    World Book Day, Readers are Leaders

    This week is World Book Day on Thursday. Kyoshi wanted me to remind you of the importance of reading. As you know, reading early helps you build independence and self-confidence.

I want to encourage you to read a little and often to get your imagination going and increase your vocabulary. Here’s your instructor favourites.

  • How to be more Mindful

    How to be more Mindful

    Reminding yourself to take notice of your thoughts, feelings, body sensations and the world around you is the first step to mindfulness. Notice the everyday
    "Even as we go about our daily lives, we can notice the sensations of things, the food we eat, the air moving past the body as we walk," says Professor Williams. "All this may sound very small, but it has huge power to interrupt the 'autopilot' mode we often engage day to day, and to give us new perspectives on life." Keep it regular
    It can be helpful to pick a regular time – the morning journey to work or a walk at lunchtime – during which you decide to be aware of the sensations created by the world around you. ....

  • Encoragement, You can do it

    Encoragement, You can do it

    Sometimes a little encouragement can be just what you need to keep going. Martial arts training requires your dedication to persevere even when you don't think you can continue on, or maybe a challenging life event seems to want to stop you attending class regularly. 1: The first step is to recognise that it's a challenging time for you. 2: Next, set a schedule to guard your training time. Don't let anything get in the way. Remember this is "you" time. You are a better person after each workout, physically and mentally. 3: Remind yourself of previous challenges you have overcome. Know that "motivation follows action" I am reminded of a quote by Arnold Schwarzenegger; ....

  • Resistance Makes Us Stronger

    Resistance Makes Us Stronger

    Black Belt Champions and High-Achievers would never become great without the benefit of resistance. None of the greatest Masters or Sensei’s in the Martial Arts would become as powerful as they have without the benefit of resistance. Motivational Speaker and Best Selling Author, Zig Ziglar, teaches "We should always be grateful for our problems." The reality is, the challenges we face every day, really do make us stronger. If everything in life came easy, everyone would be an instant Black Belt. In the real world, the people that solve the most complex problems, are worth the most value in society. In the Martial Arts, in school, at work, in business, we usually learn the ....

    The memory of earning your Black Belt will last a lifetime. This martial arts honour signifies your personal growth, improved fitness and the ability to stick to a goal and not give up, no matter the challenges you face.
