Hello everyone My name is Mike and Thank you for letting us share our Knowledge of

Why Everyone Should be Fit 2 Fight? This is the energy to do whatever you want to do, mentally, physically, and spiritually. Take care of one, and you help boost the other three. Take care of only one, and the other two will suffer. I know big, strong guys who are always afraid and allow their lives to be run by dishonorable people, and I know small, physically weak men (and women) that exhibit extraordinary amounts of brainpower but would decimated in any feat that required physical strength. Real fitness and self-defense requires not only physical power, but the ability to make quick decisions under duress and to keep your integrity intact at all times. Fit 2 Fight is the drive and internal desire that you use to carry yourself throughout your life, and into anything you do. Types of motivation are not limited to your body I'm talking about the love and support of your friends and family, money, time, heat, crises that force you to Mr. Morales Owner of Fit 2 Fight act. Physically: Fit 2 Fight is accelerating an object and applying force to it. Simply put: Gym Co-Founder of R.E.A.C.T. Work/Time. The weight never lies to you. It always knows how weak or how strong you System. Instructor in Hand to are. Pick up a sandbag, kettle bell, barbell, or another person, and you'll see very quickly Hand Combat at D.G.C.F.S. what the weight thinks of you. Mentally: Fit 2 Fight is overcoming whatever obstacles are in your way, no matter who creates them. Once you overcome a challenge, you realize that it is something that no one can take away from you. That's merely more fuel to your fire. Spiritually: Fit 2 Fight is having a powerful internal drive to succeed, driven by yourself and not by anyone else in your life. It is using the strength you have to do good things, and the power to take charge of your life. Success requires no excuses; failure permits no alibis. Fit 2 Fight is...About concentrating on your goals in life that allow do more than you think possible. Obviously, this does not just apply to fitness. Fit 2 Fight is what makes one successful in life. Ask any Soldier, Sailor, Airman, or Marine. Ask anyone who has ever won any Olympic medals. Ask any mother of three who works two jobs every day just to support her kids. It is not merely strength or skill that allows them to succeed, but focus and determination that carries these people through. And so it can Inside D.G.C.F.S. be with you. Fit 2 Fight is about doing the most you can with the time you have. You say Intro to E-news letter 1 you can only workout for 15 minutes four times a week? Great! You can spend up to an Mikes Fitness Conner 2 hour a day? That's good, too. (Note: You don't have to just to get great results, though). Coming event 3 Anyone who claims that they cannot spend an hour a week taking care of their body and Techniques of the month 4 their mind needs to seriously reevaluate their lifestyle and what they're doing. This does Airsoft Products 6 not mean be violent; it means be passionate. It does not mean be destructive; it means Home Invasion Tips 7 be aggressively constructive. It does not mean be consumed by negative energy such as rage or hate or apathy; it means to channel that anger or other negativity and focus it towards a positive goal. As you have likely already guessed, this does not apply to merely health and fitness .Fit 2 Fight is...Using real strength and conditioning that helps you run a fast mile instead of a marathon, dead lift 300 pounds without putting on unnecessary mass, pull yourself over a fence or a wall in a hurry, climb a rope, chase your kids, tackle a hardened criminal, play your favorite sport, hunt terrorists, or anything else you need your fitness for. Do not succumb to old age and inactivity that plagues most people. This isn't just about building muscle and burning fat, either. Nor is it just splitting "weight training" and "cardio" days up. That's what I like to call Pretend Fitness. Pretend Fitness is nothing more than burning calories and training not with functional movements that are useful and applicable in the real world, but on hamster-style machines and with large rubber balls clad in spandex and shown all over infomercials. True Fitness and Self-Defense is about developing endurance, strength, flexibility, speed, power, coordination, balance, and other skill sets that most training programs completely ignore. Also, many of us have forgotten just how to go outside and play. Fitness is that, too. Or at least it should be! The type of fitness I employ is characterized by Page 2

