DramaGuru exists in the moment you decide whether to fight or submit. DramaGuru Revelation is a game I created as a vehicle to teach people how to fight back — verbally (not physically).
Sometimes, people don’t even know they’re under attack. They just end up feeling deflated after a conversation with someone.
That’s why I say, “DramaGuru: Mixed Martial Arts for your mouth”
MMA (mixed martial arts) combines the most effective methods from wrestling, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai (kick-boxing), boxing and, for some competitors, Judo.
For more than five years, I’ve trained in the different components making up MMA. I’ve written about MMA fights for Yahoo! Sports (over 2.7 million views for my posts). I’ve analyzed the fighting game plans of many different MMA fighters.
DramaGuru Objective: interrupt the pattern, change the game
Create a game plan to see danger coming and get two steps ahead — or to get out of range as soon as you can (the “run away” strategy). Create safe space and stand there. When someone shows up and causes an uncomfortable ripple, you’ll be in action to protect and defend yourself.
One day, I decided to apply my physical fighting skills to see if I could analyze a verbal battle. Being able to distinguish how you fight, where you’re strong and where you need more work is the only way to make improvements — and to win more verbal battles.
But first, you have to discover the holes in your game
That’s why I created this game called DramaGuru Revelation
When you get into an argument or a debate, you’re trying to force your point of view on another person. Whether you’re aware of it or not, your emotional and physical response feel very similar to preparing for a physical fight.
