Watch more Boot Camp: Learn about Basic Training videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/498698-How-to-Increase-PushUps-by-400-Boot-Camp No doubt about it in basic training you're gonna gave to do a lot of push ups so you're gonna want to get your push up count as high as possible before you ever meet your drill sergeants. Let me show you the way to do that. You can increase your push up count considerably with this quick and easy routine. First thing you want to do is you want to do some jumping jacks to warm up your body, ok. Just a few. If you can do 25, 30 great. Jumping jacks are simple just like this, ok. Now once your body is warmed up this is the routine you'll really have to do to increase your push up count. The first thing you're gonna wanna do is do diamond push ups to exhaustion and when I mean to exhaustion I mean till you literally cannot push yourself off anymore, ok. And a diamond push up is when your hands are on the ground and it looks like this it's making a diamond. Alright, starting position your arm is straight gonna come down as far as possible gonna push yourself back up. Now again work to exhaustion. Then I want you to wait 30 seconds. Do a normal push up where your hands are normal length. Shoulder width apart, ok. Again you're going to exhaustion. And I'm gonna tell you the reason you're gonna go in this order in just a few minutes. Now we're gonna do wide grip push ups. So your hands are gonna be even farther apart then the normal grip of course. Nice and wide. So in between each of the diamond, the normal and the wide grip you're gonna be taking a 30 second break, gonna be working each to exhaustion. All of those three exercises is one set. You're gonna wanna do three of those every other day and if you're used to where you can do those three exercises without any problems do four sets then five sets then six sets however long you have to go until basic training. Now here's a tip when you're doing diamond push ups you're working your fast twitch muscle fibers in your triceps. When you're doing wide grip you're working your slow twitch muscle fibers in your chest. You're building up your chest your arms and your triceps all on one where you do each of the three variations of push ups. So if you could do twenty push ups before you even start this exercise you should easily be able to do 80 without stopping after you've done a few weeks of this exercise.

It literally means wrist twist. If you start with kakataetori. I want to step offline and away from the attack. Ten kon. Bring the hand in front of me. The free hand is going to rest right on top of my partners. Take a look. I've got my thumb right in between the ring and pinkie finger. My fingers inside the palm. As I step back and my partner turns to face me, I want to match my fingers right on top of my partners and point all of this at the floor as I move. Turn the hips. Fingers down to the floor. Make sure I've got the hand position. Ten Kon. Then I take one more step back and match fingers to fingers, when all of that is right at the floor. Down. We can also see this from ski. Same movement. Same movement. Yokomunushi will change things a little bit, but the basic technique, still there. Kotegaeshi. Wrist twist.

One of the most basic forms we can look at is from ai han mi, kate datori. Again, like in all of our other techniques, I don't want to fight directly with my partner's line of strength. So I'm going to follow my own. This is actually quite easy to move. So both hands up, away from his line of strength, and I'm going to slide forward. My back hand is going to meet the elbow and turn the hips. Urime, step in. Urime toward the side. Again, shoulder to the ground, and down for a pin. This isn't one of the more painful pins, but it works very well in terms of keeping your partner immobilized. Hands up and slide your body forward. Turn the hips, step in, and out. Again, in almost every technique in aikido we have one variation that goes to the front side and one variation that goes to the back side. The back side wura, hands come up. Instead of sliding to the front, I'm gong to take a step irini, to the back. Tenkan and continue to turn all the way down. Hands up, irini, tenkan, kaiten. So the imote variation. Irini, irini, ura, and ura. Ikkyo, number one.

There's a million different ways of doing a squat. I'm just going to show you the basic body weight squat, meaning you don't have any weight that you're working with except yourself. As you get stronger, you might want to progress - holding a medicine ball, holding a weight, or even holding your kid, anything that's going to add weight to your legs. This is predominantly a lower based exercise so you're going to focus on your quadriceps muscle groups, your gluts, your hamstrings, and your whole posterior chain. Basically, all of the muscles of the lower body are going to be working in this exercise. You want to start with your feet probably about shoulder width apart. If you're more comfortable a little wider or even externally rotating your fit a bit, just find place that's comfortable for your hips and make sure that your knees always track. A good rule of thumb is to think about your knees going right in between your big toe and your second toe. When you're doing a squat just watch out that your knees are not adducting and collapsing in or abducting and going out. You want to try to maintain the knee in a neutral position The wider you are too, the easier it's going be to balance. If you have stability issues, start wide. If you want to challenge the stability, then you bring your legs a little closer together and challenge your core muscles by challenging your balance. So, standard squat, shoulder width. Something comfortable. You're going to imagine like you're sitting back into a chair, lengthening your spine, reaching your hips back, bending your knees, and then exhale to come up. You're always going to inhale as you lower your body and you're always going to exhale as you lift any weight. In this case, the weight is your body. Exhale, pull the abs in, and come up to vertical tall spine. My tips for the squat, again, aside from the knees is what's going on with your spine. I'm going to show you from the side. If you're facing side you could look at yourself in a mirror and watch your positioning if that helps you when you're first learning. Same thing, sitting back like you're sitting back into a chair and watching that your spine is neutral. That means I'm not doing hyper extension, and I'm not doing excessive flection. I'm just trying to be right in between. You have natural curves to your spine, so you want to maintain those, so nothing excessive forwards or backwards of that. Then just do as many reps as you can do, maintaining good form, breathing in on the way down, exhale on the way up, targeting all the major muscle groups of the lower body.

What Military Branch Should You Join? | Boot Camp
 
01:50
Watch more Boot Camp: Learn about Basic Training videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/498622-What-Military-Branch-Should-You-Join-Boot-Camp Let's review some of the basics about each branch. First of all the marines, they are considered riflemen first. They have more marksmanship training than any other branch, and it has the most difficult basic training regimen. They have the incredible ability to convert dollar power into combat power, as they have no big budget like the Air Force, but they also have lots of military pride. Let's talk about the army, which has the second most intense basic training regimen. They have about three weeks of marksmanship, and recruits can pick from hundreds of different MOS's, which stands for military occupational specialty, and those MOS's translate well into civilian jobs. The navy: deep rooted with tradition, and if you like to travel this is the branch for you. Family men might want to consider the time they are going to spend away from their family though, given the fact that all of the time you are going to spend on ships. Also, if you are claustrophobic, it might not be a good idea to join the Navy, as you are going to be spending a lot of time in tight quarters. If you like large vessels and ships, the Navy is definitely the way to go. They have an awesome inventory of powerful ships. Let's talk about the Air Force. An impressive compilation of machinery and technology. If you are good with computers and technology this is definitely the branch that you should join. It also has the best housing of all the branches too. It's also the most difficult to get into as far as education requirements. The Coast Guard, Uncle Sam's little canoe club. If you like search and rescue missions, if you have an interest in maritime law, if you like environmental protection this is gonna be a good branch for you. You are going to need a high school diploma, and you are going to need to love to swim in order to join the coast guard. And that's it. Think long and hard about your decision because it is difficult to change once you have committed to a certain branch.

How to Play Russian Roulette w/ Liquor | Drinking Games
 
02:13
Watch more How to Play Drinking Games videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/499850-How-to-Play-Russian-Roulette-w-Liquor-Drinking-Games What's going on guys? This is the Russian Roulette drinking game, the liquor rules. What you're going to need is six shot glasses, cards one through six or pieces of paper labeled one through six, that's good enough. A dice and some water and some 151. You're going to fill up one shot glass with 151 all the way to the top. Make it nice and brimy it makes it a little bit more exciting. Then you're going to fill up the rest of the shot glasses with water. Now, there's an alternative to this. You can fill all the rest of the shot glasses up with liquor and do a double shot for the 151, that'll amp the stakes up. Or a little lighter than is you can fill the rest of the glasses up with beer. I prefer water because it's a little bit more of a surprise when you get the 151 vs beer or liquor. Now if you're really having fun, you can kind of switch it all up so nobody knows where the 151 is alright. And then you're going to lay out all the cards. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. You're going to put all the shot glasses, one on each card. You're going to roll the dice, sit a round in a circle and roll the dice. One person starts. They roll, whatever number they get they roll a 2 they shoot it. It's water. That's number. Next person goes, shoots it. Next person goes, shoots it. If they roll the same number that's already been rolled, so if they roll a 2, you just roll again until you get a number that hasn't been rolled. When a person finally gets the 151, just kidding. They shoot it, and they've lost the game. They're therefore eliminated and the rest of the players keep playing until no one's left. Alright? That's how you play Russian Roulette with liquor.

