Meditation For Warriors: Programming Your Brain For Self-Protection!

Warrior Meditation For Self-Defense
Jeff Anderson
Jeff Anderson, Editor

Anyone engaged in a high-risk job or activity, anyone who does competitive sports, and anyone who simply needs to be focused for heavy physical or mental activity throughout the day, can benefit from what we’ve referred to on this blog before as warrior meditation.

This is a means of calming your emotions and clearing your mind so that you are better focused and more alert.

This foundational meditation readies you for each day, setting you up for the most success you can create, regardless of the particular battlefield, literal or metaphorical, where this day will take place.

But meditation can also be used to program your brain for success, improving your daily training outcomes… as well as your outcomes in life in general.

Not long ago I spoke again to famed martial arts expert Loren Christensen about “using the force” this way.

Here is what he had to tell me about using meditation to program your warrior’s brain for success.

The Benefits Of Meditation For Warriors On Self-Protection!

Remember that the primary function of meditation is to help you achieve both a calm, peaceful mind as well as a profoundly relaxed body.

Once you achieve this, you will find that it feels wonderful.

It’s just an amazing sensation.

That’s an important standalone benefit and purpose of warrior meditation.

The positive physical sensation it produces helps encourage you while making you better able to handle your day and its challenges.

Your daily meditation can range from a minute to five minutes to thirty minutes, which means it doesn’t even have to take up much of your time.

Warrior Meditation Benefits

One of the side benefits of warrior meditation is this:

When your mind is deeply calm, you are highly susceptible to positive commands you give yourself, such as how to go about your day safely and with alert focus.

Too often we think negatively about our skills, allowing our fears and our doubts to destroy our focus and confidence.

These negative thoughts can therefore harm us when we must rely most strongly on our training, our instincts, and our reflexes, such as during battle or other dangerous situations.

Practicing Warrior Meditation

You can conduct a simple warrior meditation session almost anywhere and any time.

You first make yourself relaxed so you are susceptible to positive commands.

Calm your mind.

Use four-count tactical breathing if you want, or any other breathing and relaxation method you might know.

Then give yourself commends that fit your needs, whether those needs are safety on the street, focus and resolve on the battlefield, the will to push yourself during a competition, or whatever else.

To survive, to succeed, you must be positively focused.

Some positive commands include…

  • I am aware of my surroundings, all 360 degrees.
  • I will always give new surroundings a quick tactical examination.
  • I’ll be aware of potential trouble spots.
  • I’ll be aware of everyone around me.
  • I will be cognizant of anyone who makes me feel uncomfortable.
  • I am confident in my verbal skills and my physical skills.
  • I am skilled with weapons.
  • I am skilled in empty hand techniques.
  • I am calm in chaotic situation.
  • I will fight all out when necessary, and I will keep fighting as though I’m in them.

By using these methods and these positive commands, you can immediately create better and more positive focus and awareness.

This, in turn, will help you to stay on task and goal-oriented no matter what adversity you face.

This means that warrior meditation can benefit you now and in the future, no matter when and where you need it.

Warrior Meditation Is For Everyone!

Remember: Meditation can help anyone in a high-risk job or activity, anyone in competition, and anyone who needs to focus on heavy physical or mental activity.

The primary function of meditation is to help you achieve a calm, peaceful mind and a profoundly relaxed body.

Meditating also leaves you highly susceptible to giving yourself commands.

Real Street Fights: Destroy Your Opponent With “Chop Kicking”!

street fight training / best street fight techniques: chop kicking

Jeff Anderson

The thing about martial arts is that there really are no new techniques.

There are only new ways of applying them to destroying your opponent.

Loren Christensen is an experienced martial artist with DECADES of time and training spent in self-defense and law enforcement work.

I figured if anyone had some interesting stories to relate about martial arts techniques and REAL fighting on the street, it would be Loren.

Here’s a story he related to me about something called “chop-kicking” that I’m reproducing here in his words.

Destroy Your Opponent With “Chop-Kicking”!

street fight training / best street fight techniques: chop kicking
street fight training / best street fight techniques: chop kicking
Loren Christensen

Several years ago, I befriended the former editor of Karate Illustrated magazine, Renardo Barden, who had moved to my city to finish a novel.

We used to fish for trout together in one of the many rivers in the Pacific Northwest, and he would tell me stories of martial artists he had met in his job.

He was especially impressed over a kickboxer who was skilled at chop-kicking his opponent’s legs with his roundhouse kicks.

