Today the Cabal Fang Temple is hosting our annual Martial Fitness Seminar. This week’s T.I. will be two play along.
Martial Fitness: Training Involution #113
- Review your prevention and mindset. What are the four things you should do to prevent getting into a physical self-defense situation? (Hint: the acronym is P.A.D.E. ) If prevention doesn’t work, what are the three things you must do if you think something is about to go down? (Hint: P.R.A.). When things get physical, what are the three things you have to do? (Hint: Y. M. K.). If you don’t know the answers to these questions, re-read your manual!
- Can you handle your body weight? Complete the following constitutional: Zombie Squats (50), Push-ups (50), Get-ups (25), Wrist Waggles (1:30), Mountain Climbers (100), Crunch’n’Punch (50), Splays (25).
- Can you use a weapon? News flash: weapons were invented because they’re more effective than bare hands. Select a dull training weapon such as a stick or wooden knife. Set up your space with two heavy bags — one hanging and the other vertically on the ground (in a corner or strapped to a post works nicely). Set timer for 2:00 min rounds and cycle through this twice, a total of 16 mins: Hanging Heavy bag strikes max power, Get-ups (switch weapon hands between each one), Sit-ups w/ max power strikes to floor bag, Combat Sprints w/ air strike (16 mins total). See video below for excerpts from last year’s seminar.
- Are you centered? Cool down and then practice basic contemplation for 10 mins.
