World Martial Art's Training Day - Train For The Love Of It

Tuesday, December 15th, World Martial Art's Training Day. It is a time to renew our love for our Art, our love for training, and to honor Mr. Parker and his legacy. Mr. Parker made countless contributions to the Martial Arts.

I hope everyone took the opportunity to train for the Love of it. I was fortunate to train with my husband (Melvin Ruth) and one of our good friends (JJ Simon). We chose to train Kenpo via ground fighting. We worked through various ground positions utilizing the best targets, weapons and angles. We made many discoveries. We all hope you enjoyed training that day.

How wonderful it was to set aside the daily stressors of life and do something fun with people you share a passion with. To completely focus your body, mind and breath for a few hours. To apply the science of the principles of motion and to test the boundaries of Logic. It
was a wonderful experience both challenging and fun. My spirit has been renewed.
