I was looking this morning for ideas for our December marketing campaign. I looked into photos, different campaigns and quite a lot of propaganda.  At the end of the day I was extremely disappointed as all I could find out was about the ability to fight and in a way be able to beat others. I know that we teach punching, kicking and fighting but there is so much more about the martial arts that we makes us what we are and I think we are losing. The martial arts I know is a family where we care for each other. It is, to quote some of my students, a happy place where you can feel safe. This is a place where we teach about self-confidence, leadership, balance and even…

Water aerobics would make more sense; or maybe even yoga, so why choose one of the “hardest” of hard martial arts, known for its powerful, and sometimes aerial, kicks? The short answer is that it was accidental. My 11-year-old son wanted to give it a try, so I brought him in to Koryo Do School of Tae Kwon Do for a try out class because it was the closest to our house. I took a seat, intending to relax while I watched my son work up a seat. I only got to sit for about five minutes before being invited to join in and learn some simple self-defense moves.

Have you ever considered martial arts as one of your resolutions of the year?  Lots of individuals have incorrect assumption about martial arts such as: I'm too old for that, that stuff is for kids alone and even the I'm afraid I'll get hurt.  However in my book the true martial artist is not the one that hurts others but the one that seeks to improve himself/herself.  So far my adult students have lost weight, gain balance, improve their conditioning and even learn how to defend themselves without having to kick or punch someone.

I have been going around for hours now thinking about this topic.  Amazingly enough the inspiration for this paper was based on the amount of violence our society is experiencing.  In the last couple of weeks we have seen stabbings at schools and hospitals, shootings and violence just about everywhere.  I have also been touch by families mourning their dear ones and hoping they would have done something different.  I don’t know what I will do if I lost any of my kids as they are my life and joy. I think about what I can do and remember that for the last thirty plus years I have been teaching martial arts.  Not the martial arts where you do flashy kicks and go thru the belts as if they were…
