What does it mean to be a Martial Artist?  I am sure it means different things to different people, this is what it means to me…

… being the best human being I can be, strong in body, mind and spirit, growing stronger and wiser each day…

… admitting to my mistakes and shortcomings and then learning from these errors of judgement. Passing on this knowledge to all those who will listen, and even then some who won’t…

… helping to protect those who are unable or just unknowing how to protect themselves…

… learning to protect myself from those who may wish to harm me or my community…
