The Truth About Martial Arts And Self Defense: Part Three}

Submitted by: Peyton Quinn

In this the third installment of this article I want to first point out some of the reasons that the business model of traditional martial arts schools today is in conflict with their capacity to teach self-defense. Indeed, some have told me repeatedly that teaching self-defense is simply incompatible with running a martial arts school.

More than forty years ago Bruce Lee spoke of the classical mess in regard to the martial arts schools of his day. He was largely referring to schools in Asia, but also classical schools in the US as well. He said the training method is largely designed to retain the student and their monthly fee. This situation does not seem to have changed either

In todays world the martial arts industry has primarily become one that teaches children classical arts. There are very few adults in most martial arts schools. It is children that have always been the bread and butter of the industry. So let us examine the business model itself of a martial arts school today.

First, there are few businesses one can start with as little initial investment as a martial arts school. At least few that have anything like the potential monetary return of a martial arts school. One can rent a space, put an ad in the yellow pages, do some demonstrations at the shopping malls etc, and begin to enroll students in their school.

In a year a person who has the business, communications and marketing skills could in many demographic areas, sign up 100 students (children) whos parents pay from $65 to $125 a month for their kids lessons each month. Let assume an average monthly tuition of about $100 a month for easy figuring here.

If a school owner has 100 students at $100 a month then he is grossing $10,000 a month or $120,000 a year.

The fact is 100 students is a modest sized school too. A large school has closer to 350 students or more. Now what are the real expenses in running the school? The Yellow pages ad, the rent on the space and insurance are the only significant expenses. In fact, the trend now is for MA school owners to get a mortgage and thus come to own their buildings. The equity they develop in their building being a big part of their retirement package.

Also, as a part of the traditional way of classical instruction allows many classes to be taught by unpaid senior students. I will note however that today this practice of unpaid instructors is becoming more challenging for school owners to maintain however.

The martial arts industry thus has more than a few Martial Arts School millionaires and a handful of multi-millionaires. One of the largest companies in the martial arts industry actually offers a six week course in marketing and business operations for a martial arts school (even if the person has no previous martial arts training at all) and they will then sell them a franchise so they can open their martial arts school under their name. If the franchise purchaser has no martial arts training they provide a six-week course in martial arts for them.

Today the martial arts industry is almost totally sales and profit directed and is focused nearly entirely on children. We have Karate Birthday parties and Little Ninjas programs and more, as core promotional activities in the industry. And e have eight year old black belts too.

Now please do not misunderstand me here, I think MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOLS SERVE CHILDREN VERY WELL. Indeed, they can teach self-discipline outside the home (where it may be lacking too) and martial arts often teaches children respectful behavior.

I believe that most often children actually do get these important benefits and character building assets in martial arts schools, given that the instructor does the job correctly.

And most often I have seen that instructors do a pretty good job there. They handle children very well and so most often those kids achieve the very worthwhile goals of their martial training.

These goals for the children are also very collateral with the business interests of the school too. And there is most certainly not a thing wrong with making a good profit from ones work either.

But I think you can see how self-defense training, and especially for adults, just does not fit well with this martial arts school business model. The fact on the ground here is that about 90% or more of the students are young children and that alone makes teaching self-defense out of place at present in the martial arts school business model.

Let me relate an experience that illustrates this that I had less than one year ago at a convention where I addressed 125 of the top income producers in the martial arts school industry. I talked to them regarding their teaching a short-term self-defense program for adults.

In my presentation I showed that there was a demand by adults for true and comprehensive self-defense training. My own RMCAT program in Colorado provided undeniable proof of this demand.

If it the demand were not there then why would adults spend the money to come from every city in the US and Canada and from so many foreign countries to attend my self-defense training weekends at my Colorado facility?

Only a few of these school owners doubted that there was in fact a demand for adult self-defense training. Yet very, very few of these 125 top school owners felt that they could or should or wanted to teach any self-defense program in their schools. You might well ask why that was?

They expressed it too me in a few different ways but what it ultimately came down to was this, I am not in that business, why should I try to enter an unfamiliar industry when I am doing very well in the one I am currently in, teachings martial arts to children?

Well good people, I am in the business of teaching comprehensive and true self-defense training to adults and I have been for twenty years plus now. I have no monthly paying students and I can accept no children in my classes. My business model is thus not at all the same as a martial arts school.

It maybe that I just remain naive or it may be because I want to believe it (we must always try to see the deeper truth in ourselves) I still think that martial arts schools could teach self-defense classes and do so profitably too.

But I will admit that I am becoming less amused than I was in the past at seeing Self-Defense plastered all over the windows of every martial arts school that one finds on every other street corner. They do not teach self-defense and in my view so they should not advertise themselves as doing so. Some schools are some exceptions of course.