Continue from page 2
Intense, Varied, Functional, Fun. This has driven my philosophy on training for quite some time, and has served both me and those I train very well. Intensity is simply where the results are at. It produces sexy, powerful, and athletic bodies. The benefits to intense and mostly anaerobic/aerobic exercise are many. Just think of combining Weightlifting and Sprinting and the powerful bodies that are forged. On the other hand, the benefits to non-intense and aerobic exercise are few. Think about emaciated and weak marathon runners. Anyone can do intense exercise, as long as they build up to it slowly, safely, and steadily. Intense exercise also saves you time in your workouts, leaving you to go do what you want with the new body and energy you have! Variety is not only the spice of life, but also in training. If you're stuck in a "routine" rut, then usually you will plateau with your training and end up making little to no progress. Combining yoga, tai chi, gymnastics, weightlifting, power lifting, reality based martial arts and sprinting is not only great for you, but allows you to learn a wide variety of skills. By the same token, though, if your training is too varied, then you will not progress at all or progress very, very slowly. Like anything in life, the truth to your best training path is in the middle. You must be varied enough to avoid plateaus, but not so varied that you stall out. Just like training protocols, equipment should be varied, as well. Kettle bells, sandbags, barbells, dumbbells, medicine balls, rowers, gymnastic rings, and even friends who'll let you pick them up all have their place in a training environment. However, the vast majority of machines on the market are designed not to get you in shape, but to make gyms and equipment manufacturers more money while depriving you of proper functionality in training. Functionality is seen at the "hot topic" in the fitness industry today, but I can honestly say that the vast majority of people have absolutely no clue what functional training is. Here's a small test: If training for a perfectly healthy adult does not include the deadlight, squat, some form of overhead press, and basic gymnastic skills, then it is not functional. Period. Those who are against any kind of weight training to build "functional" bodies are simply ignorant to proper weight training protocols and/or proper lifting technique. On the other hand, there are others who use Swiss Balls and plastic rings to great effect to build "core" strength. Give me a break, people! When you can pick up twice your bodyweight off of the ground with no problem whatsoever, then you can use those frilly devices. Finally, FUN is a factor that is too often ignored. Exercise and fitness should not be about boring routines that you plateau on, or just using the same equipment day after day. You should find what you enjoy, and then do it! If an exercise program is not fun and fulfilling for you, you simply won't do it. If you hire a trainer just so you can be pushed, then as soon as that external motivation leaves, you may very well quit that program or go back to an unhealthy lifestyle. You should seek out a trainer who will work to empower you with the ability to design your own fun workouts! Here is where Fit 2 Fight comes into play for YOU. & My goal is to help each and every person I train develop and attain their own realistic health and fitness goals. However, to do that YOU need to contact me NOW. Take that first step and do what you need to do to get yourself back into the shape you want.

Home Invasion Tips
Imagine this scenario. After a long week at work, you are finally able to relax at home with your spouse and two teen-age daughters. You’re in your living room watching TV with your spouse. Your daughters are in their own rooms doing…whatever. Because both of you have worked hard for many years, you are now able to live more comfortably in what you thought to be a safe community. At 9:00PM you hear a knock on the door and your spouse gets up to answer the door. After the door is unlocked you hear a sudden outburst as two strange young men burst through the door and into your living room. As the door crashes open, you see your spouse is being punched and beaten to the floor. Before you have time react you are overcome by physical force and threats of harm to you and your family. The two men are brandishing guns and are shouting obscene threats and commands simultaneously as they push you onto the couch. One of the men quickly searches the house for other occupants while the other stands guard over you. Your mind is racing. Will we be killed? Will these attackers beat us or molest our daughters? The level of terror and anxiety is enormous and will cause victims to sometimes act irrationally. Some will freeze and become incapacitated from fright. Others will instinctively resist and try to fight back. Others will run away if possible. Psychologists have labeled this phenomenon as the “fight or flight syndrome.” The first thirty seconds are the most critical to your family’s survival.

What Would You Do?
Most people have never pondered this question for themselves or with their family. How will I react under similar circumstances? How will my family react independent of me? How will we react together? How you naturally react depends on many factors: your sex, age, physical condition, culture, personality, how you process information, how you react under extreme pressure, special training, skills, and past experience in responding to aggression. Most people don’t know for sure how they will respond to a personal crisis until it occurs. Many are surprised afterwards by their behavior as having been heroic, calm, cowardly, or stupid. Would you try to overpower the invaders? Would you go for your gun? Would you try to activate an alarm? Would you try to escape and call for help? Would you comply with their demands and hope they don’t hurt you? Would you allow them to tie you up? Would you allow them to take a family member away from the home? Would you risk death to save your family from harm? The response possibilities are endless, but most fall into three general response possibilities. You can resist the assault; comply with all commands; or you can try to stay calm, wait, and resist, comply, or flee as the scenario evolves. One thing is clear, there is no one single correct response to a life-threatening home invasion scenario. The choice is personal, based on your own assessment of your physical and mental capabilities and your belief as to the level of eminent danger. Sometimes fighting and screaming works, especially if there are neighbors who will intervene or call the police. It makes no sense to risk fighting if you are physically incapable of doing so effectively. Total compliance sometimes works. The invaders might leave you unharmed and just leave. However, compliance may increase the duration of the invasion and therefore increase the potential for molestation. You need to thoughtfully consider how you or your family members might act under the circumstances and plan accordingly. Page 7

What Works
Having a family and neighborhood plan is essential. If you develop a home security plan and talk about it with your family and neighbors, the chances of acting appropriately and getting help are greatly improved. Prevention works best. Harden your home or apartment with strong doors and locks and three-inch screws in the lock strike plate and door hinges. See my web page on home security tips for more details. Use a wide-angle peephole and instruct everyone in your family not to open the door to strangers. Chain latches are ineffective as a barrier, so use your peephole to look outside before opening the door. Be suspicious of someone claiming to be making a delivery that you did not order or use other tricks to get you to open the door. Fortification of rear doors, sliding glass doors, and garage doors are also important. This gives you the necessary time to phone 911, sound audible alarms, or arm yourself.

