Things that scare us:
and some more nice kicks...
some posts about construction on I-25 between Los Lunas and Belen; and information on an easy bypass:
Mr. Davis, this made me think of you!

An interesting side-effect of the pandemic is I've discovered lots of phone meetings + bluetooth headset = plenty of time for nunchuck practice in my front room. I'm almost at a point where I can do a modified cane kata with 'chucks.

And this is how you make your personal kata really stand out.
In this time when none of us can train in the Dojo, I want to give a special shout-out to Ruth Allen; Ruth, your perseverance to train on your own has always impressed me, but now it blows me away!!! At least I have an empty (unfinished) room:

Before he passed we did the entire system. This outtake is one of many that show the joy he shared. "We grew up together" is something he would say to me. He meant worldly understanding, and it is true that we watched each other through easy times and stuck it out through the tough times. Many lessons learned. Life is harder out of the ring, and sitting in the "seat of controversy" has been worth every minute.

A sad day in history. I remember when Jameson called and asked if I had heard the news, then said I should sit down. Anthony Williams was in class. I will never forget that moment.

An ounce of preparation is worth a pound of cure. RESOLUTE TO BLACK BELT EXCELLENCE!

RESOLUTE! Black Belt test is underway.

07/22/2021

I am so excited for the weekend. This week we will see 37 new black belt promotions in Socorro, NM. What an opportunity for learning deeper meanings of martial arts. The candidates have had to look inside themselves, beyond the glory of promotion, beyond the accolades, and with new obstacles there have been chances for new perspectives. So here are some quotes from The Book of Five Rings. They have a simple wisdom in them and they express Musashi's advice after many different instructions throughout the book. Too often we intellectualize an instruction and confuse short term analytical understanding with the hard work we must demand from ourselves to truly make genuine progress. The lockdown has given time to reflect on things like "repetition brings new layers of understanding" and "deeper meanings" to our movements. He repeats his message so clearly and we have only to act on it with diligence.
Musashi on swordsmanship:
"With detailed practice you should be able to understand it."
"You must train repetitively." "You must research this well." "You must appreciate this." "For this it is necessary to train well." "You must study this deeply." "You must consider this deeply." "If you are negligent you will miss the timing. Research this well."
"With detailed practice you should be able to understand it."
Your spirit must be resolute.

In the blink of an eye a year has passed and we are still here and better at what we do because of sharing common bonds between uncommon people.

I hope to see you at our test in Socorro this Saturday night. Doors open at 6pm. Show starts at 6:30 pm. Resolute! to Black Belt Excellence!

07/17/2021

Reminder: We will be closed next Friday and Saturday due to the Black Belt test. The test is at NM Tech in Socorro. Hope to see you there. Doors open Saturday night at 6pm and we will start the promotion ceremony at 6:30.

Congratulations to all the students in our Think Summer Program at Albuquerque Academy. Today they past their belt test, and demonstrated the best in karate postures: Courtesy, Honesty, Respect, and Discipline. They have been wonderful to work with and put in so much effort. I am really proud of them. Watching their parents and grandparents smile at their work ethic made me especially happy. Congrats to each and everyone of you!!!

"RESOLUTE" to Black Belt Excellence!
We have been busy getting ready for our upcoming Black Belt test weekend in Socorro, NM. The weekend of July 23, 24, 25 promises to be a highly energized weekend. Having to wait throughout the pandemic and covid restrictions have been difficult to say the least.
But we have pretty much all stuck it out and the test is finally here, almost!
I must say that I am so proud of everyone demonstrating the patience of a true Black Belt and digging a little deeper on your practices to reach higher levels of refinement. This will also be one of our biggest tests in a long time as a consequence of waiting for an extra year. No one is worse for the wait, and everyone is better in their skills! It will truly be an amazing weekend.
I want to thank you for your patience around the entirety of the situation. That has meant a lot to me, thank you.
Remember the Saturday show is open to the public, and doors open at 6:00pm. Keep up the good work and be resolute in all you do.....always. It is the martial way.