The fighter told him that when the muscles in either the front or back of the upper leg were struck at an angle, it shocked the muscle fibers and debilitated the victim.

Thinking this was interesting, I chop-kicked a training partner’s leg with my shin the next time we sparred.

Here’s what I learned…

Lesson #1: He’ll Go Down… HARD

To my amazement, both of his legs crumpled and he crashed to the floor (he was sort of mad about this, but that’s another story).

Although my kick was fairly controlled, it definitely took the fight out of the guy.

Since then, I have kicked others with it and every one of them dropped.

I don’t know if the impact is really shocking muscle fibers, but it definitely buckles the legs.

A friend of mine, a veteran kenpo instructor named Frank Garza, favors this kick and, in fact, had used it during a sparring session the night before I contacted him for his comments.

“It works great,” he said. “I prefer to hit the back of the leg at an upward angle with my shin because it seems to send a shock all the way to the hip joint and tightens the tendon to the butt.”

Lesson #2: Chop-Kicking Kills Legs

A chop-kick can more easily penetrate the leg and therefore transmit shock to the muscles and bone.

I have hit sparring partners, and I’ve hit people I was throwing out of a club where I worked as a bouncer.

All of them would start limping immediately and complain of a pulled hamstring muscle.

A downward strike to the back of the leg doesn’t seem to have the same effect, probably because the upper leg is much more muscular than the lower leg.

“When striking the front of the leg, the quadriceps,” Frank continued, “I prefer to use a downward angle with a shin kick. It seems to me that the muscles are weakest near the knee. It’s also an easier target to hit, and there is less chance of the kick being grabbed as is the case when kicking closer to the hip.”

Lesson #3: The Upper Leg Is WEAK

In conclusion, Frank noted that, “It’s interesting that even though we can condition our shins to take impact, it’s much more difficult to condition our upper leg to take blows.”

As mentioned, it’s a common reaction for your kicked opponent to drop to the ground when struck at an angle in the thigh.

Many of the guys I’ve hit with it couldn’t continue sparring because of severe cramping or an intense weakness in the limb.

Another reaction is for the recipient to bend over at the waist and lift the struck leg in an attempt to protect it.

Though he hasn’t fallen to the ground, he is virtually helpless and may be hopping around on one leg.

If you get a hopper, consider chop-kicking his support leg.

Hey, make life miserable for the guy and he might think twice about trying to hurt someone else!

Self-Defense For “Seniors” – Street Fights For Those Over 40 & Over 50

Jeff AndersonHave you ever watched the Ultimate Fighting Championship, or are you a big mixed martial arts fan?

Well, a lot of people are.

The popularity of mixed martial arts has really hammered its way into our culture when it comes to how people think about fighting, whether it’s as a sport or for self-defense.

The problem with the mixed martial arts approach to self-defense is not that the techniques don’t work.

They obviously do in MMA fights… but to make them work for you, you’ve got to be strong, healthy, and well-conditioned, like the guys you see fighting in MMA.

At the very least, you’d have to be stronger and better conditioned than your opponent in a street fight… right?

Well, where does that leave you if you’re an “older” guy?

Are you just out of luck, doom to be victimized because you’re “old”?

Not long ago I spoke again to famed martial arts expert Loren Christensen about self-defense for the over 40, over 50 crowd.

Here is what he had to tell me about surviving as an older person when self-defense is considered a younger guy’s game.

Tips For Self-Defense Over Forty & Over Fifty

Self-Defense For Seniors: Street Fighting For Over 40, Over 50 “Old” Guys

 

Loren Christensen

Now, you can tell yourself that you’re going to put in the time on the heavy bag, you’re going to eat right, you’ll do your sit-ups and push-ups like a good boy or girl, but sooner or later you’re going to start to get older.

I won’t use the word old, but many know exactly what it’s like to get older, right?!

As you get into your forties and fifties and beyond, hard hitting mixed martial arts systems start to look a little bit less like an option for self-defense.

Don’t think that the people around you don’t understand that, either.

There’s a stigma of being an easy target as you get older.

We know that criminals like to look at older people as weaker and an easy mark.

There are some things that can be done to project a “don’t screw with me” attitude to avoid being victimized, even though you don’t have that back alley biker brawler look.

Walk With Confidence

What does that mean when people say, “walk with confidence?”

I think a good example, regardless of what you may think of them, is to look at some of our politicians.

