In the meantime, because you were kind enough to contribute, I will keep your classified ad and or link in the Martial Arts Ezine at least until your article appears.

How do we keep this Martial Arts Ezine going and expand it even further?

With your help. If you would forward this to your martial art friends, I'm sure they would appreciate it. Be sure to enclose a note to them so they know I am not spaming them.

If this is forwarded to you by a friend and you wish to continue receiving this, check out http://tutor.hypermart.net/martialarts_ezine.html for details, or just forward your mail to Martialartists@hotmail.com with HTML OR TEXT as the subject depending on how you'd like to receive your martial arts zine. If you receive the Martial Arts Ezine in html format it will be larger, but it will include a usable search engine and FREE electronic greeting card program which can be used AS LONG AS YOUR ON LINE.

If you ever wish to stop receiving the Martial Arts Ezine just put unsubscribe in the subject and mail to Martialartists@hotmail.com.

If you wish to submit an article or place a classified ad put contribute as your subject.

I'll be adding martial arts links to each Martial Arts Ezine page and submitting those pages to search engines. So the more you contribute, the more your link will be submitted!

There is something I need to make clear to everyone. To promote this Martial Arts Ezine, I go from web site to web site and let people know of the ezine available for all martial artists. Although there is software out there that is available to do the job for me, I REFUSE TO SPAM ANYONE. I do not and will not send out a bulk email, with the exception of those who wish to receive the Martial Arts Ezine. Different search engines have different martial arts pages and the link may not be a different color. I have a prepared letter that I paste into their email, which I CLICK ON BY HAND. So, if you or anyone else ends up getting the same letter from me, it's because you are in different search engines and since I USE THE SEARCH ENGINES AS ETHICALLY AS I POSSIBLY CAN TO PROMOTE THE MARTIAL ARTS EZINE THAT is why you or someone else may get more than one letter from me. There is no mailing list other than those who receive the martial arts ezine AND IT WILL STAY WITH ME AND NO ONE ELSE. Now that that's cleared up...

The Martial Arts Ezine is now in hardcopy! . That's right I've been getting several request for hard copies in newsletter form of our martial arts zine. Anyone submitting a classified or an article will have it appear both in hardcopy and all around the world in this martial arts ezine. You may wish to include a phone number therefore in any classified ads you run for the Martial Arts Ezine. I will continue also to submit the Martial Arts Ezine to a web page and submit that site to up to 450 search engines. The idea of reading articles, and getting opinions from martial artists all over the world is amazing.


Quotes of the day: The Wise Man Hits First. (And the better man hits last.) But before you strike, reconsider one last time. Then, if you're reasonably sure you stand a chance, hit early and hit often. From Crank5

The river flows, seeking the path of least resistance, as men also should. Generally this path leads to peace. Sensei J. Richard Kirkham

How about submitting your own quotes. Martialartists@hotmail.com


Comment about the next article: In the 25 years I've been in martial arts, I have run across a few instructors who will not train people outside of what society considers to be normal, too violent, to mentally slow, too big, too small, missing or lack of use of limbs. For Sensei Terry Taylor, who humbly refers to himself as, "just Terry", outside the norm of society is perfectly normal for him, his students, and the yearly festival he holds to promote martial arts for mentally and physically challenged individuals. The Martial Arts Ezine bows and salutes Sensei Terry Taylor for his efforts, as do I as a dual certified teacher specializing in Special Education for Physical Education.


martial arts ezine handicapped karate, kunfu, boxing, grapplingMARTIAL ARTS FUN DAY FOR DISABLED PEOPLE DECLARED A HUGE SUCCESS

  Tuesday, 19 May 1998

  Kent has just enjoyed its third and most successful Martial Arts Festival for Disabled People. It is now, in fact, one of the county’s largest sporting events for disabled people. It took place at Cascades Leisure Centre, Gravesend on Thursday 14 May 1998 and was attended by over 300 disabled people. Fifty instructors from ten different martial arts worked extremely hard to ensure the day was the outstanding success it has always been in previous years. On offer was karate (four differing styles), judo, aikido, jujitsu, tae kwon do, kung fu and taiki.

  The increasing demand for places has grown so much that it has now become a regional event for the whole of the South of England. Enquiries are frequently received from all over the U.K. and overseas. It now acts as a model for developing martial arts for disabled people elsewhere.

  Festival Organiser, Terry Taylor says: "The South of England Martial Arts Festival for Disabled People has clearly shown there is great demand for such activities. All disabled people can participate in and benefit from martial arts by joining a local club of their choice. In addition, many of them are able to compete on equal terms with their able – bodied contemporaries."

  Anyone with a disability who is interested in joining a local martial arts club on a fully integrated basis can contact Terry for further information on this and details of future Festivals. The same applies to martial arts instructors who wish to seek advice in coaching techniques and any related issues.

  The South of England Martial Arts Festival for Disabled People was kindly sponsored by Gravesham Disability Sportslink, KentCare, Gravesham Leisure and Kent Sports Development Unit. It also formed part of the county’s first ever KentWeek.

  For further information contact Terry Taylor, Festival Organiser by e – mail: terry.taylor@dial.pipex.com

  All right that's about it this time. How often will this come out? You let me know how often you would like to come out by submitting articles and or classifieds. We're still in the beginning stages. As regular contributors contribute and regular advertisers run ads we'll know a lot more. I'd like to bring this back to every two weeks unless anyone has any objections. Once a week is very time consuming even with all of the wonderful support I get from you, my martial arts family. Have any suggestions yourself? Let me know.
