Bored is an excuse..
It’s an easy  way to blame others  for your personal  weakness providing  a reason to quit. Take responsibility for  not having the grit to persevere & succeed.
The word “bored” is a cop out & should be banned!

Number 1 fallacy

I will pull my child out from martial arts to study!

I cannot tell you how many times I have heard this over the years  and its flawed on so many levels.

It will give  them more time to focus ?
Absolutely not!
Your child is not going to study  from the moment they get home to the time they go to bed. They will not study  all weekend either.

They will be less tired?
Energy  builds energy.
Fitter people are not only stronger they are more focused and mentally tougher.

Age no limit

The power of martial  arts is just amazing …

My oldest  student to test for black was 69, niw a 2nd degree we call him Super Mario and is well into his 70’s.

On the other end how young is too young?

Mikalya appeared on national tv and there is no one more confident  and motivated tgan this young girl..
Check out the YouTube  clip where she performed  without hesitation.

All children have amazing potential , all they need is the opportunity!

Agree to Disagree

Be it marriage  equality, climate  change, coal fire  power stations , immigration to name just a few  topics of enormous debate currently..

My hope is with this and with any discussion though  that friendships  are not based on everyone  agreeing all of the time.
It would  be terribly  sad if we get to the stage no one one comments and no one  opens any discussion  in fear of disagreeing.

Agree or disagree  we are so very fortunate  to live in an amazing  country  where everyone has every right to disagree within  the boundaries  of the law  without fear of being  ostracised or even physically  being beaten …

Food  for thought…
Wishing everyone  peace & respect…even if I may not  agree with you  lol

God  bless

#1 Fallacy – Parents take note

#1 Fallacy
Pulling your kids out of martial  arts will give them  more time  to focus on study and school?

As well  intentioned parents maybe  this  is the biggest single mistake any parent could make without a doubt!

It’s well documented  the benefits of good exercise…martial arts takes that exercise to another level developing habits for  life such as Focus, Discipline  and the “will” to succeed!
Yes  they need to “harden” up.
Do you not think  your child  needs these attributes  to succeed academically?

Over 37 years  I have zero doubt they do  as the best students  in martial arts all became great students  in study..its No coincidence

A good martial arts school is part of your child’s  study  success formula

Whats my motivation?

My motivation?
If you are motivated solely by money you are in the wrong business!

I worked 4 jobs for 12 years to ensure my family are ok and I can enjoy my martial arts guilt free and ensure there is never any money pressures at the school. I never wanted to look at students as $$$$$

For the first 6 years of me running my own school I did not see a single cent..more often than not I paid the rent out of my own pocket and even got a loan on behalf of my instructor…I did all that I could for him as a loyal student.

I never want or expect that for my students and have always offered to pay.

Yes I do want more students and that’s not because I want more money but simply because after 34 years I love & believe in what I do!

I had someone say to me the other day they have made a lot of blackbelts for me….wow
Firstly you got paid and getting a black belt is all about the student not me, am I wrong?

Money is important but not more important than people ..
Not more important than loyalty and friendships!

Maybe I am just old school but I believe it’s good school. ..I will make sure everyone that teaches for me is in the same school not just physically but mentally.

My passion is to teach and help..always was and always will be….

Sadly more and more people want to open martial arts schools with the number 1 motivation being $$$.

It should be a passion to teach and change lives by producing amazing martial arts students and as a consequence of doing a great job the money comes…

Yes the money comes well after not before! 

Martial Arts For Life

Valuing Older people

 ” I raised 4 kids in one room.  Today My children now have 4 houses but do not have a room for me “
                               Translated the message is clear. ..more respect for our elders is needed.

Have times changed the value of elders , the value of family?

It’s why I love the martial arts as Respect & Loyalty to family are not only taught but promoted first and foremost.

I just dont’ see schools teaching such values and as such the role martial arts schools play in everyday loves is becoming more &  more important

Everyone wants to beat the Champion

For every champion there is someone training to dethrone you….
I as many am still in shock Rousey lost but this girl did not just appear out of no where! 
I am still a Rousey fan and am sure she will soon be preparing to do what was done to her, the challenge of competitive sport is beautiful and will bring out the very best for us to marvel and enjoy.
Check out the video and we can all only image the work that went into getting into the cage let alone winning

Sick Extremists

Everyone at UFC193 stood up for a minute silence in support of Paris. …sick extremists do not represent any religion or people, they have no place in our society and will never win.

Ronda Rousey

I love the competitive sport.  of MMA… ..
I may not like the result always though but thats as the say is the challenge of this and any sport.
One thing for certain the nasty side of people comes out the moment someone is beat or down.
Disappointing aspect of what sadly has become the norm of modern life, for me the disgraceful
comments written by so many and the so called funny Memes are a reflection of the lack of values
and certainly for mine mean one thing ;
   No Class!