The older politicians all walk with this pronounced youthful gait, the good swing of the arms, their head up, they’re alert, they’re taking in everything around them, they’ve got a little bounce to their step.

It’s a put on, that’s for sure, but it’s very effective.

It has an effective look and conveys this sense of youth and ready to get the job done, that kind of stuff.

That’s the kind of thing you want to do.

When the doors are closed, these people probably collapse into their sofas.

Nonetheless, it does convey that look that you want to convey, so that the potential criminal out there eyeing a target is less likely to pick you and more likely to pick somebody else who doesn’t look as strong, aware and alert.

Walk In Pairs And Groups

The other thing is to walk in pairs and groups.

Most have heard of that.

There’s definitely power in that, even if you’re 80 years old.

Two people walking together can add more confusion to an assault or a robbery by a bad guy.

He has two people to watch, two of whom probably have cell phones and can call the police, or they can go in opposite directions, leaving the bad guy to be more easily identified.

Walk in pairs.

Walk in threes if you can, whenever you get that option.

Focus On Awareness

The older you are, the more wisdom you’ve accrued over the years.

Throughout the years, you’ve probably been in situations—whether you were law enforcement, or you’ve been in the military or even just as you get older, the more aware of your surroundings you become, because you maybe look to try to avoid tripping over things more.

Your awareness does get heightened out of necessity.

It’s just a matter of using that wisdom and that sixth sense to really think about and be aware of where you are.

Don’t just look at it as “I might trip over that curb,” or “Oh there’s the stairs; I want to avoid those.”

Be aware of what else might be around the corner, in the parking lot or even of the dark spots of the parking lot.

Expand that wisdom and awareness to other areas outside you.

When you are already older, you know that your odds of going toe-to-toe with a younger, bigger, stronger person have already decreased, and to combat that, a lot of people are into weapons of some sort.

You may be a firearms person, or you may carry a knife.

That doesn’t mean that you’re going to be able to get to it quick enough to be able to defend yourself, though.

That’s what makes awareness so important.

All three of these things are important when it comes to protecting yourself as you age.

They’re not the only things you can do, of course… but they’re some of the better ones.

Start thinking now… because, sooner or later (if we’re lucky), we ALL get older.

(And that’s a good problem to have.)

Real Street Fight Training: 3 Tips To Punch Faster And Harder!

Real Street Fight Training -Hit Harder In A Fight

Jeff Anderson

To defeat an attacker, especially one that’s bigger and stronger than you, you need to know not only the instant destruction points that will take them out quickly, but also the close quarters tactics that will allow you to hit with extreme power.

It’s easy enough to learn those targets, and with practice you can become a master of technique for close counter strikes.

But what’s the secret to developing bulldozer-like power that will make your enemy see stars with every punch or kick?

Einstein had the answer when he came up with his formula:

Energy or power equals mass times velocity squared.

What this means to you is that velocity — or speed, not size and strength — is what matters when it comes to creating maximum power.

So, how can you train for speed and deliver more power in all of your strikes?

Not long ago I spoke again to famed martial arts expert Loren Christensen about how to increase your fighting speed.

Here is a run-down of what he had to tell me.

Street Fight Training: 3 Tips To Strike Faster And Harder!

Real Street Fight Training -Hit Harder In A Fight
Real Street Fight Training -Hit Harder In A Fight
Loren Christensen

There are a lot of myths about fighting speed.

If you look up “speed hitting” on YouTube you see a lot of really ridiculous stuff.

You see guys turning their hands like little eggbeaters.

If they were to bend over and put their arms in a tub of potatoes, they’d make mashed potatoes.

The person they’re doing it on goes, “Whoa! Whoa!”

He backs up and he’s all amazed at the speed.

The puncher is doing it fast, but how effective is that?

(There’s one style that does that quite a bit.)

It is just speed for the sake of speed, without having any thought of hitting hard or hitting to a specific target.

Then there’s the other kind of speed.

That’s speed that complements other elements, such as your body alignment, your skeletal alignment, your balance, your ability to penetrate into a target, your fighting strategy.

When you can complement those elements with great reaction speed, perception speed, and physical speed, THEN you have a NASTY technique.

Self-defense is all about accuracy.

It’s all about dropping people by hitting specific targets.

There are also vulnerable targets you can hit.

Even if the person can’t feel those blows, he will still react to them because they are targets that debilitate, or cause unconsciousness, or cause a person to lose the stability in their legs — that sort of thing.

