Skeletal Structure

January 13, 2019
 

I Hello Gentlemen, I hope all is well. What have you been doing with your own training and development?

With both your Martial Arts and your Spiritual growth. Our spiritual growth and well being can be independent of our Martial Arts which we all know, but our development in the arts can not and should not be independent of our spiritual growth and dependence upon our Lord. We can be puffed up with pride as Martial Artists  even being a Christian. Pride will make us useless to God in the Arts. No real fruit can come of it. Be on guard against this in your own life. I have seen this happen. It is a subtle thing, it will sneak up on you if your guard is down. This does not just happen in the Arts. As a Christian Our Lord needs to be included and consulted in all matters of life. Go with God always. Learn of His love for you, which is a pursuit that should never end.

May God truly bless you all.

Draw Near
July 4, 2017
 
I hope this finds you well.

Practice lifting all things before the throne of God. Train yourself in this way. So when a situation comes upon you, you will react in kind. You want this to be part of your life. You want this to be an extension of your life. You want this to be what you do.

So draw near to God. It says in James 4:8, draw near to God and He will draw near to you. So practice, teach yourself, train yourself in drawing near to Him, from your very soul not as duty or for gain, but love. We love God because we see His love for us. It says in 1 John 4:19 we love because He first loved us.

So draw near and see that He is good and His love is beyond measure.

God bless you all.

Easter

I pray you all have a blessed Easter. Remember to spend some personal time with our Lord, and reflect on the true meaning of what this day of celebration represents. Let us give our heartfelt thanks and praise His name.

Love you all.

A Christmas Blessing
December 21, 2016
 
Dear Seigido Ryu Family,

May you and your precious loved ones experience this Christmas Blessing at Christmas and in the New Year.

May the joy of the angels,
the eagerness of the shepherds,
the perseverance of the wise men,
the obedience of Joseph and Mary,
and the peace of the Christ Child
be yours this Christmas.

George Washington
November 9, 2016
 
I hope this finds you all well. As we approach Thanksgiving Day, remember George Washington's Thanksgiving Proclamation of 1789. It reminds us of who to be thankful to an why. It also reminds us of the issue of "The separation of church and state." Which does not exist as progressive thinkers would have us believe. Consitutionally, government is not to interfere with religion or the church, but religion is by all means to influence geovernment. Specifically the Christian faith in which our nation was founded.
 
Quote by William Penn: "Those people who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants".
 

Thanksgiving day was and is to be a day of prayer to Almighty God, thanking Him for all things.

A copy of George Washington's Thanksgiving Proclamation is available at both the Howell and Oldbridge Dojos, if you would like a copy.

Receiving Correction
 

Please do not be discouraged when you are being corrected in class. Sometimes students may feel they just can’t get it right, and this can be discouraging, “been there, done that” as the expression goes. I’m still there so welcome to the club of imperfection. No one is perfect, only God is perfect. So we must accept the fact that we are normal… that is if you consider Seigido Ryu practitioners as normal. Some would argue that point. (only kidding, I think.) As far as I’m concerned, if a student is doing his or her best that is perfection enough for me.

There are many things we have learned and have under our belts, and there are many things we are still learning and this will go on throughout our lives. Correction will always be a part of the learning process.
