How to Teach Yourself Martial Arts
This last April a mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter by the name of Nick Diaz was asked about his use of cannabis in a prefight interview. The Times quoted him as replying I'm more consistent about everything being a cannabis user. This was followed up by And I have an easy way to deal with being tested . I can pass a drug test in eight days with herbal cleansers. I drink 10 pounds of water and sweat out 10 pounds of water every day. I'll be fine (1). Sure enough he passed the postgame drug test later that month (2). Nick has not always passed in the past however. At least two different state commissions have caught him testing positive for cannabis when he did not expect to be tested. First, in 2007, while fighting for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Mr. Diaz had a win over Japan's Takanori Gomi revoked after testing positive for THC because it was claimed his levels were so high he must be numbed to the pain.

Perhaps we could teach them martial arts like tai-chi, a chinese system of slow meditative physical exercise designed for relaxation, balance and health.

They are small when they start, grow in size, and then break up and dissipate. You can imagine yourself as a surfer who will ride the wave, staying on top of it until it crests, breaks, and turns into less powerful, foamy surf. The basis of urge surfing is similar to that of many martial arts. In judo, one overpowers an opponent by first going with the force of the attack. By joining with the opponent's force, one can take control of it and redirect it to one's advantage. This type of technique of gaining control by first going with the opponent allows one to take control while expending a minimum of energy. Urge surfing is similar. You can join with an urge (rather than meet it with a strong opposing force) as a way of taking control of your urge to use. After you have read and become familiar with the instructions for urge surfing, you may find this a useful technique when you have a strong urge to use.