So it’s all about targets.

More importantly, it’s about penetration to vulnerable targets.

Here are three tips to get faster:

Tip #1: Don’t Go Too Fast Too Soon

The biggest mistake people make in training is by going too fast too soon.

It is easy to do, but you don’t want to start off that way.

Slow down so that you can learn all the nuances of the technique, or combination.

You want to make sure you have proper hip rotation, which is really key.

You also want to make sure that you have good body alignment, that you have good balance and penetration, that you’re closing or crossing the gap properly and safely, and that you’re escaping after you do your damage.

Tip #2: Make Your Exit As Fast As Your Entry

Another mistake is if you come at your attacker and hit, hit, hit, and then stay there and admire your work.

Get out of there.

That guy may have absorbed your attack.

He may have eaten your blows and is not affected by them, and he starts hitting you back.

So get in there, do your thing, and move back out.

Tip #3: Slow Down To Get Faster

The fastest way to fix these things is simply to slow down.

Part of being mature and wise in the martial arts is to control yourself.

Take your time.

You’ll get faster sooner if you go slow in the beginning.

Create that physical pattern that comes from doing repetitions, and specifically combinations.

Do the combinations over and over and over again and pretty soon you’ll find yourself starting to speed up just a little bit.

If you have a partner and he says, “You’re looking pretty good. I think you can pick up the speed,” or you can be really honest with yourself in the mirror, then you can slowly start to speed up.

Slowly start to pick up your speed so you don’t lose your accuracy.

If you start to have problems, slow down again.

That speed will come faster if you take your time building it up.

Self Defense Over 50

Self Defense Over 50

One of the most frequent questions we get from listeners and readers when it comes to self defense is…

“Can an older person really defeat a younger, stronger attacker in a real fight?”

But frankly, it’s the wrong question.

A better question is, “What specific tactics can an older person rely on to completely destroy that overconfident piece of sh*t who thinks I’m an easy target?”

Now THAT I can work with!

Solo Street Fight Self-Defense Training? These 3 Training Aids Will Help…

BOB Training Dummy Drills
Jeff Anderson
Jeff Anderson, Editor

“C’mon… can you REALLY learn self-defense skills without going to a martial arts school?”

I hear this all the time from people who wonder if it’s possible to train solo and still actually learn enough valuable skills to protect themselves in a real street fight.

Well, I can tell you that you absolutely CAN train by yourself and still be ready to take on an attacker… and I was recently chatting with former cop and legendary martial arts expert Loren Christensen he shared with me…

The 3 Best Pieces Of “Self-Defense Training Equipment” To Survive A Real Street Fight

BOB Training Dummy Drills

Without a doubt, getting in-person training in the martial arts is the best way to learn to protect yourself.

However, not everyone has those opportunities.

Maybe you don’t have the time… maybe you don’t have the money… or maybe there’s some other reason you can’t go to your local martial arts school to train each week.

In many cases, the training that you have in your area may not even be something that’s practical enough to save your life in a violent attack.

This leads more and more people to turn to quality DVD instruction in the combat arts, and to take advantage of whatever else they can to train.

Often, this means solo self-defense training drills.

But how can you improve your self-defense skills on your own, through solo training drills, to make yourself a better fighter?

There are three critical pieces of equipment that can make your solo training drills more effective, even on a tight budget…

1. The Heavy Bag Or B.O.B. Training Dummy

The heavy bag is really a very versatile tool for solo training drills – and if you want to make your self-defense training more realistic, I suggest getting a “Body Opponent Bag” or BOB training dummy that looks like a real person.

You can get both of these from most local sporting goods stores, or from online retailers or online classifieds (where exercise and fitness equipment is often available very cheaply when it is previously owned).

Using a heavy bag or BOB, you can work power and you can work speed.

You can practice both punches and kicks.

You can make it move and strike it as you pass it or as it passes you.

You can take it off its hook and use it on the ground to simulate a groundfighting scenario.

You can also use it on the ground to facilitate training low-line kicking.

2. The Mirror

A mirror makes your solo training more effective because it gives you vital feedback.

If you do a technique wrong, it will show you.

If you do that technique right, it will show you that, too.

If you want to do a combination, and you don’t have an instructor, you can use a training DVD or a qualified online instructor and them replicate what you see in the mirror.

3. Your Imagination

The most important tool you can use for training alone, for basically”teaching yourself to fight,” is your imagination.