Okay? I have Chad here again. He's going to throw the double jab at me, which is a basic combination with the hands. And again, instead of throwing the, or parrying, alright, I want to slip the jab either outside or I can slip the jab inside. Okay? When I slip, again, I want to make sure I'm in a good base. I don't want to move my feet as I'm moving my head. So Chad throws a jab, I'll slip to the outside but I want to make sure I slip in on a 45. I don't want to slip out because it'll leave me off balance. So I want to slip in so that I'm in range to maybe counter, you know, for a boxing technique or maybe I can follow up with some knees, whatever that might be. If I slip to the inside, same concept. I want to make sure my head is in on a 45. I don't want to slip my head away because it will leave me off balance. Okay? So he'll throw the jab again, I'll slip to the inside. Okay? Make sure you keep the hands up as you slip. Don't get fancy and leave your hands down. He throws a jab, I'm going to keep the hands up so maybe I can counter. Okay? So now I'll throw the double jab, or I'll throw the jabs at Chad. He'll demo an MMA transition for slipping. He'll slip to the outside and he'll shoot in for that double leg. Okay? Maybe he'll slip to the inside and he'll come in for that clinch. Okay? So basic head movement or slipping for basic punches. Alright, so a basic counter, a Muay Thai counter, off of slipping with a jab, what I can do is use that left leg either to the head or to the body. So I'm going to slip my head out, get that left leg going to the body, obviously the head if he drops that right hand. Okay? So again, as I slip, I switch my feet and then I fire that left leg. Okay? If I throw the jab at Chad he'll come in for that double leg take down and he'll lift, okay? So there's two transitions, Muay Thai or MMA, for your jab.

This is a wonderful technique to take a look at, and see how the sword work that we do in Aikido translates directly to the movement that we use in open hand. We start with the. One of the basic things that I need to consider always is to get offline and away from the attack. I'm going to change my body 90 degrees, take the wrist, lift straight up in front of my face again like a sword, step through, turn and cut. Offline, lift, step through, and again like the sword, if I'm holding a sword in my partners hand here, you don't cut with the handle of the sword. You want to extend and cut with the tip of the sword, which we're going to think about as my partner's arm. So as you cut and extend out, it should bend your partner's back and take her balance. It should not be a throw where you just yank down and try and cut with the hand. Extend the elbow out and down. As this begin to progress and you make the cuts happen a little bit faster, you'll see how this changes the style a little bit. To the side, lift and cut. Shihonage, four directions throw.

Check out the official app http://apple.co/1DIxHwS Watch more MMA Fighting Techniques videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/501838-How-to-Use-Kicks-MMA-Fighting Okay, uh, we're here with Chad again, we're gonna, we're gonna go through some basic kicks that you can use, uh, for MMA, okay. I like to show a lot of kicks off with the lead side, which keeps you safe as far as, uh, take downs and, and counters. So again, righty against righty, you have your first basic kick, which is the inside leg kick, okay. The outside leg kick sometimes gets you in trouble, especially against a wrestler, he's gonna grab that leg and then he's gonna shoo it in, and take you down. Inside leg kick leaves me a little safer cause I can always come back to my stance and I'm not as off balance. So again you have the inside leg kick, okay, so that's your first basic kick. Another good kick that people um, a lot of people that I don't think they use enough, are the push kicks, okay, or the teeps, okay, using, using the push kicks to keep your opponent away. I'm gonna aim for the body, okay, I could also aim for the hip, and obviously I can aim toward the head, okay, with the push kicks. Alright, push kicks to be body, push kicks to the hips, or push kicks to the face. And, another lead leg kick that you can work is the switch kick to the body. You can switch kick to the body and attack the arm, or if that arm is up, and the rib cage is exposed you can attack the rib cage. Making sure that my head is always safe, keeping my head away. Um, last basic kick, again off of the lead side, is attacking the back leg. A lot of people like to attack the front leg with the outside or the inside leg kick people will sometime neglect that back leg. So what you're going to do to attack the back leg you gonna shuffle out a little, take a little step, and drive your shin toward that back leg. Again, I shuffle out, hands stay up high, and I use my shin to attack the thigh. But I always come back to my stance, ready for a take-down or ready for a counter. So again, I'll flow through them, inside leg kick, push kick, switch kick to the body, or step out and attack the leg. Okay, so those are your basic kicks, attacking head, body, or leg.

It is both mentally and physically enriching for your dog and it improves your skills as your dogs trainer. an easy trick that you can get started with would be paw, or some people refer to that as shake and what you want to make sure you do with tricks training is keep the training fun and positive for your dog. A good recommendation I'd like to give everyone is to resist the temptation to grab whenever training any behavior - you want them to think it through and in order for them to do that you need to break it down into small achievable steps so you're not necessarily looking for the end result you're looking for anything that's moving in the direction of that. So for paw I'm not going to grab at his feet because he might not like that he's also not using his brain if I'm doing the work for him so dogs if they often cannot get something with their mouth they use their feet so I'm going to put a treat right on Jack's nose and I'm going to have my hand ready when he tries to knock them out of my hand because he can't get them with his mouth and I'm just going to wait for that - I'm going to wait for any paw movement whatsoever - he moved his left paw just a little bit so that was a nice baby step - good I got a lot of movement out of the right one - I'm going to try again - good - I say the word good every time he does the behavior correctly and slowly it seems that I will be able to shake with his paw. The repetition of hearing the word good when his paw touches my paw so he makes that association. So now I think I'm ready to take the treats away - good - he ois still going to get one but I don't necessarily want to put them up front anymore and then we can work with a little duration so he can hold it there - oh beautiful - good and now that he's doing that readily if I'd like to put a verbal que on it I'm going to be able to say - Jack - paw - good - and now I've taught my dog to give paw.

This technique is called sankyo. Or number three in the series of techniques that O'Sensei established. And again, this whole series, one through five, is going to start with ikkyo. So if we look at shomenuchi, ikkyo, you meet and down. Again, I want to lift the hand so that I'm looking at the palm of my partner's hand. Reach underneath. I'm going to wrap my fingers right around the inside of the palm. And the fingers are another aspect that I have. I'm going to step back. And think about pointing all of this directly at your partner as they turn and cut. Again, this is very similar to the sword work that we do in aikido. Again, I don't want to point the fingers down and cut with the butt of the sword. I want to try to cut out with the tip and the elbow of the sword. And I'm going to continue to move around the front, irimi tenkan and down. The pin incorporated here, sankyo pin. Alright. So again, you start with ikkyo. Ikkyo, lift, take the hand and step back, cut, irimi tenkan, straight down on the shoulder and pin. So if we look at the ura variation. Again, I move to the back side first, lift, continue to move behind and down, spiraling movement towards ugay's back. Up for the pin, pull through. Ura, lift, hand position, tenkan, and back. Up for the pin, pull through. Couple other variations that we'll often see, straight down, straight up. Can also use sankyo to create openings for other techniques. Sankyo, number three.

We'll need both arms to execute juji nage and you'll see this in just a minute. Again, the first basic movement, tenkan, and out of the way. My partner trying to take the bottom hand. Dislodge it. Cross the arms. And as I step forward I'm pushing this lower hand against the elbow of the arm on top. As you step forward this will apply pressure to the arms. Tenkan. Remove that hand on top and move your body forward behind your extension. So I want to try to avoid allowing myself to collapse and then try and push, which doesn't help me a whole lot. Blend. Create the extension in the space. Move your body forward. You can also see this from ryote dori, again, if I have both hands occupied. Move through. I want to scoop off the top hand. Grab the bottom one. Cross the arms and forward again. Juji nage.

