  • Friction in the Dojo: How It Can Move You Forward - Have you experienced friction in the dojo? Here, we explore what that means and how it influences our success in the martial arts.
  • Gasshuku Interview With Hanshi Patrick McCarthy - With the 2018 Koryu Uchinadi North American Gasshuku just around the corner, I had a chance to speak with Hanshi Patrick McCarthy (9th Dan) about what the Gasshuku means to him and what we'll be learning at this year's event. 
  • Martial Arts & Swimming Alone - As a child, I was afraid of swimming in open water by myself; the vastness frightened me. For many, the martial arts generate this same fear. You could spend a lifetime exploring its depths and never fully understand it all.