On the other hand, I have been pleasantly surprised recently at the number of martial arts school owners that agree with me on this point.

However, it also true that some school owners will still content that they do teach self-defense. I even hear people claiming that Tae Kwon Do for example is an indigenous Korean art, a thousand years old and proven on the battlefield.

But common sense alone should be enough to immediately see the absurdity of these claims and for any unarmed martial art not just TKD. First of course, TKD is an unarmed art and no people at any time or place in all of human history ever fought with their bare hands and feet.

Man is the tool user, we have the opposing thumb and mankind has always used weapons to fight with since before recorded history. We can even examine the weapons and tools of the extinct humanoid Neanderthal Man which are well over one hundred thousand years old.

And as for the proven on the battlefield assertion, this is absurd on its very face since no battle in history was ever fought without weapons. We do not have to create or propagate false histories for any martial art to truly respect or enjoy their true value and benefits.

So martial arts are just that arts they have self-defense value for sure especially when taught with that objective and by a knowledgeable and experienced instructor. But I feel obligated to point out that most martial arts instructors have never been in a real fight in the entire adult lives.

Hence, in teaching self-defense most martial arts instructors are teaching something they have no real experience in.

Further still, instruction that is confined to techniques is never really true self-defense training. Real self-defense training in my view must teach the ways of the human predator, how to avoid conflict with them, and above all prepare the person for the adrenal stress reaction of an actual self-defense situation.

Now lets consider how todays modern soldier is trained and prepared for combat. While some training methods have not changed since before biblical times in the military, in the last few decades something else really has.

That something I speak of is simulators. A guy in an Abrams tank in the desert of Iraq never destroyed a Soviet T-74 tank and neither had his instructors at tank school either.

But those instructors were provided extensive knowledge of the enemys tank and their tactics and then the tank commander and crew trained in simulators, which were very authentic to the actual battlefield. So the first time they ranged, targeted and fired on the enemy tank was not really the first time they had done it. They had done it all on authentic simulators many times before.

Do you see that self-defense training must use this same training model of an authentic simulation? So what are the features we need to simulate for a real world self-defense encounter?

The most important is the adrenal stress reaction as this is really the only thing you can absolutely count on happening in an actual threat situation. The adrenal reaction causes even good martial arts people to sometimes forget everything they ever learned. They dont really forget of course, its just that they have no access to their techniques under the adrenal rush as they never really practiced them under that adrenal rush.

As a bouncer I cant even give a realistic number to every fight I saw or short-circuited

so it never happened. Real attacks are seldom out of anywhere. The human predators and bullies do not attack just anyone at random. They want to be sure first that they have safe victim to attack. Then they want to impair that persons ability to think clearly or defend themselves effectively by adrenalizing them and making them experience fear.

This is why they begin their attack with words such as a very belligerent What are you looking at! How the other person responds to this determines if they will attack at all. This then is the easiest and best time to win the fight too, because the only fight you can win completely is the one you avoid in the first place.

So the self-defense training simulation must include this critical verbal phase of the fight and teach and train the person to handle it correctly.

Bruce lee also said The best preparation for the event is the event itself. I know this to be absolutely true, but we cant go out and get in brawls as a training method can we?

Thus the authentic simulation of the aggressor and the physical skills learned and hard wired into the student through the adrenal stress driven fight scenario with the totally armored assailant (where they can strike with full power and without any real restraint) this is the best self-defense training method currently existent and this is why I refined it and use it today at RMCAT.

Healthy Sperm Improves Chances Of Fertility}

Submitted by: Dr Gautam Allahbadia

A man should make sure he has a happy, healthy lifestyle and a good relationship. It takes two to make a baby. Although a woman will carry and deliver the child, a man also has a leading role in pregnancy. For Fertilization to occur, his sperm must be healthy and strong enough to reach and penetrate the woman’s egg. If you and your partner are planning a pregnancy, you might be wondering about the health of your sperm. Start by understanding the various factors that can affect male fertility and then consider steps to help your sperm become top performers.

When a men ejaculate, the purpose of their semen is probably the last thing on their minds, but it can serve a very important role in spotting changes in your well being. Usually, semen is a white or off white fluid. Any changes in colour or smell could be a sign of something more serious. Semen will usually have a chlorine type smell, but a strong foul smelling ejaculation could be a sign of infection. The amount of semen produced varies from man to man. However, recurring low levels of watery semen could indicate a condition called retrograde ejaculation and though not harmful, it can cause fertility problems. If you spot any of these changes you should contact your GP or the urologist. The condition of a man’s sperm can tell a lot about his general health.