You're going to brush the floor and try to kick your butt. Just brush the floor and try to brush from your hips. Just like a walk, but it's just going to lift up, and you're going to see why now.

Let's take it from a back ocho. From the back ocho, you're going to over-rotate the back ocho. No longer are you going to lead it here, but you're going to lead it closer to you. Place the foot around her foot into a gancho. A: And, I brush back. I feel the lead just like a back step. Since his leg is in the way, that is what's creating my leg to lift in the air. B: We'll continue in the basic, to a cross, forward ocho, and we stop the trailing leg. Now, we lead a back step and this allows the gancho to happen. Notice that I am not in a straight leg, otherwise she can't do the gancho. I receive the gancho on a bent leg. This holds true for the gancho in the back ocho. Make a resolution, rosalida, from a forward step. Let's look at this from a different angle - we have an ocho, and we overturn one of the ochos, place it, come back to feet together. Go into the basic step, to the cross. Lead a forward step, but we stop it, as you probably would do in the cicada. So, think something like so. And we rewind into the gancho. She takes a forward step, I place my feet together. I lead her into another forward step, we can re-embrace, and continue the dance. [music]

Broadway: On the offense if he can shoot the shot, it's good. Swoop: Yeah, yeah. Broadway: But mostly he wants to finish in transition. Swoop: Finish. Broadway: He wants to be able to slash to the basket. Swoop: OK. Broadway: Defensively and offensively, he wants to help out on the backboards and get rebounds. Swoop: OK. OK.

This is the group of techniques that deals with how to take a knife away from a partner. So a tanto, being the smallest weapon that we use, also creates a fair amount of danger because your partner's going to be very close with that weapon. So a lot of the techniques involved in tanto dori tend to be a little more aggressive in order to completely diffuse the situation. So if we start with a tanto. Again, the very basic initial starting point for a lot of these attacks is going to be ski. So again we're looking at a punch or a stab directly to the stomach. Alright. And again, as in any Aikido technique, the most important thing for me is to get offline and away from the initial attack. We've seen korogashi before, or wrist-twist without the weapon, and this can be directly applied to tanto tori. The way that this would differ a little bit from open-hand techniques is because my partner has a knife. As the strike comes in I can use that weapon both to influence his movement, and I also need to be aware that I want to keep the weapon away from my partner. I'm not going to sit down to create the pin in this situation. I want to stay standing and remain with the weapon. Another variation we see a lot, ijiki mai, or another one of the elbow techniques and this is specifically designed to make sure that your partner's weapon hand is immobilized. So this is a point where you want to apply subtle and constant pressure. Try not to break the arm but you want to apply the pressure until your partner needs to drop the weapon and then you can get rid of your partner. Again, from the other side. Again, control the weapon, open the space up directly underneath against the elbow, take your wrist, and squeeze. Alright. You also see a fair amount of chokes, and immobilizations from this point. Lift. Before we went under the elbow, this time we're going to continue all the way around, and wrap the neck up. In order to remove the knife we're going to step back and drop on the closest knee, and apply pressure to the elbow against my knee that's up until your partner drops the knife. Alright. One other komichi mai technique that you'll see quite often. To the side, all the way around, and take the Gi from the other side, and separate. Again, down the closest knee, pressure on the elbow. So one more time. So tanto tori. These are just some of the most common techniques you'll see against a knife and how to remove it from your partner, or several others, which generally pertain to open-hand techniques. But these are some basic beginning points on tanto tori.

Koshi, part of the technique, literally refers to the lower back portion. Nage is throw. So, I'm throwing my partner over my hips or my lower back. A good way to start this out, again, with Gyako-Hanmi Katate Dori, wrist grab. I want to open up the space. Move my feet directly in front of my partner. And I want to try and keep a fairly thin stance. Try not going to get too wide for this. Lift and extend the hand that he's grabbing in the direction I want my partner to go. If I want him to go over my hips the hand should be extended over the hips, not over the shoulder. I don't want to pull him over my back. Open up the space. Move right in front of my partner. Extend the arm and look where I want my partner to go. And all the way over. Again, I don't want to feel like I'm having to get in here and lift my partner up. I'm simply giving my partner a pivot point for his hips to roll over. I shouldn't feel like I'm doing too much lifting. Up, extend, and over. So, Koshinage can happen as I extend the hand across my back. It can also happen as I push my partner's hand in front of their body, and I'll insert my hips here. In front, and also move. And then from various other attacks, Shomenuchi. Alright. That's Koshinage, hip throw.

I'm going to teach you guys two ways. So first way, we're going to get about this much belt. We're going to put it on the side. We're going to wrap around from your stomach to the back, and wrap it around. Now I want you to layer it on top like this, making it into a straight line, and we're going to roll it two times. So one more time, one, and two. Now, the overlayering belt we're going to actually wrap it around. We're going to go from the bottom inside and coming up this way. Now we're going to take out the first layer, or the bottom layer belt and out. Now you want to make sure both ends of the belt are even. We're going to tuck. Now if you notice it's a little bit uneven, you're going to kind of push and pull and get it right. I'm going to place the belt in the center and, again, give it a little tuck. The bottom we're going to turn, and the top is going to go to the top. And we're going to wrap around, one, and do the final tuck, two. And that's one way. The second way we're going to do this. We're going to actually hold the belt from the center. So we're going to place it on your stomach, one, and we're going to wrap it around and put it one layer under, one layer on top. And we're going to meet in the center, again, right here. Now, again, the overlayering belt we're going to wrap it around, going down to up, inside, and give it a little tuck. And again, measure from here. Now we're going to turn the bottom belt like this, and top goes to top. And we're going to wrap it around from the inside, and we're going to give it a final tuck. And this is how we wrap a Taekwondo belt.

Now I, personally, have a leg injury that I suffered from a car accident. So I was forced to become a guard fighter, because I could not establish the top position. So, I have a few tricks I'd like to show you. Let's talk about principals first. When you're in the guard, do not let your opponent posture. Do not let him up there. If he is postured, open your guard, open your guard, open your guard, push him off. Do not stay in the closed guard, with a postured opponent, okay? Absolutely, really important. For those Jiu Jitsu Gi fighters out there, all right? Time for you to stop grabbing here, and start pulling him in. You must break the posture. All right, now, after I break the posture, let's talk about tactics, okay? Let's talk about tactics. I don't want to see too much of this. It's good, but it's very easily countered, okay? Very easily countered. Now, there's only so much I can do with this hand. Eventually, the sweat and everything, he's gonna come up and he starts hitting me with that elbow, right? He postures up completely, and now I'm back where I started, okay? So, let's talk about how to hold the guard. Boom, here, okay? First position, shift out, get your head underneath his armpit. Underneath his armpit. Bring your knee as close to your elbow as you can. Here, the Snake. Snake. Snake your hand in. Punch me, Chad. Very hard to punch. He punches in. It becomes a good attack for me to launch arm vice, okay? That's the first control position, the Snake. The second control position, okay? The Damn Good Guard. Obviously, because it's good, okay? Hold your wizard here. That's very important. If your hand is down here, he's gonna pull his arm out, okay? So, I've got to bring my hand up and grab my pec, or even higher. Grab my pec and, also, bring your knee up. Right. Now, he starts posturing. The more he postures, the more I can let this knee in and start looking for my triangle. Looking for this position, here, okay? Be careful not to let this hand fall down. He's gonna get it out, okay? So, we have the Snake. The Damn Good Guard. Now, we have another one. The Rubber Guard, Eddie Bravo's system, here, excellent system, Rubber Guard, look it up, beautiful system. Now, we have another system, the Lister. Hand under here, underneath your knee. It's like Damn Good Guard, but this comes here. Grab his shoulder, cross your feet, clap your hands, clap your hands, put your elbow in his face. This hand should not go to you, it should go away from you. Punch me in the face, Chad, posture up. Okay, I'm using this leverage. If he does get posture, if he does get posture, sweep him over. Now, the last control, my personal favorite, the Rat Guard. Watch that again, hand on the head. Boom. Here. Punch me as hard as you can, Chad. I'm gonna let him punch me. Here go. Okay, now, watch how I play it. A few ways to control your opponent, with his posture controlled in the guard.

