    On Martial Arts Etiquette

    Bow with gratitude and sincerity. Bowing to others is not about a sign of submission but about recognizing “the spark” in another fellow human being. Practicing etiquette teaches us to be mindful – from making sure we are lining up straight to bowing correctly and at the appropriate times (even when tired). It is all designed to teach us to pay attention – to keep that “bright mind”. Once ritual becomes habit it is useless. The point is to practice it mindfully. Seniors set the example for juniors. Juniors will watch what seniors do and follow suit. The senior student has a responsibility to set a good example. Vincent Busuttil Shihan. ....

    The Philosophy Behind the Martial Arts

    One of the most priceless gifts of martial arts practice is to get to know yourself internally and externally. Our main goal is to use the body to reach and learn to master the mind. Once you have mastered your mind you will have no desire to ever fight. “The years teach us much the days never knew” Ralph Waldo Emerson In real martial arts, even when faced with the situation, you can stay calm and centered and make the best choices in that moment. Martial arts training helps us learn to deal with adversity. That is what sets it apart from doing things like yoga. Through the practice we become aware of what we think and why. What shapes our values and beliefs, then we ....

    I wanna to Quit!!!

    I WANNA QUIT!
    Author: Robyn J.A. Silverman Nobody likes to admit that it's happening to them. High quit ratios are the proverbial thorn in our
    Sometimes it feels like our entire student population is leaving our school in droves. Somebody lock the back door! Retention is one of the most common concerns among all professional school owners. As a school owner myself, I have gone through the same frustrations as countless others. We put our hearts and souls into each student who joins our school. Many become like family. Then one day, they move on or, worse yet, they quit prematurely. Haven’t we all had those students who are a wink ....

    Don't be soft, you love your kids & it's why we don't let them Quit!

    What would you like to do this year? The question that parents ask when they may not realise the long term benefit of martial arts training for their kids. Don't be soft, you love your kids & it's why we don't let them Quit! They certainly do not know what's best for them but YOU do Hi Mum’s and Dad’s, Please take the time to read this email, as the message is very important and won't take too long. We are currently in that period where kids commence new sports and activities for the year and are looking to “try something new”.

    IT DOES NOT MATTER



    Be The Nice Kid
    I was very motivated by reading the following message and created a poster for my school along with 5x7 postcard prints that I hand out to all my students. Enjoy

    3 Reasons Karate is the World’s Best Martial Art By Jesse Enkamp

    “Which martial art is the best?” It’s an age-old debate. Desktop warriors, fighters, scholars and martial geeks have debated the topic for centuries – never coming to a real conclusion on what martial art is the “best”.
    Why? Because the question is fundamentally flawed. See, it depends on how you define ‘best’. Best for *what*?
    Competition? Self-defense? Physical training? Warfare? Weight loss? The answer will vary according to several factors; including your goals, physical potential, availability and mindset. In my opinion, the best martial art is theone you love to do.
    No matter what it’s called. ....

    The Abundance Mentality…

    The Abundance Mentality… As we continue the topic of success, this segment is the key to understanding why some people become successful and some don’t. It’s important to have an abundance mentality. An abundance mentality says that there is plenty for everyone. The success of one person doesn’t mean others must suffer. Yet, many live a life of struggling. Some coast in a comfort zone, worried about the present and future, or possibly feel the threat of failure. If we asked these people that weren’t performing as well as they would like, I’m sure they’d have plenty of reasons.Reasons like: it’s hard out there right now, ....
