What is important?

What is important?

Articles
At times we seem to lose our ways and worry about that which we don't have, yet we forget to appreciate what is important in our lives. What is important for me is my family so I treasure every minute I'm around them. We could be sitting down doing nothing or simply eating breakfast. Yet this is important and I treasure every second. Helping others, staying healthy and learning is also important to me, hence, I teach martial arts. The best part of this is that my students teach me, challenge me to grow and help me stay in shape. Yet, I'm a simple person that enjoy watching the stars, listening to music and simply sitting down to read a book. In other words, I recognize that what is important…

The Real Martial Arts

The Real Martial Arts

Articles
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…

Nails In The Fence

Nails In The Fence

Articles
There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence. The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence. Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold…

Pokemon Go – “the good and the bad”

Pokemon Go – “the good and the bad”

Articles
Amazing and incredible are words I will use to describe the phenomenon of Pokemon Go.  They are still playing with the Beta version and the growth is amazing.  So far there hasn't been a place where I walk in and people don't know about this game.  But like with everything there is good and bad. The good comes from the basis of the game which makes you get out of the house, socialize, talk and walk.  By itself this is great as technology was making us into an antisocial/dysfunctional community.  I was seen more couch potatoes and wordless conversations between people sitting across each other.  Now with Pokemon Go I see people in public places talking with one another and sharing information.  From the clinical standpoint is almost like a…