Push-ups are great because you don't need any equipment. You can do them anywhere. There's a couple of different variations of doing a push-up, and I'm going to give you some key tips to look out for so you can do them most efficiently, most effectively. Let's come on down. You can do a modified push-up which would be on the knees. I've heard some people call these girl push-ups. There's really no such thing as a girl push-up because guys can do these too. It just depends on whether you need to modify the push-up or not. They are just variations of each other. I'm going to start with the modified push-up. Your hands are probably going to be about shoulder width apart. Just find something comfortable. The biggest mistakes people make here are to internally rotate the hands and potentially put a lot of strain on the shoulder. You want to just get that shoulder into a nice neutral position. You want to watch out that your butt is not back here. It's not wrong to do a push-up here. This is just a very modified version. You're taking away a lot of the weight from the upper body. The purpose is to bring the weight into the upper body. That's what you're working against to make you stronger. You're going to inhale as you go down, just bending at the elbow, and then exhale like you're blowing the floor away. Inhale to come down, exhale like you're blowing the floor away. If you wanted to make it harder, you would take it off of the knees. Same thing, bending the elbows, exhale, drawing the abdominals in, and coming up. The wider your legs are here the easier it's going to be to balance. If you want to challenge the stability, you could move the legs in. Starting with the knees, and maybe even doing a one knee push up. That would be kind of intermediate, something between the modified and the full push-up if you're not ready to go immediately from one to the other. When you're in the push-up, let's start with the head, making sure that your head is not dropping. Sometimes we think we're going further down or not, just our head is. Keeping your head in line so the cervical spine doesn't take any stress, and then the rest of your back too. You want to make sure you're not leading with your hips and breaking. This means that you're not really properly engaging your core. Engage your core. Draw the belly muscles in. Keep your head in line. Inhale to take it down, exhale to come up. There's your push-up, targeting all the major muscle groups of the upper body, mostly the pecks, the chest muscles, the anterior delts, the front of your shoulder, and as you go through elbow flexion and extension, you're working your triceps.

Nikio, comes from knee, or the number two in Japanese language. So, this is the second basic technique that our sensei established for us. If we start with Giacahame Katadatori, one of the easiest ways to get here, or to Nichio, rather, I'm going to move offline, so tension movement. And I want to make sure that my partner has something to run into, so I don't pull this hand into me. Let him run into this had, I'm going to trail all the way down his arm to take the back of the hand, grab the wrist as I lift it up and place it on my shoulder and just compress as I bow towards my partner. This is probably one of the more painful things we do in ichido so it's good to stay relaxed and move with the pin. Take the elbow, turn it over and place the shoulder on the floor. Get down in position for the pin that accompanies this, Nichio. Tension movement, down to find the hand, lift up, grab the wrist, over to the shoulder and compress. Shoulder over on the ground, make the transition for the pin. You can find this from lots of different positions, again stramanuchi ...ski...morotetori...tataminuch. Ok, Nichio, number two.

How to Spot Sexual Attraction in Eyes | Body Language
 
03:34
Watch more How to Read Body Language videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/501674-How-to-Spot-Sexual-Attraction-in-Eyes-Body-Language Out of all the different non-verbal behaviors, I think that spotting attraction is without a doubt the easiest. We are very emotional creatures and when we're attracted to somebody, it's very, very difficult to hide. People think they're hiding it, but things always slip. One of the ways they slip are essentially the eyes. There are a lot of different ways you can use the eyes to determine whether or not someone's attracted to you. The first thing is essentially eye contact. For the most part, usually we make eye contact with people that we're interested in or people that we're attracted to. Right? But this is not entirely true. Some people are shy or anxious and they're not going to make eye contact. So what you're looking for essentially is a deviation in eye contact. So one of the ways you can use eye contact and there's a little trick that's very, very reliable. So what you're going to do is if you look at somebody in a bar or restaurant or on the street and they break eye contact vertically, so they look down. So you make eye contact with them and they break eye contact vertically and then within 20-30 seconds they reestablish eye contact, approach them. They like you. It's a very, very reliable thing. Essentially what they're doing. You stare at them. They're submitting to you and then they take a little second glance to see who you are. It's very, very, very reliable. The opposite of that would be if you look at somebody and they look at you and they immediately go and break eye contact. Nope, not interested. But what is reliable is they break eye contact and they come back. Break eye contact and then come back. Break eye contact and then come back. It's very interesting. And don't let it wait. If you see that, go right away because the more and more you wait. The more and more eye contact becomes very, very awkward. One of the things that I do in one of my classes is I have people stare each other in the eyes for three minutes without saying anything. They just stare each other in the eyes like this. Try that. Go out and try to stare somebody in the eyes for even 90 seconds. I guarantee you can't do it. It's awkward. It's so awkward because humans are not really at a level intimacy. When you stare somebody in the eyes is so awkward when you're doing it with a stranger. Studies will show that if you stare somebody in the eyes for 90 seconds to three minutes, all of a sudden you're going to like that person a lot better than everybody else in the room because you kind of shared this emotional connection. So eye contact is important in that respect. The second thing you can look for essentially is blink rate. Now, this is really cool. So blink rate correlate with emotional excitement. When we are emotionally excited, our blink rates tend to increase. Right? Average blink rates tend to be below 20 blinks per minute. For most people it really depends on where you are, but it's really hard to nail down what the average blink rate is. But in my experience, it seems to be around 10 blinks per minute. Right? So you see, whenever you see a sudden spike or a bunch of sudden spikes in somebody's blink rate in can be an indication of attraction. In my dating studies you see blink rates through the roof because the person across the table from you has an emotional response. You're attracted to them. The third way of kind of using the eyes to determine attraction is dilation. It's very interesting. Our eyes dilate when we're attracted to something. Right? Go out and find a Maxim magazine or a Playboy magazine or any cover that's predominately men focusing. Every single woman will have her eyes dilated. You never, ever see them constricted. The reason why is because men perceive women with dilated eyes more attractive than women with more constricted eyes. To the point of back in the day prostitutes used to put a specific toxin in their eyes to make them dilate.

This isn't one of the most basic techniques that you'll see, but you will come across it in general training. Again, the Aiki comes from the basic name of aikido which means to blend your energy. The otoshi part of the technique is a drop. So, this is a blending drop. So, if we start with yoko hanmi katatori. One of the most basic ways for us to get into position for Aiki Otoshi is to remove my partner's hand and I'm also going to toss his up in the air as I slide underneath. And I want to be able to have my partner kind of sandwiched between my arm and my knees that's back behind my partner's legs. Reach down and I'm going to clamp my knees together and lift up and away. This is a basic form of Aiki Otoshi, a blending drop. Move to the side, remove my partner's hand as I go underneath. Take the knees and lift up and away. You shouldn't feel yourself using too much effort or force to lift the knees. If you find yourself getting here and trying to lift your partner straight up, you're going to run into a lot of weight. So, in order to get that to work smoothly, again, collapse the knees together and I want to lift the knees up and away. Not directly toward me. Together. For a more dynamic sense of Aiki Otoshi or this movement, it becomes more of a projection. So, I'm going to use my center to knock his away. It's almost like you are playing billiards or croquet where one ball hits another one and makes it move. Away. Arm comes up and moves straight through your partner. Also from yokomenuchi, another attack. And that was Aiki Otoshi, the blending drop.

