Breast cancer ranks as the second common malignancy that endangers American women. According to breastcancer.org , breast cancer is estimated to account for 30% of all diagnosed cancer variants in women and one in 1 in every 8 women is diagnosed with it across the US every year. These stats are all the more sadder, because like most cancer variants, it is possible to effectively deal with and even conquer breast cancer to a great extent, if it is diagnosed early and the right lifestyle is followed. It is important that all women come to know of how to cope with breast cancer through early diagnosis and right lifestyle. October being National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it is time to read about three key lifestyle choices that can change your life forever if you are diagnosed with breast cancer.

1. A Choice for Your Health: Everyday Living and Breast Cancer
The most effective way of diagnosing breast cancer at the right time is to undergo regular medical check-ups at least from your thirties. For someone diagnosed with breast cancer or potential risk of it, the right lifestyle can make a difference. Following are some things which you can practice along with medications or treatments:

  • Consult a dietician and make healthy diet choices
  • Avoid dietary choices that conflict with the medications
  • Unless not advised otherwise by a physician, engage in physical activities that provide exercise
  • Though natural sleep cycles may get disrupted, try not to be sleep-deprived


2. A Choice for Your Mind: Meditation and Mind-Healing
Breast cancer can sap your mental energy as easy as might exhaust you physically. If the first set of tips are intended to help with your biological cycles and physical health, you also need to make choices for your mental health and strength:

  • Meditation: Meditative techniques can be practiced alone, or as part of a larger activity scheme like martial art or yoga. In either case, meditation can easily sooth down your mind, help you to rein negative thoughts and fill your mind with positivity.
  • Mind Healing: Mind Healing sometimes includes meditation, but it is a broader term that includes many techniques and practices intended to recover mental strength and stay positive. Mind healing techniques help you to ward off issues like depression, anxiety and stress. Mind healing techniques work best paired with martial arts.


3. A Choice for Your Life: Martial Arts
Martial arts are an efficient blend of physical movements, breath and mind healing techniques, spiritual wisdom and pragmatic efficiency. Being a regular practitioner of martial art can help you cope up with a complex illness like breast cancer by boosting your physical strength and will power. Research in martial arts have progressed so much that certain combinations of martial arts and mind healing is shown to make positive changes at cellular level, which can help to beat cancer. Martial arts can also help to fight a number of symptoms and effects that accompany the diagnosis and the treatment. These include fatigue, exhaustion, stress, low morale and pain.

At dedicated martial art schools like Bruce McCorry’s Academy (Peabody, MA), you can enroll for programs that blend martial arts and mind healing consultancy specifically for the benefit of learners who go through tough times like terminal illnesses. 

Make this October unique by making the right choices.

That is why we need learn about the one path that is scientifically shown to bring about small differences that together make a big change to our lives. This key to change is martial arts.

Martial Arts: The Key to Success
Success means different things to each of us. For a child, it can be doing well in school or activities. For an adult, it can be a good career, a stable relationship or a happy family. However you interpret success, martial arts can be the key that opens the door to a successful life.
  • Martial arts boosts health of the body and brain. Children who learn martial arts therefore tend to succeed in academics and other activities like sports or arts.

  • Martial arts boost confidence, self-esteem, competitive spirit and persistence. These are the core values that will help you to achieve your goals in your profession and passion.

Martial Arts: The Key to Balance 
Those who succeed in their goals often fail in life because they lose the balance. Balancing your life implies more than one things, which martial arts can help with.
  • One is to find the right balance in taking care of your body, mind and spirit. The blend of physical activities and meditative techniques in martial arts does this for you.
  • As it improves both your outward behavior and your inner self, martial arts will help you to balance your priorities between you and others.
  • A third way in which martial arts help to find balance is by improving your personal and public life. As much as it makes you a good competitor for the outer world, it helps you to build your relationship with your partner or family.

Martial Arts: The Key to Happiness
The greatest power of martial arts is that it can help you to be at peace with yourself while helping you to achieve what you want in life. There are specific ways in which this becomes possible:
  • Through improving immunity and reducing health problems
  • By de-cluttering your mind and providing stress-relief
  • By providing an outlet for your frustrations and worries
  • Through regulating mood swings and cultivating a positive attitude to life


These claims sound like miracles. But they are real, as proven by multiple studies. Martial art changes your life one step at a time, by slowly transforming your physique, mindset and attitude. With good instructors to help, martial arts can turn the life around for anyone. Therefore, all-encompassing martial art programs like the ones at Bruce McCorry’s Academies take care to cater to all.

