Does practicing karate give you an unfair advantage when it comes to moves in the bedroom? Some say that there’s no doubt, and we’re not just talking about self-touting karate enthusiasts! Along with an increased awareness of their surroundings those that practice martial arts also have the benefit of some of the lessons that are integral to their art. Whether its accompanying each major move with an encouraging shout or making your mind go quiet, there are plenty of lessons from the dojo that will make you a better lover as well as a better fighter.
Lesson 1: Make it LOUD!
Good karate always sounds loud with loads of shouting. In karate this is called kiai and can focus the body and mind as well as increase oxygenated blood flow to the extremities. It can also declare your fighting spirit, be a form of intimidation, self-reassurance, or a rallying war cry.
Sex can be quite similar and letting out the occasional shout is a great release, a perfect way to increase blood flow to the extremities (hint hint), and can let your other half know how much you’re enjoying it, rallying them on to an even better performance. Use some sex lubricants (browse online at SexToys247.net.au) to enjoy and be more comfortable while doing it.
Lesson 2: Make your Mind Quiet
When you fight you should tune out everything but your enemy and in the bedroom it’s a good idea to do the same, of course in that situation it will most likely be your lover, not your enemy. While distractions can be deadly during a fight they might do the same to your love life. For those that find themselves unable to put away their internal debates over what’s for dinner or details about tomorrows car pool try silently describing everything your partner is doing to you. It won’t take long for every flick of their tongue to have your full attention and completely silence that inner monologue.
Lesson 3: Live for the Moment
When you’re practicing karate you can’t know exactly how a fight will end up despite what you’re hoping for. Your opponent might pull out a new move you weren’t expecting or do something you really don’t like. The same can happen in the bedroom and spending too much of the experience thinking about what you wish would happen will take you out of the moment and leave you unable to savour the pleasure at hand. In karate the practice of “no mind” holds that the martial artist be open to anything and attached to nothing. It’s a great lesson to take towards sex, in other words stop worrying about having an orgasm and enjoy every touch, sensation, and the path they lead you.
Lesson 4: Feel the Power of the Hips
The center of stability and power for martial arts lies in the hips. You don’t just throw a punch from your shoulder but rather turn your hip into it. The punch becomes stronger and has more impact as it’s backed by the core muscles. Those hips can be used to similar effect in bed by getting on top and rotating those hips as though playing with a hula hoop. Otherwise try to make repetitive half circles, similar to a windshield wiper. It will make the vaginal walls more receptive thanks to an increased blood flow to the area as well as definitely driving him wild.
