19 Jan Therapy Is Expensive, But Krav Maga Is Not
Did you know that most New Year’s resolutions are broken by January 17th? Barely two weeks into the New Year, several individuals have picked up a fresh cigarette, eaten a chocolate bar, quit their gym membership, and generally fallen into their bad habits yet again.
Following a year of social and political divide like 2020, we all do have one thing in common: we are pissed. That’s right, in one way or another, we are all stressed, frustrated, frightened, and ready to punch a wall. Mental health seems to have taken a backseat to fear and anger, leaving many unsure about what comes next.
As a response to this overwhelming stress, many resolutions have transitioned from physical improvements to our health, such as more exercise, to mental improvements which can include seeking out therapy. However, the physical and mental components of wellness are very much so connected, so the fact that many must sacrifice one for the other due to cost or time does not always help relieve the stress we all feel.
So how does one heal their mental anguish, improve their physical health, and ultimately maintain their New Year’s resolution? By taking back control, and what better way to do that than by punching something?
At Precision Krav Maga, we see a common thread: every individual, whether having practiced Krav Maga before or not, is most excited to hit something. When you strike a bag, you are converting emotional turmoil into physical productivity, releasing anger in a healthier way than merely trying to suppress it and “move forward.” Remember, physical and mental wellness are interlocked; the brain controls everything about you, so at one time or another, you must release your emotions.
Similar to therapy, your experience here is unique. You are not benchmarked against someone bigger than you, stronger than you, or more experienced in Krav Maga. Your progress is unique and valued as a member of our team of students. This is a safe space; a safe space in which you can hit and kick things, of course.
So while you may be worrying about the year ahead, concerned if the pandemic will ever end, consider a class at Precision Krav Maga. Learning a real world self-defense skill places control back in your hands, in more ways than one.
