Is it time to change your paradigm?

Is it time to change your paradigm? It was for me.
As I mature in age and (hopefully) gain in wisdom, I continue to look deeply at my old paradigms to see if they still serve me. Many have not, and over the past few decades, I have been replacing them with better ones. Here is a partial list:

How to think about and teach self defense

If you own a martial arts school, want/intend to own one, or work in one in any capacity, I offer you this unsolicited advice and attempt at inspiration:
When you teach people your brand of martial arts, whether it originated with this country or that one, whether it was handed down by warriors or poets or housewives, whether it involves circles or lines, groundfighting or knife play, and/or is a recognized Olympic sport or airs on pay-per-view or only comes to be in the most violent of situations when you teach people what you know or think you know, youre in the business of empowering people to stretch their limits. Youre in the business of yes, I think I can. Youre in the business of cultivating health and, maybe, sanity through movement, through intentional movement, through participating with a teacher, with being a student, with collaboration, and more often than not, with a community of people who, in one way or many ways, encourages you to pursue something you dont presently have.
When you teach, you cultivate participation, re-thinking, exploration, community, belief in oneself, compassion for the struggle, and most of all, you help yourself through the art of helping others. When you teach, sometimes, youre one of just a small handful of people, may the ONLY person, who stops, looks, and listens intently to the desires and dreams of another person and that moment may be fleeting, but it can sometimes be one of those VERY important moments the kind that inspires, changes, encourages, and gets someone from where they are to where they want to be. You a

A young girl's journey towards achieving her orange belt in martial arts



FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS, MARTIAL ARTS HAVE BEEN USED TO NOT JUST TEACH KIDS SELF-DEFENSE... but to teach them powerful skills that they'll use for their entire lives.
Respect, focus, concentration, and discipline are just a few of these skills. These help children at home, in school, and eventually - out in the real world. Help your child develop these amazing traits today by enrolling them into a local martial art school.
We at martialinfo.com are very concerned with the well being and education of our children. We understand that younger students may have shorter attention span. Martial Arts offers unique children's program uses interesting and enjoyable methods to keep the student's attention and teach our young students skills that they can use for life. We promote non-violent resolutions to conflict. Martial Art methods help children explore and understand conflict through role-play and other exercises.
More than any other sport, Karate gives our children the chance to explore their innate powers. Marvel as they increase in strength, flexibility, endurance, balance, and harmony. This is only the start. Physical skills act as a foundation for something much more important: the development of value skills, both mental and spiritual.
