I walked steadily just ahead of David and Jay-R. We had just entered the doors of the Resorts World Manila Performance Theater. It felt like I was a kid again; walking into a movie theater to watch a movie that I had been anticipating for months prior.

The auditorium was a large room easily able to sit hundreds of individuals. On stage was a Medium sized ring with a few rows of seats all around it. I handed my ticket to the usher so he could direct me to our seats; without a word he smiled and pointed toward the seats near the ring on stage.

Ring Side Seats

We found our selves some prime seats and waited excitedly for the show to being. I took out the program and took a look at what we had in store for us. “Fight For Peace” was the name of the show and we had been personally invited by the great Tony Reyes who was the Event Director this evening.

10 Kickboxing & Muay Thai matches and 2 Mixed Martial Arts fights were scheduled for the evening. I read over the program slowly as we waited for the show to begin; despite being so closely involved in martial arts, I haven’t had many chances to watch many live fights in my life. Tonight signaled my first Pro-Kickboxing or Muay Thai event.

Before I was able to finish reading the show began and host began to make his first announcements just before calling for the first couple of competitors to the ring. The next 2 hours was a blur of non-stop action. Fight after fight the competitors come out and put on a show; giving everything they have.

David and I couldn’t help ourselves; we were screaming, and yelling through most every match. When the theater was quiet our voices could be heard from end to end; and as the night drew on the rest of the theater began to follow suit.

Competitors from China, USA, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Australia, and the Philippines fought that night. The 3 Filipino’s put on an exciting show; and the home town crowd cheered with approval. Ryan Jakiri of the Philippines defeated Kahei Kodera of Japan by tko and Jin Wenhao of China suffered the same fate at the hands of Agustin Delarmino Jr. also of the Philippines.

Show Stopping Finale

The Muay Thai fights were capped off by a Championship bout between Hong Kong’s Bryan To Hang Lam and Australian born Filipino Reinhard Badato.

The Five round match had everyone on the edge of their seats as each competitor stood their ground and exchanged blow after blow. While each individual showed massive heart and stood fearless against their opponent Badato would deservingly walk away with the unanimous decision win over Hang Lam.

The fight for peace was a everything you would expect from a great show; the perfect venue, quality competitors, non-stop action, and beautiful ladies. We were honored to have been invited to see such a great show and in all my years I have never seen a better Muay Thai show that had not a single Thai in it! Over all? A damn good show.

I have noticed over the years that most professionals in combat sports who win their fights fail to know why.

As a result, they cannot be consistently effective. Remember when you had a great day—when everything went well and you did everything right?

The next day, your energized and ready to see another great day of training. However, its not working out so well. Your getting caught. Your are being pushed back. Everything you do isnt working. What happened?

Failure to Repeat Success

If you do not know what you did right, you cannot do it again. Most successful fighters and professionals do not know what they do that makes them successful. They are what is often called “unconscious competents.”

As a result, when things are going well, they have difficulty knowing why. When something works well one day, they cannot repeat it the next time. It also means they cannot teach their skills to others.

Have you ever seen a top fighter coaching only to discover he cannot teach what he knows?

Not knowing why you are successful one day means you may not be able to repeat your success when you need it. Without such proper coaching, whether you are at the gym, competing, your health, work or realationships, success on Tuesday does not increase the chances of success on Wednesday.

The road to success is no accident

The road to success is no accident.

How Recognize Success

In short, the reason for most failures in competing, work or life can be summed up:

1. If there is a problem, you ignore the cues, either because you do not notice or because you do not know what else to do.

2. If there is no problem, you do not know what you did right and cannot repeat it.

3. You dont have a system in place and dont understand how, what, and why its happening

This is the cornerstone of my system that I teach. To help you understand whats going on. To show you how to recognize these cues. To become more aware of yourself and the world you live in. To see more, hear more, and feel more. And be able to apply it in martial arts, work, health, and life.

How to Begin

We’re tired and training is only half way through when David calls us to the heavy bags. The distinct sound of his voice cuts through the air signaling me to start kneeing the bag.  It is worthless to think about how long you will be doing this for or anything as far as training goes.

