Striking Distance: Bruce Lee and the Dawn of Martial Arts in America

Here is an article I put together on the legacy of Ralph Castro, in the wake of his passing early last week.

And for what it's worth, I seriously don't understand why the big Bay Area publications routinely sleep on the passing of local figures like Castro, Wong Jack Man, Wally Jay and many others over the past few years.

The Bay Area really needs to acknowledge and lay claim to its legacy as an important and pioneering location during the formative days of martial arts culture in America.

With great sadness I have to share Great Grandmaster Ralph Castro passes away this morning. My family’s thoughts and prayers are with his family and the Shaolin Kenpo family. He will be greatly missed.

It is good to aspire to greater knowledge and ability, and that is measured in belt rank. But achieving a black belt is just one step in that life-long process. Achieving it doesn't mean you have arrived. Now you have a solid grasp of the basics and are truly ready to understand your art. Keep training.

Ending our last class for 2018 with a black belt class. 🥋👊💪🦅
We wish everyone a happy new year!
We hope to see you in 2019! May the new year be prosperous for us all!

[11/10/18]   Last night was our surprise promotions. The students were excited to hear they passed their test, but not so excited to find out they had 20 minutes to practice for an impromptu demonstration for their parents. However, they all pulled it off successfully.

Congratulations to our students for their hard work. May your determination continue and push you to a future you could not imagine.

[06/16/18]   Thank you Kathy at KB Fitness for opening your facilities to us, providing equipment, and supporting us. It was a sad last day at KB Fitness, but we are grateful. We wish you and the KB Family the best at your new location.

As for Eagle Flies Low, we are currently looking for a new facility for us to continue to carry out our classes and training. Please be sure that we will continue to soar and train dispite not having a current facility. Students and families have received an e-mail regarding our current and temporary class training locations.

If you are interested in classes, please feel free to contact us and we will provide you with our temporary location.

Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience.

[04/12/18]   There will be class this Friday. We hope to see you all there. Enjoy the rest of your week and remember to practice. 👊💪

[04/09/18]   Due to most of our students being away for spring break, we will not be having class tonight. Sorry for the inconvenience of the late notice. We hope you enjoy a safe and fun spring break. Students, please practice your belt material. We will see you on Friday!

Thank you Tallah for being our junior instructor for the evening as Sibok finished belt testing students. You are a strong, kind, intelligent and a talented role model. We are lucky to have you as our junior instructor.
The kids enjoyed the sparring class with instructor Tallah.

We are very proud of our fierce ladies!
It was their first tournament. They competed in the first-timers' division. Our girls were strong, fast, snapped all their kicks and punches, and had solid stances.
When assessing their scores Neela would have tied for first place in her division and Elena would have gotten second in her division.
Congratulations girls. We are proud of you and hope you are too!

In the spirit of Valentine's Day, we had our annual "love hurts sparring night." All the students came out with heavy punches and fast snap kicks. It was a great work out.
Happy Valentine's Day!

For the past few weeks, our students have been practicing long hours for our in-house tournament. For many of the students, it was their first exposure to the tournament atmosphere, and they did not let their nerves get the best of them. All our students showed huge progress from their first day of practice. The spectators and judges were impressed with the power and speed executed by the competitors. Congratulations to all our competitors. We are very proud of all competitors!
It was a great way to kick off the martial arts tournament season. Perhaps we will see some students competing around the bay this 2018.

Another fun Friday night class. Sifu introduced kali stick drills to the students.

While they may be a little sweaty, their smiles say they enjoyed a great sparring workout.

Today, Sifu Ostrowski had fun getting the students to practice their jumping kicks. It was a great bonding time for the kids.
