While I am not a Ron Paul supporter, I do support this video…

That is how you keep government spending down and deal those wasting government funds!

This explains so much…

High-Tech Security

I practice High-Tech Security:

I have six locks on my door all in a row.  When I go out, I lock every other one.  I figure no matter how long somebody stands there picking the locks, they are always locking three!

While this is meant as a joke, there is a lot of common sense in this approach which is something most people forget when thinking of security or problem solving in general.

Board Breaking

Let’s start with a laugh, I like to say I’ve never met a board I didn’t like…

Well anyone who has attempted to break a board has experienced this at least once!  Lose your mental focus, feel fear or uncertainty, lose your physical focus and that will probably be you jumping around screaming!

Focus, this is the real trick in the Martial Arts or any fighting art, to much focus (see above) can be a bad thing.  While you may gain power you lose your situational awareness.  Instead of focus you need to train to stay relaxed, aware of your situation and fluid, this will give you the ability to react without the time delay of planned movements.  When I spar I rarely look at my opponent, in other words I do not focus on the person I am fighting.  Instead I relax my focus and heighten my awareness of the entire sparring situation, taking in their whole body or multiple attackers.  This is almost the opposite of what most students are taught when breaking boards.  Yet relaxing your focus can accomplish the same thing with the benefit of not getting tunnel vision.  You are simply putting your fist or knife hand strike to a defined spot, past the object, regardless of the object.

However I’d like to end by saying I have never met a board I didn’t like…

Perhaps I need to rethink that!

How Tough are You?

Well there are a lot of ways to find out. You could visit your local biker bar and kick over a few Harley’s. Or, you could go patrol the ghetto streets of Detroit, DC or Baltimore. Or, you could find a group of hostile 5 year olds and see how many you could take…that’s what I did…
Well sort of…while I hope to never have to find out for sure (I can only imagine how the press would run with this!) but after taking a short survey I found out…


28

Not bad but I have nothing to compare it to, perhaps you’ll take the survey (for fun of course;) and post your resulting in the comments? I’m looking forward to it…

The Games are back!

All work and no play makes for a boring individual, so that saying goes.  Well far be it for us to stand in the way of fun here at KarateTraining.org!  Since our site rebuild our games section has been offline and our patrons have let us know, emails, phone calls, it was really overwhelming.  So back by popular demand is the KarateTraining.org games section.  You can find it in the top menu or by using this link.  Unlike the old section you can now add comments.  We are hoping our patrons will post comments with their favorite games and perhaps their high scores, unless you think you aren’t good enough to compete…chicken? 😉

Staying Safe

No longer do I need to stay awake all night to keep my family safe from Ninjas.

That’s right, no more peaking out the windows, or sliding down the hall!  But perhaps I should have set the time a little earlier, like around 11PM.

The Debate is OVER!

Are you an Over or Under?  I am an Over and a militant one at that!  Turns out I am in the majority, not that it mattered 😉

Here is the proof…

Government Run…

The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. Our government had 236 years to get it right and it is broke.

Social Security was established in 1935. Our government had 76 years to get it right and it is broke.

Fannie Mae was established in 1938. Our government had 73 years to get it right and it is broke.

The War on Poverty started in 1964. Our government had 47 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to “the poor” and they only want more.

Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. Our government had 46 years to get it right and they are broke.

Freddie Mac was established in 1970. Our government had 41 years to get it right and it is broke.

The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. Our government had 34 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.

Our government has failed in almost every “government service” they have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars.

How can so many Americans believe Obamacare will be successful…or our occupation in the Middle East…or meddling with capitalism and our economy?

Only an idiot would trust the federal government!

Thanks to Denney Crane for posting this on his blog, it was to good not to cross post.

I was impressed and a little envious until I saw the other pair of legs…
