    This is a repost and meant to share and spread the word and wisdom of the legend. https://ballersreport.com/detail/bruce-lee-did-it-you-can-too-if-you-follow-his-timeless-wisdom ByShannon Lee In this first installment of a six-part series, Warrior Executive Producer Shannon Lee shares her father’s philosophies on navigating Hollywood .

  • Six ways ego can limit growth in the Martial Arts

    Six ways ego can limit growth in the Martial Arts

    1. Excessive teaching when drilling It’s one thing to help a white belt struggling through a technique. It is another matter to start reteaching a move after the instructor has just taught it. You are not allowing your partner to even try, fail and fix what he is attempting to learn. People who fall into this ego trap usually can be found say ing, “You work the move the whole time. I’ve seen this before.” Excessive teaching establishes a dominant role between you and your partner and allows you control of the situation and how much you drill. Boxers have seen a jab before. Elite boxers still practice a jab and associated footwork. There is a difference ....

  • Not all Schools or Instructors are Created Equal

    Not all Schools or Instructors are Created Equal

    To begin I want to tell you a little story. I was about 14 years old and I found a martial arts school I really enjoyed going to. I would walk from school right to the dojo, do my homework, and stretch. Then I would be a part of the little dragons class, be a part of my class, and would also stay and participate in the adult class. My mom would pick me up on her way home from work, so on average, I would there 5-7 hours a day. Things were going great. For the summer I needed to go to Florida and visit my grandparents for about 3-4 weeks. Once I got back home I excitedly rode my bike to the dojo to get back into training, and much to my surprise it was gone. No signs, no ....

  • Using YouTube to Assist in your Training.

    Using YouTube to Assist in your Training.

    So I was getting ready to take my Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do test with Sifu Ron Balicki and I was having a hard time remembering a few of the techniques. I was struggling to remember what to do and my next lesson wasn't until next week. What can I do? Oh, wait there was a YouTube tutorial on the series I was struggling with. I pulled up my instructor's YouTube channel and propped up my tablet and was able to watch and review just what it was I supposed to do. Youtube as a training aid can be both good and bad, it all depends on how you decide to use it. A great example is I had a student that trains in grappling and they found a video on a Single-leg X-Guard to and Omo Plata technique. Now, ....

  • We Made It!!!

    We Made It!!!

    We made it!!! I was not sure just how this year would end like I am sure many of you all were. But nevertheless, here we are in the last few weeks of this wacky, wonky year. This year has had a lot of ups and downs for a lot of us. We are incredibly grateful for all our members, especially those that stuck it out with us during the rough lock-in months. We have had a lot of changes this year, we raised the floors in the main dojo, we upgraded our lights to energy-efficient LED lights, we moved the Pro Shop to the front, and we have launched more new shirt designs this year than in any other year Keishidojo has been in business. We are excited for 2021 as we hope ....

  • Sword and Dagger Training

    Sword and Dagger Training

    One of my favorite things to train from the Filipino Martial Arts system is Espada Y Daga or Sword and Dagger. In this week's Technique Tuesday video Guro JD shows several different options to a single six-count drill. Whether you decide to use the figure 8 series, the abanico pattern or even a redondo drills to get to six strikes with a sword and knife are pretty simple. Now in this video JD substitutes a stick for the sword, but the technique operates the exact same. We hope you enjoy the video and don't forget to give it a like, share it with someone, and as always please subscribe to the channel as it really helps us out. One last thing, we hit 500 subscribers!!! Thank you, everyone. ....

  • June Newsletter

    June Newsletter

    Happy June everyone, we made it to the halfway point for the year. For many of us the years started off pretty well, then took a crazy turn and for the last few months has been, well, different. We had to skip a promotion cycle, learn online classes and how to navigate that world in a whole new way and even find ways to get you all the services you have come to love from us. Now that school is officially out and summer is upon us, and although we have not been given the green light to completely re-open, I do feel fortunate to be at the state we are at. Several states are just allowing classes to resume (today) in the limited capacity we started weeks ago, and other states have ....