So we're going to go one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. After you do that a couple of times warming up, now you go down for the stretch. You try to grab your toes and try to keep your upper body low as you can and maybe forward again 10 to 30 seconds and up. If you guys have a little trouble doing this exercise, again, you can start out grabbing the ankles or you can tuck your knees in, grab your toes and slowly work down this way and hold. OK? It takes time. Now the other stretch we are going to do is we are going to put one leg in and one leg out. Keep your upper body straight and try to stretch down. Try to put your head to your knees and go as low as you can. Again, hold about 10 to 30 seconds, come up and switch to the other side and down and up. The next stretch we are going to do is called the butterfly stretch. We are going to put our knees together. One. Now make sure you put your feet all the way in like this. I like to grab my toes and bounce my knees like a butterfly. So do this again maybe 10 to 30 times, bounce, warming up. Now it's time to go down. We're going to keep our backs straight and exhale and breathe down, going down, breathing out. Now up. Now we're going to do this thing called a split stretch. Now we're going to open our legs as wide as you can. Now, again, I like to maybe open a little wider by putting my hands forward and hands back and then kind of push my hip forward, trying to get as much as you can. Now the first thing we're going to do is stretch down the middle. So we're going to go down, one. Now, again, you're trying to go as low as you can, trying to keep your stomach to the ground. Again, hold about 10 to 30 seconds. Up. Go to the side. Use your hands and try to grab your toes. Up. Go to the other side. And these are some ground stretches. I encourage you guys to stretch before, definitely before class, and also when your body is really warmed up, it's great to stretch after class also.

Check out the official app http://apple.co/1MXo0IZ Watch more How to Do Shaolin Kung Fu videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/507145-5-Basic-Staff-Techniques-Shaolin-Kung-Fu Hi, I'm Steve Romain. Welcome to my video on shaolin staff basics. Today I'll be demonstrating some of the fundamental techniques in order to help you understand how to use your staff a little better. We'll start with overhead swings. To begin with, we'll start from our forwards stance. And this is a great way to train your stance and your weapon all at the same time. From here, you're going to bring your staff over your shoulder. Place your left hand on top of your right. You're going to begin by swinging the staff out to the side, bringing it behind you. As you bring it behind you, you want to tilt so that the staff should continue to flow past you, bringing it around so that it tucks underneath the arm, pivoting into your forwards stance, and then thrusting the palm out. One more time, one, two, three, four, five. And then from, here, you just want to take the staff out, bring it around, and swing it like a baseball stick. And then it just starts over again. So, now I'll demonstrate full speed. The next basic technique is what we call forward figure 8. From here, you're going to have your right hand firmly on the stick. Left hand is going to grasp with two fingers, and you use your thumb to guide it. As you bring your stick forward, bring it from side to side. You want the stick to travel as close to your body as possible. To reverse figure 8, for this one, you're going to have your right hand on the stick, and then place your left hand underneath. You're going to start by swinging behind you, and then bringing it up. Now, it's really important to keep your elbows high. Because the ceiling here isn't that high, I'm going to go a little bit lower. You want to use your body with the stick. Now we're going to take a look at the uppercut and the chop. Again, we're going to bring the stick over the head, on to the shoulders. We're going to do a change step, and release the staff at a 45 degree angle. Let it rest on your left shoulder. Bring it down, letting it snap underneath your arm. You can visualize coming up underneath somebody's head, and then striking back down on the back of their head. Again, up, and then, down. Full speed. And you'll practice these techniques with a lot of repetition, so you can get really good at them.

Watch more How to Swing Dance videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/507278-How-to-Do-the-Charleston-Step-Swing-Dance The Charleston step -- One of the key elements to understanding swing. Most of us think of Charleston as this little back and forth, kind of underneath us, Charleston step. It's similar to that for swing dancing, but it gets a little bit more athletic. We still do want to think that what's going to happen is, I'm going to have one foot go back. We'll do it with our left, and then we'll do it with our right. Our left goes back, back, and then our right goes forward, forward and then back, back. So that goes back, forward, forward, back, back, forward, forward, back. You could start that with your right foot back as well. So that goes back, forward, forward, back, back, forward, forward, back. That's kind of a basic Charleston step. We're going to show you how we do it in swing dancing. In swing dancing, the Charleston has a little bit more of a kick and athleticism to it. What you are going to do here is to go back, back, like a rock step. You go back. You are going to kick forward, then step. Kick forward, and, as you kick forward, kind of pull that knee up and reach it back to take the step. Then it starts over: back, kick, up, and down; back, kick, up, and down. The timing for that is: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight; one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. With your right foot: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight; one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight; one, two. Now let's try the Charleston step to music, [music playing] starting with your left foot. Now let's start with the right.

To begin with kung fu is based on nature. And one of the things that we find in nature are animals. And animals can determine the attitude behind what we are doing, the spirit behind the kung fu that we are practicing. So the five animals, they are; the tiger, dragon, leopard, snake and crane. Now there are tons of other animals but these are the five basic animals. So lets take a look at some of the animal movements. First, we have the tiger claw. The tiger claw incorporates the use of all five fingers as well as the palm. When using the five fingers, each finger would find a point. I can not only grab, but I can also rake. The dragon. The dragon uses a claw too. Its more like a talon though. Notice how the fingers are spread out. Here I can strike. I can strike. I can rake. I can pull. That's the dragon. Next, we have the leopard. The leopard paw is a flat fist. Notice how the fingers are nice and tight. Hand is flat. You can use this area to strike. Boom. Or we could strike, this way. If you were punching I can block and then, strike. Okay. The leopard is known for its strength and its power as it strikes. Now we'll look at the snake. Alright. When we are working the snake, we are working quick hand movements. Okay. Both inside, you can work outside as well. We can block down and then go up. Snake is known for its flexibility. The crane. All the fingertips come together. Hooking at the wrist. I can block, with the wrist. I can strike, boom, with the wrist. I can poke with the fingertips to soft areas. These, are the five animals of shaolin.

A volley kick is a very advanced technique, it's a very advanced technique, so beginners shouldn't try this yet. If you have at least two years of training, maybe you can give this a try. I'm going to demonstrate, and I'm going to first explain to you as easy as possible. I'm going to stay in a fighting stance. First, a volley kick is like a back turn, but this time with an angle, so like this. One. I'm going to throw my back leg up in the air, two. One more time. One, two. It's almost like a roundhouse kick, but you have to kick and try to land with the same leg, something like that. One more time. One, two, three, and these are the drills that you guys can go in the beginning. I like to now to a step four. I like to do my volley kick with my left leg, so I'm going to bring my left leg behind. I'm going to step forward for the momentum, one, one more time. Don't turn your shoulders, make sure. One, turn, bring the leg up, and throw that kick like this. Now it's a little harder if you go slowly. It's actually a lot more easier if you go fast. I'm going to actually demonstrate it now with my partner over here. He's going to be holding the target. Again, beginners, you don't have to go this high, okay? You can hold it like here. This is the best distance for me. I like to stand up, again, left leg back fighting stance, because I'm going to be kicking with my left leg because I'm going to be stepping forward. Now I'm going to step forward and do the volley kick. I'm going to demonstrate, and have a good landing. One more time. I'm in my fighting stance, step forward, and that's how you do a volley kick.

