Health & Fitness Tip #5 – Make Health & Fitness Your Lifestyle

There is an excellent book by Charles Duhigg, The Power of Habit, I highly recommend. The author has pored through research, conducted interviews and intensively studied the psychology and physiology behind our habits as human beings. As a corollary of his studies, Mr. Duhigg uncovered habits that dramatically increase one’s chances of succeeding to lose weight and become fit. He refers to these as “keystone habits,” or habits or small changes that have a ripple effect on multiple areas of a person’s life.

Habit #1: Exercise The Power of Habit: “When people start habitually exercising, even as infrequently as once a week, they start changing other, unrelated patterns in their lives, often unknowingly. Typically, people who exercise start eating better and becoming more productive at work. They smoke less and show more patience with colleagues and family. They use their credit cards less frequently and say they feel less stressed. It’s not completely clear why. But for many people, exercise is a keystone habit that triggers widespread change.” (p. 109)

If you just get out and exercise once per week it can literally change your life. This conclusion is based on multiple studies in publications such as Public Health Reports and Journal of Psychiatric and Mental Health. I firmly believe the habit of regular exercise is the keystone habit for healthy and fit adults.

Martial Arts for Life offers STX Kickboxing (Savate / Thai Cross Training), a kickboxing curriculum founded by Sensei Erik Paulson, former light heavyweight kickboxing champion. STX Kickboxing is a hybrid striking system which focuses on explosive techniques from Boxing, Jeet Kune Do, Kickboxing, Savate, Muay Thai (Thai & Dutch methods). In STX Kickboxing, students will learn a blend of elbow, punches and knees from each art. These skills are easily translated in MMA, kickboxing, and self-defense situations. From glove drills to focus mitts, to Thai pads, students will have a wide variety of striking options.

This is a very cool video that was used to promote the Ip Man biopics starring Donnie Yen (great movies for any martial arts fan). In the video Guro Dan Inosanto talks about the influence of the Wing Chun system on Bruce Lee’s martial arts journey and demonstrates some techniques from Wing Chun and Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do. For JKD aficionados, the Ping Chuie / Gua Chuie series on the focus mitts is featured towards the end of the video.

In well over two decades of training in the martial arts Guro Dan Inosanto is by far the most knowledgeable and well-versed instructor I have ever had the privilege of training with. His ability to seamlessly transition from style to style and historical knowledge of virtually all arts is unparalleled. And in spite of his tremendous martial arts pedigree and knowledge, he is just about the most humble man you could ever meet.

Guru Dan Inosanto, a true inspiration to all martial artists.

If you saw Bruce Lee’s final film, The Game Of Death, you may remember Dan Inosanto from the infamous nunchaku duel. A Filipino-American martial arts master and member of the Black Belt Hall of Fame, Master Inosanto has graced the big screen as well as the cover of countless martial-arts magazines.
