Quotes of the day:
Keeping my Christmas Promise to Print This to Remember the Warriors of Freedom
Something to think about! :-)
TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS,
HE LIVED ALL ALONE,
IN A ONE BEDROOM HOUSE MADE OF
PLASTER AND STONE.
I HAD COME DOWN THE CHIMNEY
WITH PRESENTS TO GIVE,
AND TO SEE JUST WHO
IN THIS HOME DID LIVE.
I LOOKED ALL ABOUT,
A STRANGE SIGHT I DID SEE,
NO TINSEL, NO PRESENTS,
NOT EVEN A TREE.
NO STOCKING BY MANTLE,
JUST BOOTS FILLED WITH SAND,
ON THE WALL HUNG PICTURES
OF FAR DISTANT LANDS.
WITH MEDALS AND BADGES,
AWARDS OF ALL KINDS,
A SOBER THOUGHT
CAME THROUGH MY MIND.
FOR THIS HOUSE WAS DIFFERENT,
IT WAS DARK AND DREARY,
I FOUND THE HOME OF A SOLDIER,
ONCE I COULD SEE CLEARLY.
THE SOLDIER LAY SLEEPING,
CURLED UP ON THE FLOOR
IN THIS ONE BEDROOM HOME.
THE FACE WAS SO GENTLE,
THE ROOM IN SUCH DISORDER,
NOT HOW I PICTURED
A UNITED STATES SOLDIER.
WAS THIS THE HERO
OF WHOM I'D JUST READ?
CURLED UP ON A PONCHO,
THE FLOOR FOR A BED?
I REALIZED THE FAMILIES
THAT I SAW THIS NIGHT,
OWED THEIR LIVES TO THESE SOLDIERS
WHO WERE WILLING TO FIGHT.
SOON ROUND THE WORLD,
THE CHILDREN WOULD PLAY,
AND GROWNUPS WOULD CELEBRATE
A BRIGHT CHRISTMAS DAY.
THEY ALL ENJOYED FREEDOM
EACH MONTH OF THE YEAR,
BECAUSE OF THE SOLDIERS,
LIKE THE ONE LYING HERE.
I COULDN'T HELP WONDER
HOW MANY LAY ALONE,
ON A COLD CHRISTMAS EVE
IN A LAND FAR FROM HOME.
THE VERY THOUGHT
BROUGHT A TEAR TO MY EYE,
I DROPPED TO MY KNEES
AND STARTED TO CRY.
THE SOLDIER AWAKENED
AND I HEARD A ROUGH VOICE,
"SANTA DON'T CRY,
THIS LIFE IS MY CHOICE;
I FIGHT FOR FREEDOM,
I DON'T ASK FOR MORE,
MY LIFE IS MY GOD,
MY COUNTRY, MY CORPS."
THE SOLDIER ROLLED OVER
AND DRIFTED TO SLEEP,
I COULDN'T CONTROL IT,
I CONTINUED TO WEEP.
I KEPT WATCH FOR HOURS,
SO SILENT AND STILL
AND WE BOTH SHIVERED
FROM THE COLD NIGHT'S CHILL.
I DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE
ON THAT COLD, DARK, NIGHT,
THIS GUARDIAN OF HONOR
SO WILLING TO FIGHT.
THEN THE SOLDIER ROLLED OVER,
WITH A VOICE SOFT AND PURE,
WHISPERED, "CARRY ON SANTA,
IT'S CHRISTMAS DAY, ALL IS SECURE."
ONE LOOK AT MY WATCH,
AND I KNEW HE WAS RIGHT.
"MERRY CHRISTMAS MY FRIEND,
AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT."
This poem was written by a Marine stationed in Okinawa Japan. The
following is his request. I think it is reasonable.....
PLEASE. Would you do me the kind favor of sending this to as many
people as you can? Christmas will be coming soon and some credit is due =
our U.S. service men and women for our being able to celebrate these
Let's try in this small way to pay a tiny bit of what we owe. Make
people stop and think of our heroes, living and dead, who sacrificed
themselves for us. Please, do your small part to plant this small seed.
How about submitting your own quotes. Martialartists@hotmail.com
Does kata (forms) help you with self-defense? Your Answer
yes I believe they do -once you truly understand them-not just do them. they can often give you new insights on your art and can often lead to a sharper and clearer mind-making the warrior within that bit more tempered and refined, after all combat is fought on more than one plane.
Does Kata help with self defence... You KNOW that's gonna spark debate;
here's my part of the fuel for the fire Bottom line? Yes... sort of... Kata are a definite asset to training; they help with form and bring familiarity to the various techniques.
They also, unfortunately, breed habit with specific responses towards some actions. I believe that if a student is learning a Martial Art, Kata are a must (if included in the specific art).. If a student is strictly learning self defence, they should likely stay away from hard-set forms and concentrate more on confidence with a few select techniques. This is said with the premise that self defence is a specific end as opposed to a devotion to training.
