#135402 - 10/05/04 06:18 PM A QUESTION FOR DR JERRY BEASLEY
Anonymous
Unregistered


Hello Dr Beasely. I have a question for you regarding your thoughts on what I should do for my workout. Here are my thoughts. I am big on weightlifting, NOT like a bodybuider at all,(as they are NOT that strong and not functional at all, like the Strongmen.) more like a Strongman , like Jesse Marunde. I think that the stronger you can become, the better your endurance. Do you recommend I lift mainly for JKD, or do you recommend I do cardiovascular excercise like sprints? Or is cardio a total waste of time? I do have bad knees , so keep this in mind when recommending excercises. I personally feel resistance excercise is the best, what are your thoughts on specific things I should do for a workout? Thanks.

Jerry Beasley, how come no response? Are you a fraud who likes to ride on the coat tails of Bruce Lee?

Razwell,
I think it might be time to consider changing your screen name to Razpoorly.

Sincerely,

Mr. Razwell,
I typically check posts at least one time per day. Your second remark was uncalled for. An apology is due.
Please state your goal. Are you a skilled martial artist or just beginning? Acquiring strength will be important. If you are at a level at which you can spar you will find you can combine cardio with limited resistance for an effective workout. To advance in martial art first concentrate on martial art! Lift to improve your attributes for martial art.
Also be patient. I will check in again Thursday.
As for Bruce Lee he was once a shinning star. He is no more. Each of us must in our own way make the most of the information he contributed. I have never been a devoted fan of Bruce Lee as a movie star. Nor do I have much interest in the way he lived his life. However I have for many years been a student of his "way" of practicing martial art. And, not because he was once a movie star but because he offered a glimpse at the truth in combat. If I can help you I will.

JB

Sorry that I made a statement like that. I basically am looking for a workout geared to making me fit for JKD. I am not a beginner. I already have plenty of strength , I just have bad knees, and am wondering what you recommend specifically for cardio and weights? Do you feel cardio is more important than weights, or is cardio a total waste of time, better spent lifting weights? Please be specific in what to do for a workout, but please keep in mind I have bad knees. Thanks.

Wow,
Haven't seen backpedaling that fast since
I took my kids to the Russian Circus. Aikia, I would like to commend you on your firm yet gracious response. It gives me an example to aspire too.

Sicerely,

Thanks Oldman. This is a well run site and members understand that the rules should be followed. I visited a site yesterday on which caustic remarks seemed to be common place. I won't be back to that site.
Razwell,
Cardio will always be an important part of martial arts training. You may combine weights and cardio by lifting in the following manner. Bicepts curl, stand up rowing, flys, bench press, bent over rowing etc... Standard upper body workout designed to facilitate martial arts attributes. Simply concentrate on technique and go for maximun reps (10-15). The number of reps will dictate the weight you use.Some experts would indicate 20-40 reps with lighter weights is good advice. Personally, I use the 15 reps and 1/2 minute rest between sets. Add push up, sit up and pull up exercises and concentrate on high repititions if you still have the energy after a 30 min workout.
Stretch the legs and perform your kicks while laying down ,( thereby taking some weight off the knees), do not lock out the kicks.
Hitting/punching the heavy bag, try for ten 3 minute rounds, will tell you if you need more cardio. If you can last 10, 3-minute rounds, your cardio is more than adequate!! I hit the bag on Tu-TH-Sa and use the above weight program on M-W-F.
For added benefit try to include some kali/escrima drills in your fitness workout.Give it a try and let me know. Good luck.
JB

Dr Beasley

Thank You. My knees are bad, but not so bad that I can only hit the bag, so could you please recommend a specific walking workout, and I can alternate with your bag hitting recommendation? Thanks.

Razwell,
If you can get through the 10 rounds on the bag you need no additional cardio work. In the principle of specificity of exercise you perform tasks that specifically improve your goal task. If your goal is to improve your martial arts you are better off completing routines that supplement the art. Kata is more useful than walking, bag work is more useful than kata, sparring is more useful than bag work. See the progression?
To begin a walking routine, stretch, then begin walking. As you improve include walking up and down inclines, walk backwards, include short sprints, then walk, carry a pack or weights, skip, kick as you walk, punch as you walk, and use your imagination to create sparring like tasks as you walk. You may also use your walking time to state personal affirmations, meditate, or, if you are in a rural environment, recognize the Heavenly beauty. Peace.

[This message has been edited by Razwell (edited 10-08-2004).]In the begining when this forum started I told everyone that I would have a zero tolerance policy. Ive gave you one warning already. Ive been leaniant and allowed everyone to speek freely, but respectfully. If everyone else can abide by this why should you be so different? Not only have you done it on my forum but other forums as well. Others may choose to tolerate it but I will not. I will delete you. I have nothing better to do than to spend my time ensuring that my domain is serene and respectful of all who come here and I will work to keep it that way.

Have you just totally wigged out man? Look at what you're doing. Calm down a little if you don't want people thinking you're psycho.

Dr. Jerry Beasly has a PhD in physical education from VA Tech (Go Hokies). He is a professor at Radford Univ. where he runs a program where one can get a BS degree in Phys. Ed. with Martial Arts concentration. This was the first program of its kind in the country and may still be the only one. Since 1988 he has hosted one of the biggest seminars in the country. He is an expert at TKD/karate/kickboxing. He is an authority on JKD the way Bruce Lee founded it. He is in the Black Belt Mag Hall of Fame as well as other honors and recognitions. He is co-founder of AIKIA, the Association of Independent Karate Instructors of America. Also, he has published several books and video training series as well as written numerous articles for various publications. If I've missed anything, I appologize.

Just wanted to add I'm not kissing up to Dr. Beasley. I don't know him, never met him, and never trained with him. I know a lot about him because I've enjoyed his writing and his tape series. Also, I live near Radford and have many friends who have attended the big July seminars he holds. I believe he's done enough and seen enough to know what's what. By the way, who is MegaPower16v? Have you accomplished what this man has or even a portion? I'll tell you I know I have not and maybe that's why I admire the guy. He's done what I only wish I could do.

Dr. Beasley has been my instructor for almost 2 years now. I DO know him personally, and i encourage him to not reply on these forums. The greatest fighters in the martial arts world are happy to share magazine covers with him, share their home with him or vice versa, and he will never show you his greatest accolades, which are letters from his friends about his character and abilities.
I sincerely hope this will be his last post regarding a subject which he published books on more than ten years ago, and i know for a fact, so does he.

RUkickboxer,
I admire your loyalty to your instructor however I wish he would reply more on the forums as well as his friends and collegues. I don't know why some people have to act in a disrespectful manner when all we are trying to do is share information. Personally if I were Dr. Beasley I would communicate on the forums without divulging my identidy. His knowledge would come through just the same and dissention with his views would be aimed at a faceless screen name; but that's me. I like hearing his opinion, always have whether I agree or not. I know some opinionated people who don't care for him. I know some who like him. I know some who can't wait for July to head for the seminar at Radford. None of it really matters to me except what I like and I like his insight into the fighting arts. Pass this message on to him please.

SilvertigerTKD1,
Thanks. You are exactly right. My mistake was to identify myself and let some take pot shots at a high profile martial artist. As soon as I have time to delete my old userName and register with a new one I'll be back to participate. You may eventually recognize me in 2005 as the user that only has good things to say about others . Until then I am not so wise that I can't learn from a student. Merry Christmas.

You have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year Dr. Beasley. I look forward to trying to figure out who you are in 2005. Perhaps in the new year I will contact you personally. If nothing else I would like an autographed copy of one of your books.
