A Tribute To A Warrior - We Will Miss You Master Morris Coker!

Thu, 03/01/2007 - 10:09am — webmaster

When one thinks of Morris they have to have a smile on their face. He was loving man, a great husband, a great martial arts instructor, a wonderful friend, and a true student and warrior!

When I first met Morris many years ago, I saw him standing at the side of our training hall with a video camera in his hand. He seemed quiet and reserved and yet nothing could be further from the truth.

Protocol In Martial Arts

Sun, 04/10/2005 - 1:18pm — webmaster

In traditional Martial Arts, protocol is of vital importance.  The protocols spring from the tradition of each style and from the tradition of the Martial Arts in general.  Without protocol, there would be no preservation of tradition.  Without tradition all we would have left is perhaps a game or a physical fitness program.  Martial Arts is bigger than that.  The reason it is bigger is because we preserve those good things about our Art that have been proved true and useful throughout the centuries.
