We all want to grow in the martial arts by improving our skill and our abilities to protect ourselves and others.  However, there is much more to growth in the martial arts than just your skill level...

Technique is important; in most respects this is the foundation of hte training that martial arts entails.  Without technique, everything can quickly fall apart.

This article continues to explore the question “What does a ‘Dan’ REALLY Mean?”.  While from style to style there is no one easy answer, and even in same schools within the same martial arts system this fact persists, individual small systems may be analyzed in regards to this fact.  This article aims to explore the meaning behind Dan ranks 6-10 in the Nemuru system of karate.

Whether you refer to them as Dans, Degrees, Ranks, or some other term, most systems of martial arts, whether Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Indonesian, English, or any other nationality, contain ranks beyond black belt or its stylistic equivalent.  However, what do these really mean in the grand scheme of things?  This artcile will explore that first 5 Dans of the Nemuru karate system.

I've been around the martial arts for a long time so I've seen a lot of different marketing tactics to attract students. The things I see most advertised, in many ways are no indication of the kind of instructor you might get. Marketing ploys I see most include master instructors, championships, certifications, whom they have trained with, and how many black belts they have. If you think about it, those points really say nothing about an instructor's ability to teach.

nobulliesBullying is a terrible act and unfortunately it has brought attention to the Rochester area recently. This recent incident has made it clear that no one is immune to it and it doesn't just happen to kids.

We need to use this as a teaching moment for everyone. If we witness such an act and do nothing then we become a victim of it as well. We have a choice at that moment - stand up for the person directly or get someone that can. That doesn't mean that we resort to violence. After all that is not what we train for - physical altercation as the absolute last resort.

Sportmanship is mentioned often in athletic competition and many times in non athletic situations. One of things I am most proud up is how those I have coached and taught exhibit "good" sportsmanship. That is so true after the most recent American International Karate Championships.

Several students competed for the very first time. No wants to win more than I do and no one wants to see my students win more than I do. The most important thing is that you compete honorably and respectfully regardles of whether you win or lose. Honestly, if you perform and give your best than there is no losing, especially if you are determined to do better the next time.

One of the most common questions instructors get asked by students relates to increasing kicking height.  While flexibility of the kicking muscles is important, there is so much more to be concerned with.

The martial arts are an excellent activity that all people can enjoy, assuming that they find both a training system or style and instructor that they can associate with.  The fact that these activities can be enjoyed by countless people worldwide is evidenced by the large number of schools, tournaments, systems, styles, and practitioners.  However, there is something to be said about the lifestyle of martial arts versus the business side of martial arts.

Sometimes, it is he or she that we do not expect that will bring something to mind and make us truly think.  The example here is a reflection on a specific point that was brought up at last night's class in relation to the word of the week - perseverance.
