Martial Arts for Life

On A Quest To Be The Best!

What’s New at Martial Arts for Life (Part 2)

In our last post we highlighted some of the many improvements we have made to our Adult Martial Arts program. Since then we’ve worked to upgrade our facility and our skills and knowledge base as instructors.

Most Recent Facility Improvements:

1.) Our brand new 1.5″ Pro Force Ultra flooring system was installed in June 2010. This matting system is TWICE the thickness as the average Karate mat and provides our students with newest, safest, and best flooring available for training in anything from Kickboxing to Grappling.

2.) New paint throughout the school. We have a dedicated professional Martial Arts facility, and we believe in keeping it looking top notch.

3.) New music! Hot new music mixes from GFMix to keep our classes moving!

Instructor & Staff Training: Taking our game to a Whole New Level

In order to help our students grow and be their best, we must grow and be our best!

1.) In June, Master Brugger and Mr. Caldwell attended a Muay Thai clinic taught by Kru Kaensak Sor Ploenjit at Tri State Martial Arts. Kru Kaensak is featured in the August 2010 issue of Black Belt Magazine.

1.) In July, Master & Mrs. Brugger attended the 2010 Martial Arts Super Conference and trained with some of the best Martial Artists and instructors in the world. We trained in workshops given by notables such as Matt Hughes, Lyoto Machida, John Hackleman, & Brazilian Jiu Jitsu expert Robert Drysdale. Here are some pictures from the event.

The Best Must Get Better!

We believe in providing the best possible program to our students and in constant and never ending improvement of that program!

In 2010 we have made many improvements to our Adult Martial Arts program. Here are some highlights:

1.) The addition of medicine balls and medicine ball workouts have improved our students’ core strength and overall athleticism and fitness levels.

2.) The addition of SPRI power bands and power band conditioning routines to our classes has led to increased muscle tone, strength, and total body sculpting.

3.) The addition of grappling through complimentary seminars on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts concepts has made our adult students more well-rounded in all ranges of self-defense and allowed them to cross train in other Martial Arts styles under our roof and for no additional tuition!

4.) We recently hosted a complimentary boxing clinic with a P.K.A. kickboxing champion and instructor Mr. P. which helped our students improve their technique and knowledge of boxing techniques.

5.) Martial Arts for Life hosted it’s first ever 90 Day Fitness Challenge, which saw our students take advantage of complimentary one on one nutritional guidance with our resident certified nutritional consultant Mrs. B. They also participated in some seriously intense workouts that had hearts pounding and sweat pouring. We had our most dedicated students lose 10 to 15 pounds and shape up just in time for summer with this program! This too was provided with no additional tuition or program costs.

6.) The addition of circuit training routines to our training regimen helped our students push themselves with high intensity interval training by moving through 1 minute workout stations including heavy bags, medicine balls, power bands, & more.

…that’s just for starters AND we’re not even half-way through 2010! We believe in providing an extraordinary value to our students and helping them reach their goals, whether they are increased strength & flexibility, increased self-defense skills, or anything in between. Oh, and this is all done in an environment that is based on traditional Martial Arts values such as respect, integrity, courtesy, & humility.

Simple Diet Plan

Here’s a simple diet plan to help get you back on track.

as compiled by Master Steve D.

Morning 6 am – 10 am: Low fat, low sugar yogurt, one serving fresh fruit, hot beverage with no cream or sugar (artificial sweeteners are acceptable).

Afternoon 12 pm – 2 pm: Roll-up “wrap” sandwich (turkey, chicken, beef, tuna are all fine). Salt and pepper to taste and a hot beverage with no cream or sugar (artificial sweeteners are acceptable). Lettuce and tomato or a similar vegetable is fine.

Late afternoon 4 pm – 5 pm: Low fat yogurt and a hot beverage or a serving of fresh fruit or even a small salad with low fat dressing will do.

Dinner 7 pm – 9 pm: One serving of green leafy salad with carrots and cucumbers and low fat dressing, One portion (the size of your palm) of steak or chicken or fish or pork or similar (grilled with salt and pepper to taste) and a green vegetable (no butter), salt and pepper to taste.

Late Night 10 pm – 12 am: If you’re hungry, yogurt or fruit or oatmeal with artificial sweetener.

Drink a glass of sparkling water (or tap water) with every meal and as much bottled water or hot beverages as you like all day.

If at any point you feel weak, irritable or dizzy, add an additional portion of yogurt, fruit or protein.

Expect to lose 2-3 pounds per week with this plan. If you lose more or less, adjust your intake to achieve these results.

If you have any pre-existing conditions or are on any type of medication, please check with your physician prior to following this meal plan. Remember to check with your Health Professional prior to beginning this or any meal plan.

If you’re serious about changing your diet and appearance consider becoming part of our team. Nutritional consulting is included (at no extra charge) with all our adult programs.