"Hiji" is elbow and "Waza" is technique. So these are several techniques that specifically lock, or were initially intended to break an elbow. We want to be careful with that because we don't want to injure anybody in our training. But it's always good to know where these techniques came from. So if we start with the basic Gyaku Hanmi grab, again, I'm going to move to the side. Lift, as if I was going to start Nikkyo. Roll the arm all the way over and under. So I should have his elbow tightly clamped underneath my arm. His arm should be higher and directly above his shoulder. As soon as I drop this, my partner can stand up. This is not the effect I want to have. So in terms of leverage, I want to use that elbow to lift. Make sure that my weight is above my partner's shoulder, and I'm going to step back and create an opening that I'm going to take that elbow with me. Partner needs to follow and move with. Once I get down, again, the knee closest to my partner is down, I want to have a good solid connection with my partner's elbow and I'm just going to turn my body to face my partner. That one is Hiji Kime. Another form of Hiji Waza we can use, again, to attack the elbow specifically, I need to remove my partner's hand, Kaiten, and open the space up. I want to use the elbow and I don't want to do it if we're all cramped up on top. Move in, open the space. I'm going to reach directly underneath the elbow, so it's barred against my arm. Take my own forearm, and as you curl both fingers in, that puts a fair amount of pressure in the opposite direction of the elbow. By the time you feel it beginning to hurt, it's generally at the point where it's ready to break. So, please be careful. Attention away, underneath the arm and take your own wrist. Both hands, squeeze. Alright. One more technique that we can use considered Hiji Waza, or Hiji Nage, is a throw. Step to the side and I want to reach right underneath my partner's elbow. You use that leverage to let him go. We'll stand off the line of attack so if he's got somewhere to go, drop and take the elbow and turn. Hiji Waza, elbow techniques.

So today we're going to go over a dumbbell concentration throw. This is a very old school exercise. You see most guys doing this in their workouts during their arm workouts. It's a very simple exercise but it's very easy to get wrong. Now, with this again, your focus here is to work that bicep through its full range of motion. Really get some blood into it. Good concentrated curls. Now, you're going to choose a weight that you're very comfortable with that you don't have to cheat the exercise with so you don't have to rock your body or anything. You can stay real firm and real concentrated. That's why it's called a concentration curl. With this exercise, you're going to keep your wrists up to the sky, palms to the sky, supinated the whole time. Now, as you come up, you see a lot of guys who don't know what to do with their wrist. As a rule, when you come up, if you try to squeeze so that your pinkies rotate up, it'll actually peak out the bicep a little more. So guys always talk about they want that peak in their bicep. Well what you do is you rotate so that your pinky goes up and thumb goes down. That really contracts that muscle to its fullest. So during concentration throw, that's exactly what you want to try to do. Notice I'm rotating the dumbbell so the pinky comes up. Now, it's also important to breathe during this exercise. Any time you work against gravity is when you want to breathe out. So I'm bringing it up, working against gravity, breathe out. Really squeeze that muscle. Concentrate that muscle. Release, come down slow. Never ever do you want to jerk up and drop it. It's not going to do anything for that muscle. It's not going to do anything for your results. The best results are when you're concentrated. Up, squeeze, down, release. Squeeze, down, release. Now, if size is your goal, then you want to shoot for ten to 15 reps, maybe eight. But 12 is really the standard. So after you perform 12 with one arm, obviously you want to switch to the other. You're going to support your elbow with your leg here. You never want to lock out your elbow completely because that'll do damage to that joint. So you're always going to keep a slight bend in your elbow. Same thing as the other arm. Come up, squeeze, try to rotate your pinky a little tiny bit up. Really peak out your bicep. Come back down. Controlled. Breathe out, squeeze, inhale. And that's your concentration throw.

Now, we're going to try forward ochos. Forward ochos, the transitions are in the middle, are in the waiting time.

But what is Sacada? Sacada is a displacement of the foot so in other words i take her place. Sacad literally means to take out. Now you take her with embrase and now we are going to go all the way accross. I know that my right leg is free, so as i leed i am gonna place my foot right next to her so we are gonna sacada that foot. Now we are gonna Sacada the side foot and finally we are gonna sacada her front foot. After this we are gonna conclude with the forward step and then we can walk. So the followers in the sacada we are just doing a great wine or a heto. We are gonna go forward while the leader displaces while we turn into a three leg then you go side here you are gonna follow your partners movement, so that he can displace your feet. Make sure that your connection stays strong and are always following your partners chest as you go around. To lead a Sacada its only that i am taking her place so i don't necessarily have to push her out with my foot. Its a misconception to do that. What we do id once i place my foot keep on leading so that we can move she can move out of my way its almost like opening the door for a sec from here then we do that each time in the take out the forward step it feels like there is going to be some contact but you are not looking for that contact. So in a way this is a way to if you work. so the lead the follower will follow the lead because the leader is just opening his chest so that will create the circular motion to keep him going around him. Wright you don't have to lead each one individually just give general lead and you know through practice that's what the step to you know that is in this case front side and back. So you are sacada in the training class.

So if we start from a basic yaku hami kate tettori position, again, hand grab. I'm going to make a movement off line. As I move off line, I'm going to take his elbow and I'm literally going to put it on the floor, towards what's considered my partner's back corner. Hence the name. So if we're looking at my partner's basic stance and balance, put the hand here. He's not terribly off-balance. But I want to aim for the missing leg of the third tripod, so to speak. So I want to put the elbow down and behind my partner. So it's a hand grab, move off line, step forward as I put his hand on the floor. And off line. You're leaning forward. You can also start the movement again with a basic Kino hanko movement. Have your partner come all the way around and then down. From other attacks, let's show minuchi. Ski. Sumi otoshi. Corner drop.

It's just a rep range and a rep speed. The idea of 21s is to really tax out that muscle, get full blood into it and really pump it up, you know the pump that everyone talks about. To perform a 21, first you perform 7 reps from the lower part to mid way, so it's 7 there, and after that you perform 7 reps from the top of your exercise to mid way. Once you're done with those 7, you do a full 7 up and down. All controlled, not swinging, not cheating the exercise. So with this, I'm going to use an easy bar. The wider you hold it the more the inside of the bicep you're going to work, the closer you hold it the more outside of your bicep you're going to work. So, I'm going to hold it right in the middle, get a nice even workout for my biceps. Now again, a lot of guys like to use this at the end of their workout just to pump their biceps, I love it, it's a personal favorite exercise of mine. You're going to perform this exercise, feet always a good base, knees not locked out, knees loose as you're performing this. As you are performing this, you're going to come up halfway and down, halfway and down, never lock out your elbows completely, you could do damage to your joint there, so keep that safe, so 7 reps here, after you perform those 7 come to the top. Now you're not going to be throwing it up, and keep your elbows in place, if you bring your elbows out here you're not really going to work your biceps like you want to. So again, elbows are going to stay right by your side. Come up to the top and come back half way, this is where it gets hard, so now you should be burning, we're going to perform 7 right here all controlled, you're not swinging it back and forth, all controlled. Get a good squeeze on the bicep, make sure you're breathing through the whole set. Now once you've finished that 7 you perform the last seven which is full range, just like the standard bar bell curl, come all the way up, squeeze, control the negative, all the way up, squeeze, control the negative, work against gravity, breathe out, control, breathe in, work against gravity, breathe out, squeeze that bicep and you'll feel so much blood rushing to that bicep. and afterwards the results are pretty good. And that's 21s.

I'm Sifu Romane and this is Shaolin fighting tips. The first tip that I can give you on fighting is whoever controls the distance controls the fight. This is really important to understand. Basic, basic concept. If he's a strong puncher, I can use my foot to keep him away from me. If he's a strong kicker, I obviously need to come inside where I can use my hand skills. If he's a strong puncher, the other thing I can do is come inside the grappling. That will also eliminate his punches, as well. Another fight tip that we use for Kung Fu in particular is using our contact reflexes. This is important because this range is what we call immobilization range, and it's one of the things that makes Kung Fu unique. So as soon as we make contact, we know exactly where he is. You don't even necessarily see him to know what to do. The other thing is, if I come inside here, I can automatically pin his arms against his body, and that's what we mean by using your contact reflexes. I'm Sifu Romane, and these are some Shaolin fighting tips.