Men are constantly looking for health markers that can help predict their risk for chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. A majority of guys out there may be surprised to find out that their semen is an invaluable tool when it comes to gauging their overall health. Thats right, a mans semen can say a lot about his health. In the past two decades, overall sperm count for men around the world has declined by up to a third. The decline in the sperm count is attributed mainly to the following factors.

Hypertension and High Blood Pressure

Around 80 million adults in the United States have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, which can lead to potentially life-threatening complications if left untreated, including kidney damage, heart attack, and stroke. A recent study conducted at the Stanford University School of Medicine found that the quality of a mans semen could indicate his risk for hypertension. Research that included 9,387 men between the ages of 30 and 50 revealed that men struggling with fertility tend to have an increased risk for certain diseases of the circulatory system, including hypertension and heart disease. The relationship between semen quality and hypertension was tied to around 15 percent of all genes in the human genome that are connected to reproduction as well as other bodily systems.

Cigarette Smoking and Overweight/Obesity in Men

Evidence has consistently shown that smoking and obesity directly affect infertility in men. One study published in the journal Human Reproduction showed that a man with a greater body mass index (BMI) often has a lower sperm count and poor semen quality compared to a man with a lower BMI. Overweight and obese men have worse sperm quality than men of healthy weight. Being overweight or obese can also cause hormonal changes that reduce fertility and make men less interested in sex. Men who are very overweight are also more likely to have problems getting an erection. Together, these factors reduce the chances of men who are overweight or obese fathering a child.

Cigarette smoking has a significant influence only on sperm count, percentage of active sperm and sperm morphology. The semen parameters in infertile men were significantly different from that of fertile men. The influence of body mass index on semen parameters was obvious except in percentage of immotile sperms. These results suggest that the chemical agents or mutagens may affect male reproductive via direct effect on the spermatogenesis.

Bisphenol A (BPA) Exposure

Fears over bisphenol A (BPA) exposure have resulted in the BPA-free movement. Researchers found that the men but not women with high phthalate concentrations experienced a 20% decline in fertility and took longer to get their partners pregnant than men with lower concentrations. BPA, an endocrine disrupting chemical with artificial estrogen properties, has been tied to disruptions in the hormonal system. Researchers from Washington State University recently discovered how BPA can increase a mans risk for infertility. If a couple is having trouble getting pregnant, they should try to minimize the male’s exposure to phthalates. Phthalates are anti-androgens, and other studies have shown that environmental levels of phthalates in infertile men correlate with increased rates of sperm DNA damage, low sperm counts and abnormal sperm.

Today male infertility is on the rise and male infertility is due to low sperm production, misshapen or immobile sperm, varicocele or blockages that prevent the delivery of sperm. Know in detail about male infertility at

Effects of Alcohol Consumption

If any men out there are looking for a litmus test to decide if they are drinking too much alcohol, their sperm could be the answer. Excessive alcohol lowers testosterone levels and sperm quality and quantity in men. It can also reduce libido, and cause impotence. If a man drinks heavily it can really reduce a couples chances of conceiving. However, if you reduce what you drink, these effects can be quickly reversed. The current recommended guidelines on safe drinking recommend no more than three to four units of alcohol per day. Drinking within these limits is unlikely to affect the quality of your sperm, so try to make this your maximum. Liver disease caused by excessive drinking also may lead to fertility problems.

Insomnia and Lack of Sleep

Lack of sleep is associated with some extremely negative health consequences, including heart disease, diabetes, obesity, depression, and even certain types of cancer. Yet another study out of Denmark has found that not getting enough sleep can also lower a mans testosterone levels and sperm count. Men with insomnia, trouble getting to sleep early, and inconsistent sleep throughout the night had a sperm count that was, on average, 29 percent lower than men who had no trouble sleeping. Tests showed that their testicles were also significantly smaller, according to the study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology. Based on the overall youth and health of all the men involved in the study, the researchers were able to conclude that quality and duration of sleep has a big effect on sperm count, which determines male fertility.

The above lifestyle factors can easily be brought under control thereby increasing male sperm count and fertility. Along with healthy lifestyle, if proper balanced diet is taken it will help to a great extent in increasing the sperm count for men. Foods that Increase Sperm Count includes banana, dark chocolate, beef, walnuts, garlic, pomegranates, spinach, fruit salad, egg and water. The foods and fruits mentioned in can help your body in raising its sperm count and they can also improve the functioning of the sperms. These foods are also capable of improving fertility. So the basic fund a for male infertility is enjoy healthy lifestyle and good balanced diet.

