Simple Rules of Surfing That You Should Definitely Follow (part 2 of 2)

The fourth rule is that you need to be strong and fit to surf. Always remember that you need to be a  strong swimmer. If you lose your board, then you need to swim all the way to the shore and you should expect fighting rip tides which are potentially dangerous to surfers.

The fifth rule is that you should know when to bail. You already know that you have to hold on to your board at all times but there will also come a situation where you will need to know when to bail out of your board. This will prevent injuries in your part when you wipe out and it will also prevent injuries on other surfers that may be on your way.

The sixth rule is that you should always surf in patrolled beaches. It is a fact that finding a secret surfing place can be a lot of fun. But, you have to consider the fact that surfing has its potential dangers. By surfing in patrolled beaches, you can be sure that someone will be there to help you out in case you get in to trouble in the water.

The seventh rule is to never ever drop in. This means that you shouldn’t take someone else's wave. Always remember that the person nearest to the breaking part of the wave has priority for surfing the wave. Dropping in is considered to be rude as well as very dangerous.

The eight rule is you should never surf alone. Although it would be great to have the entire beach to yourself, you have to remember that surfing alone is very dangerous. Think of your surf buddies as your backup and also as your savior. They will be able to assist you if you do get in to trouble and you also need to do the same for them.

These are the things that you have to remember about surfing. By memorizing these rules by heart and by following them religiously, you can be sure that you and your fellow surfers will be able to have a lot of fun on your day at the beach riding the waves.

However, you need to keep in mind that whenever you go out and surf, you need to be aware that there are a few unwritten rules in surfing that you should know about.

The first rule is that you should never drink and surf. Or, do drugs and surf for that matter. You can get drunk after surfing but you need to remember that drinking while surfing is really not that much different when you drink and drive. You will have poor judgment, which can result in accidents and even death.

The second rule is that you should always be aware of everything. Surfing is fun if you do it safely and responsibly. Always be aware of the other surfers in the water, the current water conditions, and also be aware of any signs of dangers in the water.

The third rule would be staying in your comfort zone. Sure you want to try the big waves and surf like the pros do but you need to remember that you should never push yourself too far. Always stay in the waves that you are comfortable surfing. If you mastered it and you are more confident to try bigger waves, then you should do so gradually.

Martial Boxing - Unveiling The Styles For Safety And Efficiency (part 2 of 2)

Boxers at the Self Defense Stuff
Traditionally, boxing as a sport has a set of rules to follow. Anyone who violates one of the stipulations will face the necessary sanction. As a boxer gets into the ring to face an opponent, he must be prepared to bear with the series of acceptable and unacceptable types of responses. In the end, you must fight and play with every sense of fairness.
Of course, there will come a time that you will encounter a real life scenario and one which is out of the ring. In this circumstance, you don't have rules to follow because you never know how your opponent will attack you. Thus, this calls for the need to defend yourself at any rate.

If this happens, you must forget about being fair. You need to let the rules slip out of your mind. It is not a game or a sport anymore but some real danger is already confronting you. This therefore means that knowledge in martial boxing will help you. Your moves should aim at disarming your opponent and damaging him in defense of yourself.

Above all other qualities, martial boxing is centered at efficiency and safety. The strategies are meant to disable your attacker so that he will not succeed in harming you. You can stage the fight in no time because speed is also important in here.

Martial Boxing - Unveiling The Styles For Safety And Efficiency (part 1 of 2)
Do you have your heart at boxing? Have you ever heard of martial boxing? Yes, the term itself defines its very nature. It is a kind of boxing that adapts some martial arts styles and movements. For one, this kind is known to exude a different level of punching power.

It is a misconception to say that those who do martial arts don't have any knowledge on punching or that they don't carry with them the ability to make precise punches. This is one of the common wrong notions that the society succumbs into. The truth is that the boxing trainees who begin to integrate the martial arts styles into their craft get to know more precise moves and that includes honing their punching skills.
Good and Useful Punches to Keep in Mind
Some people think that learning martial arts is both cool and tough. Well, the choice is yours. If you think that it will be too daunting on your part, then try to learn something else. The world of martial arts is too vast that you will definitely find something else that will be more convenient for you. If you do aim to learn the good punches, then better incorporate boxing with kung fu or any other martial arts, so to speak.

It is in such manner that you will be trained to focus your entire energy onto what you are supposed to punch and then be able to use your hands to give out a high punch to your opponent. What mostly matters is that you take in all principles with a light and positive attitude because that is the best way of learning things.

Scleroderma and Renal Crisis (part 2 of 2)

Start Treatment Early

Patients with renal involvement in scleroderma should start treatment as early as possible. This condition is quite serious and could develop before anyone would know. To prevent further damage, it is highly advisable that a patient should start treatment early. If ever there would be significant damage done to the kidneys, little can be done to reverse the effects.

The effectiveness of treating renal involvement in scleroderma would depend heavily on the level of damage already inflicted at that time of treatment. The less damage there is, the more likely a patient would recover from the condition. Since scleroderma in general has no known cure, treatment for renal involvement is more focused on limiting damage.

Can This Condition Be Treated?

Even if scleroderma in general has no treatment, a lot of things can still be done to help relieve a patient from the damages done by scleroderma to the kidneys. However if the kidney is already totally impaired, little can be done to reverse the effect. But if treatment would start early, then treatment is very possible through medical help which would involve medications, rehabilitation therapies and surgery for some cases.

The point that all patients or those who are widely involved with renal scleroderma is that it is treatable and a lot has been done in the past to help cure people with this condition. The key to relief from it is early treatment as well as taking medications religiously and as well as careful medical attention.

Because renal involvement in scleroderma is quite sensitive, this would require the utmost attention of the doctor as well as a lot of effort from the patient.

Scleroderma and Renal Crisis (part 1 of 2)

Scleroderma renal crisis is the term used to describe kidney involvement in scleroderma because of the very much discomforting symptoms brought about by it that indeed puts the patient into a crisis. This happens when scleroderma, of which the cause is unknown, would reach the kidneys, limiting blood supply to it and limiting its functions or totally impairing it. This condition could only happen to those with the diffuse form of scleroderma which is called limited sclerosis.

Kidney involvement in scleroderma would usually start of as an increase in blood pressure then would later show more signs within weeks or days. Scleroderma renal crisis is mainly associated with a decrease in kidney function, the appearance of protein in urine and in severe cases, accompanied by heart failure.

How Does This Develop?

Scleroderma would usually start of in the skin in the form of calcinosis or Raynaud’s phenomenon. If it sticks with those symptoms, then that case of scleroderma is most likely limited scleroderma or CREST which is the milder form of the illness. Although this can disable, it would tend most of the time not to be fatal. However, if it spreads to the internal organs, the kidneys in particular, then that would be the beginning of scleroderma renal involvement.

The connective tissues in the kidneys are the ones that are primarily involved in scleroderma. Scleroderma causes scar tissue to develop in them, thus making them thicker. This also limits blood flow to the kidneys that in turn could impair or actually kill some parts of the kidney or the kidney itself. This could also lead to heart complications that in sever cases, could lead to heart failure.
