    When is the last time you woke up excited for your day?


    When is the last time you woke up excited for your day?
    I mean, really excited, like the sun is not up yet and you’re jumping out of your bed because you can’t wait to do what you have planned to do today. Not because you have to or should but just because you really want to live your day - excited. I used to think that the grind was a necessity and that misery was the only way to grow. Happy and present is what I’ll feel when I’ve achieved and reached what I’ve set to accomplish for the day, the week, the month, the year. Boy was I wrong!The race never ends! Our nature is to want to grow. It’s natural for our minds to look for the next step on the ....

    Confidence Building School Workshops


    Martial arts is our passion and we believe that it is truly a great vessel to help children learn valuable life skills. Low confidence and the issues that arise from it are a top concern for so many children in today's schools.
    We are constantly hearing about bullying, social issues, peer pressures - and although overcoming these challenges is a great undertaking, we know that the solution always starts from within. It starts with self worth, empowerment, and respect, all of which are intrinsically taught through martial arts. Every journey starts with a single step. If we can spark a little light inside each child and empower them to know that they have a voice, and that that voice ....

    Who are Your Kids Emulating?


    We learn by emulating. That's why they say that you can know someone by the people they surround themselves with.
    This is even more true for kids. They're like sponges for all the information that comes through their senses. Especially up until age 7, when they haven't fully developed their reasoning skills yet and have no way to filter the bad from the good information. So they take it all in, they internalize it and through repetitive exposure, eventually they become what they see and hear everyday. So let's ask ourselves - who are our kids spending the most time with? Who's actions are they imitating? Who's values are they internalizing? Obviously parents and siblings have a ....

    Are You Living Intentionally?


    Here is a thought for this new year: How much time are you wasting on things that don't mean anything to you and keep you away from the meaningful experiences?
    This is a major question for us at home right now. We live a more or less simple life but this question made us realize how much time and energy we're still wasting on things that don't add value to our lives. And so in the last few months, we've been making an effort to live intentionally. Minimize the waste and the unwanted and really align our wants with our needs. Easier said than done, it takes focus and patience because status quo is so much easier. This is not the first time we've attempted this but so far this time ....
