The fact that the Filipino knife fighting a serious thing and may well start a 'move, move, move! Attack, attack, attack! Take his hand! " – Shouted the master of knife fight Tim Wade. While the smell of burning wood is felt in musty air of the Academy of Jiu-Jitsu Ralph Gracia, the city of Berkeley, Calif., Tim Wade continues to shout his instructions over the typical rattan sticks knocking against each other. 'He who controls the terms controls the distance, controls the fight '- adds a guru. Guru Wade closely watching the speed, power stroke and footwork students two-day seminar on knife fighting in Pekiti-Tirsia system of Kali. Magini Tim Wade – certified master instructor, the president of Pekiti Tirsia World Health Organization (PTGO), Pekiti Tirsia head of the organization in the United States.

At the guru Wade extensive experience in the Philippines, where he currently serves as instructor at the Armed Forces of the Philippines, the National Police, government and private companies. Pekiti Tirsia Group in San Francisco in conjunction with instructor Mike Shaymerom inviting Tim Wade, organized the event in Berkeley, where the author was directly involved. Wade was kind enough to leave his home in Dallas and come here to share your knowledge with kalistas (the so-called practitioners potash). Guru Wade constantly reminds his students about the fundamental principles of knife fighting – you do not want to get hit by any of the weapons. Protect yourself, stay constantly on the move and attack, attack – this is what should be your Kali Kali main prioritetom.Istoriya – ancient martial art originally from the Philippines.

Ergometer Bikes

Posted by Toni - December 15th, 2014

Static bikes are gym equipment that allow to perform cycling indoor and pedaling without leaving the site, simulating the movements of cycling, sport that has large transfer. They have brake mechanism that opposed friction to ride not in vacuum, regulator of resistance to modify the intensity of the effort and inertia system so that pedaling is fluid. Static bikes allow you to work the lower part of the body and perform an excellent cardiovascular exercise. Concept static bikes is commonly used for sports training for its low impact on joints, safety movement and effectiveness in cardiovascular exercise. Static bikes are used for aerobic training, improve fitness, lose weight, rehabilitation, winter training, or warm up before races. It is a widely used exercise machine both at the domestic level as a professional in health clubs and racing teams. Types look at the main types of static bikes: vertical: feature saddle, pedals and handlebars, and they adopt a position similar to a conventional bicycle. Recumbent: be pedaling sitting on a seat with backrest which avoids the inconvenience of the saddle, being suitable for the elderly or with back problems.

Spinning: are characterized by a heavy wheel of inertia (20 kg or more) that accumulates kinetic energy and simulate the inertia of movement, allowing a similar to conventional bicycles pedaling. Fixing rollers: are devices that allow immobilize conventional bicycles and adapt them as static bikes. Without fixing rollers: they allow you to use conventional bicycles as static bikes but without block the wheels, so it not only trains physical fitness but also balance and rhythm of pedalling. Pedaling is fluid because it is solid roller with an optimum moment of inertia. Mini: they consist only of pedals and resistance, no saddle or handlebar, by what they take up little space and are cheaper. Placed on the ground and the user pedal while sitting on a Chair. Resistance static bikes created resistance and allow you to adjust the difficulty of pedalling, and may employ different systems: mechanism of friction: offers direct frictional resistance adjustable by turning a lever.

Flywheel: a heavy disc regulates the resistance and ensures that the bike working smoothly. Magnetic resistance: eliminates the mechanical friction and therefore allows a soft and easily adjustable. Resistance by fluid: oil, opposing greater resistance the more intensely pedaling or offers resistance by means of a fan that moves air. A Reed Reed, cycle-Ergometer or bicycle Ergometer, is an electronic device that measures various parameters of the pedalling and informs the user of the work done. The majority of static bikes indicate speed, mileage and time spent, while the most complete have heart rate monitor, meter power, calories consumed, exercise programs or a simulator that shows the user on a screen (TV, PC or display) circulating in virtual landscapes with others cyclists, wind, ports, etc.
