Winston Churchill said, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts.”  Often, a little reminder when it seems nothing is going our way can lift our spirits.

Let’s take a moment to remind ourselves, who we are.

Martial Arts is a way of life!  It’s the way we live our lives on a daily basis that counts.

The past many days have been as unusually as I’ve seen in my lifetime and I understand it can feel they are just going on. But it doesn’t change the premise. Everyday is a new opportunity.

As Martial Artists its incumbent on us to seize every opportunity. Even if it is not the opportunity we had hoped for.

This is the WAY. … this is the underlying doctrine that binds all the different styles to a common thread. The Martial Arts is a process for the mastery of self. You don’t get to choose the day. That’s outside of our control. I am asking you to seize control of yourself and your actions.

Start now!  Double down on your resolve to take action this summer. Let’s find a way together!
