    Martial Arts: How to Improve Your Muay-Thai Skills

    Did you know that there are 3 easy ways to master your Muay-Thai skills? Let me list down a few forms of improving your skills.

    One is through the use of shadowboxing. This technique is recommended for your footwork and flow. What need to do is move around 360 degrees, this is also a good help for your defense. However, take the time to position your chin and your hands; what height are they supposed to be? As well as the placement of your elbows; and moreover be very considerate of your stance. There is a technique called the mirror shadow box. This technique is very good but you need to make sure that the only reason you are using it is for you to get a feedback on your style and stance. In my observation, there were a few who uses this technique not for the benefits stated above. They have been using this technique for muscle flexing. It seems that some people were much more concerned about how they look than that of their techniques.

    Second is through Bag Work. There are various types of bags to practice with. However, it is recommended that you ask your personal …

    Backpack Boxing Tips – Practice Like a Pro!

    Ever wondered what it takes to be a professional boxer? Apart from having the guts to step into the arena from the start, it takes years of preparation, dedication, training, and determination to succeed.

    Many fighters follow the ‘old school’ approach to training which has been passed down from trainers to combat to trainers etc … It follows the basic principles of strength, flexibility, speed, endurance and explosive power.

    Let’s start with perseverance. Many say that boxers need endurance from marathon runners to keep trying a maximum of 12 rounds. This is achieved by punishing roadwork (running), often in the early hours of the morning when the air is clear and no one is around. There are several different accounts about how far the boxer really ran. Some prefer to run shorter and faster (4-5 miles with speed), while others will run for longer distances (10 miles or more). I think the combination of the two is the best for your preparation – long run initially with hill work to build stamina then shorten the run and increase speed closer to fight the night by finishing with a sprint session for speed.

    Speed, strength and explosive power are achieved through …

    There’s been a resurgence of bed bugs in the past couple years primarily because they’re so easily spread with peoples travel habits. It’s important when travelling that you take precautions so that your luggage isn’t transferring these disgusting little critters into your (hopefully) pest free home.

I hate to sound like a broken record, but this really can’t be stressed enough. You never know where bed bugs will be living.

    Inseparable Destiny – Bags And Women

    When I was a little girl, my father always complained that my mother bought too many bags. To a man like my father, it is ridiculous and crazy to spend most salary on bags just because they are shiny and smart. One big simple handbag is enough. My mother explained at the first time and she showed dozens of reasons; however she gave up later. “I bought bags for I am a woman!” she said. When I grew up, and when I can’t help going into shops and purchasing bags back home, I can totally understand how my dear mom thought about at that time.

    Women to bags are like men to ties. Men wear ties that match their clothes while women carry bags that match their dresses. Ties of varied types stand for different social statues for a male while bags of various-class material represent a female’s personal mood in distinct situations.

    Imagine, you met a woman someday who took a delicate handbag banded by Swarovski crystal to attend an important banquet. Thinking of seldom will she use it in her daily life, you would find it is a necessity in such a big day. This handbag shows that …
