    Tradition in Martial Arts: What it is, Why it is important and how you can benefit from it

    You may have noticed that karate is different from many other sport practices. With the students bowing and the belt system, you may wonder what its all about.

Is just for show. The answer is that here are so many wonderful points. Now, what is tradition?
    According to the dictionary, it is the act of passing down beliefs, ideas and practices through generations. If you look at traditional karate, you will see that it is based on principles of respect. Take a moment to watch, ....

    Zinka’s Fight Part 1: The Backstage Experience

    It is an amazing and beautiful experience to watch a fighter train hard and then be supported through a fight. I got the chance to document the care, emotion and tradition that cumulates on fight day, and now I can share what I witnessed with you all. I cannot be sure how other people were feeling, but I can describe how they behaved, and I can for sure how I felt. This blog post is a little long, but I want to do it justice. Walking into the stadium, everything was clean and organized, yet you could feel a buzz in the air — a mix of tension and excitement. It felt like there was this sense of “collective controlled stress”, where everyone knew what they were ....

    Will Karate Make Girls “Bossy"?


    Some parents may worry
    that if their girl get’s good at karate, she will become “bossy”. They may fear that in a higher ranked position, the authority will get to girls head and they may start to enjoy giving people orders and become arrogant, domineering and not liked. This seems to be a common concern. Personally, I have heard many adults (my parents included) make disapproving comments about girls with power being bossy, or predicting a girl will become bossy if she get’s any better at her sport/j ob/activity. While it is true there are a few girls who could improve their treatment of others, that can be said of anyone, ....

  • How to clean your hand wraps

    Here are two quick tips on how to clean your hand wraps! 1. Have you ever thrown your wraps in with your laundry and then spent an hour untangling them? To avoid this place them in a lingerie bag and then throw them in with the rest of the laundry load. Also, we recommend pulling them out after washing and air drying them. This will make them lye flat and not curl up and make it easier to roll them back up. 2. Don't have time to wash in between workouts? Simply spray them with Anti3 Disinfecting Deodorizer Spray and let air dry. This will kill all the germs and they will smell great! Click here to purchase now ....
