  • A Word on Competitions

    Thought I'd share my two cents on competitions today:
    In truth, I am not in favour of forcing people to compete to progress through the ranks. That being said, competitions can bring a lot to your development as a martial artist and as a person. Some say that win or lose, you learn as much from a 5 minute round as you would from 3 months of training. Speaking from personal experience, competing has helped me deepen my understanding of the martial arts I practice. I do recommend competing at least occasionally, for several reasons, a few being:
    Learn to perform and apply your skills under pressure.
    Basically, both you and your opponent are there to win, no one wants to lose and just that ....

  • Passion - Martial Arts, Life & Choosing the Road Less Travelled

    This is what passion means to us:

    We love martial arts. We love doing it, training it, watching it, talking about it, thinking about it.
    We love how it’s helped us and shaped us but most of all we love sharing it and inspiring others. And we strive to ignite that passion in the people we share it with so that one day roles are reversed and we are learning from and being inspired by them. The world around us is built in a way that encourages conformity, that celebrates us if we fit ourselves into a box that is defined by what other people think we should be. We all do it. We lay out our own expectations of how everyone else should be and we in turn succumb to the pressure of ....

  • Martial Arts & Personal Growth: Understanding Violence

    One thing I often get asked by parents wanting to sign up their kids in our kids Jiu Jitsu program is whether or not it’s going to teach them some kind of self control. Often, even if they’ve heard about the benefits, they have some kind of doubt about enrolling their kids in something that will teach them to kick and punch and throw and grapple.

    The fear is that it will promote violent behaviour in their kid.
    It’s always been hard for me to answer that question. Although martial arts has helped me in many ways, I am not someone that leans towards violence in general and have never been, hence, I have never needed to control that in myself. It was self evident to me that ....
