Is this Possible?


Someone asked if it’s possible for the martial arts profession to grow enough so that we can work together to grow the image, professionalism and market penetration to the level we all know we should be at.

I say: not yet. We still have people who do not conduct themselves as martial artists in public, on social media, in their business practices or with their interpersonal connections.

I’ve been guilty myself.

But we’re all (myself included) getting better.

If we follow the leaders of this profession, who are representative of who we want to be in the public eye, we can get there.

So let’s embrace the good guys, the givers, the pros, the one’s leading the way to build a profession that we can all be proud of.

And let’s help the takers, the ones who insult, demean and bully to be better people. And if we can’t help them, then let’s not support them and they’ll go away.

Let’s look forward to the future with the intent of sharing martial arts with as many people as we can; it’s the right thing to do.
