The world is increasingly becoming more dangerous. Everywhere you look there are looming threats of war, security issues and political unrest. When the brown stuff finally hits the fan and you find yourself surrounded by people who wish to harm you, would you be able to defend yourself? (h/t to ReadyNutrition.com)
Most accidents that happen on a regular basis are caused by something as simple as negligence. Many people endanger themselves every day by not being attentive to their immediate surroundings no matter what they’re doing; be it driving, walking into a grocery store, or even just crossing the street. Since danger is ever-present, it’s imperative that you be more proactive in keeping yourself fit and in training your mind and body to react to adverse situations so you can fight for your safety and survival.
The best way to prepare your body for defensive tactics is to learn basic fighting skills. A simple heavy bag (punching bag), a pair of gloves and wraps, and kicking pads are all you need to train in hand-to-hand combat. You can train with a coach at your local gym – they should have all these items – or you can invest in these items yourself and train at home. There are numerous videos online that teach basic fighting skills that you can follow on your own.
If you decide on training at home, you have to consider the space in which to practice your skills. The fighting techniques below are great for training in minimal space:
So, you already know the standard techniques for physical fighting. However, everything you’ve learned may go out the window if you don’t prepare your mind to fight as well. It’s important to strengthen your resolve and pay attention to your mind as much as to your surroundings.
How you think and react under duress will all come down to breathing. When disaster strikes, the surge of adrenaline will make your mind race, your breathing shorter, and might make you freeze in place like a deer in headlights. To combat this response, practice deep breathing.
Take a deep breath. Focus. Feel your body slowly coming down from the adrenaline high and your mental fog clearing up.
While acting quickly in an emergency is important, you won’t be able to think through your plan unless you breathe deliberately, recenter yourself, and focus your mind.
Lastly, all these techniques and skills will amount to nothing if you don’t keep yourself fit and healthy. What you put in your body as fuel will need to help you get through any tough situation, so make sure that you consume only the good stuff. Eat a balanced, healthy diet full of organic fruits and vegetables every day and keep yourself active and moving with moderate- to vigorous-intensity exercises a couple of days every week.
