Thought For The Day

 " Who ever decided that Spiritual Development and Financial Success should never mix robbed the World of some of the brightest people , who went elesewhere to make a living "

I write that through the lens of a Martial Arts Instructor , however there are many fields this belief system has applied to , Educators who work with Children come to mind quite quickly.

In the 21st Century their has never been more oppurtunity for well trained Martial Arts Instructors to make a positive and life long effect on all of their Students , the challenge the Industry faces is lack of REAl training for Instructors , along with Owners  and Instructors misguided belief in that  the physical Art itself can  carry the day - when in fact , atleast during the initial stages of training the physical element of punch & kick should perhaps be 40 - 50 % of a new students curriculum - with the remaining 60 - 40 % introduction to methods that will elevate MENTAL PERFORMANCE first , that then leads to a lifetime of High Performing Leaders.

* body weight bulgaian squat
* hamstring rollouts
* bench dips / feet on swiss ball
* cable flyes
* one arm bent row 
* standing bicep curl
* shoulder rehab
* elbow / forearm work
* 1 set of reverse hypers
* 2 sets of Chek crunch's 
* 5 minutes of hip /  groin and leg stretch's
