Columbus DOJO - 沖縄五首館空手 全米本部道場

Martial artists will always train.

We have this logo on our vehicles, water bottles, and shirts; what does it mean?
This is how I feel about it.
Yoda said it very well.
Do or do not, there is no try.

Martial Artists will always train.
When life, work, school, prevents us from going to the dojo - martial artists still train.

When we are tired, poor, hungry - these are just tests of character, we still train.

When we are frustrated, bored, or angry at ourselves - we still train.

When we are sick or injured, we rest - than we return to training.

Martial Artists do not get bored and decide to try something else.
Martial Artists do not get frustrated with their progress and quit.

Martial Arts is not seasonal. It is not a manner of convenience. Martial Artists train, study, research and hone our skills continuously. We take breaks and we rest when we are unable to train, then we continue.
Martial Artists value their teachers and seniors as their guides and mentors on the path to self improvement.
We realise that we are not alone on this path. Many have gone before us; many will come after us on this path.

Some will stray or leave the path, we will persevere.
The way of Budo is to continue training, continue searching, and continue progressing, no matter what twists and turns life brings.

Many will train for a time. Some will try martial arts for a season. Martial Artists will train for life.

Memes to Discuss in Therapy


Support your instructors. They’ve given up a lot to provide knowledge for you. Don’t give up on them now.

This is a truly heartbreaking photo...

A man who has spent years building a mixed martial arts facility, toiling hard... day in, day out just to stay above water in order to pass on his knowledge, forced to close his doors.

I fear there will be so much more of this happening in the months ahead.

When are people going to realise how ridiculous this current policy is, and the massive effect it'll have for so many years ahead?


How are you increasing student engagement during these times of distance learning?


Just Sock Thoughts

I don't know if this is true.
But I am seriously up for engagement/wedding swords ⚔️

Who would be interested in an online carenza roundtable? We could show our favorite combinations and what works for us with the hope of picking up a couple new flows and ideas and then wrap up with a virtual sayaw.


Only the finest science was used to determine efficacy of this CDC resource


Support your instructors. Work solo skills we often let slide. Come together via technology. Weather the storm. Be safe. Be healthy. Be prepared.


If you work in gear, train in gear every now and again. You might be surprised at how it changes your motion.


Zombies would be great right about now.

Are Karambits Legal in the United States?

Yes, karambits are legal in the U.S. for possession, sale, and carry, although they are regulated in a handful of states. However, if you carry a karambit that looks and functions like a simple, average-sized pocket knife, you'll be just fine anywhere in the country.

(NOTE: This isn't legal advice. Contact an attorney if you need clarification on your local knife laws.)

blog.karambit.com With karambit knives cropping up everywhere from martial arts seminars to weapons magazines to official tactical combatives curriculums, these curved blades have pushed their way to the forefront of the knife world. They're also appearing more and more regularly in video games, TV shows, and movies....

It's my happy place, 'tis true.


Core curriculum overview

Worked on organizing the FCS curriculum to make it easier to get an overview. The base FCS skills are grouped by weapon and each skill has its own separate breakdown of the requirements, techniques, and how-to. It's a long document, but if you're interested in a copy, just message.


Pretty much every instructor I've ever had should have this warning label on a shirt.


That’s what she said!
