STAY FIT EVEN WHILE ON VACATION

DON’T MISS A DAY OF TRAINING

When families start thinking about joining our dojo, it’s not uncommon to have some questions about the studio and staff. We at Olson’s Martial Arts Academy understand this and are here to answer any questions that you might have. Owner and instructor Master Amanda Olson can respond to your concerns quickly and factually. If you have any questions, you can reach her via email at amanda@askmastermom.com .

We can all agree that taking breaks is good for us. Getting out of the office, away from school, or even just out of the house for a few days can reenergize you, increase motivation, and refresh your mind. However, taking too long of a break from martial arts leads to loss of the skills you’ve trained for and learned. If you have a vacation coming up and don’t want to miss a day of training, here are a few things you can do. INVOLVE YOURSELF PHYSICALLY. One of the best ways to stay fit while you’re on a trip is to get involved in physical activities. Keep an eye out for walking tours, biking activities, or hiking trails you can enjoy while immersing yourself in the city, country, and community you’re visiting. It’s also crucial to plan ahead for these future workouts; be sure to bring appropriate attire and determine when and where you’ll be able to exercise. LOOK UP OTHER SCHOOLS. Long trips increase the chance of falling out of a regular workout or training schedule. In cases like these, it’s beneficial to look up local martial arts schools to enroll in for a short while. While this can help students with regular training, other schools will have different protocols and teaching methods that can disrupt what you’ve already learned. So before taking this step, do plenty of research and ask one of our teachers if this is the right choice for you.

PESTO CHICKENWITH BLISTERED TOMATOES INGREDIENTS

1 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

2 1/2 tbsp olive oil, divided

4 boneless and skinless chicken breasts, pounded to a 1-inch thickness

6 tbsp spinach pesto

2 cups cherry tomatoes

Salt and pepper to taste

1 garlic clove, thinly sliced

1/4 cup whole-wheat panko

1 tsp red wine vinegar

PRACTICE YOUR FORMS. If your room is large enough or if your accommodations are close to a park, then go through the forms you’ve already learned. Students should already be practicing at home what they’ve learned in school to keep forms top of mind, so going through them on your trip can also be beneficial. Not only does it keep your body fit and mind sharp, but it also improves your form. Practice makes perfect. The most important part of your trip is to not let your training prevent you from enjoying your break. With careful planning and determination, you can exercise and get the most from your vacation.
