This past Thursday the Little Dragons class graduated from the winter/spring semester.

The remainder of the students had started within the past several months. Out of the three that did attend the entire semester only one was present this past Thursday. GR received a certificate and a ‘red stripe’ on her belt in recognition of the ‘time in rank’.

Little Dragons Class meditating

The Little Dragons being led through a lying meditation at the end of class. These students are the youngest students at the Studio (4-6 years old). Lesson: Regular meditation helps one to develop impulse control and teaches the use of Breath Control to adjust negative emotions, especially feelings of fear and anxiety during stressful times….and of course to control negative emotions such as anger and bad temper/attitude. A must for all serious Martial Artists…no matter what age you are! Adults Meditation Practice at JRRMAS is a Standing Post Meditation derived primarily from the I Ch’uan (I=Mind and Ch’uan=Boxing/fist) System. We have several ‘Sets’ that are practiced at the Studio from several of the different Masters that Sifu has trained with over the years. More on the importance of cultivating a daily Meditative Practice to come! “It all starts with the first breath”Sifu

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”
Sifu
