  • 4 Keys to Unlock Your Metabolism Part 2

    People that actively participate in the National Health Registry Surveys say they get about 36% of their calories from complex and simple carbohydrates, and only about 49% of calories from protein. Fat makes up about 15% of their diet. People in the Registry also say they consume 2,300 to 2,900 calories a day on average, but that number is probably lower than what they actually eat. Although a lot of people may think of only pasta and bread when they hear the word “carbohydrates,” complex carbohydrates are in many foods, not only grains but also in beans and many vegetables.

  • Bullying for Kids and Adults

    I get a number of Kid Krav Maga students that are concerned about bullying, the most common question I get from parents and adults is “How do I prevent bullying?”. The answer usually takes them off guard, “YOU usually can’t. You can intercede, but the person in the situation is the one who can truly prevent it.” Though I don’t teach a traditional martial art, the core principles and student outcomes are still the same. Students are strongly encouraged to avoid physical encounters and instead taught avoidance, awareness and de-escalation techniques. Also with the continued training, the leadership and self confidence skills that develop dissolve bully ....
