The other day while snowshoeing up Mt. Charleston I was thinking about how we are a part of our collective experiences. Meaning that as we go about our daily business work, family, vacations, training, etc. That each time we do some thing it is a part of what and who we are. I think that since this is the case it is important to experience a wide variety of different things. These expeiences are really, really necessary for any human. I am a firm believer in living in different places, vacationing to different places, visiting as many places as you can because…. you only live this life once! In the Martial Sciences I believe it is exactly the same in that you need to of course have a core system that you work with but you need to have other experiences to grow as a more complete martial practitioner. Get out and meet other martial practitioners from different systems and see and feel what they do. Take time to train under different instructors so that you have a well-rounded approach and experience different things. In IRT alone you should not just train with me but with Gary Haffey, Kerry Krick, Pat Mayette, Tim Oommen, Tony Kirby, Scott Sober, Mike Hammer and every person who has been around for a while. Experience what each person has to offer because while we all train in the same system we are each and every one of us unique and different! So training with any of us will give a different experience! Do not be someone who does not go out and experience different things in life. No instead get out there and see everything that there is to offer. Experience the world as it is your Training Hall and is full of Life Experiences for you!
See You On The Mats!
