This Woke Me Up From A Dead Sleep!
I woke up this morning with a jolt, I immediately looked over to my clock on my bed stand and sure as sh*t, it was 8:02am...
First time in I don't know how long...
Luckily, I didn't have anywhere to be except my workout. Thank god, no appointments or trainings scheduled!
You wouldn't have known it when my eyes snapped open, it was like I was back in school, late for the bus or in my corporate days late for work!
Funny how old habits die hard! It took several minutes for me to lose that feeling of dread in my stomach...
This is a good example of what I often talk about when teaching how to save your bacon when your hip deep in hot water and the odds are not in your favor!
They Say Timing's Everything...
They say that timing is everything.
The same holds true when it comes to protecting yourself.
Even the best technique deployed at the wrong time will be less effective, if not ineffective all together.
When it comes to real life, there are two basic types of timing:
I. Technique timing
II. Situational timing
Technique timing is the timing used in the application of whatever the technique is being used.
(Believe it or not, that's really the easy one!)
The other timing is the situational timing. WHEN the technique is to be used. That's the timing that can be the pip so to speak.
Yes, yes, of course technique timing is important, but even more so is the situational timing.
It'd be telling the perfect punchline out of time with the joke, or being a really good kisser, but doing it at the wrong time during your first date.
Everything has its place and time.
The time to do your 'perfect' martial arts pistol disarm isn't when the assailant is bearing down on you waiting for you to so much as twitch to blow you away Angry Johnnie...
Remember that old song, "Kung Fu Fighting?"
Everybody was Kung Fu Fighting
Those kids were fast as lightning
In fact, it was a little bit frightening
But they fought with expert timing
So, How About You?!
How's your timing?
Do you know when to say the right thing at the right time?
Do you know how to find the rhythm of the situation to maximize your potential for success?
Having the perfect technique (if there is such a thing) isn't enough, it's even more important to have 'expert timing' (like those cats kung fu fighting!) and THAT my friend is very difficult to train.
Time is Tight!
It can take a lifetime of training and experience to acquire expert timing when it comes to knowing what to do when nice doesn't work.
You may not want to wait a lifetime to learn how to protect yourself and your family better.
If you feel the urgency to learn how to protect yourself (and the ones you love) during these increasingly intense times, but don't have the time to do it, then I recommend you look into my free home study course - Six Day Defense. Click on this link: https://sixdaydefense.com/
