It's good to be critical!

As a martial arts and fitness fanatic (maybe sometimes even too meticulously), I try to read and find as much information as I can.  Some of my favorites are ‘Essentials of strength training and conditioning’ of the Human Kinetics series or ‘Periodization‘ by Tudor Bompa etc.  Part of my reading includes magazine subscriptions as well, which are often good resources and enjoyable to read - that is if you can keep a critical eye while weeding through all the correct and incorrect…

Belt ranks

I wanted to dedicate this post to explaining more about belt ranks in martial arts (and yes, also to show off our own belt rank system...)


For a very long time, there were no colored belt ranks in martial arts.  Judo was the first art that introduced colored belts to indicate ranks.  Knowing that Judo originated in the late 19th century, the colored belt rank system is a rather new development in martial…

Peace like a River

This is a book that will own you before you are half way through reading it. You will give up any chores that need doing, you will ignore phone calls, emails, your children, your friends--just to get to the end of this book. Do not, however, try to read ahead. This is not a new book-it was published in 2001--so I wonder why I hadn't read it before. The author's style is at once poetic and practical. It makes us all wish we could write like Leif Enger.
