The Evolution of Mixed Martial Arts

Martial arts has been a lifestyle and art form for millions of people
for centuries. It caters to our natural instincts to survive, our
desire for combat and more importantly can guide a student with
values, respect and life lessons that only martial arts can provide.

There are hundreds of different fighting styles that have been
developed throughout history including karate, Brazilian jiu jitsu,
boxing, muay thai, krav maga and many more. This often leads to a
debate on which form is the superior martial art. Where has this
discussion taken us? To the evolution of

Why We Do What We Do

As humans we are very much driven by internal motivations. In most cases these internal motivations are unknown to us. We're walking around on autopilot, doing, creating, and living according to these deep set motivations. Motivations which can be of a positive or a negative nature. Our psyche doesn't seem to mind either way. It just guides us according to the programming that already exists. It brings us to places and conditions in our life and we often wonder how we got there. Good or bad, it lays the course of our life.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Shou' Shu'

A few weeks back the Sheng Chi Foundation was featured on the front page of the Stockton Record.

Shou' Shu' is Worth Preserving

Occasionally I am told of some group somewhere practicing Northern Shou' Shu'. This is wonderful. As a matter of fact today a Shifu that travels From Sacramento to train in my school told me of a group training together in Sac. They just refer to themselves as the club. It's not a school it's simply a place where a few devotees go to practice Shou' Shu' the way they learned it. The way Da' Shifu taught it to so many of us when he was alive.
They are honoring their teacher and this is highly commendable.
