Self-Defense in Reno, NV Starts With You!

Reno, NV: Self-Defense Starts With You!

We hear it all of the time. Mugger steals the purse off of an innocent young woman. Grandma attacked when walking to her car a night. Three high school teens brutally attack one of their peers.

I am honored to have been able to work directly with thousands of families here in Reno, NV over the last 20 years+ that I have been teaching self-defense. Many people confide in me and tell me their most important secrets. I love this because it allows me to form better relationships with my adult martial arts students. However, I really get an up-close and personal look at the evil side of humans.

The Martial Arts, especially the practical, real-world form that we teach at Champion Martial Arts was created and revised to help adults and children alike improve themselves first. A person with low self-esteem and no confidence could know all of the self-defense techniques in the world and never be able to protect himself or herself. Not only that, this person would be a more likely target for a predator.

Let’s compare animals in the wild because, honestly, that’s what these evil predators really are; animals. Does a lion go out and attack the biggest, fastest, and strongest zebra? Or does he go for the easy target? The young one or the injured one.

Who you are inside is your number one defense against attackers.

If you are interested in learning more, or you would like to gets some hands on training, we will be hosting a few monthly seminars. The first is on Gun Defense, then Woman’s Self-Defense, and then Knife Defense. I’m always available to speak with you if you have more questions!

June 27, 2009 Point Karate Tournament – Reno, NV + Rule Change

I posted the link to the tournament information sheet on this website on the homepage.  However, if you have not seen it, you can view all of the Tournament Information Here.

At Champion Martial Arts in Reno, NV, we practice Jujitsu and Ninjitsu rather than Karate.  However, most tournaments are Karate Tournaments.  The only problem that I see with these competitions is that they are usually over too fast and do not have time to develop.

When we host a Sport Jujitsu Tournament, the rules are completely different.  Fighters punch, kick, do throws, takedowns and ground work to include submissions.  These tournaments are a great amount of fun, but it is a little difficult to get competitors to attend them.  That is why I chose to run a Karate Point Fighting Competition instead of Sport Jujitsu.

I like to call my Tournament a Hybrid of the two though.  I want to keep the scoring very close to standard Karate Tournaments; basing it on a “Best of 5 Rounds” setting.  However, I like a more realistic type of fighting that includes punches and kicks that can easily be countered.  Meaning, if I punch you and you punch me, then we both get a point.  It is not based on who was faster.  That is why I chose short rounds that have the points counted at the end of each round.  This way a fighter who stops after getting just one point could very well lose if the other fighter attacks and scores multiple points right after that.

NOTE — RULE CHANGE: I just ran a mock tournament at my school and I have decided that I will shorten the rounds for Kids only to 30 seconds instead of 40 seconds.  The adult divisions will remain at 40 seconds each.  The reason is because 40 seconds seems to be a very long time when you are talking about having up to 5 rounds.
