If you have kids, I highly recommend enrolling your kids in Ancient ways. The staff at Ancient ways are all great if youre struggling during your training. the Instructors will give you one on one time. With you each instructor has their own teaching style, which all leads up to the same Curriculum . The staff are also very nice and the DoJo is always clean . I also recommend Ancient ways because of How peaceful and positive . Meditation also helps a lot to take my mind off, of all the negatives things outside of training. Also the training is very fun, I have gained a lot of life lessons, that will stick with me . Also the code helps a lot because it teaching Respect, and Discipline etc... Overall I highly recommend Ancient ways . Thank you to Master Brown and Mrs. Tanja and the rest of the instructors, for helping me accomplish my goal .

Ancient Ways changed my life and the way I view myself and the rest of the world. Being a martial artist gave me confidence, humility, and patience (along with so much more) in a way that nothing else could have. I am forever grateful for the people I met and the experiences I gained there. Ancient Ways teaches that martial arts is a way of life, and that philosophy will stick with me forever.

You will not find a more personal satisfying experience in martial arts than Ancient Ways. Master Brown injects enthusiasm and confidence in students young and old. He programs a belief system into each student that forces them to trust in themselves and their current and future abilities. It positively affects every aspect of your life. My time with Master Brown is held in the same regards as going to college and starting a career as both benefitted from the philosophical teachings that came from his studio. It's not just weapons and kicking and punching... it's a life confidence tool.

Excellent teaching of Martial Arts. One of the most positive teaching schools I've ever seen. Master Brown's teaching technique is above and beyond. The respect and postivity he teaches shows thru his students from children to adults.
I am very thankful that I found this Martial Arts School. Trust me, I did my homework to find a school that would fit the needs of my son. Ancient Ways is definitely the right choice!

Ancient ways is a very enjoyable and fun place. You have fun as you learn. Now don't get me wrong class can be tough and exhausting at times. However, when you leave you feel energized, refreshed, and feel like a new person. Not only do you gain new skills but you also gain a family. Everyone there is very nice and supportive. For instance, I told Master Brown that I may not be able to sign up for another year since we're planning on purchasing a house. This is his response "Keep me in the loop and if you guys need help, I have an army of people happy to help you move, paint and whatever needs doing" Awesome place 100%

What is your mission?

What is your mission?

We are warriors, knights, Braves and Samurai trapped in the modern world, and like the warriors of the past, we need quests, goals and a solid Mission.

I first heard the word “mission statement” spoken about a big corporation I worked for. The purpose of their mission statement was to give the employees a uniform guideline for their level of service to the customers, build value in their jobs and keep an eye on the bottom line…boring stuff.

I think a mission statement is a great thing to have, but when you work for a large corporation who is going to lay you and your friends off the moment that the bottom line cuts into their golden parachute, it’s a bit hypocritical of them to try to encourage unity and loyalty. To them, I say this…

Hey RISCORP, Teltronics, Southtrust Bank and Retrieval Dynamics, you guys are all dead and gone for a very good reason, you didn’t really think through your philosophy. Instead of expecting devotion and loyalty from your employees, you should have been devoted and loyal to them. You lacked the most important virtue (some of you missed EVERY virtue), Humility. All of these companies were involved in questionable practices, acted all high and mighty, like they couldn’t fail, and they are all gone now, either gobbled up or folded and shredded.

So if these guys are all gone, why am I talking about mission statements? I believe a corporate mission statement should be unnecessary. Corporations should walk the walk so powerfully, they don’t have to talk the talk. I should be so blown away by what they do that I can’t hear what they say.

I feel the same way about people too, but a personal mission statement is a great step in developing an idea of who you are, so that then you can comfortable “walk the walk.” A personal mission statement will have three parts.

  1. What you do
  2. How you do it, and …
  3. Why you do what you do

I think a personal mission statement is an important step in establishing who you are. You needn’t even share it with others. It’s a guideline for you, how you set your goals, treat the people around you, carry through on your operations and accomplish greatness.

A mission statement is different from a vision statement. Once a mission statement is truly defined and tested, it is unchanging, where a vision statement changes based on fluid goals and life changes.

Here is mine:

  1. Influence others by living life of high moral code and guiding them to find their own inner warrior…
  2. Through structured martial arts classes along with a smattering of stories and anecdotes…
  3. To live life in the best way I can and to help my community and my world, one student at a time.

So now that we got that done. What is your personal Mission Statement?
