Then came the internet, with video sites and all of this information was suddenly anywhere and everywhere for any poser or wannabe. The amount of potential knowledge is staggering. Demonstrations and teaching, every style, all of these moves. At first I thought the mystery and secret, mystic knowledge was lost, pearls before swine. As I continued teaching and learning, I began to realize something. People were getting lost in this sea of information. They wanted something REAL.
A real Grandmaster, a human teacher. Someone to ask questions to and give feedback. To exchange energy as only living creatures can. I realized, that just like the "what just happened, OMG" twisting techniques I love, martial arts had taken this momentum and turned it back on itself. The REAL SECRET stuff is still out there, and still protected from those who would not honor the commitment, integrity and friendship it takes to Walk the Path. The internet and its resources are wonderful tools, revolutionizing how we share and connect. More people than ever can benefit from the Martial Arts, But...you still need a Real Teacher, Real Friends and Real Heart to Really Learn.
