  • Martial Arts and Bullying: How training Can Help

    Two summers ago, my daughter, entering 6th grade, had just completed her first school year in person after the lockdown. Virtual schooling during 4th grade, with masks, quarantine, and anxiety, made for a challenging adjustment. It was hard to anticipate the social climate and middle school dynamics after such tumultuous years. Despite her challenges with Tourette's Syndrome and ADHD, she was timid, kind, and compassionate. Middle school terrified her, as she'd heard alarming tales of bullying and conflicts. Our martial arts training had been sporadic over the years. I never wanted to impose my passion on her, allowing her to frolic freely until she realized she needed more. Training Jiu ....

    Diet is a crucial aspect of everyday life, yet navigating the sea of information can be overwhelming. From calorie counts to macronutrient ratios, the abundance of conflicting advice can leave you feeling lost. Amidst the chaos, it's easy to feel tempted to ditch food altogether or cereal for dinner. Many factors contribute to this confusion, including media influence and trends within the fitness industry. Whether it's an athlete endorsing a particular cereal or a health magazine promoting extreme eating habits, the noise can be deafening. However, amidst this cacophony, one thing remains clear: tailoring your diet to your activity levels and goals is essential for recovery, muscle growth, ....

  • Healing Through Movement: Martial Arts as Therapy

    The idea that physical exercise is therapeutic is nothing new. We've all heard the saying, 'No one who leaves the gym says they wished they didn't go.' Most of us have experienced the release of a good workout, where our troubles seem to melt away in equal measure to the sweat dripping off our faces. It's hump day today, and midweek is usually where stress starts to accumulate, where the clock seems to move slower and the calendar becomes an enemy. What better way to relieve some of that stress than with some high-kicking productivity and positivity? There is no denying that martial arts are beneficial for the body. Combat sports athletes are among the best conditioned and most ....

  • Benefits of martial arts for children

    Today, let's talk about something near and dear to our hearts: the future—our children. They are our most precious cargo and have the potential to achieve what we never could. We all want the best for our kids, and we also want them to be well-equipped to overcome adversity. While we might wish the world were all sunshine and rainbows, it isn’t. Sending our children out into the world unprepared would be a disservice. Their first encounter with morning traffic could be a minor challenge, but far more concerning are situations like their first altercation or an encounter with someone who means them harm. Experiencing the instability of society can be traumatizing. This ....

  • The Family that kicks together...Martial arts for families

    The family that kicks together... stays together? No, not that. The family that kicks together... fights together? Well, kind of. The family that kicks together... communicates with each other in a respectful manner and supports one another in a life of constructive discipline and success? That's the one! Maintaining the family unit is absolutely paramount to the foundation of a household. A family that engages in activities together, where both adults and children participate, forges a bond that is nearly unbreakable. In this day and age, there is a huge disconnect between parents and their children. Often, both parents are working, someone else is raising the children during the day, and ....

  • Fitness through fighting: Using Martial Arts to improve Physical Health

    To be a warrior was once a way of life. Conditioning was not an option; it was mandatory for defending your village and home or acquiring resources.

  • The Importance of Respect and Humility in the Martial Arts

    What are the Foundational Values of Martial Arts? Respect and humility hands down. They are core principles taught in every martial arts discipline. Cultivating these characteristics has always been extremely important in the growth and development of any child's upbringing. It can be the difference between the success and failure in any social interaction. From business transactions, social exchanges, and even more so in personal relationships. Having these as the base of someone's character keeps their moral compass pointing north, their integrity intact, and will foster strong bonds in any social setting they happen to be a part of. In the current settings though, there seems to be a ....

  • The Future of Martial Arts: Trends and Predictions

    I have been an avid participant in martial arts since I was a child. Over the years, I have seen it evolve, devolve, and sometimes warp into an amazing amalgamation of beautiful pageantry and mutual violence. There was always something very real about standing toe to toe with someone, agreeing to try and hurt each other, and then sharing a shake and a hug, or a fist bump. But as the arts have grown, so have its many faces. The future of what martial arts will look like, along with its close relative in combat sports, is uncertain. As we look at the current trends, can we predict what comes next? Can we lay out a plan for the future? Can we train in such a fashion to anticipate and adapt to ....

  • Encourage Growth Discussions with Children

    Promoting Growth Mindset: Growth discussions emphasize the idea that abilities and intelligence can be developed through dedication and hard work. This contrasts with a fixed mindset, which suggests that traits are innate and unchangeable. By fostering a growth mindset, children are more likely to embrace challenges, persist in the face of setbacks, and see effort as a path to mastery. Building Resilience: Growth discussions teach children to view failures and mistakes as opportunities for learning and growth rather than as indicators of incompetence. This resilience is crucial for navigating life's challenges and setbacks with confidence and determination. Fostering Self-Awareness: ....
