Grand Master Daniel Baez - 1970s Throwback

Thursday, February 01, 2018

For more than 50 years, Grand Master Daniel Baez has been walking the path of a martial arts practitioner. First in Karate, then Taekwondo. Later Hapkido, and a few other disciplines. Here we see him in the center along side life long friends and fellow practitioners. Jiujitsu, Taekwondo and Karate posing together as masters of their own discipline.

GM Baez often tells us that in the early days of competition you had to fight practitioners of various styles, so to prepare, you had to study and learn as much as you could in those disciplines. I guess it was kind of what MMA fighters have to do these days.

Benefits of learning self-defense

Saturday, June 17, 2017

Learning self-defense is a life changing experience available to anyone regardless of age or physical conditioning.

People who have taken self-defense classes often report feeling better prepared in case of a violent attack or sexual assault. They also report feeling empowered in everyday situations – like when walking alone at night. Self-defense training helps to reduce vulnerability by helping students to be aware of their surroundings and teaching them how to react to a variety of situations.

Here are some of the benefits of learning self-defense:
  • Safety
    You will learn how to disable and protect yourself from an attacker.
  • Awareness
    Enhanced awareness keeping you alert and ideally avoiding a potentially dangerous situation.
  • Self-confidence
    A natural benefits of martial arts training is an increased in self-confidence allowing you to get out there and enjoy more of the world.
  • Get fit
    Lose weight and gain greater muscle tone in an environment that is never boring, unlike training at home or even a gym.
  • Balance and flexibility
    As we age it is important we remain flexible and with improved mobility.
  • Self-discipline
    Another great side effect of training is that it forces you to be more discipline not just in your training but in all aspects of your life.
  • Learn new things
    Facing new challenges and situations will prepare you for the unexpected as well as keeping you engaged and motivated to train.
  • Socialize
    Meet and become friends with people who share your interest and life values. Martial arts is a life long journey where you will make new friends.

For over 20 years, Grandmaster Baez has taught men and women how to defend themselves. If you live in Cooper City, Davie, Plantation or Pembroke Pines, we invite you to come see our studio and try a free class. Contact us to schedule it.

For how long should one take self-defense classes?

Tuesday, May 16, 2017
This is a question we get from men and women who come to see us and try the free self-defense introductory class.

Like anything else, the longer your do it, the more you practice, the better you will be at it.  Now any amount of self-defense training can be beneficial. We have seen many news stories like the jogger who fought off an attacker successfully in part because of a few lessons she had taken a couple weeks before.

Ideally you want to make self-defense training a regular thing as part of a healthier life style and physical training. The benefits to you are many and will impact every aspect of your life.
