A History of Karate

Karate is a defensive martial art form which focuses on open-handed counterattacking and shielding. The shielded theme of the art extends in a way to its murky history; those who developed it did so in utmost secrecy, terrified of the repercussions should their actions be found out by their tyrannical government. Due to this necessitated discretion, not everything about Karate's origins is known, and some aspects of its past have been constructed over the years through inference and speculation.

Why Should I Compete In A Tiger Rock Tournament?

Why Should I Compete In A Tiger Rock Tournament?

Tournament competition is about more than just winning medals, it is an essential element of martial arts training.

If you haven’t competed in a tournament yet, you don’t know what you’re missing. The benefits of tournament competition are so great, that if you asked me “What does it take to become a great martial artist?” I would respond with “a good teacher, practice, and tournament competition.”

Why are tournaments such a vital part of a martial artist’s training? Here are 5 reasons:

Reason #1: Tournaments let you test your skills.
You spend hours in class and at home developing your skills, drilling your forms, learning effective sparring strategies, working on your strength and flexibility… isn’t it time to put that training to the test? Tournaments offer a safe and positive environment for you to showcase your abilities and learn about what you need to improve. You will get feedback from the judges, as well as other competitors, on what you did well and what you should work on.

Marketing Martial Arts in Sugar Land, TX

new strategies for the new millennium

 by Rick Ellis

 

 

Nothing ever stays the same. In fact, some people say that the only thing that is ever the same is the presence of change. I think this is true. When I opened my first business (today I own three), which offered lessons in Martial Arts, in Sugar Land, TX, I was a young idealistic new business owner, I did what anyone would do, I purchased an ad in the local phone book, and entered into an expensive lease on the busiest corner in town That should have them beating the door down right? Well, it did for a while. It didn’t last forever though. 

 

Slowly, this strategy became less effective. As the 1990’s faded it became clear that there were two dominant ways that were the future of any business, one was business networking. The other (a topic of a future blog) was internet marketing. These two seem to be opposites of each other. One is faceless and one is face to face. But you’ve got to go where the people are.

Adult Martial Arts Sugar Land TX

how the classroom experience has changed 

 

I've been teaching and training in  Adult Martial Arts in Sugar Land, TX for the last 15 years. One thing I've learned, is that the only thing constant is change.  In the beginning only men wanted to train. Oh and kids too, thanks to ninja turtles.  Back then women were welcome to train but few actually did. Today however, the mat we use for Adult martial arts in Sugar Land, TX  is packed with women of all ages and backgrounds. Housewives train next to college students, who train next to those who are executives.

Kid’s Karate in Sugar Land, TX

the benefits for kids who train in martial arts

 

There are many reasons that families choose to enroll their children in martial arts. Rick Ellis is a 6th Degree Black Belt and Master Martial Artist. Rick teaches TaeKwonDo,a Korean version of Karate, in Sugar Land, Tx. After seeing all the kicks and punches and brick smashing featured in TV and movies, many people wonder how on earth these acts of violence could teach my child anything worthwhile? It’s important to start by realizing that what you’ve seen in the media is a far cry from what real martial arts is all about. In fact when Ellis trains kids in karate in Sugar Land, Tx, it’s based on non-violence.

 

Discipline
 
Training requires discipline of both the mind and body. Parents might worry that their child would become aggressive and violent, the lessons are geared around respect for your opponent. Progression through the different colored belts requires meeting of set requirements. This will teach children as young as 6 years old the value of hard work in attaining the level while exercising control over mind and body.
