This links to the saying that "Black belt students are only White belt students who never gave up or stopped learning."

Every big dream takes time to achieve. Don’t worry if you will get it or not, just work for it. Make all effort to make it happen and you will get great results.

How wonderful it is to see your students performing very well in a gradng given the difficulties of training and practising over the lockdowns. The performances were top class. Well done!

Your mind is a tool that you can control—if you choose to. It can be an asset that allows you to experience wonderful things. It can also be a source of pain and misery if you let it fixate on negative thoughts.

Very well said. Own your life and work to mae it better.

“Stop expecting another person to change your life or give you what you want. It’s your LIFE. Your goals. Your dreams. Your future. Go after it. Fight for it. Make it happen. Appreciate everyone who supports. Be grateful and humble always.” Liz Faublas. #community #choikwangdo #learnrespect

Happy 😃 Sunday 💪

[08/07/21]   As a school owner and instructor it's always lovely to mark the personal journey of our students.

I'm so pleased to receive this today. I am so grateful to Master Malcolm Macarthur for all the time he has spent training me and then grading me. I also grateful to Mrs. Morag Macarthur for the help she gave to Master Macarthur during the grading.
I still have difficulty in believingthat I managed this. Onwards and upwards.

The DCMS have formally updated their Combat Sports Framework guidance, removing entirely all references to the dreaded 'Return to Play' policies and Phases of Return. For now, martial arts as we know and love it is back with a focus on common sense, best practice and collective responsibility.

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of our members, sincerely and profoundly, for your support over the past 18 months. Each one of you - new members and long-standing clubs - are the collective reason why BMABA have succeeded in building up 30,000+ members despite the struggles of the pandemic. We can't thank you enough for entrusting us with your most valuable possessions - your club and your students.

If you haven't already, now is the time to stand-tall and congratulate yourself and your colleagues for weathering the worst disruption grassroots martial arts clubs have faced since the Second World War. We think you're all absolutely inspiring. Keep on doing what you do, and lean on us if you need any further support unlocking your classes.

Your continued support and fees help us plant trees to remain carbon-negative, fund water projects in developing nations, fund life-changing martial arts programmes here in the UK through our Foundation and supports us in promoting and protecting grass roots martial arts for generations to come.

Now is the appropriate time to resume full contact training and grappling but we would urge caution and a balanced, professional approach the timing and undertaking of this. You know your clubs and your members better than anyone else. Our best practice guidance is available from MyBMABA immediately and we will continue to support clubs however we can in the months ahead.

Thank you.

It is much easier to teach than to educate. To teach you merely need to know, but to educate you have to be. This is so true of Choi Kwang Do.

'Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present'. Some good, ancient, and stoic advice, from the philosopher emperor Marcus Aurelius – who died on this day 180 CE.

In a book he wrote to himself, known now as 'Meditations', the Roman Emperor wrote that happiness, moral virtue, love, & inner-strength are readily available to all of humanity, and that we need not look outside of ourselves to live a good, moral life.

People who share humanist values are likely to find great value in Stoic philosophy. It's highly practical and focuses on the human need to live ethically. It also focuses on how we can't control all aspects of life, but only our reaction to what happens within our own.

If you're interested in Stoicism, here's a wonderfully spoken lecture by Dr. Michael Sugrue that paints a good picture, describing Aurelius as a man, the leader of the known world with absolute power, but who continually strives towards a good moral life. https://bit.ly/2Q4yQM3

This is worth being a part of. All belt levels can participate in the first session and I would recommend that anyone planning for their black belt grading should be involved.
All black belts should sign up for the second session.
The times in the UK will be 4 hours later so the first session will start at 7.00 p.m. and the last session finishes at 10.00 p.m.

Martial Arts is more than the belt you wear, more than the style you train in,more than the uniform that you wear.
