Takai Mine Martial Arts


A little something to think about. I got this from a teacher friend of mine who got this from a teacher friend of his a couple of weeks ago. What if??? ❤️❤️❤️ If they cancel the rest of the school year, students would miss 2.5 months of education. Many people are concerned about students falling behind because of this. Yes, they may fall behind when it comes to classroom education... But what if...❤️❤️❤️ What if instead of falling “behind", this group of kids are ADVANCED because of this? Hear me out...❤️❤️❤️ What if they have more empathy, they enjoy family connection, they can be more creative and entertain themselves, they love to read, they love to express themselves in writing. ❤️❤️❤️ What if they enjoy the simple things, like their own backyard and sitting near a window in the quiet. ❤️❤️❤️ What if they notice the birds and the dates the different flowers emerge, and the calming renewal of a gentle rain shower? ❤️❤️❤️ What if this generation are the ones to learn to cook, organize their space, do their laundry, and keep a well run home? ❤️❤️❤️ What if they learn to stretch a dollar and to live with less? ❤️❤️❤️ What if they learn to plan shopping trips and meals at home. ❤️❤️❤️ What if they learn the value of eating together as a family and finding the good to share in the small delights of the everyday? ❤️❤️❤️ What if they are the ones to place great value on our teachers and educational professionals, librarians, public servants and the previously invisible essential support workers like truck drivers, grocers, cashiers, custodians, logistics, and health care workers and their supporting staff, just to name a few of the millions taking care of us right now while we are sheltered in place? ❤️❤️❤️ What if among these children, a great leader emerges who had the benefit of a slower pace and a simpler life to truly learn what really matters in this life?❤️❤️ What if they are AHEAD? ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Wish some strong FEMALE would do a demonstration at the monthly GALLUP NM art crawl (hint hint)

Evening, wondering what is the best class to observe for Adult Karate Class? My background has been in Aikido, Karate, Muay Thai, Boxing and MMA. Thanks, Juan Ortiz

Takai Mine Karate/Tae Kwon Do, teaches four styles of martial arts: Tae Kwon Do(WTF) , Shorin-Ryu, and Shotokan Karate and Escrima. Rank is earned in the three hard line styles simultaneously and rank is available for escrima as well. Even though competition is not the main focus at TMK/TKD, many students are nationally ranked competitors. Each year we compete at the AAU National Youth and Adult TKD Championships.

Something to think about !

Steve Jobs dies a billionaire, with a fortune of $7 billion, at the age of 56 from pancreatic cancer, and here are some of his last words... 👇👇👇

“In other eyes, my life is the essence of success, but aside from work, I have a little joy. And in the end, wealth is just a fact of life to which I am accustomed.”

“At this moment, lying on the bed, sick and remembering all my life, I realize that all my recognition and wealth that I have is meaningless in the face of imminent death. You can hire someone to drive a car for you, make money for you – but you can not rent someone to carry the disease for you. One can find material things, but there is one thing that can not be found when it is lost – “LIFE”. ❤️

Treat yourself well, and cherish others. As we get older we are smarter, and we slowly realize that the watch is worth $30 or $300 – both of which show the same time. Whether we carry a purse worth $30 or $300 – the amount of money in the wallets are the same. Whether we drive a car worth $150,000, or a car worth $30,000 – the road and distance are the same, we reach the same destination. If we drink a bottle worth $300 or wine worth $10 – the “stroller” will be the same. If the house we live in is 300 square meters, or 3000 square meters – the loneliness is the same.”

“Your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world. 🌍 Whether you’re flying first class, or economy class – if the plane crashes, you crash with it.”

So, I hope you understand that when you have friends or someone to talk to – this is true happiness! ✅

💥 Five Undeniable Facts 💥

1️⃣ Do not educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be happy. – So when they grow up they will know the
value of things, not the price.

2️⃣ Eat your food as medicine, otherwise you will need to eat your medicine as food.

3️⃣ Whoever loves you will never leave you, even if he has 100 reasons to give up. He will always find one reason to hold on.

4️⃣ There is a big difference between being human and human being.

5️⃣ If you want to go fast – go alone! But if you want to go far – go together.

And in conclusion... 👇

👨‍⚕️ The six best doctors in the world 👩‍⚕️

1️⃣ Sunlight
2️⃣ Rest
3️⃣ Exercise
4️⃣ Diet
5️⃣ Self-confidence
6️⃣ Friends

Keep them in all stages of life and enjoy a healthy life. 😊

Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.

Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends...

Treat yourself well. Cherish others. 🎉

“Love the people God sent you, one day He’ll need them back.”

🙏🙏 🙏 Something worth sharing!!! 💯‼️

AAU Taekwondo

IMPORTANT MESSAGE from the AAU National Chair, GM Bobby Stone in regards to the 2020 AAU TKD Nationals!

First, I hope that you and your family are all staying healthy and that you are able to continue to find ways to train and stay connected to your home dojang.

The past six weeks have been full of trying times and uncertainty. Not only for us as individuals, but particularly for the small business owners who make up the fabric of our taekwondo community. To this end, I must announce that nationals (which was supposed to take place July 5th -11th in Las Vegas) must be postponed.

However, a 16th century poet once said, “I am too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.”

So, while this news is without question, disappointing to everyone in the AAU Taekwondo family, I am also proud to announce that we have secured new dates and a location for this year. Read Entire News Story Click Link - https://bit.ly/2XSN6JM

4 Big Benefits to Continue Martial Arts Training during COVID-19

Great Article !

Derobio Preservation Society

Great grandmaster showing some staff technique .

This clip (early 80's) is from when we were at Larry's garage in Pearl City. I was white shirt and had been training in Derobio for a few years years. Someone had brought a few different length staff's to class and Master Pedoy told me to attack him. Notice how he slips his hand into the open area behind my hand so he can gain control of the weapon by tying my hands up. We do a couple of strikes and responses and the clip stops. What is not seen is on the next strike I go a bit faster and he anchors down and turns it into and arm bar and nearly pops my elbow out of joint. You can hear it on the video and the maestros and the master both check to see if I am OK. I can testify, even though Master Pedoy was small sized, 5-3 and maybe 125 lbs but when he applied leverage especially using a longer weapon I can tell you something (one of the branches) will break. (video capture by DPS).

Happy Easter to everyone . We miss all of you. Have a great day with your family .

Great Escrima class this morning ! Everyone did great !
