How to train safely: training area and external people
In this video, we rapidly talk about how to choose / adapt a training area to start your practice (follow our free online Kung Fu course) and how to manage the people around you.
Today we are gonna talk about safety: in your training area and in relation to the persons around you
Most of 6 Dragons Kung Fu's exercises can be executed everywhere but it is preferable to perform them on a wooden surface
For the exercises that involve the possibility of losing balance (like sparring and so on), it is better to choose a soft surface, like a Tatami square or a lawn with grass free of stones
The surrounding environment: only advanced practitioners can train on an area with unwanted obstacles, in all the other cases, it is essential to choose / adapt an appropriate place
It must be free of obstacles, without moving parts, no unstable elements, no sharp elements, nothing easy to break; furthermore we will have to fill all the edges with something with a certain thickness, able to do not compress too much in the moment of impact. Let's avoid poor quality foam rubber.
People and security: it is always necessary to be in contact with a person in case of possible help, in case of illness, injuries (etc.)
Never do sparring without having at least a person vigilant, we must be at least in 3.
Never involve unknown people in training and especially in sparring.
External people can attend training as long they do not deconcentrate who are training, do not interact with the workout
They must stay at a safe distance, at least 3 times the longest elongation of our limbs, training tools or weapons from the area where we are training
A final note for parents: children must always be supervised; if an adult can independently manage the responsibilities of a serious daily martial arts training, this does not happen for minors It is up to parents to monitor behavior and security.
Remember: training can be a fantastic moment to share with the persons we like, we love and so on but it must be safe.
