Heroes and Their Demons

Article by:

Growing up, my major passion was baseball. I loved everything about the game and researched many of the great players. Players like Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Mickey Mantle were all not only legends, but heroes to myself and generations of kids before and after me. These athletes inspired orphans, overweight children, and those living in […]

Coming of Age

Article by:

I absolutely adore children. Next to women I think that children are one of God’s best inventions. Infants, babies, toddlers and children; I love them all. Teenagers on the other hand… But that’s a thought for another time. Every living creature progresses through stages in its life. Adulthood is reached over time. Maturity is a […]

The Intelligent Use OF Faith

Article by:

The concept of faith is generally misunderstood. Usually ascribed to a theological tenet, and in certain circumstances it should be, faith does not necessarily have to be relegated to any limited functionality. If anything is anything, than everything is everything. Faith can be taken in two ways: one is the “faith IN something,” and the […]

Breaking Bad

Article by:

Not very original and bordering on plagiarism but that’s me in spades. I’m a bad mutha (shut your mouth!) but I’m talking about Donn (then we can dig it). Yep, if I’m going to indulge in plagiarism might as well go all the way. Sounds like I’m bragging doesn’t it? “No brag, just fact”. I’m […]

The value of intuition is overlooked for the very fact that it is […]

Calm

Article by:

It has been my experience in Life that, with a few notable exceptions, whenever a bully is confronted with a resolute and calm and (at least SEEMINGLY) confident adversary, he will usually back down. Does not work every time, but it has proved to be, in my experience anyway, generally true. I noticed a while […]

Sand Fu

Article by:

Yeah, I know. I can almost hear you complaining, “Here he goes again with those ridiculous titles”. If you’ll be kind enough to bear with me for a few minutes I hope to get this to make sense. I’ll try anyway. As many of you know by now, I look back on my martial arts […]

Fulfillment through Sharing

Article by:

The word of God says that, “It’s better to give than to receive”. There are those who would argue that point. If they put forth effort they want to see some kind of return. If they sow it’s with the sole purpose of reaping at some future date. Unfortunately some of us feel that if […]

Metaphysics in Martial Disciplines

Article by:

This is a lengthy article, and I have broken it into two parts so as not to jam up readers, based on the concepts I will be talking about. I receive many questions and comments about my work and what I have accomplished in the martial disciplines for more than five decades. Every so often […]
