Martial Arts

Martial arts are extensive systems of codified practices and traditions of combat that are practiced for a variety of reasons, including self-defense, competition, physical health and fitness, as well as mental, physical and spiritual development.

The self-Confidence Factor: How to do away with Bullying: I believe that the key for our children to defend themselves against bullying is to learn how to gain self-confidence. How do they acquire self-confidence? A guaranteed way to become self-confident is by learning Marital Arts! Not only do they learn how to defend themselves in a dangerous situation, they will also know how to defuse a threatening encounter with Bullies and project confidence. This is a crucial step in take the power away from the bullies. If your child is a potential bully, he/she will learn about self-control, self-discipline and how to find inner peace. I had the honor to meet World Champion and United International Kung Fu Hall of Fame inductee Sifu Romain (Master Karl Romain), who has been studying and training in Kung Fu for 34 years. One of his top priorities is to train young people in all these skills through Martial Arts. He is the owner and master instructor of the Edgewater Kung Fu Academy in Edgewater, NJ and founder .. ...

So as many of you may be aware.I am obsessed with Martial Arts. Doesn't matter what style or culture etc and I must at all times be a student of something. I'm going to get my Instructor's Certification in Krav Maga (IKMA) this time. Krav Maga is the martial system taught to the Israeli military and is considered to be a very effective survival method. I am, however.terrified that this 'intensive' training is going to resemble exercise. The instructor of the course told me I would be allowed at least 10-15 minutes for lunch every day; so how bad could it be? Wish me luck.

A Rant . This is from a Blog I will start in the near future . Sometimes I look out into the Martial Arts world and it leaves me shaking my head. I just don't get it! What happened to spirit, to etiquette, to wanting to do the Art above all this fighting for fighting sake? If I could take you if only for an hour and show you something, something that is by far light years ahead of what you currently do. If I could show you a better way forward why wouldn't you throw off the slippers and dressing gown of your comfort and give it a go??? Another thing I don't get is those who are so comfortable in their arts that they have stopped looking and blindly swallow the same old tired crap and line of spin that they have been fed for years. They prefer comfort, to sticking with what they know and not what they could know. They have an almost pathological fear of looking outside what they do ... fearful that it may somehow cause them to (God forbid!) change their views and therefore their training! Or is it simply t ...

Dear Puff the Magic RED DRAGON, A.K.A Bobby, As of a year and half ago, we mutually parted ways, for reasons that up to today I have keep between us, (oh, and the Board of Education,... oh and the NYPD) Prior to parting ways, I excepted you unconditionally with respect and an open friendship and even allowed you to teach your brand of Martial Arts at my school, this of course was prior to me finding out about your horrific pass and disturbing present day actions, You requested on many occasions for me to be your "Top Student", which I had respectfully refused prior to finally accepting a 4th Dan promotion by you. (which by the way, I NO LONGER acknowledge that rank status under you due to ethical sense and moral compass from my part) The reasons for me accepting at that time was because my instruct suffered a Heart Attack and relocated to the state of WI, but you already know that. The chain of events that unfolded that lead to your departure from my Dojo is a follows: `I was hospitalized and recovering f ...

My brother, Shihan Reed Noss, just received a special honor outside of the Martial Arts: A new species of grasshopper discovered by Entomologist Dr. JoVonn Hill at Mississippi State University was published today in the Transactions of the American Entomological Society: Melanoplus nossi, "named in honor of Dr. Reed Noss, for his efforts in the field of Conservation Biology, particularly for his work with endangered habitats of the southeastern United States."
Traditional vs. Modern approaches to the Martial Arts by Ken Reinstein "...it has been estimated that more than 500,000 Americans are currently registering for lessons in the various Martial Arts each year. The majority of these clubs and schools teach only fighting and self-defense techniques, and our data reveals that this type of training enhances the negative personality traits of people who are already delinquent... Traditional martial art philosophy places great emphasis on respect for others, humility, confidence, responsibility, honesty, perseverance, and honor. This philosophy is an integral part of traditional Martial Arts training sessions." (Excerpt from Michael E. Trulson, 'Martial Arts Training: A Novel 'Cure' for Juvenile Delinquency,' Human Relations, Vol. 39, No. 12.) The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly The Martial Arts show perfectly how notions of "new and modern" are not always better. Traditional Martial Arts training always places principles of morality, virtue, peace, and goodness above ...