A Detailed Definition Of Dental Implants In Arizona

A Detailed Definition of Dental Implants in Arizona


Rozar Peter

Your pearly whites are by no means invulnerable. They can get knocked out accidently or sustain irreparable damage and/or decay for any of a number of reasons, necessitating dental implants in Arizona. While we tend to take our teeth for granted, especially in our youth, the reality is that most of us will at some stage during our life lose one or more of our teeth. In fact, as many as 30% of us will lose all of our teeth before we re 70 years old!

Over 20 million Americans are completely edentulous (don t have any teeth left), according to the American Dental Association. A further 100 million people have lost between 11 and 15 of their natural adult teeth. You may think that a complete set of teeth is the norm, but the older you get, the rarer and rarer this gift becomes! Thankfully, incredible advances in dental technology and medical science have made it possible for patients presenting with one, two or even all of their teeth missing to receive a sophisticated, functional and highly aesthetic tooth replacement. And this technology is dental implants in Arizona.

What are Dental Implants in Arizona?

Dental implants in Arizona are incredibly strong devices used to replace missing teeth. They are free-standing artificial tooth roots constructed from the exceptionally strong and non-corrosive metal, titanium. This metal fixture or screw is surgically placed in the sterilized and prepared socket/s left bare by the missing tooth or teeth. Once the base components of dental implants in Arizona have been placed, the dentist will affix an abutment to it, which in turn is used to support a ceramic tooth crown (in the case of single missing teeth) or a prosthetic dental bridge (in the case of multiple missing teeth). Over the course of the months following surgery, dental implants in Arizona undergo a very special process known as osseointegration .

YouTube Preview Image

Osseointegration: The Secret Behind the Success of Dental Implants in Arizona

In 1951, Swedish professor Per-Ingvar Br nemark (see image above) made the discovery that essentially led to the conception of the fields of orthopedic surgery and dental implantology. It was the unique ability of titanium metal to form a strong biological bond with bone tissue that turned the concept of permanent and non-removable dental implants in Arizona from theory to reality. Subsequent development and clinical trials have directed the evolution of dental implants in Arizona. Today, they are the most comprehensive and sophisticated functional and aesthetic solution to single and multiple missing teeth.

The incredible advantages of dental implants in Arizona are owed largely to osseointegration: the phenomenon Per-Ingvar Br nemark discovered back in 1951. This process essentially enables dental implants in Arizona, with healing, to become permanently rooted in the jaw bone, just like natural teeth:

1.Dental implants transmit the forces associated with eating directly into the underlying jaw bone, keeping it stimulated and therefore, alive and healthy.

2.Dental implants in Arizona provide strong support for an artificial tooth crown created from a highly durable ceramic material. This facilitates the grinding and/or biting function of the missing tooth. It s carefully fabricated to look just like a natural tooth too.

3.Dental implants in Arizona are replacement teeth that feel natural and comfortable and don t in any way damage the neighboring tissues.

A Final Note on Dental Implants in Arizona

The discovery of osseointegration, albeit accidental, conceived the entire field of dental implantology. Modern dental implants in Arizona now offer patients presenting with single and multiple missing teeth a fantastic, functional and long-lasting solution, giving you back your smile confidence!

For individuals who have mislaid their body weight, they are left with several side effects including, drooping skin, which results when the skin dropped its stiffness and also flexibility.

Horizontal lines, vertical banding, dreaded turkey-wattle, crepe-y quality for the skin and also fatty jowls all work together in order to make appear much older as compared to your actual age. The particular neck lift surgical treatment is even known as platysmaplasty can be performed in order to tighten up the root muscles and then skin in order to lift up as well as sharpen and improve the jaw line contour.

Usually neck lift surgical treatment could possibly be carried out in several ways, based on the needs of the individual. Here are three popular methods, which include:

Generally Liposuction is used to eliminate fat. To remove extra skin cervicoplasty as well as platysmaplasty would be to remove or even tighten up your neck muscles, and this is a process that removes unwanted band lines. Usually it is carried out together with facelift surgery; even this can also be completed as the stand-alone treatment. Sometimes this can be accomplished in conjunction with the eyelid surgical procedure and also face lift. If you want to get much less invasive surgical procedure, you can go for micro neck lift up.

Most often neck lift surgery can be carried out by the experianced cosmetic surgeons. You can obtain this specific surgery in the hospital, outpatient surgical centre, or even in physician\’s workplace. Because several treatments accomplished throughout the neck lift surgery, time period required for this specific surgical treatment could be an hr or perhaps more. This can be done under general sedation or normal sedation, as well as typically it does not need an over night stay in the operation room.

This surgery can be done endoscopically. In this endoscopic neck lift surgery, an instrument instructs the physician visually during the entire procedure. Benefits of this endoscopic treatment contain absolutely no general anesthesia, faster recovery, smaller sized cuts, and also lowered bruising.
