This site and blog are a central resource, for all things Budo/Martial Arts.
Hello Everyone I am a fellow Budo-ka and this site is for me to scratch an itch I know many other Martial Artists have as well.
First off lets start with, who am I and why should my opinions on the vast topic of Budo matter?
I am Anthony and I have trained in many different styles of martial arts over the past 20 years. I have trained and hold rank or instructor certs in: Jeet Kune Do Concepts, Krav Maga, Aikido, Ninpo, Kenpo Aikijutsu, and some Isshinryu Karate. I have studied, and continue to study as a life-long student, the Martial Way. Onuma Hideharu (Kyudo teacher) once said ” Technique is the stairway to the spiritual level” , and I have found that the ideas behind all martial arts that teach a thought process and exercise have expanded my understanding and compassion.
I am also a certified Reiki Master Teacher and am continually learning other topics on spirituality, including, Shinto, Shugyo, Zen and awakening. I am a novice in these fields, but do tie directly back to Budo.
It is my sincere hope that with this site, I can expand the minds of other Budo-ka as well as continue to grow myself as I train and read and meditate.
Thank you for your time and lets get to it.