| Living in 1980's and 1990's Some kids liked "Transformers" and others liked "He-Man". He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is cool by the way, but I do not think He-Man would like it if I said I was fond of "Skeletor". There was "Batman" and "Beetlejuice" and "Thundercats" and "GI JOE" and "X-MEN" and even "Swamp Thing". These are great things, to this very day, but "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" is timeless and classic at the same time. Martial Arts and science fiction was always a good combination for a story. I lived in a good time as a child... ...I really never left childhood. :)

I have received a letter from Isabel Hospice stating they have received a total of £3185.15 from the proceeds of Guan Yu International Academy of Martial Arts' charity event "Journey of the Monkey King". I cannot thank Bob and Joanne Fermor enough for their herculean efforts in producing and directing a most magnificent show. I am also grateful to all of Bob's students who put enormous amounts of their time and effort in order to make this charity event take place. I also wish to thank all of you who supported the show and therefore supported the vital work of the hospice. The show was performed in memory of Jeremy Sherman who was looked after so well by the staff at Isabel Hospice in the last days of his life.

Know your Artist : Chuck Norris Norris first made his mark as a renowned teacher of martial arts and was a six-time undefeated World Professional Middle Weight Karate Champion. He is the first man from the Western Hemisphere in the over 4,500 year tradition of Tae Kwon Do to be awarded an eighth degree Black Belt Grand Master ranking. By the 1970’s he had revolutionized Martial Arts in the U.S. and created his own system called Chun Kuk Do (meaning “The Universal Way”) and is the Founder and Chairman of the United Fighting Arts Federation. Modeling a life of health and fitness for more than five decades, Norris has promoted the importance of exercise by his endorsement of the Total Gym, a popular exercise machine that is sold internationally in more than 80 countries.

WELCOME TO "KEEPFIT-Kuntaw Kids" fb page!!! The concept and ideas in creating this group page aims to promote the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Sports and Physical Fitness Program for Martial Arts, and to rediscover, revive and propagate the Filipino indigenous tradition and other artistic endeavors. First, I would like to thank Celine, the Dubai Police Department of Sports Affair who inspired me, whose insight into the KEEPFIT mission has been invaluable to me, and for their tireless exploration of healthy lifestyle. I would also like to extend a special thanks to Kuntaw parents for their encouragement, to my children & the Kuntaw Kidz for their enthusiasm, patience, training and untiring support to this project. Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout this developing period. I would not have been able to do this without your precious support. May the Angel bring you peace, ideas, insights, and inspiration!
Why Every Parent Should Have Their Child Learn Martial Arts Here is Sacramento and at Satori Academy NJ, we are trying to send out a clear message to our community as to why every child should learn Martial Arts. This concept is nothing new; we have all been doing this in one way or another for our whole careers. The difference for us is that we have never been quite as deliberate in our efforts as we are now. I believe that every child should learn Martial Arts and you probably do too. There is no doubt about the fact that we as a profession have already made great progress in making martial arts more acceptable in the main stream but we still have a long way to go. Imagine what would happen to our industry if we could gather together with the following universal battle cry? So if you feel compelled to, please join me in sharing this message with everyone who will listen. If you like, please use all or part the following essay in any way you see fit. We will all benefit from each other’s effort, I pro ...

When I first started training in the United States I was lucky enough to meet and train with the greats of Firearms and Use of Force instructors, the Guru's. The likes of Gary Klugiewicz, Jim Lindell, Buck Savage, Massad Ayoob, Larry Smith, Ray Chapman, Bob Lindsay, Roland Oulette, Pat Martin, George Thompson, and a host of other instructors most I'm still good friends with today. All had a background in the Martial Arts, boxing, wrestling. Everyone of them without fail have always said and still say today " take what you like and use it in training and pass it on, however the only thing I ask is give credit where credit is due" In other words nominate where you got it from, give that person the credit they deserve, I always have. Every course that I've run I've always given that credit. I gave credit to all those Instructors who supplied the information and who trained me. Two years ago whilst on a firearms re qualification course the Instructor asked if I could give him any notes I had on Handgun and .. ...

Rener Gracie gave its opinion on a possible career in MMA for CM Punk, here's what he said: " With the little time he’s had with me spread out over so many years, he’s made remarkable progress. There’s no telling how successful he would be if he devoted himself full time to the training...He can go get some fights, knock some fools out and choke some dudes...If he dedicates himself full time, there is no limit, he has the intangibles. " For a long time CM Punk trains in Martial Arts (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai).

