When I meet with new students, especially school-age children, they tell me they ‘want to learn how to fight and defend themselves’. Whether the influence is Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, the Teenage Mutant Turtles, or the Power Rangers, the initial goal of becoming a Martial Artist is the physicality of it all.

To me being a Black Belt and a Martial Artist is so much more. It is my passion...it is what gets me out of bed each morning...it is the “why” of my whole being.

But the children just want the Black Belt....
