  • The Benefit of Parental Support in Martial Arts

    The Benefit of Parental Support in Martial Arts. By Heather Cox Being a parent with children in martial arts programs of SMA, I know how crucial a child's development is. You may think just bringing them in and then hanging out on your phone or conversing with other parents still tells your child that you support them. Got news for you, it does not. When we fall for a distraction like the social media checks or chatting with a friend while your kid is in class, it also distracts the child. How? When your attention isn't on them, IE eyes on them, clapping when they do a kick ass job, coaching them, they then begin to think maybe this isn't important for me either. Why? ....

    By: Gabrielle DiCervo This week I want to give you some tips on staying consistent in the Martial Arts. #1: Consistency creates accountability. We are all accountable for our growth. Let’s say we come short of reaching our goals, consistency plays a big factor on that. We are accountable on how far we grow in the martial arts. If we get promoted to a new rank, or not move up in our training, consistency plays a huge role in it! Every martial artist out there should be consistent. This is where accountability towards one’s growth and goals happen. So, what is your accountability? Are you accountable for your own results? In lie? ....

    Consistency in the Martial Arts is Key

    The Power of Consistency in Class. Sensei Gabrielle DiCervo One of the best feelings in the martial arts is the mastery of a technique. You feel like you climbed another step in your training. This gives you the drive and hunger to keep going for more. I honestly believe the most important element of taking training without a doubt is consistency. Most people think it's the actual trading that is the hardest. The hardest part of training is showing up to classes every scheduled day. Every class you take has a small benefit. However, being able to train with a consistency gives you the real progress. You're putting in the time that involves you ....

  • The #1 Thing Martial Arts Students Share in Common

    HiJDC here, I want to share with you a powerful thought on martial arts. But first I'd like you to meet my family... see video I have been doing martial artssince the age of 9. As a boy I've always known I wanted to practice martial arts. My parents started me with wrestling then judo. When we came to the United States I started with judo again and thenkung fu.

  • Powerful Self Defense - Love The Martial Arts

    Hey JDC here, I love martial arts... That is a fact of mine lol... I've been doing martial arts since the age 0f 7. It has become my life. It is what I do for a living. But what I really enjoy most about doing martial arts is teaching it to others. I love what it does for others when they first come into my dojo and have either dabbled in it or never stepped into a dojo before. The look in their face when they learn a new technique or when they fall in love with it and decide to make it their life. Priceless... I'm never underpaid... The joy of seeing my students and the confidence they gain from being a part of an ancient chain of warriors that began ....
