I have NEVER EVER EVER heard of Krav Maga....until yesterday......and now I've heard it twice in 2 days. It has come up in 2 completely different contexts....and both times I had to look it up.....WTW? Krav Maga is a military self-defence and fighting system developed for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and Israeli security forces derived from a combination of techniques sourced from Boxing, Wrestling, Judo, Aikido, and Karate. Krav Maga is known for its focus on real-world situations and its extreme efficiency. It was derived from the street-fighting experience of Hungarian-Israeli martial artist Imi Lichtenfeld, who made use of his training as a boxer and wrestler, while defending the Jewish quarter against fascist groups in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia, during the mid-to-late 1930s. In the late 1940s, after his aliyah to Mandatory Palestine, he began to provide lessons on combat training to what was to become the IDF. OK...so hard core self defense....and now I want to take a class....but.....I'm kind of a jazzer maga kind of gal....... Which brings me to my point.....I do NOT exercise. I'm not coordinated and I'm not athletic and I'm...well....let's face it....fat! SOoooooo....I have been trying to get my groove move on and I got a fitbit for my birthday and I joined a pickleball group for some aerobic type fun. Pickleball is a paddleball sport (similar to a racket sport) that combines elements of badminton, table tennis, and tennis. Two or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, much like a wiffle ball, with 26-40 round holes, over a net. The sport shares features of other racket sports: the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules somewhat similar to tennis, with several modifications. Soooo...to break it down...it's no where near the hard core Krav Maga....but it's sooo fun! I might be the youngest person in the group and I kinda suck...but I love that it's a casual fun way to get in some exercise. now......to the frustrating part......I've been trying to get Mike to go for over a year, since he's retired and can go anytime...and even though he is within the ideal age range...he has declined my invite to participate. TMI about my life- but he complains about my physical shape and yet, here is something we could do together that is sooo fun and so laid back and yet....exercise. If he really wanted to encourage physical activity, here is his chance, but he no. Sorry to whine and complain....but anyways...Pad Patter is is a fun convo...sooooo..... What's your favorite physical activity?
