Martial Arts Dilemma Required Quick Thinking

  • Posted on December 31, 2013 at 8:12 pm

This story is provided in response to a request made by my teacher, Soke (Grand Master) Masaaki Hatsumi, during a recent visit to training in Japan. During one of the training sessions, Soke was suggesting that everyone, regardless of rank, should make it a point to talk to those with actual combat experience and learn from these people. The point is, if you do not know what a real fight is like, you will not be able to adequately train for a real situation. I was asked to share some of my experience in the treatment of an attack and the following story came to mind. Although I have much experience in dealing with danger and dangerous people, this particular result stands out as both a success when I was able to use some of my Ninpo-taijutsu martial arts training and a learning experience where I was really able to control both my awareness and response, instead of closing and mentally “hope” for the best.

*** The incident occurred many years ago while stationed in what was then West Germany. I was serving with the United States Military Police Corps of the Army. My partner and I were called to respond to a unit where a soldier is to attack others, including the officer in charge. When we arrived, we thought it was the scene, there was nobody but the manager of the residence. I had no idea about the incident. What none of us knew was that problem was occurring next door and moves in our direction.

Types Of Skin And Skin Hydration

The skin is our outer layer, our wrapper. It protects us and separates us from the outside, yet allows the communication, interaction and perception. Its main function is to prevent the entry of pathogens, regulate body temperature and keep hydrated. Layers of the skin is divided into three layers are the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis (the innermost of all). In the epidermis are keratinocytes, cells that are born at the base of the epidermis and, as they develop, moving towards the surface where they die and form the stratum corneum, and rich in fat at the same time, does not allow prevents bacterial growth comes out of the water out, or maintaining skin hydration. If any injury or allergen reaches the skin, this will be also responsible for causing a signal to the immune system. In the dermis are collagen fibers that are renewed at a slower rate than keratinocytes.

This is the layer responsible for providing elasticity and firmness of the skin. Finally, the hypodermis is the innermost layer of the skin produnda live there adipocytes, primarily by fat cells formed and serve as a buffer against physical damage, reserve power and temperature control. TYPES OF SKIN Many times, when they ask us about our skin type can have doubts about it, because there are many factors that make change over time (age, disease, acne, geography, lifestyle, etc) . In summary, there are four skin types that broadly define briefly: Normal Skin: The person has no visible injuries, no feeling of discomfort. Is uniform and no allergic problems. Oily skin is a type of skin that is established at puberty, when androgen levels increase the production of sebaceous glands and consequently there is more fat in the skin. The skin becomes thick, bright points are visible sabaceos follicles are dilated. Dry Skin: The skin is not uniform.

There are cracked and scaly areas. In addition, the skin is tight even producing an unpleasant sensation in the person. Combination Skin: This is a combination skin type oily skin with dry skin. In other words, there are areas with a greater presence of fats and other, for example, are cracked. Does having dry skin is synonymous with water I need? This is undoubtedly one of the first questions that people do. In many cases, the water in the skin is not retained and "escape" because they fail the structures that maintain hydration. Hydration Matiena What then? In Dermatology there are two major structures such as the Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF) which is composed of proteins, urea, lactate, uric acid, ammonia, sugars and other organic acids which are responsible for retaining water in the dead keratinocytes . Today, hyaluronic acid also plays an important role in the capture of water into the cells. The lipids keratinocytes go abroad when they die and are responsible for the other structure, an impermeable layer composed of fatty acids, cholesterol and ceramides to prevent the passage of water through the cells.

Puebla gave her craft his hallmark, while the potters of the time asked the viceroy of New Spain to protect manufacturing processes, to which he agreed to generate a series of ordinances that describe the processes were based on the mud and other materials obtained from the new land and their distinctive colors, which are six: Blue Gordo, which is highlighted, fine blue, orange, yellow, Green and Black. These ordinances lost validity with the independence of Mexico in 1910, however, the craftsmen for generations continued to develop as he had ordered the viceroy, and to protect it from imitations, very handy at present, was requested in 1998 the designation of origin and protection of its production completely by hand, by a Mexican official regulation (NOM).

Let it dry in the sun until it loses moisture, to proceed to bake.
