The story of martial arts is one of determination, respect, and loyalty. It transcends race, culture, age and politics. Our society is a multimillion dollar culture driven high paid athletes, recording artists, movie stars etc., predominates and unconsciously defines for our youth what is considered a legacy. Honestly, we can all benefit in some way knowing about the martial arts and all the great martial artist. We do not know what the next day may bring. Grand Master Peter G. Urban said, “Today Is Now.” With that in mind, “It starts today”. You are never to old to start your martial arts training. All ages will benefit from martial arts.

There are many true legends living in our mist. Find them and do not wait for their passing to tell their story. They are the foundation of the present, and the inspiration for our future generations. Like some of these, artist listed, their effects positive, they are doers, rather than talkers. How do you know them? The real ones do not care where you place in their article or interviews on TV or in a magazine, web sites, instead they care about the meaning and the substance of the article. They care about their students and arts. These people work, have families, and struggle just like everyone else. Despite, their rise to a higher levels and show us the power and beauty of the martial arts, every day.

No one lives for ever and some people are born yet never really live. These people will live forever as they have shared their spirits and helped many. Martial arts is not about belts or ranks. Martial arts it is about training and inner growth and development.
