  •  in Wake Forest - Innovative Martial Arts Academy - Just Smile

    Just Smile

    I once committed myself to an experiment. While out and about, at work, and even at home, I purposefully greeted everyone with a big smile. And as you might have guessed, most of the time a smile was returned. Then, I tried not smiling (hard to do, I’m generally a happy person), and again received the expected result…, I didn’t get any smiles back. Sometimes I got expressed concern, but never smiles. So, I thought on this as an example of the law of attraction. If you want smiles in your life, give smiles. You can do that with almost anything. If you want joy, you give joy, etc. And although I certainly believe in this, I found it goes much further. As I delved ....

    Making Pearls

    Most people have an idea of how a pearl is made already, but for those who don’t, don’t worry, I’ll quickly educate you. It starts with an irritant, usually a parasite (not a grain of sand), getting into the respiratory system of a clam, oyster, or mussel. The oyster, clam, or mussel then secretes a coating around the irritant called nacre. After time goes by, this secretion builds until we have that valued treasure we have a pearl. We all have irritants in our lives. When I was a kid, I was an easy target for bullying. Seriously, I could play hide and seek by turning sideways. That was one of my irritants. It was my childhood fear every day when I went to middle ....

    Choosing a Martial Arts School

    How do we choose a good martial arts school? It’s not as easy as you’d think. First, we must know why we want this activity for ourselves or our children. What’s your goal? Once you establish that, we need to find the school that aligns with those goals. There are many reasons for starting a martial arts class; discipline, goal-setting, better focus, confidence, self-defense, character education, etc. Once we know why we’re going, it’s time to do some research. Since web sites are designed to show you the best side of the school, I would suggest we turn to social media. Look through videos and comments to get a feel for the school. Make a list ....

    One of the Many Things That Sets Us a Part

    from Other Schools is our teaching style. Our instructors go through extensive extra training just to be an instructor. At Innovative Martial Arts Academy in Wake Forest, having a black belt does not mean you are an instructor. Our instructors are required to go through over 50 hours of Instructorship Training. Because of that, one of the first things you’ll notice about our teaching style is that we cater to every learning style. We know that all students learn differently and basically is dominant in one of three areas; visual, auditory, and kinesthetic (tactile). Our instructors get to know each and every student and recognize HOW they learn and work with them in a ....

    1 in 4

    I was driving through town the other day, and I saw a bumper sticker on the back of a car. It’s a bumper sticker I’d seen many times before. It was a pink “1 in 9” with a pink ribbon. It’s a reminder that breast cancer statistically affects 1 in 9 women. That’s a scary statistic! It got me thinking about another statistic. According to the US Department of Justice, 1 out of every 4 women will be assaulted during her life. That’s freaking terrifying! Now you’re thinking, here comes the big sell! You’re partially right! Yes, I’m a martial arts teacher who operates a martial arts business. But, I’m also a father and ....

    A Tree With Strong Roots

    There’s no doubt about it, martial arts is not an easy path. Martial arts is about learning to push yourself everyday. An easy path will never teach you anything, will not gain you anything, and will not make you a better person. When life gets hard, it hones us, tempers us, and makes it easier to empathize with others when they’re going through hard times. Easy will never to teach you to stand back on your own feet when life knocks you down. When you go through difficult times, it makes you a stronger person. If we were to liken it to a tree, the stronger the wind, the deeper your roots grow. This is one of many reasons that people, especially young ....
