Self-Defense policy @ JRRMAS

Just a few words concerning the Studio’s Self-Defense policy.

We seek peaceful means to resolve conflicts.

Success in self-defense is not winning a fight, but avoiding it in the first place.

Remember the following continuum:

If you can’t prevent it, avoid it.

If you can’t avoid it, defuse it.

If you can’t defuse it, escape.

If you can’t escape, you may have to defend yourself .

If you do have to defend yourself, it will always be as a last resort, and only under the direct threat of physical harm, countering with the least amount of force necessary to subdue the attacker.
(A highly trained person can use joint/locks and takedowns to control the attacker with no lasting damage.)

Adult Karate-Do rank testing 1.22.09

At this Adult Karate-Do rank testing Dennis Gobiel was promoted to Probationary Black Belt. Dennis started training with me at NMH while in high school. He is on JRRMAS Staff, helping with the youth and adult Karate-Do programs

I’ve just started this Studio Blog ( JRRoyMartialArts.blogspot.com ). This is my second post. I plan to start publishing everything from inspirational quotes to Kata’s (forms), tech, drills, exercises, qigong, pictures, short videos and my own original ideas that come out of my daily practices over the past 34 years.

I’m not sure the frequency for posting new material yet, but at least an ‘lesson’ per week to start with …maybe more…I know some of you have been waiting (patiently) for me to publish for years and I think I’ve finally found a format that works for me..stay tuned for more! I’ll be more inclined to work on the Studio Blog it if it’s being read…so please RSVP me an email or write a ‘comment’ when your in looking at it and please help to pass the word….ok?

My first J. R. Roy Martial Arts Blog

Little Dragons class Fall 2008
Hi everyone…I’m creating this blog to archive some of my martial arts ideas, photos, videos and teachings.

Lesson 1:

My first thought about Martial Arts
is simply that practicing is a ‘way of life’,
it’s something that you do daily (or almost daily),
for as long as you are able to.

Lesson 2:
This brings me to the idea of practicing itself
and what can be learned from successfully developing a life long daily practice.
Cultivating the capacity to practice X many day’s in a row.
Just to be healthy enough, physically, mentally and emotionally to be able to!

Lesson3:
The actual goal;
A celebration of human existence….
reveling in it…..
contemplating it…
truly experiencing being alive!

At the JRRMAS we study the human experience through the daily practice of martial arts. We practice internal & external martial arts, weapons, qigong and meditation (I Ch’uan)

“We are spiritual beings having a human experience”
Unknown

“It’s simple…..Cultivate a curiosity about developing a daily practice”
