some fairly skilled martial practitioners who operate in a violence profession practice here in Las Vegas.  Some were really working hard and some not so much.   These individuals who were not working that hard will have to deal with violence in the near future.  It is a given that they will use their training soon.  However, some of them are just going through the motions.  They might be in for a rude shock the next time they have to utilize these skills.  As martial practitioners preparing for a potential violent confrontation it should be understood that we probably won’t get to pick the time or place where the violence will happen.  No, we need to be prepared at all times!  This means we need to be training regularly and we must ensure that we get enough technical training as well as muscular and cardiovascular training.  If you are really putting in the work, you will make sure that you are practicing your martial skills.  You will also then make sure you get your weight lifting in as well as your running, biking, swimming, etc. for cardiovascular health.  Regularly you should evaluate your training and determine if you are training hard enough to maintain a “ready state” for that moment of violence.  If you are kudo’s to you!  However, my experience is that very few people really are.  Most are just getting by and some are going through the motions.  Do not be the person “going through the motions!”  Instead take control and ownership and make sure you are training hard enough!