Local Alarms
Audible alarm sirens can prevent home invasion...if they are set. Alarm systems can be designed so that perimeter door and window sensors are activated while the home is occupied. The alarm can be set to instantly go off upon unauthorized entry. Be prepared to give a prearranged duress password to the alarm company if they call. Most alarm panels have an emergency panic button that will function much like a 911 call and will instruct your alarm monitoring company to call the police. Alarm company lawn and window signs help advertise that your house is wired and capable of getting a response from the police. These alarm signs and decals offer good deterrence value and may cause the robber to select another victim.

Automatic Phone Dialers
Automatic dial telephones, that can call 911 in speakerphone mode, can be effective in getting police assistance. If a home invader breaks in you may have just a split second to push the 911 direct-dial button on your telephone. If you dial in speakerphone mode the police dispatcher can listen in on what is going on in the room. Every telephone in your home should be programmed with this feature and all family members should be instructed how to make this emergency call. Your home address will automatically pop up on the police dispatcher screen and an officer should be dispatched even if the phone wire is cut. All 911 hang-up calls are supposed to be investigated by the police because of this type of scenario.

Have an Escape Plan
If someone in the household can escape and call for help, the home invaders will have lost their advantage of having privacy and time. To some, running away from your family in crisis is distasteful, especially to men or women with children. However, the alternative might mean being handcuffed or tied-up or otherwise incapacitated and left to watch in horror as your family is molested. If you have a plan for escaping, make sure you include were to run and what to say. Sometimes a radical escape measure pays off, in life and death circumstances, like diving through a plate glass window, jumping from a balcony or climbing onto the roof. Although you might sustain minor injuries you must weigh them against your chance of survival with the assailants. Home invaders will sometimes threaten harm to children to get adults to comply with their demands. But at the same time, children are often overlooked as potential rescuers and sometimes are not as well guarded. If the opportunity presents itself, a trained child can dial 911, activate an alarm panic button, or escape to the neighbor’s house to summon the police. If they are capable, they should do it. Page 8

Never Stop Thinking
Keeping a cool head is important, even in dire circumstances. If you can keep your wits about you one can increase their options by waiting for the right moment to act. Always be thinking and re-evaluating the situation as it evolves. At first there may be no chance for escape, but after a while you may see an opening. Fighting may not be wise, however the attackers may let their guard down once you appear to comply. If you decide to strike a blow, do it fast, suddenly, and forceful to the nose, eyes, or throat without concern for the damage you might inflict. While the assailant is momentarily stunned, make your escape. Don’t stand there waiting to throw more punches or gather family members. You might ask, won't that cause them to harm me for sure? Maybe, if they catch you. This is an option that must be considered. Sometimes hours into the siege, an opportunity arises where you can hit the automatic dial on the telephone or alarm panic button without being seen. Always be looking for that chance.

What Doesn’t Always Work
Screaming and shouting is the easiest and most natural thing that almost everyone can do. Screaming can alert savvy neighbors to call the police or the noise alone may scare off the home invaders. However, home invaders know this and will be prepared to make you stop screaming, by force, if necessary. One of the first threats you will hear is, “if you scream I’ll kill you.” If you can’t escape, but are out in public, scream your head off. Scream things like, “call 911.” Visit with your neighbors so they know that you have a family plan and teach them how to react when you need help. Handguns and pepper spray can provide a means of self-defense in a life-threatening situation. Homeowners have successfully defended their families in the past from home invaders using such weapons. However, sometimes homeowners have lost their weapons to home invaders because they couldn't get to them in time to use them. Most chemical sprays are tucked away somewhere and many handguns are kept unloaded or locked up to prevent children from getting their hands on them. During a home invasion, you cannot always count on your ability to get to these weapons before being injured yourself. Ordinary household products can work in self defense. Chemical fire extinguishers work great to disorient the robber. Fighting with the intruders sometimes works, especially if you have some training and are physically fit. But for most, fighting doesn't work because the victim was pre-selected for their lack of fight capability. In a lifethreatening situation there are no rules for fighting in self defense. The idea is not to stand toe-to-toe and duke it out. All you need is one incapacitating blow to the nose, eyes, or throat to allow time to get out of there and call for help. Take a self-defense class together with your family so all can learn the proper techniques and can practice the procedures. A practiced technique has a better chance of being used effectively in a crisis. Faking illness doesn’t always work especially in the home. Most home invaders don’t care about your welfare anyway. Faking illness might work in public or while being transported or while fighting off molesters, but don’t count on it as you only choice. You must decide in advance which technique to use depending on your acting skills.

What Not to Do
Don’t ever try to pull a weapon on an armed perpetrator who has you covered with a handgun unless you feel it’s your last chance. Don’t ever agree to be transported somewhere else like to an ATM machine or other location unless you feel it's a life or death decision. The second crime scene is almost always more violent than in your home. If you have a choice, never agree to be tied-up, handcuffed or be placed in the trunk of a car because it takes away most of your self defense options. Don’t ever follow an intruder once they leave your home. Leave that for the police. Don’t fight over property loss, it can be replaced…your life cannot.
