How many people know that there is a Quick-Start Acrobatic Academy, or QSA, in the Martial Arts sector? If you know a little about Martial Arts, then you probably are familiar with a system of self-defense we call Judo.
So, if you have ever been involving yourself in a Judo match, you know what I’m talking about. The person who loses typically does not get up again after a loss. I once saw an old Judoka who did not get up from being thrown, not even once!
I think that is why I said that Judo is not a real sport. It’s a self-defense system, but not a real sport. The types of throws that are thrown in Judo do not come out of the ring.
Acrobatic and Martial Arts teachers all know that a lot of people, and children for that matter; will pick up these martial arts systems and bring them home to their homes and their parents. Those with the systems come up with theories, theories that are only usable for self-defense and are not applicable to real-life situations.
When the parent of a child comes to see a martial arts instructor; they expect the teacher to be able to teach their child how to defend themselves against people that might be a threat to them. They expect that the martial arts instructor will be able to come up with some real techniques that work and do not need any modification.
For example, the judo technique that we just did mention of a person not getting up when they are thrown is one of the most important principles of judo. This particular technique is vital because it is so easy to execute.
The key concept is to stand up again after being thrown. There are three fundamental principles of this technique. The first principle is that the throwing person must stun, which takes place immediately after the throw.
The second principle is that you must be able to control the blood flow. This means that there must be enough time for you to make it through the confusion that ensues. The third and most important principle is that you must have the ability to move quickly to keep from getting seriously injured or killed.
At this point in time, the only Judo technique that is acceptable in a real fight is the standing rear-naked choke. Unfortunately, it is not easy to offer as a stand up has thrown technique. There is no question that you need the ability to move rapidly; and the ability to move quickly is very important.
Standing Rear Naked Choke is a key teaching technique that will help you learn how to protect yourself during a real-life situation. A standing choke is more than just a stand-up throw technique.
Now, you do not have to be a black belt to understand the principles of Jiu-Jitsu or judo. You can easily absorb these concepts without having any training with them.
However, if you can teach them, then you should at least have a basic knowledge of these systems of self-defense. Having an acrobatic academy to learn them in, however, is critical.
