Good news! If you ever need to defend yourself, you’ve got back-up–gravity! Drop your weight and you’ll have more power and more options.

Some thoughts from Lesson #5…

Have you never tried to pick up a cranky baby? Even a small creature can be difficult to control when they drop their weight and move all over the place.

So, don’t just think of fighting as pushing and pulling on a horizontal plane, also consider moving on a vertical plane, rising and dropping.

Here are four exercises to help you develop your ability to drop your weight and drive it.

FROG STRETCH. Drop like a frog as low as you can and make yourself comfortable. This is a great way to loosen up your hips and your lower back.

STANCE SQUATS. Take your defensive stance from Lesson #3 and lower your body, bending your knees and keeping your head straight. Try not to tense up when you do this. Focus on the movement, not the muscle.

Dropping to your knee is even better, but don’t smash it on the ground! Be careful.

FAST DROPS. Pretend you’re in an elevator and someone cuts the cable. Drop your weight and catch it. Start with just a couple inches and work up to dropping a foot or two… then to a knee.

DROP AND DRIVE. Shift your body back and forth, keeping your back straight (don’t lean). Then try side-to-side.

Now, add a shuffle. Drop you weight and drive it forward. Your goal isn’t just to move anywhere you want to, but to move with power.

Remember–when it comes to fighting for what’s important to you, don’t just drop the weight of your body, drop the weight of your soul!

Don’t let anyone move you.
