The Most Important Goal

Lately, I have felt silent. There have been lots of ideas for a journal, but when the time comes to write it out? The ideas fall flat. Last night is worth writing about.


For 5 years I have had the same fitness goal: to keep up with my nephew Luke. All the push ups, crunches, miles, kata, all of it, is to be fit enough to play with my now 5 year old nephew at his level. Yesterday, that goal was accomplished! 


Luke was in town visiting grandma. She needed a…

KARATE-DO My Way of Life





My Way of Life

Gichin Funakoshi


In reading this great book I was inspired and captured by a few sections.

Weeks 27 and 28!

This month is going by way too quickly. It's been a big month with a few ups and downs.

The comfort of knowing that there a couple bike rides coming up that will make that right up...…

Dr. George Thompson, 1941 - 2011

It is with great sadness that I must inform you of the passing of Dr. George "Doc" Thompson.

For 27 years, as founder and CEO of the Verbal Judo Institute, Doc led the charge to elevate the professionalism and communication skills for crisis professionals, such as law enforcement and all first responders.

His work gained many followers, in both the public and private sectors.

"The entire basis of Verbal Judo is to treat people with dignity and respect, most of all…