This is a significant moment for the anti-abuse movements across the nation, as this October marks three decades since the month has been declared Domestic Violence Awareness Month. However, the campaigns that have been going on since 1980s haven't helped in erasing the issue, as the contemporary stats prove. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV),
  • Even today, 20 people in US get physically abused by intimate partners every minute
  • Every day marks 20,000 incidents of domestic violence reported over phone to anti-abuse hotlines
  • 15% of all violent crime in the nation is done by intimate partners

This indicates the need to make people aware of the perils of domestic violence without delay. Even more, it indicates the need to equip people to recognize and resist instances of domestic violence, as and when it is happening to them. Martial arts can play a great role in this.

Knowing Domestic Violence and its Consequences
Domestic violence is a broad term that denotes a wide range of abuse and victimization that happens in the private sphere, often between intimate partners. Though everyone might casually know what it is, it is difficult to recognize it when it happens to you or to someone close. That is why these facts matter:
  • Domestic violence can take lethal forms like homicide and rape. However, it may also take other forms - of physical abuse, mental abuse, sexual violence, verbal violence, stalking and harassing to name a few. Even seemingly trivial ones like threat can have lethal consequences for the victim.
  • Though intimate partners are the usual culprits, violence from any family member can be counted and reported as domestic violence.
  • Women and children are statistically more victimized. However, as NCADV reports, men too are victimized in domestic circumstances and can be subject to domestic violence.
It is crucial to know the ways in which violence happens, because it can have drastic aftereffects for the victims and perpetuators. Its consequences range from suicide and depression to stress, trauma, anxiety, neurological disorders, addiction and economic consequences. Impact of domestic violence may last generations as dysfunctional domestic situation pass on negative emotions to kids.

Resisting Domestic Violence through Martial Arts
Fighting domestic violence can be a lot easier with martial arts at your side. Most often, help reaches too late to the victims of domestic violence. Martial arts can prepare the learners to recognize and resist domestic violence before it is too late. With this in mind, many notable martial art schools like Bruce McCorry's Academy focus on martial art lessons that build physical, mental and emotional strength.
  • Martial arts helps learners to be alert to potentially abusive behavior within the domestic sphere.
  • It makes the learners physically capable of resisting abuse. Kids, women, men and seniors can benefit from possessing a self-defense like martial arts.
  • It can teach confidence, self-esteem, courage and dignity. These values come crucial in knowing and resisting domestic violence.
  • As it is a powerful stress-buster, martial arts can help cope up with the mental consequences of domestic violence in past and present.
  • Emotional stability is a great factor of staying strong and resisting. Martial arts teach this.
  • Martial arts can also help the perpetuators of domestic violence, as it will teach them to deal with their own emotional and mental insecurities and treat others with respect.

This October is to teach ourselves to recognize and resist domestic violence whether it happens to us or to those around us . Say no to violence and say yes to life.  
Whether it's Karate, Kung-Fu, Taekwondo, Tai-Chi or Kickboxing, we can personalize a program for you.

If there is one skill that you cannot live without in the modern world, that is self defense. Every day, the news portals bring us so many instances of violence and assault, that we have almost become de-sensitized to the gravity of the issue. However, the stats won’t let us complacently ignore the reality that stares us in the face. To look at some instances from Massachusetts alone,

  • Every year witnesses a minimum of 6000 robberies and thrice the number of assaults
  • Boston alone accounts for 2 million robberies 
  • Four decades since 1970 has witnessed the number of assaults growing from 5000 to 18000


Children, men, women or seniors - no one can believe in the myth of safety and security unless they vouch that they are able to defend themselves in the face of a crisis. That is exactly why we need martial arts in our everyday lives.

Martial Art: The Perfect Art of Self Defense for Everyone
The one true kind of self defense that everyone in a family irrespective of age and gender can learn is martial arts. The wide body of martial art that hails from different corners of the world has two common pillars, which are also the pillars of self defense: physical agility and mental alertness. Therefore martial art can be used as the most effective of self defenses by all:

  • Through regular physical training, it makes the body of the learner stronger and agile
  • It forces you to be sensitive to your environments in such a way that sharpens vigilance
  • Martial arts demand quick perception and this comes handy in self defense
  • The skill of acting instantly – which is the key of self defense – is also the core of martial arts
  • No self defense can happen in the absence of staunch confidence. The positive attitude and self esteem fostered by martial arts can help you to be confident.
  • Finally, becoming courageous through martial arts means not just that you become equipped to defend yourself, but also that you can be of help to your family and loved ones in the face of danger.