This one is the most important when training by yourself.

You need to be able to picture that assailant in front of you, in the air, on the bag, on the ground, or wherever you happen to be.

  • See his attacks.
  • See him blocking you.
  • See his reaction.
  • Picture every part of a fight unfolding.

It will take you a little while to get there, but once your imagination is developed, it will be well worth it — and it will enhance your solo training immensely.

Why True “Warriors” Add Meditation To Their Tactical Training Tool Box

Jeff Anderson=== From The Editor===

When people train in the martial arts and in combatives, they naturally put a LOT of faith in their fighting skills… which is human nature.

Something like meditation may seem fake or like “using the Force” … but according to famed martial arts expert Loren Christensen, it’s anything but.

Done correctly, warrior meditation has some very real benefits.

Loren was happy to explain to us how it can make you a better fighter…

Why True “Warriors” Add Meditation
To Their Tactical Training Tool Box

yoda_meditation

 

In a small town named Hillsboro near Portland, Oregon, a couple of the police officers there got into a shooting.

They returned fire and quickly turned the tables on the armed suspect.

Business as usual, right?

What’s most interesting about this story is that in the follow up comments from the department, it was the officers’ special training that was credited with empowering them with the calm demeanor needed to survive such an extremely adrenalized life-or-death scenario.

So what WAS this “special tactical training” that helped save their lives?

Was it a new “shoot house”?  A new gizmo for their guns? An expensive tactical course on the tax-payers’ dime?

Nope… it was the “meditation practice” the entire department had begun experimenting with – and you can achieve the same tactical calmness to survive any kind of crisis or attack…

Meditation – It’s Not Just For Gurus Anymore…

Ok, I get it… an “awesome meditation session” isn’t exactly the first thing guys are bragging about down at the local gun range.

And that’s too bad because, when you strip it all down, surviving any kind of attack is as much a “mental game” as it is about techniques and tactics.

I mean think about it…

Attacks are fast, brutal, and will send your adrenaline through the roof, right?

But if you’re able to respond with a calm mind, you’re better able to think clearly… react quickly… make better decisions… and shoot accurately.

In other words, you fight better and increase your chances for survival when you learn how to master a calm mind.

“How Quickly Will I See Tactical Results From Meditation?”

One of the misconceptions about meditation is that it takes a long time to start noticing the benefits.

Makes sense, right?  I mean who wants to wait for weeks, months (or years!) before seeing some serious gains in your empty-hand fighting skills, working with firearms, taking down felons or terrorists, or facing down an opponent in the ring?

The good news is that you’re very likely to see immediate results once you get started.

Even better… the longer you continue your meditation practice, the more results you see and the deeper the benefits you’ll notice.

In other words, the quick results are encouraging… but those results get better with time and with practice.

This makes meditation a “self-reinforcing activity” that you’ll be motivated to continue.

“Ok, So How Do I Start A Tactical Meditation Practice?”

Ok Grasshopper… it really doesn’t have to be difficult to start a simple meditation practice.

A simple example is “combat breathing” that officers are taught in order to slow the heartbeat and reverse the effects of adrenaline.

  • Breathe in counting 1, 2, 3, 4
  • Stop and hold your breath counting 1, 2, 3, 4
  • Exhale counting 1, 2, 3, 4
  • Repeat 3-5 times

Use this whenever you’re feeling stressed about something just to test it out – but doing it consciously each day will make a believer out of you that it’s effective even when you’re not in the middle of a crisis.

There are more simple-yet-effective meditation methods you can use anywhere (even down at the range right before shooting) and will give you amazing results, but I’ll save that for another time.

The Three Most Important Pieces of Equipment For Solo Training Drills

Receiving individual and group instruction in self-defense is obviously a huge benefit to the student.

Solo Training Drills Equipment: The Heavy Bag

The first item that makes your solo training drills more effective is the heavy bag.

You can get a heavy bag almost anywhere, from your local sporting goods store, to online retailers, to online classifieds (where exercise and fitness equipment is often available very cheaply when it is previously owned).

The heavy bag is really a very versatile tool for solo training drills.

Using a heavy bag in your solo training drills, you can work power and you can work speed.

Solo Training Drills Equipment: Your Imagination

The final solo training drills tool is your imagination.

This one is the most important when training by yourself.

You need to be able to picture that assailant in front of you, in the air, on the bag, on the ground, or wherever you happen to be.

See his attacks. See him blocking you.
