  • Instructors, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    Martial Arts Instructors, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly In all of my years as a martial arts student, competitor, instructor, and school owner, I’ve had a variety of martial arts instructors personally, not to mention the hundreds more I’ve met and observed. I had a fencing instructor once who could literally be the brother of some wacky cartoon character. He was goofy, energetic, at times VERY bizarre. He was normally very happy with a freakishly woodpecker style of laugh, but with occasional bouts of frustration and anger at our inability to be as good as him. For the most part, he was like a weird older uncle, trying to teach us sword fighting. You couldn’t ....

    No One Gets Out Alive

    We are born… We have a series of experiences that we interpret as good, bad or otherwise, Then we die. In a few generations there will be no one alive who will remember us, no one who misses us, and very shortly after that, no one will even visit our grave. That’s the thing about life, no one gets out alive. Keeping this in mind, here are some questions for you,
    What is the point of spending any of the time we have left living in fear? Fear of Failure, of anything?
    What is the point of interpreting experiences you had as “Bad” instead of seeing them as learning experiences?
    What is the point of not relentlessly creating the ....

    Adult Martial Artists - Finding Your Dojo

    I taught a really high energy adult class the other night, like most nights. It is not uncommon for people to come to me afterwards and thank me, as well as compliment me on the great class. I am always honored by their kindness and am grateful to them. Many people just kind of stick around after class, like they don’t want to leave, which is fine. Some use the after class time to practice on their own or together. Some visit and chat with each other and it isn’t uncommon for me to leave and still see people, standing in the parking lot, having long conversations. Some people take a moment each night to see if there is anything new in our library. Some just sit and relax. ....

    Accidental Apathy and the Dangers to the Development of Your Child.

    Accidental Apathy and the Dangers to the Development of Your Child. I knew a family once who had a horribly behaved preschool child. He would open the door to their house and leave it open just to get a reaction from his parents. They would close it and lock it, and he would just do it again. He laughed as he ran up to turn off the television as the adults were watching it, just to get a reaction. Once it was back on, he would do it again, and again. He abused the family pet, threw food around, broke things and was just terribly behaved. These are just some of the examples, and all of them, he would do repeatedly. You may ask, why he kept doing it after his parents punished ....

    $22.84 per week

    $22.84 per week for Martial Arts Training. Some years ago, I had one lady at an elementary school’s back to school night stop to tell me she had heard great things about our school, but that she couldn’t afford it. Now, we hear this a lot and it’s funny to me the stuff people will pay outrageous amounts of money on, but won’t spend a measly $22.84 per week to give their children … Self defense skills to protect themselves no matter where they go in life A higher level of physical fitness and an awareness of how to stay fit and eat right Lifelong confidence that will show in everything they do, from school, ....
