Many people today view martial arts solely in terms of fighting physical combat. This view usually takes The context of the octagon or in the cage. But this is only a very small aspect of what martial arts really is all about.

Martial arts is about making yourself better than you were in the previous days. It's about a healthy mindset, better physical condition and even improved spiritual being.

In Japan, many executives study Bushido and they study the book of five rings. Martial arts are about finding balance, developing mindfulness, patience and control. These attributes are not just limited to the dojo. They are applicable to both your personal and work life.

Many businessmen lack these attributes, they suffer from anxiety, hypertension, weight issues and more. Martial arts training is a holistic approach to addressing all these issues and bringing balance to your life.

Coastal Virginia Karate Is now offering a new program for businessmen and women designed specifically to create new habits that bring balance to your life through martial arts. This is much more than learning how to punch and kick. This is mentorship. This is accountability. This is aiming for a better version of you over a period of time.

We're offering this course free to 10 local business people with a 6-month karate membership! Why the membership to become a better you? We want you to Make a decision to commit to 6 months of training 3 hours a week. This works out to be roughly 72 hours of training time or just under 11 per hour ($750 for 6 months)

Here are the requirements:

- Independent contractor
- Team Manager
- Business owner
- willing to be open to construct a criticism
- willing to commit to doing what Is asked of you without questions.

If it sounds like a commitment you can stick to with accountability Private message to be considered.


Ditch the "work-life balance" myth!

Focusing on balance implies work is half the equation. Instead, your ideal job should fuel your desired lifestyle, not consume it. Work should fit seamlessly into your life, not be the entirety of it.


While most martial art schools pay lip service to teaching discipline Coastal Virginia Karate ( Cova Karate ) has developed a coaching / mentoring program for business leaders, manager, sale reps specifically to develop new habits and discipline.

We are currently offering the Mentorship training to 10 local business people FREE, with your commitment to 12 months of martial arts training. But we don't want you to feel pressured in joining, so we will also give you 4 free classes so you can make an informed and logical decision!

To be considered for the program, send an email to [email protected] and provide your contact information so we can get you on the schedule!


This ....

You work 8 hours to live 4.
You work 5 days to enjoy 2.
You work 8 hours to eat in 15 minutes.
You work 8 hours to sleep 6
You work all year just to take a week or two vacation.
You work all your life to retire in old age.
And watch only your last breaths.
Eventually, you realize that life is nothing but a parody of yourself practicing your own oblivion.
We have become so accustomed to material and social slavery that we no longer see the chains..⛓️
Life is a short trip,
Live it up.

What is self discipline?

"The ability to do what you have to do when you have to do it, whether you feel like it or not."


Discipline is the bridge between thought and
accomplishment the bridge between inspiration and value achievement the bridge between necessity.
-Jim Rohn


Kyoshi David Colaizzi explaining the mechanics behind flowing movements.


No one makes you feel anything, everything you feel is determined by how you choose to react to a situation.


We are all controlled by our habits. SOME are good others are not beneficial. KARATE helps you learn to identify habits that aren't beneficial and to replace them with beneficial habits.


These 18 things all require Discipline, none of these are easy. Karate doesn't teach Discipline, it shows you how to develop it!


Many martial arts schools speak to creating or teaching Discipline . Discipline can not be taught like one teaches an abstract concept like lifting weights, or running through Kata. It is a personal commitment to do something for themselves regardless of the tempo price that they pay.

Attending karate class, following directions and jumping to orders is not discipline. Showing up daily regardless of how you feel, knowing that you are working towards something better.

Discipline is the silent power that drives our perseverance to be more than Average, to be more than the best of the worst (mediocre).


Karate works on the brain through
Neuroplasticity, this the ability of the brain's neural networks to change through growth and reorganization. These changes occur due to learning complex Kata.


Karate is incomplete, and contains gaps, it can only be fully understood when the lessons of Kobudo are plugged into those gaps. Kobudo therefore is the key that unlocks further understanding .


Our lives are nothing more than the habits we have created, and we aren't even aware of them.

Karate helps us identify habits that are holding us back through mindful self-reflection

What is a habit:

"A habit is when you have done something so many times that your body knows how to do it better than your mind."
