Kung fu is one of the most well known examples of traditional Chinese culture. It is probably one of the earliest and longest lasting sports which utilize both brawn and brain. The theory of Kung Fu is based upon classical Chinese philosophy. Over its long history it has developed as a unique combination of exercise, practical self-defense, self-discipline and art.

As part of my training, one of my teachers had me spend an entire day doing nothing but observing from early morning to evening. I had to sit in a field all day long without moving my body — he told me to just move my eyes very slowly from side to side.
What was I observing? What direction is the wind coming from? Does that cloud seem to contain any large amounts of moisture? Is it dark on the underside and light on top? If so, perhaps it’s going to rain.

Ninjutsu training is not like modern mma or mixed martial arts, in that there is a common philosophy and set of principles and concepts which underlie all ninjutsu More >

When I was growing up, my martial arts heroes didn’t come from the Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris era. I was born a bit after that, so I had a perhaps lesser known set of silver screen stars filling my head with imaginings. The classic BloodSport, Kickboxer, and Lion Heart movies from JCVD were at the top of my list. In these movies, each of his characters portrayed the classic martial arts story. The wise master who only teaches a handful of people teaches Van Damme, giving him superior fighting abilities, essentially crushing the competition. The master would always teach some unusual More >
There are millions of people training martial arts today. Many of them are training at professional levels (UFC). Typical skill sets range from Brazilian Jujitsu, Judo, usually combined with Muay Thai Kick Boxing, Tae Kwon Do, or some other “stand-up” styles. But there are big differences with what people are actually training. There is a major choice a practitioner has to make before stepping one foot inside a studio.