My body begins to move twisting and thrusting the large knuckle of my knee into the bag.  As each consecutive shot lands my lungs begin to feel the weight of the task and my muscles begin to feel the fatigue.  “We’ve only just started” I say to myself with an attempt to drag myself out of the drudge I was creating.

Staying focused. Dig deep to find it

When the lights went off Davids voice again could be heard cutting through the air like a hot knife through butter “Keep going!” Night had fallen and all the lights were out.  The moon was hidden behind high clouds and the Camp Grounds have little to no street lights.  We were in complete darkness.

All I could hear was my own breath exhaling with exertion with each strike that landed on the heavy bag.  I couldn’t tell if my vision was becoming blurry because I couldn’t see anything and I could feel the intense heat being emitting from my back.  It was like the steam of a hot sauna and the more you moved the hotter it became.

Dig Deep

“Don’t stop, focus, strong body, strong mind.”  David has a way of motivating us the way no other individual could; it was as if he reaches deep down into your unplugs your capacity of fear right out of you.

As great as his abilities were I stumbled; still trying to use my eyes to find my balance I had mistaken a step and my ankle had collapse from it.  The second I stopped moving I immediately felt the weight of the world slam down on my shoulders.  The price you pay for stopping.

Training was far from over so I need to focus in order to keep myself upright and excel at the task.  In the haze of trying to get my body started again a small light cut through darkness of the Jungle I knew stood only a few meters away.  Then another, and another and slowly the fireflies began to appear.

The beauty of the gentle and delicate light touched me down in my soul.  Up until just a few weeks ago; in my 28 years of life I had never seen a firefly with my own eyes.  As I stood skipping my feet in rhythm the little lights flickered off in the distance and some how all the weight seem to disappear.

Finding the Calm in the Storm

“Focus on the fireflies” I whispered to myself.  Immediately after I let out a strong release from my lungs and my voice could be heard throughout the training area.  My knees began to land in succession on the heavy bag as my eyes locked on the twinkle of the fireflies.

I wasn’t certain how long after David turned the lights on and called for us to break and move on to the next portion of training; but i had unknowingly closed my eyes and the fireflies I had been focusing on were the ones hidden begins my eye lids.  When I opened them they were still there dancing in the distance of the night air.  It was as I could see them even with my eyes closed.

Had I been anywhere else in the world; in some closed off gym, even with all the world state of the art equipment, nothing could have kept me moving that night without the support of my Coach and the aid of the fireflies dancing in the night air.  The environment here is truly special and there is no place like it in the world.

Camp Jansson was a whole lot of fun and a great learning experience for me. http://campjansson.com/testimonials/great-learning-experience-for-me http://campjansson.com/testimonials/great-learning-experience-for-me#respond Sat, 24 Aug 2013 14:21:31 +0000 http://campjansson.com/?p=8145 [jamiesocial] Camp Jansson was a whole lot of fun and a great learning experience for me. Before arriving, I just imagined doing a bunch of exercise, training in martial arts and then leaving. I was focused on what I would get out of Camp Jansson and what I would take away with me. The trainers were friendly and knowledgeable and David was always checking on you and asking if you needed anything to make your stay more comfortable. The air was fresh and clean and the warm climate of the Philippines was awesome to train in. No one ever pressured you to do something if you didn’t want to or just weren’t up to it. It was laid-back and intense at the same time in a very interesting way. Something at the camp that still has me totally gobsmacked is the yoga. On the second morning, I woke up quite sore. After a yoga session, the soreness was gone, like it had never been there. I felt healed up and rested as well, absolutely bizarre. I was a complete beginner and only have a moderate level of fitness but still had a great time and didn’t feel out of place. I enjoy pushing myself within my comfort zone and that is what made this camp absolutely shine. I can’t wait to come back and hope I can get a few friends to come with me. I didn’t expect that I would enjoy it so much, by the end of my stay, I didn’t want to leave. Thanks again, Robbie [jamiesocial]