Bruce McCorry’s Self Defense Martial Arts: Safety is the Mantra
Bruce McCorry’s Academy is a great place to learn martial arts for self defense, because the visionary programs here recognize that everyone needs self defense, but everyone’s needs are not the same. Therefore, the academy provides self defense lessons to children, teens, adults and seniors in ways which suit their ability and demands.

  • Children’s self defense lessons at the academy focus on teaching kids to defend themselves in contexts such as bullying, unexpected assault, and violence. 
  • The focus of teen martial arts is how to teach teenagers to protect themselves from juvenile crimes, substance abuse, sexual assault, hazing and so on.
  • For adults, both men and women, self defense-oriented martial arts mean equipping them to fight the emergencies they may find themselves in at home, workplace and public spaces.
  • Senior’s martial arts focus on helping seniors to overcome the limitations of their age and stand up for their safety in all circumstances.

All of us value our safety and that of our loved ones. That is exactly why Bruce McCorry’s Martial Arts becomes an unavoidable asset in our everyday lives. Make the choice today.

Fighting Dyslexia through Martial Arts: The Bruce McCorry’s Method

Most of us today are familiar with learning disorders, and dyslexia is perhaps the learning disability that most parents – almost 91% - are aware of.  Even if this is the case, it might come as a shock to at least some of us that one in every five kids runs the chance of being dyslexic. Thanks to the positive awareness efforts going on, today we know that there are many ways to tackle and overcome the challenges posed by learning disorders like dyslexia. According to most experts on educational psychology, martial art tops this list.

Fighting Dyslexia through Martial Arts: A Path to Sure Success
Often, parents hesitate to put dyslexic kids in a co-curricular activity because they tend to spend more than enough time on schoolwork even otherwise, and an extra activity may look like a burden on the outset. However, modern research dismisses such fears. Wisconsin University made a landmark argument in 2010 that children with special needs, including learning disorders like dyslexia can have positive results through martial arts.

This brings us to the question of how exactly can martial arts help dyslexic kids. Though the most overt symptom of dyslexia is difficulty in reading, it has its roots in the complicated functioning of human brain. The useful effect of martial arts becomes relevant in this context:

  •     The primary challenge for a dyslexic child is the difficulty in integrating the activities of the two hemispheres of brain. Movements in martial arts can ease this difficulty.

  •     Once the child gradually learns to cope up with brain co-ordination, symptoms like reading issues reduce considerably though not altogether absent.

  •     Complicated brain functioning may affect physical co-ordination, balance and motor skills in dyslexic kids. Regular training in martial arts can help the child with these.

  •    The ability to cross the midline of their body is often an excruciating task for dyslexic kids. Martial arts teach them to gradually overcome this.

In addition to these visible results, martial arts help dyslexic children indirectly in two major ways.

  •      It helps them to develop useful mental skills such as attention, focus and discipline, which dyslexic kids may find hard to master otherwise

  •       Martial arts improve the day-to-day living and quality of life in dyslexic kids to a great extend as it teaches them to defend themselves, fight bullying and master courage and confidence
Bruce McCorry’s Academy: Martial Arts for Special Needs and Dyslexia at its Best
Can a regular martial art program make an improvement for a dyslexic child? It sure can, but it is never the same as providing unique attention, in a way that a child’s special need and goal does not become lost among hundreds of kids trying to learn ordinary martial arts. It is this realization that led Bruce McCorry’s Academy (Peabody, MA) to develop a Special Needs program, uniquely intended to help kids receive the best of martial arts to fight their specific conditions like dyslexia. At Bruce McCorry’s, kids with learning disabilities get special attention and customized learning experience, but they also get to spend time among kids without learning disabilities so that their experience remains wholesome and positive. You can get the best of both – of special training and the atmosphere of regular schooling – at nowhere but Bruce McCorry’s. 

Let your child discover the genius within through Bruce McCorry’s Martial Arts.

Most of us tend to believe that the foundation of a secure and happy family is the unbreakable bond between partners.
