(MAR 17) Sometimes we think we
know what a fighter is all about. We watch them train, we see them
fight, and we know their record. Do we understand who they are and
why they do what they do? Probably not. However, we watched Lucia
Rijker progress through the ranks, almost effortlessly. When her
punch was measured for power against a male counterpart, Lucia
displayed nearly 200lbs more power than the other boxer. How did
that happen? Where did that power come from?
What does Lucia Rijker know that we don’t? I recently had the
opportunity to discover a little bit more about the Rijker
Striker method of instruction. There is plenty about Lucia that
we will never really know, but what I did learn is that Rijker
is an expert on Rijker. She knows who she is, and she knows who
you are, that is, if she is working with you. She takes some
time to understand who you are and what it will take to instruct
you. She is intuitive. She understands the mission and carries
it out impeccably.
Lucia has expectations, of
herself and her student. She knows her game and she knows life.
There is a depth to Lucia Rijker that you would most likely miss
if you did not grasp a moment to observe her teach. Teaching
comes natural to her. Lucia can convey a message, an
instruction, and a lesson in a barely audible voice and have it
resonate through your mind like the bang of a drum. It is a
remarkable thing to observe.
So, where does the power come from? It is an amazing surge of
energy that flows from within the mind, through the spirit,
causing an explosion of the body directed to the hands and
delivered precisely to the intended target.
Lucia Rijker knows exactly what it means to channel the mind,
body and spirit into a force of power balanced with skill and
technique. An opportunity to train with her would be a blessing
for any fighter looking to fill a void in standard training. I
was impressed. What Lucia Rijker knows, we all should know.