The most important thing is the step one is on the head of the musical phrase and it's on the back. So, let's start one on the back. Step back one, take a small little step forward on two, and then bring together on three. And we're going to repeat the same thing on the left side, so left leg back. One, and together, right leg back. One, and together, left leg back. One and together, and right leg back. One, and together. So, you can keep your hands to your hips just so confused with the coordination with the arms yet. But just be really thinking of transferring the weight into that front foot from the back to the front and then bring it together. And to the back, and together. And back, and together. And back. And back, and back, and move a little bit faster. And... One very important detail. Men, you should do the samba with the foot right on the floor. Women are always up on the balls of their foot. So, guys, flat shoes, girls, high heels. Let's do it again. To the back. One two three, one two three, one two three, and a little bit faster. And... and slide together, slide together, slide together. Basic samba foot work.

First, let's start from the beginning. We're going to be doing a chariot. A chariot means feet together and hands together like this. Now we're going to practice choonbi. Choonbi means 'ready'. So we're going to go one, open your left leg, shoulders apart, two, and three. One more time. One, two, three and we're going to kiyap, this way. Now we're going to go to our horse stance drill. I like to put my hands X, spread your legs a little more apart, bend your knees, keep your back straight, head up, fist on side. Now we're going to start with the left punch. I'm going to show you a mirror image, so I am going to punch with my right hand, but to you, it will be your left hand. So I'm going to punch with the left hand now. Now we could do two punch. I like to do a last one kiyap, so it's going to go like this. Three punches, and the last one kiyap. Now every school has a different basic horse stance form. I'd like to show you mine. So I'm going to put my arms up and we're going to first do a down block technique. One. Now I like to put my arms up to the other side, two. The next technique is called an inside block. Three, four. Now I'm going to show you a face block. Five, six. Now, seven, we're going to punch, eight, we're going to punch, and only eight steps. One more time, a little faster. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Paro, Paro means 'come back'. Then, chariot. And kyong ne means 'bow'. Kyong ne. And that's how we do our basic horse stance drill technique in Taekwondo.

And today I'm going to show you how to do a dumbbell row on the bench. Alright? Obviously that's going to be a one arm dumbbell row and it's going to target our lats, our rear delts, our rhomboids, our biceps, our forearms, so tons of muscles in this. And this is what I would call a prime exercise. So these are one of the exercises that if you're really looking to add some strength or size to your lats, these are going to be one of the ones that you're going to definitely go to. Basically you're able to lift the most amount of weight and you're going to be in a very stable position. Okay? So this is what it's going to look like. Come along. We're going to get one knee on the bench, other leg out to the side. The reason that I like to do that is I like to put your abdominals over the floor. A lot of people do it differently where they are staggering their leg this way and you're going to put more tension on your lower back. So my version is going to be a lot safer. It may be harder to do but a lot safer and more effective. Okay? Leg out to the side, stomach over the floor and we're going to grab a hold of this dumbbell. Now, the first thing you want to think about when you grab the dumbbell is let's use your hand as a hook. Instead of thinking of squeezing that dumbbell and putting everything into your bicep and your forearm, we're going to use it as a hook and think of lifting our elbow back. Alright? So that's a very important key to really isolate that lat muscle. We're going to grab a hold, slowly lift, one. Allow yourself to extend down, back again, allow yourself to go step down. Now, this is the dumbbell row. The one mistake a lot of people make is using their legs. Okay? Now, if you're using your legs then what you're effectively doing is making that weight lighter. So majority of the time when you see people lifting a weight that's too heavy for them, they're using their legs. So if you see this on your extension, up, that weight is too heavy for you, okay? We need to lock those legs in, your back's going to be stable, and you're going to allow your shoulder to drop maybe that is the only thing that'll happen. Contract and pull but the legs don't move. Alright guys? So remember, use the hands as a hook. It's going to be so effective. This is an excellent exercise to really target those back muscles. This is going to be one of the top three that I do. I love dumbbell rows, I do them all the time and I think you should too.

You are going to do this type of figure which is the Lapiz once as you lead her side and forward. Once you stop her there you cross her around and you can continue dancing. Let us try it from a different perspective. We have side, forward, Lapiz, lead her around Parada, she crosses over and then the step is finished. Let us take a look at it with our partner. Female: So for the follower we are just going to do the Media Luna and follow our partners. Male: Side, forward. Start the Lapiz as you lead around, and Parada your leg, like so. Like a regular Parada you lead her to go across as you transfer your weight. Let us take another look. Side, forward, around to a Parada, forward step, transfer your weight. Let us take it from a side step; and, side, forward, Lapiz as she does maybe a Luna into a Parada, she crosses over, you change her weight. The coordination happens like so; you begin forward, side, she goes side, you bring your feet together to give space for the forward step and then you Parada, foot like so. Female: And I will acknowledge his foot in a sandwich. Male: She crosses over, there we go. [Music plays]

First, you're going to want a plane and a bus ticket. You're going to want several copies of your orders. You're also going to want form 1199, which is your direct deposit form. You're also going to want meal tickets and MEPS, which is your military entrance processing station; all those documents. You're going to want a copy of your birth certificate - not the original. You're also going to want 6 pair of underwear, white only, no crazy colors. You're going to want comfortable running shoes. Two locks, make sure they're combination - no padlocks, you're not going to want to carry keys around with you. Eyeglass band, but only if you wear eyeglasses of course. You're also going to want to pack 6 pair of calf-length white socks. A black marker, Sharpie medium point works best. Toiletries and a small black bag to hold all your toiletries in. Toothbrush with a case. Shaving cream. Disposable razors - not your electric razors, you can't use electric razors at basic training. Two washcloths and a towel. Don't forget that deodorant, please don't forget that deodorant. Shower shoes, all black again, no colors and no logos on those shower shoes. Shampoo and conditioner - one bottle to save space. Soap with case, please don't forget that soap. For women, you're going to want your undergarments; cotton panties and bras. And don't forget, one full slip in case you're ever in a military suit, which you will be. Flesh-tone nylon pantyhose. And quarter inch or less in diameter earrings - they can be gold, silver, pearl, or spherical diamond; which can also be worn with what they call your Class A military suit. Let's go over some miscellaneous items as well. You're going to want a long-distance calling card to call home, because you won't have access to a cell phone most likely. Small box of laundry detergent in a zip lock bag. Stamps, which will be your best friend at basic training, they're like currency. Insect repellent. Cough drops. Small notebook to take notes of course - when your drill sergeant yells at you, you want to write that down so you don't make the same mistake again. And that's pretty much your entire list. I wouldn't recommend bringing anything else because it's probably going to get confiscated for contraband.

Planeos and Calesitas tend to get confusing. So the difference with a Planeo is that your partner will actually lower your level. Diego Blanco: By lowering his. Ana: By lowering his and that will create your leg to create a longer stride. But you will still maintain all your weight on one access as he takes you around. So you will maintain this low figure until he changes his level, bringing your feet together. Diego: When we talk about changes of level we're pretty much talking about following the bend of the knees. If I bend my knees she bends her knees. It is pretty simple. Calecita on the other hand does not have that, as you have seen before. It is a straight figure. Okay? Let's take this Planeo from the forward ochos. Side, all the way to the cross, into a forward ocho. When she comes into that forward ocho I'm going to step around her and start to walk back. Make sure you don't vary the size of the step as much as possible. And just bring your feet together once you step with the right. And for me you can continue dancing. So the way the leading works for a Planeo is through your bend of knee. So when I bend my knees she is going to bend her knee. Now, I'm going to step around and maintain that bend of knee as I go down, around. For instance, if I do this, down and come back up, she's going to be in a Calesita. So her leg, her trailing leg will not be long and therefore it will not be a Planeo.

It requires the hammer lock, and to be able to change places when we're not facing each other. Give her the hammer lock step. This is where it gets complicated. First of all, I need to go under her right hand. I step forward. Now, from here we need to rearrange. I need to change places with her. In order to do that, I need to bring this hand down, and this one up. I have to do it at the same time, and slowly, so that I won't hurt my partner. Then, I can get myself out. Again, we find each other in a hammer lock position, and turn her out. Raise my hand, turn her around to hammer lock, walking under her arm, change hands from up to down, get myself out, and turn her. A little faster. You have walk, under, out. Let's try it with some music. Take all the time you need to do this step. And that's our Colocho step.

