Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

In the past, some have scowled, "Who do you think you are that you think you can do that?" Yet how many others dare the risks? Victors are merely those who stepped up; as showing up is half of anything. The other half is following through when catastrophe hits, while others flee. If you ...

Why Shouldn’t You Be More Successful?

Sunday, February 14th, 2010

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?You are ...

Sunday, January 17th, 2010

What's inside the mind of a fighter? I've trained many but the true inner life remains locked private.Within my heart I wonder: what if this were my final competition? How would I be remembered? Would I fight with honor; with valor; with integrity and dignity? Would I be worthy of ...

Why I Got Started in Martial Arts

Monday, December 28th, 2009

Doctors claimed my joint pain related to osteochondrosis, which basically means as I grew my connective tissue didn't adhere to my growth plates like normal children and causing conventional sports and athletics to shred me, requiring my mother to rub my joints with liniment nightly as I screamed through tears ...

The euphoria of exercise

Now, I know what you're thinking. And you're probably not far from the truth. When we're talking about states of euphoria, the sexual orgasm lights up the brain's neural circuitry like a Christmas tree.

Sunday, December 6th, 2009

You're often told that practice doesn't make perfect; perfect practice makes perfect. Unfortunately, this redundant cliche lacks meaning and guidance.

TACFIT Afterburn: 20min buys 38hrs Fat-Burn!

Friday, September 4th, 2009

A 60 minute aerobic exercise program may burn nearly twice as many calories during the activity, than a 20 minute TACFIT session. But after the aerobic class the fat-burning drops off to almost 10% within the first 3 hours. One 20 minute TACFIT workout however continues to burn fat off ...

Your Demons are Allies

Saturday, August 1st, 2009

Have you ever wondered why you are besieged with such bad luck? Have you ever felt punished by Heaven for some known or even unknown deed; like inner demons haunt you, holding you back from success? It's easy to think so, isn't it? It certainly was that way for me as ...