Published on Dec 15, 2013 Tom Laughlin, the iconic star of the "Billy Jack" film franchise, has died at the age of 82 from complications with pneumonia. Tom Laughlin was a maverick filmmaker, a skillful actor, a true original, a one-of-a-kind personality. The "Billy Jack" films changed my life. "Billy Jack" taught me how to be a better person, how to be non-violent in a violent world, that our government did not always tell the truth. The "Billy Jack" movies exposed me for the first time to the plight of the Native Indians in America, to what happened at My Lai, to the power of Martial Arts. "Billy Jack" was the first time I heard the Lord's Prayer ever spoken. Tom Laughlin's films changed not only me, but a generation of young people fresh from the ravages of the Vietnam War and Watergate. The "Billy Jack" movies spoke to the counter-culture's disillusionment with authoritarian oppressors. Tom Laughlin's movies gave us a direction and something - someone - to believe in. Mythic and heroic, Billy Jack sto ...

Yes, I was one that thought the F***ed up thing youths are doing called "The Knockout Game" would not get to my home town, but I was wrong. Seriously, as a Parent, someone that brings life into this world it's your responsibility to teach your kids right from wrong, and to respect others. It's because of this "It's not my problem" attitude that has started the downfall of the American Society. As someone that has been trained in Martial Arts, extensive firearms training and practice, and my want to live, I want to pass this message along to the Youth of America: If you partake in the F***ed up "Knockout Game" not only should you be charged as an adult in the violent crime that you have committed, but you had better make sure that the person you are attacking is not one of the following types of people: 1) Undercover Law Enforcement, or Ex-Law Enforcement officers 2) Ex-Military (we will not hesitate to fight back or strike first if you try to sneak up on one of us), we also usually have permits to carry . ...

The history of Martial Arts is shrouded in mystery, legend and secrecy. It is generally believed that the first ever form of a martial art was created over 1000 years ago by a monk named Bodhidharma. He was the founder of Zen Buddhism, and eventually took his teachings to China. He travelled to the Shoalin Temple where he began teaching the monks that resided there. At first they were physically unable to keep up with his teachings, and so Bodhidharma devised a training system to develop the monks both physically and spiritually. The Shaolin Monks became known as the best fighters in China and the system by which they were taught became known as Shaolin boxing. The Shaolin Monks travelled from China to spread the word of Bodhidharma and his fighting system. Zen was readily accepted in Japan. One of the most devout followers of the Buddhist religion was Sho Shin. His father was King Sho En, ruler of Okinawa, and Sho Shin became King at the age of just 13 in 1477. Due to his devout religious beliefs, on of ...

Deep Breathing is a Great way to relax itself. Deep Breathing is a Great way to relax the body and get everything into synchrony. Relaxation Breathing is an important part of Yoga and Martial Arts for this reason. Lie on your back. Slowly Relax your body. Begin to inhale slowly through your nose if possible.

Martial Arts the best sport in Middle East and a high standard of morals always what a pleasure for years and years
Families Grow Stronger at Martial Arts Brisbane One of our Core Values at Factor10 is "Family and Belonging is Everything" and this is also a very strong principle of the Martial Arts generally. The concept of family is at the core of the all we do in Martial Arts because first and foremost the study of this modern and ancient art is about the person, their personal development and the development of excellence in a close nit community or family. It is understood in Martial Arts that unless one pursues this Martial excellence in the family environment it will be doomed to failure, for being part of the family martial system is what nurtures this to fruition. The secular age old concept of family is about being from the same kinship as another person, and this is where the concept of family becomes so uniquely evident in Martial Arts than in any other sport. Indeed at Factor10 our kinship is clearly evident as our roots date back a long way, far beyond the time when Master Damien O'Flaherty started his f . ...

Afternoon guys, hope you all enjoyed the busy classes last night. Just to ask for your help… we are aware that the car park can become overwhelmed at times and that any overflow goes on to the road outside the gated area. Many of the local businesses work office hours and are closed in the evening. However please be aware that the Martial Arts centre across the road operates similar hours to those of RMF. So if the main car park is full, then please can we ask you not park in front of it. Thanks for your co-operation with this matter. Team RMF

Latest Amazon review from Ravi Warrier Leadership by Virtue is a book that took me by surprise. It's a story wrapped around the ideologies of leadership, corporate challenges and measuring up, wrapped around the teaching of Chinese philosophies stemming from Daoism, Confucianism and Martial Arts. Written as a chronological story, the books takes us into the life of the protagonist, Ben Young, a newly appointed CEO working his way amid the pressures of adjusting to his new role, that of the responsibilities placed upon him and trying to correlate his experiences from his martial arts training coupled with some wise guidance from his mentor. There are some truly remarkable gems to pick from this book and Jaro has poured (it is evident), his passion, his knowledge and wisdom into this book that is, dare I say, written in the styles of E. Goldratt with hues of Patrick Lencioni. The book grips you for pages together and pushes you towards understanding the hidden principles of martial arts (all is not just cho ...

