Mental Toughness…

WP_20171004_11_57_42_Pro

Mental toughness is one of those must have traits that will complement your physical attributes.  This is what really separates a great Martial Practitioner from an average one.  I have met people with excellent skills and attributes that were weak mentally.  They did not have mental toughness and it showed.  I would have very little confidence having them at my back.  I have also met people who were 120 lb’s soaking wet but they were really mentally tough and simply bad assed individual’s.  So how do you get mentally tough?  Simple, you have to test yourself with obstacles and succeed in overcoming those obstacles.  If you do this you will get mentally tougher.  You will prepare yourself and become mentally tough.  Recently I watched a group go through some extremely tough times in training.  They were mentally and physically pushed to the limit and their breaking points.  They did however succeed in their endeavors and they in the end they were mentally tough.  Your mental toughness is important so that when you do encounter a violent situation you won’t freeze.  No, instead you will succeed and overcome your obstacle.  Focus on being mentally tough.  You may just need it!

Never Settle…

Scissor Takedown

Never settle in life!  What does that mean?  Simply this, do not settle for anything in life.  Do not settle in a relationship.  Do not settle at work.  Certainly, do not settle in your Martial Science training.  You deserve the best of everything so go out and find it!  When training in your Martial Science explore and find what works for you and then look at ways to be creative and improve it!  This journey is all about training and improving and not settling for anything less than the best and more importantly your best!  Never settle!!!

See You On The Mats!!!

DT’s On The Mountain…

Mt. Charleston Fall

So there I was up on the mountain getting fresh air and training law enforcement officer’s in Defensive Tactics.  People in this line of work need skill sets because there is always a potential during a shift that some kind of violent encounter could occur.  Modern law enforcement need to have skills that allow them to strike, work from a clinch, takedowns and grappling, retention skills, handcuffing and more.  The most important thing that officer’s need is a strong mind-set that allows them to function in a highly volatile situation and survive a confrontation.    It is always an honor to teach my brothers and sisters on the mats.  They all inspire me to be better!