Kata adds to the art in the martial arts. It adds nothing to self-defense ability other than a broken jaw from chamber punching and not keeping your hands up.
Can a good street fighter beat a black belt? Your Answer
Anytime, any day.
It depends on whether the stress on the style is tournaments or combat.
It totally depends on the type of black belt the person is. If they were trained in the traditional, full contact old styles of the arts, then probably not. It also depends on whether the street fighter is trained, or if they attack the bb from behind. I have witnessed many a black belt loose a street fight because of these factors: 1. They are a point fighter. 2. They trained at one of those "Anyone can be a black belt schools." 3. They were jumped from behind and hit with a club or pipe. 4. The street fighter was a well trained Martial Artist or boxer. 5. The black belt just plain sucked. 6. The black belt was from a Tae Kwon Do "Super Mall" school (one that teaches for money). 7. And lastly, the black belt didn't have chance because he was drunk or stupid. After working security for many years in bars, I have one thing to add to this question...could a street fighter beat a qualified, well trained black belt in an actual front to front face? The answer would probably be no, but remember that no matter how tough you are, there is always someone tougher. Sincerely: Shihan S Franz, 6th Dan Black Belt Aiki-Te Ryu Karate Do
Yes, having a black belt means a lot, but I have read and heard of schools that give a black belt too soon in a students martial arts career. Having a black belt doesn't neccesarily mean you are invincible, but if you have had the right training and have practiced it would definatley improve your odds.
Can a good street fighter beat a black belt ???
My answer is, that's a great possibility.
Black belt don't guarantee a man to be able to beat up street fighter. It depends heavily on our continuous training, reflexes, and senses. I don't know about the condition in America, but here in Indonesia, we can't underestimated street fighters. Here, many black belt people being beat up by street fighters.
I've seen some persons who takes Kempo classes ( three black belt persons ) being beat up by a single lonely street fighter, and then those Kempo black belts went down unsconcious with only a fast single slap to their face
Black Belt-ers, If you think that you can beat up street fighters, then try Indonesia's street fighters. You have to think more than twice to face them !!!!! Even if you had a gun ....!!!!!!!!
A subscriber has written in and was wondering what martial arts exercises he can do to help lose weight? Your Response
There is a fun little exercise that really gets the blood going.. it's called a prostration.. You stand straight, hands above your head... then you lie down on your stomach, hands extended in front of you.. then you stand up straight, hands above your head.. that's one. do as many as you like/can.. usually, if you hurry, the average guy will get winded after 10 to 15.. standard Martial Artist, about double.. try doing 50 a day, whatever the pace.. you will loose weight guaranteed..

SPONSORSHIP, HOW CAN I GET SOME?
We've all seen the words, at the end of a sport or on
a banner somewhere, "This event sponsored by Company
XYZ!" I'm sure everyone has wondered how they can get
sponsorship for their team or event. Well, I'm going
to share with you a few things I have done to get a
My name is Bill MacCumbee, and I am the head
instructor of World Jiu-Jitsu Academy in South
Carolina. I've been training in the martial arts for
16 years now, and have been in marketing and sales for
awhile also. Thanks to my training in sales, I've been
able to turn a small one-room recreation center class
into 8 schools in the lower southeast. Thanks to my
approach, I was able to secure sponsors so my fighting
team has been able to travel all over the world.
I'm going to share with you a few things that you
probably already know, hopefully a few that you don't,
and a lot of fluff in between.
Getting sponsors is really no harder than getting
students if you break it down into the easiest form of
understanding. All you are doing is sharing your love
of the arts and your devotion for your team with
someone else, (hopefully a company that is willing to
give you money for your passion.)
Sponsors, just like any other consumer listen to a
radio station called WCYD-FM. I'm sure you've heard of
it, matter of fact you probably listen to it too. The
letters break down like this. WCYD-FM is actually,
What Can You Do For Me. that's what sponsors want to
know. If they give you money, what are they going to
get out of the deal. They've got money to spend, (lots
of it, in some cases) and they want to know why they
need to spend money with you..
This is the way I have done it for my teams. This may
not be the best way, but it seems to have worked for
My first step to getting sponsors was to go to my
students. I approached a few of my kids' parents and
flat out asked them if they were interested in
sponsoring the team. Many said no, but all had advice
on how I could get others to help. Seeing this as an
opportunity, I took some of their advice. I first went
to the recreation center and the YMCA and got a copy
of their sponsors' list. It was easy to get. All I did
was ask for it. The YMCA was a little less forthcoming
with the list, until I told them that that was why the
sponsors donate, so their name is out there and
customers start calling.
Next I started to collect business cards of all
the places I could. Every restaurant I ate at,
and every store I shopped. I collected cards
and owner's names.
