Yes, this holds true for more than Jujistu.
#11 - Yes, I know throwing kicks may feel weird. As your body figures it out, it'll get better. Just keep going.
#10 - Sorry, no, I don't really care what you took before or for how long. Yes, I'll recognize your rank when you come but I expect that you'll work on everything from the beginning because mine IS different from what you've already done.
#9 - Doing the same thing over and over IS boring but unless you are striving to make every technique better every time you perform it, you are wasting time...mine and yours.
#8 - The only way to get good at anything is to put in the work.
#7 - This happens when people THINK they know the technique but are really still just out of control and not paying attention.
#6 - YES! ASK questions (relevant to class). This helps illustrate that you are developing an understanding of the material and gives some idea when you can have new material given to you.
#5 - Well, even if we don't currently have day jobs...we probably should because we barely make enough money to pay our bills.
#4 - This one shows up mostly when students THINK they know how to do techniques that are beyond their rank. Some can do pretty well because of their athleticism but when you don't truly know what you're doing you and others can get hurt. Plus, being disrespectful is huge!
#3 - This one is huge! I know I got caught up in, even recently. If you are the student, be the student! If asked to teach (work with a student or group), then teach. Otherwise, be the best teacher by being the best example of technique and student.
#2 - If you think you're BAD, you're not. Also, don't let your training get you carried away to become disrespectful in class. You might be a great person but attitude/ego could cause issues in class...and get you reminded of what you've forgotten.
#1 - I never stop learning. Students teach me new things or perspectives about training and technique every night.

I tried three times to write something wise to help deepen the understanding of what is presented here. I stopped after I remembered being told that I talk too much. I will leave everyone with this though – It isn’t … Continue reading →

Introduction
"When you stop watching Saturday morning cartoons, you're old."

I was born & raised in Chisholm, MN. I attended Chisholm Senior High school, Hibbing Community College & the University of Wisconsin - Superior. Finished with a Bachelor's in PE with a Health minor. Went back to Hibbing Tech in the Summer of 1989 and finished the Law Enforcement program. After testing for 3 years, I decided to stay in the security field and teaching martial arts.

Started training in Taekwondo in 1981 and haven't looked back. Currently a 6th Dan black belt. 

Added Aikido to my training in 1990 while in Duluth/Superior. Currently a Nidan. 

Started Haidong Gumdo (Korean sword) in 2003 and have been having a blast with it.
