Well if you were serious enough about it you should have enrolled in a magic school to become a magician. Surely for most of us it might sound even more boring than a martial arts school...
So you are enrolled in sort of Wing Chun, BJJ, Karate, Kung Fu, Krav Maga, Muay Thai, Boxing, Wrestling, etc etc etc. Yes I've combined fighting sports with Lethal Martial and Artistic Gymnastic martial arts in the above sentence. But that is not the point here.
So of course you have all sorts of schools some have more sparring than the others and some break it down more than the others as well. You can be in a great school to learn a game with instructors breaking down techniques and devising drills to climb up success. You can have schools where you feel the hardship of trying to catch a breath from taking a punch or a kick, and after you ice it, you feel great.
Sometimes you keep wondering how come you are paying tuition, putting the effort and yet there are few people in school that are just better than you and you know its not because they have been there for longer!
You can end up spending a lifetime trying to find out the answer. Sometimes you lose connectivity with reality. What am I going to do in a street fight?
Am I prepared to kill someone on the spot just because a severe threat to my life or dear one's? Will my moves work against more than one person? How much do I know about the magic of fighting for self defense?
Well magic is surprise. A surprise with something you think is impossible to be done! So if you learn sort of Pure Krav Maga, you learn what seems impossible. Why is Pure Krav Maga then like going to magic school?
Its paying attention to a comprehensive detailed intensive training program. It teaches you the connective language of hand to hand combat communicating between your mind and body and enabling you to sort all the options and possibilities to control opponents before they control you. It is the shortest course possible because you learn the language.
Here in 30 hours of training, you would experience drilling techniques to reach pressure points and leverage them using the best options with your body, and create a complete training circle for the purpose of self defense. You will drill it while your training partner is trying to do the same. You will realize the limits of the Human Reaction time, and you will see all the connections of the split second decision, reaction, action and resolution of threat scenarios. You will gain a deep understanding of the complexities of a fight so you will be certain why the moves and drills you practice and the theory behind it work!
You can simplify it or expand it whenever you want. 123 - Awareness, reaction at the split second of hotzone entry neutralizing any possible attack and counter attack; stop and make a judgment what to do next.
So what am I getting at with this article? I am trying to have people that used the Pure Krav Maga - Self Defense Mastery DVD Set to share their experience of success and failure to get to the bottom of the training problems to achieve magic!
How do we keep our mindset geared to proper training and avoid dangerous horseplay or sink our imagination in delusional skills?
