    Posted by Century Martial Arts Products on their website, with unreadable font and terrible contrast. Reposted here because it’s very good. If you’re the parent of a child enrolled in martial arts lessons, you definitely want your child to succeed on their training journey. However, some parents don’t realize just how important their encouragement is to a child’s success. They may also not know how they can show support in ways that will be genuinely helpful. Encouragement can come in the form of simply watching your child’s training, or even participating in parent-and-child martial arts classes. If you have a young martial artist in ....

  • 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.

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. ....
