They Call Me Master

They Call Me Master

Articles
[caption id="attachment_469" align="alignleft" width="300"] taekwondo master testing[/caption] They call me Master, yet as I look at my students I wonder. Some of my students are much faster than me; yet they still call me Master. Many, by far are already more flexible than me and dare I say stronger; yet they still call me Master.  Quite a few could easily beat me in a competition; yet they call me Master.  Their progress executing forms and using weapons is nothing but an expression of art, each one an artist in its own way; yet they call me master. But what is a master may I ask?  I did dare to ask this question to two of my senior students and was pleased with the answer, or the lack of as neither…

Excelence in the Martial Arts

Excelence in the Martial Arts

Articles
A good friend of mine send me an article from a blog titled "The difference between commitment and technique".  I read this short article and was impressed by its message.  I also was fascinated as in a very succinct manner Mr. Godin Presented an issue which it seems is more common that I thought. [caption id="attachment_714" align="alignright" width="300"] safe and challenging learning environment[/caption] As Mr. Godin wrote:  "We spend way too much time teaching people technique. Teaching people to be good at flute, or C++ or soccer.   It's a waste because the fact is, most people can learn to be good at something, if they only choose to be, if they choose to make the leap and put in the effort and deal with the failure and the frustration and…

How to Choose a Martial Arts School

How to Choose a Martial Arts School

Articles
This is a question that I don’t get too often but that I try to answer every time I receive a call of a potential new student.  Of course most callers start the conversation with; how much do you charge?  This is understandable as most people don’t understand the difference between the martial arts so they try to compare them based on a measure they understand: money.  However if at any time the phrase of comparing apples to oranges ever fit in a situation this [caption id="attachment_688" align="alignright" width="300"] Picking the right school for me[/caption] is it. First, let me emphasize that not all martial arts are the same.  To help people understand I normally start with the basic category of “hard” versus “soft” .  In other words, schools that…

What is a Black Belt

What is a Black Belt

Articles
With the proliferation of black belts in the market a simple thought came to my mind.  What is a black belt? I actually have potential students and parents that simply ask questions such as: how long does it take to be a black belt?  How much will it cost?  However, no one asked about what is a black belt so here it is. A black belt is a piece of cloth used to hold together the top of our work out clothes.  This particular piece of cloth does not award special powers to its user.  If anything, the tear and wear of the same is nothing but a record of hard work, sweat, tears and sometimes injuries that we attain thru our martial arts’s journey. From a different point of…