Improving your physical existence requires equal parts flexibility and strength. Teach muscles to absorb force while they get longer before requiring them to generate force with a contraction. This is the idea with "negatives" in resistance training, but I am talking about whole body movements here. Squats, Founders, Handstands, Bridges, Cartwheels, Lunges, Windmills, Pull Ups, Rock Climbing, Monkey Bars, Push Ups, Planks of all kinds, Yoga, Pilates, Feldenkrais, Planche, Parcour, Dancing (well), Ido Portal method, Gymnastics, Trapeze, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Martial Arts of all kinds, Belly dancing, Walking, Hiking, Running... There are options, feel free to add to the list. Teach the body to absorb its own weight well and it will help you progress in everything else quickly.
2013 ends, and 2014 begins. Thank you to all of my students, parents, families, and my Martial Arts friends for all you support. Blessing to you All. Don Edwards, Debbie Edwards Samuel Harris

But then there is so many that most never heard of or don't think about like Gordon Lui, Sammo Hung, Bolo Yeung, I could go on for days.

On December 12, 2013: For my long standing service and contribution to the Martial Arts, I posthumously received the highest honor awarded by the Commonwealth of Kentucky in that of being given the high rank of Kentucky Colonel. Though I have never sought fame or recognition from the practice of the Martial Arts, It has always been a labor of love. The vibrant state of health, self control and *** near superhuman abilities (wink, wink ) was certainly reward enough. But I must say to be recongnized for my work in this area feels really good. And to be forever linked with other Kentucky Colonels such as Colonel Harland Sanders, Muhammad Ali, George Clooney will always be a great source of pride. At this time I wish to give thanks to Governor Steve Bashear, Secretary of State Alison Lundergren Grimes, and special thanks to State Reprsentative Jim Stewart III for nominating me for the award.

Unfortunately , many instructors believe to be the Master of Martial Arts is to have 2 feet tall , 120 KG . weight , from baseball bats , insult , offend and attack other instructors and other organizations ( showing not have character , personality , or ethical - moral values ) . Ueshiba , Kano , Funakoshi , Yamaguchi , Mabuni , Otsuka , Egami , and many others were not so, not taught this way! However , verily , there are no living masters that can be compared with these examples , as human beings and as true masters . On the other hand there are some kids who claim to be masters , but by their behavior , that they are Pseudo Masters . The greatest of all these kids, who spend their lives slagging the other instructors and other organizations , is Rob Pepels . Life goes on to say that the others are False , ...

10 Ways to Win Over your Grappler Friend. By Valerie Worthington Contributor - Martial Arts, Educational Psychology I’ve heard it said that anyone who trains long enough to earn a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is bat-guano crazy. So, imagine how nutso the brown, black, and red belts are. People who grapple frequently let their training take over larger and larger proportions of their lives, as grappling becomes for them more of a life philosophy than a hobby. Given this tendency toward preoccupation - and, dare I say, obsession - the layperson might find him/herself confused about how to interact with a grappler, particularly one s/he knows and loves. Below are 10 ways to make sure your relationship with your grappler stays happy and relatively sane. karate chop hands, annoying martial arts people, karate hands1. Don’t karate chop your hands in the air at an invisible opponent. Grapplers get cranky when people who don’t understand grappling try to chop them, because, with apologies to Dana Carv ...

NOTE: There were others who obviously studied Martial Arts abroad during the time when Korea was under Japanese Colonial rule. These men would go onto eventually play roles in Hapkido and Yudo, but played no significant direct part in Taekwon-Do’s development. Hence we do not make mention of them here. We encourage readers to conduct additional research if that area has some interest for them. We do feel it appropriate to mention GM Ki Whang Kim. He did study Karate in Japan and did teach Martial Arts when he relocated back to Korea after the occupation ended. However his influence in Korea was limited, but he played a major role with furthering the advancement of Taekwon-Do in America after it was more established. We also respectfully request that readers submit additional information that may help supplement and better credit those deserving of recognition to us!
