Martial Arts Exercise Fixes Spine!
That Martial Arts are the cause of America’s woes is obvious. The lack of martial art training results in a lack of personal discipline, a lack of self worth, and the decline of the individual. This, correspondingly, results in the decline of America.
Now, we can carry on about the corporations, the president being a Marxist, the unions trying to get something for nothing, and while there is going to be a certain amount of truth there, the personal responsibility for change is still going to fall upon the individual. The terrible truth, you see, is that more than 1 out of every 10 Americans over the age of twelve is on prescription drugs for depression. This is not individual responsibility, this is band aids for broken legs.
These meds are doctor prescribed antidepressants like prozac, and there has been a direct link established between such drugs and suicide. How many people commit suicide because of the martial arts? Not too many.
So instead of ingesting tablets when they get depressed, Americans should be signing up for that tai chi class, or going to a self defense class, or sweating a little to learn a karate form. Instead of believing in the drug companies and following the orders of the family medical quack. Wouldn’t it be better to learn some ancient and diehard kung fu, get interested in a foreign culture, find out something out about your real self?
Heck, the family quack is trained in medicine, not mental disorders. And psychiatry isn’t really a science. And even if these facts weren’t so, a whopping 1 in 4 people are misdiagnosed with depression!
The real cure for this mental health depression stuff is actually pretty easy. The real cure has to do with improving the lifestyle, eating good foods, getting enough sleep, and learning how to deal with problems. These solutions are what a martial artist naturally gravitates to in his training, and this brings us to the magic three answers to creating real mental health.
Number one, avoid modified (genetically and otherwise) foods, and, to be exact, all processed foods. Number two, do some body cleanses to get rid of the toxins already in your body. Number three, use such things as Karate or Kung Fu or Taekwondo to exercise your body into top shape, and keep it in top shape.
Heck, the bottom line is that drugs are band aids, and the real wounds fester beneath, actually causing the individual’s condition to worsen. Martial Arts, however, cause good health, create individual responsibility, and make a wholistic and healthy human being. It is lack of martial arts that is responsible for the decline of America, and that’s the honest truth!

Okay, Martial Arts Health, what you should eat and why.
I havent’ said much about this, and that because there is so much bushwah out there about what you should eat that I really didn’t want to join the corps of the kooks. So check out the video, I am over sixty in it, and then check out my common sense approach to eating.
Here’s the real plan, and you will find that it changes your body and supercharges your martial art. I don’t care if you practice hard arts like Karate, taekwondo, or whatever, or soft arts like Aikido or tai chi chuan or whatever, this is the straight goods.
First, you lay a base for the day. Mush. That’s right, good, old oatmeal. Read the box, there are no additives. Horses eat that stuff and they run all day. The body likes it, it sticks through to lunch (easily and beyond), and you can add what you want to it without screwing it up. I like raisins, a dab of honey, a bit of butter, but you can go for cinnamon or guava or brown sugar or whatever.
Second, lunch. Here’s something you might think about. If you stop eating bread you’ll lose 5 to 10 pounds. Quickly. And, the body has a rough time rendering anything that’s synthetic (read the packages and see what has been added. So go for light meat (protein), and vegetables. Soup is great. Play with the different kinds until you find something that works. Don’t go for the canned soup, make it yourself. Read the labels, too many additives.
Third, dinner, light meat, more vegetables. Go easy on pasta or rice or potatoes, sticky with things like carrots, peas, corn, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, asparagus, broccoli, and that sort of thing.
I am advocating the vegetables that your mother likely made, the things that you grew up on, that were present when you were young and your body at its healthiest.
Season with things like garlic and onion, try to avoid salt and sugar.
Now, do you need deer horn antler, ginsing, or all those other fancy things?
Probably not. They are the craze only because people don’t eat their vegetables.
Be careful of eating things that have preservatives, dyes, long chemical names, or have been genetically modified. Look, a watermelon has no seeds, so it can’t reproduce, what do you think is going to happen to you when you eat that? Hello limp dick, good by testosterone. I won’t go conspiracy here, though I should. I’ll just tell you that you aren’t what you eat, but your body does respond to poison…and it responds to healthy choices.
That’s about it, I’ll write a more detailed article some time in the near future, but this should help you out. It should give you good Martial Arts health, enable you to make it through the long work out, and I hope you’ll drop by Monster Martial Arts and find some arts that are true and pure.
Martial Arts Injuries are terrible. Simply, they stop you from working out.
Obviously, before we get into a rather advanced way to handle an injury, make sure you have done first aid. If you have to go see a doc, so be it, make sure there is no bleeding, and then you might be able to use what I tell you here.
One, put awareness into your injured body part. That’s all. Don’t just feel the pain, but try to be inside the body at the point of injury looking, being aware, of that injury. What helps is to look at the other side, two. That way you can look at the good side, and think about it on the injured side. This is an odd thing of the good side curing, or at least speeding the repair of, the bad side.
Two, pulsing energy through the body helps. The pulsing shouldbe in soft waving motions, as from Tai Chi, or that sort of art. I wouldn’t do hard pulsing, as from Pan Gai Noon, until you have exhibited some degree of recovery.
Three, and this isn’t a fix it so much as an observation, it seems that what goes intot he body goes out of the body. I first noticed this on colds. I would get a cold, and then, when the cold was elaving, i would experience the same sensations, sometimes a little reverse, sometimes not, as the cold left the body. It always told me when the col was over. Eventually I gave up colds. Haven’t really had any for the last five years. Had a mild one, came and went quick, about three years ago. But, generally speaking, I didn’t want them anymore, and I felt them leaving my body. Mind you, there is extensive theory on this elsewhere, and I am speaking only from the martial artists point of view. But it holds true for injures. I feel something bruise or over stretch or whatever, I will feel that same sensation a day or two later, and then I’ll be healed, better than before.
There is one last thing, the dividing line as to whether my methods work may depend on your sense of self. If you know that you are an I am, if you have a sense of yourself as a unique spiritual being, then this is going to work like gangbusters. But if you need to work on that aspect of your life, you may, I say may, have limited success.
Really, it depends on the amount of intention you have to cure yourself.
If you do need more work on your spiritual self, you might try the old way…simply say ‘I am, I am, I am…” for a few hours. You’ll break through and the methods I outline here may become obvious, or you might discover methods unique to yourself.
I’ll write more on having a martial arts injury later, maybe take some of this stuff apart in depth, but this should help for now. Have a great day. My site is Monster Martial Arts.
