The LK philosophy off the mats

Gym Bag

Life can be challenging. Everyone is fighting something, but in this family, no one fights alone. You may never step on the mat or in the cage and fight. But we all deal with family and relationship issues, work and career demands, finances and bills. Life can seem like a daily fight. So how then can Lightning Kicks help you?

Lightning Kicks life lessons learned in the dojo transfer beautifully into your day-to-day life. Even if you never even have to defend yourself or loved ones physically.

Two of the most important life lessons that you get to put in practice daily at Lightning Kicks are the concepts of non-resistance and flow.

Although it takes a long time to learn and even longer to master, I’ll do my best to give you a brief run down on these concepts. Lightning Kicks will teach you not to use force against force and to be present in the moment. Utilizing tactics, techniques, and mental fortitude to overcome overwhelming force is key. Using the opponent’s (or life’s) aggression and redirecting it into an advantages position for you is a much more efficient and effective way of handling it. To be effective you need to be present and living in the moment. You cannot dwell on the mistake that lead you to the position you are currently in. You also cannot fixate on the opponents’ potential attack or positioning. That will minimize your options. You will be able to logically assess your situation and potential escapes when you are present in the current moment.

We would love to be in your corner, the first step can be the most intimidating. Reach out and let’s chat about getting you started on the amazing Lightning Kicks journey.
