Why do I practice Martial Arts?


Because I love helping and giving, and the things I see happen to people when I teach, the love and connections between people that come from my workshops is all I need to make me want to keep doing it.


I care so much about my friends and family that I do everything I can to make sure I can help them in any way they need. I work as hard as I can to earn money in case they need helping out. I make sure I'm not tied down to much so that I can be there for them. I don't drink Alcohol or take drugs so that I'm always fully alert and able to help. And I train so that I can kill anyone who tries to hurt them.

Taiji makes all these things doable. Which reminds me, I must take that first aid course again!