So, we're are going to deal with how to take the Jo away from the partner, and then also at one point in time during jo tori, when I am holding the jo and my partner is trying to grab it from me. If we start with the jo, we'll generally begin with my partner holding the jo and performing a series of attacks, again which are similarly enough to the open hands techniques. We can see the same principles apply. So one of the first that we will see is ski. So this is just like open hand technique if he was going to punch to the leading side, this is like ski. So in any Aikido technique the most important thing is to get off line and away from the strike. The first thing I need to do is be aware of how I am moving my body away from the strike. I want to make contact with the weapon or the hand, take control and bring it my side. Lift, and project. Just as in with the other weapons, I always want to end up holding the weapon at the end of the technique. So his first technique is considered Kokyunage. I always end up with the Jo. Kai ten. Hold the weapon to my side and take control, lift, and separate. I can also move to the imoti side in front. Lift, take the jo from underneath, and project. Again, I end up with the weapon. Again, move to the imoti side, and project. I can also receive and project back where he came from. Interested in crossing my partners arms, here, and project forward again. Now, if we were to take a look at jo tori in terms of when I am holding the weapon, my partner's coming to get it, so either grab with one or both hands, and this is a great way to demonstrate how not to fight with your partners strength. He is grabbing into the jo, I don't want to try to pull or move my partner, I want to leave that contact point where it is, move around it, and project out and away, and also avoid it altogether. Take the feet, and also create some wrist locks and pins and immobilizations. So jo tori consist of me holding the weapon, or in an instance where my partner is holding the weapon and attacking. So jo tori.

Male: Vocara means to spill, so we're going to get our partners to spill their weight on us. Generally you can do this in a big step, but we recommend that it's done in a small amount. So let's start with the side step, normally we step in the side step like so, but for the vocara we're going to step away from our partners so that they can spill their weight on us like so. A small step, if you take a little bigger step it's too much for the ladies, their back is going to kill them, we don't want that, it kills the chemistry. So just a sleight step back, to get that initiation, as you get that you're going to give a circular feeling to cross as you step. The lead for the leader is side, around and goes, think of stirring something, like stirring a soup for instance, wha, pa, OK? Female: So you really, really want to pretend like you're drawing a figure on the floor with your leg. And that will be portrayed through your upper body, so the purpose is to bring my left leg around into a cross off axis. For followers make sure that you're embrace is really intact. And what you want to do is you don't want to collapse your back in the embrace, keeping that technique of spine straight, it's like doing a plank pose in yoga, you're going to slightly do a small push up, and the flexion will happen in your ankles, and as he takes you forward you let that leg loose from the hip joint. So as he takes me to the side I'm already slightly off axis and he brings my leg around. It's really important that you keep your leg loose from the hip joint, so then you can create a nice circular move. Male: Yes. Leaders make sure that you do not do this with the arm again, you move the torso as a whole piece. Pa, wha, boom. Not pa, wha. Let's try it. [pause] Notice that I'm arranging my footwork again. From here I make sure that she gets back in her place, and then we continue. Female: So ladies, help your partner and bring your body back to axis. Don't stay expecting him to hold onto you. So as he steps closer to your axis bring your whole spine upright. Male: Adjusting your feet is good in tango, you need to be comfortable, always think comfortable. As a leader this is your responsibility as well as a follower. And there you have it.

Before we worry about our hands and what to grab and what techniques we're trying to do, before we can do any of that, we have to learn how to get off line and how to move our body, our hips and our legs, before you worry about the hands. So in the very beginning, I'm going to use hanmi, which is a very thin stance in Aikido, it's not a terribly wide stance, both heels are almost on the same line, take a comfortable step back, one of the first things that you'll see is irimi, which literally means to enter, and basically just looks like a step forward. So irimi one step forward, irimi step forward. So in Aikido you generally consider the movement to be very circular, which is true, your hips are moving in a circle, but the feet are moving on a very linear fashion, so irimi, irimi. The next set of tai sabaki or body movement that we're gonna see is tenkan. Tenkan, basic hanmi, pivot the hips and step straight back, pivot the hips and step straight back. Again like in irimi this is a very linear foot movement, they move backwards on a line, not a large circle. So we're keeping our feet close together, in a linear form. The other side, pivot step back, tenkan, tenkan, tenkan. So the next series or set of tai sabaki that we use quite often is kaiten, and kaiten is literally just a pivot. So just going to turn my hips, the feet stay relatively close to where they began. Kaiten, kaiten, kaiten. So it's not a terribly complicated group of movements, we've got three basic steps irimi, tenkan, kaiten. So with a partner, you can generally see how a lot of the techniques look a little confusing, shomen uchi, this is a lot of movement. When you break it down, irimi, tenkan, kaiten, kaiten, irimi. So just using those three steps that we've learned, we can execute larger techniques. Shomen uchi, irimi, tenkan, kaiten. So right now ikkyo ura, irimi, tenkan, irimi, tenkan, kaiten, irimi, tenkan, kaiten. So many of the techniques that we do in Aikido look very complicated, but once you get the basic steps down and figure out how to arrange them in various orders, the Aikido techniques become much more simplistic. Tai sabaki, basic body movement.

How Much Does Basic Training Pay? | Boot Camp

Watch more Boot Camp: Learn about Basic Training videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/498560-How-Much-Does-Basic-Training-Pay-Boot-Camp Basic training pay could be a confusing topic. Please consult your recruiter for the exact pay that you're going to be getting at basic training, but let's go ahead and start with the basics. Starting in 2012 the lowest enlisted rank, which is an E1, is gonna have a base pay of $1,491 a month. Now you're gonna be paid bi-monthly. So every two weeks you will have half that amount be deposited automatically in your bank account. Set up auto pay before you go because it's mandatory. So if you don't have a bank account, get one. Arrange for someone to pay your bills in your civilian life. A lot of recruits forget about this. You have online bill pay, or auto pay with your bank. Go ahead and get that set up before you even leave. Pay will increase if you have a house, a child, or a spouse. Don't get married just for the extra money guys. Uh, with the price of the engagement ring you're barely gonna break even, believe me. This pay varies widely depending on your situation but can range from $400 to $1,100 per month. So consult your recruiter exactly for the amount you'll be getting because every situation is different. Even though you're working for your government training to serve your country, Uncle Sam still wants his piece of the action so you're gonna have to pay income tax on your base pay. But you will not have to pay on your housing allowance. That's gonna be tax free.

I have Chad here again. Again, from a righty-righty situation. Chad is going to slowly throw the cross. Just for the drill I'm going to slip, okay? So it works for that basic slipping move where I slip my head to the outside. But not only am I moving my head, I'm putting the cross to his chin. Okay? So again, as I slip, I try to counter with my own cross. Okay? So I move my head off on a 45 degree angle, but I'm also doing a cross at the same time. So again, he fires a cross, I slip and hit. Again, slip and hit. One more time. Slip and hit. Okay? So, the second counter, you can counter with a hook. Alright? But this time I'm slipping my head to the outside, so as he counters with that, or he throws that cross I'm going to counter with my lead hook. So again, I move my head to the outside and obviously I'm putting the hook to the chin, but for now I'm just going to put it on a glove with the hand for target practice. I want to make sure that when he throws across I don't leave my head center lined because I'll still get hit with the cross. I move my head out to the side so that I can come across or over with that hook. Okay? So a little faster. He throws a cross, I come over the top with a hook. So that's a basic way to counter the cross. What he doesn't want to do is he doesn't want to leave his chin down so he's open for that counter. So again, I can counter that cross with that hook. So again, he throws a cross. I'll come with my own cross, or he throws a cross and I come with my own hook. And I'll also, off of a MMA counter to the cross, if I throw the cross Chad will come in for that double leg take down. Those are your basic counters to the cross.