After I collected names I started to create my
packet and my sales pitch. To create my
packet, I went online and found a few racing
teams. You know, the "A" track car racers
that want to be NASCAR. I chose them
because racing is a sport that NEEDS sponsors.
You can't just put together a car and go to
the local track and make it big. If you are going
to make it, you need sponsors in that sport.
I emailed them and told them that either
I, or one of my employees saw them racing
and I wanted to get their sponsorship packets.
I then took their packets, compared them
and created one for myself.
After I had my packet, then I started to sell myself.
My packet is real simple. I'm sure that it's not the
most traditional, but it works. What I did is, I went
to my tournament and demo tapes, (everyone tapes ALL
of their demos and tournaments, don't they?) I created
what I called a "Hot button tape" What that is all of
the best stuff I have, set to music showing my team in
action. Now, here is the mistake people make. If you
are going to create a tape like this, don't just tape
what you think looks good. The sponsors don't really
care that you are on tape splitting 6 cinder blocks
with your head with only two people watching. What
they are looking for is the number of people in the
venues that you're at. Take your tapes and condense
them down showing some nice stuff that your team is
doing, but make sure you show the sponsors the
background. They want to see the number of potential
customers, not how many boards you broke on a demo.
Take your tape and make it so that it is fast paced,
exciting, but also that it sells the fact that you are
in the public eye A LOT. That's what they want. They
want to put their name beside yours only if you prove
to them that a lot of people see you.
I then created a sponsorship scale, just like PBS does
for their money drives. If a sponsor donated X amount
of money, they would get this .. If a sponsor donated
more, they would get more .. if a sponsor donated even
more, they would get even more. I created three
levels of sponsorship. Bronze, silver, and gold. I had
plaques made to correspond to the medals. Whenever a
sponsor donates, I go to their office, with a camera
and a few members of my team, and I present the plaque
to them. This does a lot of different things. This
thanks them first, which is most important. Then it
makes one more opportunity to be in the paper for both
of us, then later on, it creates something that one of
their customers might see and it draws them to us,
just like we're doing for them.
My benefits that each sponsor gets varies, but the
most important thing is that I promise to put my
sponsors names out so people can see them. You can do
whatever you want, but make sure you have a few
options for your sponsors to do. Don't just say,
"look, if you give me $200.00, I'll put your name in
the paper." This doesn't work. Make sure you make
their money go far, but don't make it so easy that
every one of your sponsors get the same thing.
After I got my tape, my pay scale, and my packet
together, I was ready to gather sponsors. The first
people I hit were my parents. My students' parents are
always the first I go to for anything. I went to all
of the parents that owned businesses and asked them,
Here's how you ask for that:
"Mr. Jones, You know that Johnny (His son) is on our
competition team and he's had a lot of different
tournaments that he's went to in the last couple of
months. Right? I'm sure you've also noticed the
expense involved? We'll this is what I've been
thinking about, and I need your advise. I am trying to
gather sponsors so that parents like you won't have to
put so much money into your children's pastime. I need
you to tell me, since you own your own business, how
someone like me would get a business to sponsor a
team?" The great thing about this, is that Mr. Jones
will now tell you exactly what he would do if he were
going to sponsor you. He will tell you about his
perceived value in your program. He is giving you the
key to sell him on the idea of sponsoring his son. He
is giving you the hot buttons to push to sell him and
more like him. Listen intently to what he says, make
the things he says a reality, then show him your tape,
and ask his advice. Pitch your packet, and your pay
scale, if you did a good enough presentation, he'll
volunteer to help out. If he doesn't volunteer, ask
him if he knows anyone that would help out. He might
help you, or he might get some of his friends to help.
Your parents are just itching to help you out, utilize
them. They will be your biggest supporters.
Now we go to big businesses. If you want to get a big
business to help, call them up and talk to the person
in charge of donations and sponsorships. Do the same
thing that you did for your parents, ask them to tell
you what you would have to do to get a sponsor. They
will tell you. If all you get is, "submit your packet
and we'll look at it. If we can help you, we will."
Ask for more. Ask for what they look for in the
packet, ask them how many small teams they sponsor
right now, and ask them what your chances are to get
them to sponsor you. You'll be surprised what someone
will tell you if you ask for it. After you talk to
them, make your packet for them. Send your tape and
then call back. Make sure you stay in contact with the
person you talked to on the phone. Make sure that
whoever you talk to, you try to create some form of
relationship with. You don't have to take them to
dinner and a movie, but the friendlier you are with
this person, the better. If they are the
decision-maker, then you creating a bond will get them
to help you better, and if they are not the
decision-maker, they may pull some strings to help you
out. Make yourself unforgettable to them and not just
another hungry bird looking for a hand out, and you
might just get something.
I'll now share something with you that should help you
more than any of the proceeding words.
If you don't ask, you won't get.
