N.E. Regional Workout

N.E. Regional Workout!

Sensei Fedele Cacia’s and Sensei Andrew Moores will be hosting a regional workout on March 28th, 2009 from 2-4 PM at Fedele’s dojo in Natick, MA.  Andrew states: “We are very excited to bring back this once important training session to the New England area.  We both feel strongly that an event of this nature is much needed within our beloved Uechi family.  We are both hoping for all groups and associations to participate in this great work out!”

Andrew continues: “I did some digging on Sensei Mattson’s site and found this great message that Sensei Tracy Rose had written about his regional workout hosted back in ’99.  His message very eloquently sums up what Fedele sensei and I are trying to accomplish with our regional workout.”

“I would like to thank you, Sensei Canna, all the instructors and students for creating a memory for all. By all accounts the workout was a success and so far has met it’s goals. I would like to remind people to follow through and go visit each other, complete that final goal. As stated at the workout, no one can get strong at this alone and no dojo get strong by it’s self, we need each other. We must continue building on the foundation our seniors have created. What a great time to be studying Uechi-ryu!! You could feel the electricity in the gym.

That is exactly what Andrew and Fedele are going for on March 28th.  The details of this great event can be found below.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call or write.

Sue & George’s New Dog

2700 Mile Dog Rescue

Herman & Bally

Losing Tia was a devastating and heartbreaking experience for Susan and me.  She was part of the family for nearly 15 years and as any dog owner will tell you, “putting down” a pet is traumatic.  Since being together, Susan and I have shared three amazing and lovable dogs.  Herman was the first; a pit bull — standard poodle mix, Bally; a purebred “old family red” pit-bull and of course Tia, another purebred pit bull.

All three dogs were outgoing, friendly and poster dogs for the pit-bull breed.  They were healthy, independent, strong willed and loyal friends to their owners.  It is a shame that the breed has become better known for its indomitable fighting spirit and competitive nature that can be easily be abused by their human owners than for the breed’s positive features.  Faced with increasing public condemnation and potential legal problems associated with the breed, Susan and I decided that our next dog would not be a “bully”.

Susan had been doing a lot of research on different dogs and decided for a number of reasons that a Wheaten Terrier would be our next dog.  We both agreed that we would try to find one in a rescue facility. After many weeks of searching, Susan finally found a candidate she fell in love with after seeing his picture and reading the description penned by the person who found him wandering around and living off his 2500 acre farm near Manhattan, Kansas.

HI!

 

Hope your new year is starting out Wonderfully!

 

I just wanted to share some awesome news!  We expanded the dojo by over 800 square feet and renovated the entire thing!  If you go to our website – www.tigermartialarts.info and go to the pictures page you will see the stages of the renovation.  We are almost complete.  I don’t have pictures of the murals that I have done yet – those pictures will go up when we have completed the whole thing.

 

The community was huge in this!  The project that would have cost – $20,000 ended up costing $10,000 through donations from various construction companies.  And through a bake sale and demonstration at the local high school we hope to cut that cost even more.


Have a Fantastic Day!

Shugyo Training Camp 2009

Dear Respected teachers,

I’m sending this email to you as a quick note that our annual Shugyo Training Camp will be June 5-7th, 2009.  I know last year there was some double bookings of events from all the different associations.  I hope this will give all teachers/groups a good enough heads up so they can plan their activities accordingly.

A formal invitation is in the works, but I wanted to at least get the word out to you as soon as I could.  If any of you have any questions as to the camp please don’t hesitate to write or call.  Our good friend Fedele has been a wonderful supporter of our camp over the years and we would love to see more of you wonderful teachers and students this summer.  I know there has been the perception that our camp is only for those that eat and spit nails and that only the strongest will survive.  I apologize if that is the perception and that is what has discouraged more participation in what we hope is a great camp for all.  We firmly believe in training hard…. But also training smart.  We believe that our camp is for all ages and abilities.  It is for those that want to push themselves and work hard.  My favorite attendee every year is my student Richard who is 65, with one fake hip, should and knee and has recently recovered from a near death motorcycle accident.  He pushes him self to where he knows he can and still get to work on Monday.  Strong spirit… but also strong mind…. He trains hard, but also SMART!

All my best,

Andrew Moores

BART shooting: Cause Unknown

 

 The recent shooting by the BART police in Oakland California raises many difficult questions which profoundly effect police and community relations.

I was called by the San Francisco Chronicle a few days after the event, as news reporters scrambled to turn out as much information as possible. Several videos were captured of a police officer shooting a subject to death. Because the BART police were refusing to speak about the incident the news media turned to the “experts”, and asked a variety of sources to weigh in on the video which captured a BART police officer shooting a 22 year old man in the back.

Whenever someone from the news calls, there is a moment of pause that always comes over me. I see my role and reputation as a police expert mostly established by the relationships I have within the tight-nit police community. I think to be viewed as an expert, and one worthy of the claim, you have to be anointed through your hard work and accepted by the police as credible. To understand policing, you have to be on the inside, train with them, and contribute in some way to the advancement of your proclaimed area of expertise.

Good Advice. . .

A “Keeper” for 2009

I get lots of newsletters from all kinds of individuals selling all kinds of products and services. The one newsletter that I read very carefully is from Terry Bryan. Although Terry is a very successful and famous martial art teacher, most of his advice pertains to martial art qualities that have nothing at all to do with fighting or self-defense. Hope you find his latest offering as helpful and timely as I did. G.E.M.

 

With all the negativity in the market place, I thought it was important to discuss the mindset of prosperity for the New Year. With all the negativity it is important that we stick together and focus on making 2009 a good and prosperous year. Each and every one of us is going to have challenges but remember the past is the past and all we have control over is the future.

The other day I spent a hour on the phone with Lee Milteer and we were discussing what is working and what people are having problems with in the Dan Kennedy inner circle and surprisingly the main issue was some of them had lost focus. She sent me an article that I have modified to help you focus on your goals.

We get what we think about, like the red car scenario, where when you buy a new red car they seem to appear everywhere but before you owned one you never saw one. If you focus your mental energy on prosperity with laser beam focus you will see opportunities everywhere, however if you focus on the doom and gloom that the media is pushing then that is what you will see.

Uechi-ryu & “Real” Fighting

Illustration by Keith Seidel

So You Wanna be a “Real” fighter!

OK. . . in my last editorial, I shocked many by stating “if you really want to learn how to fight, I don’t recommend that you try to accomplish it at a Uechi dojo or any other martial art dojo!”

So, if you want to be a fighter and you are willing to put the time into this effort, what is my recommendation?

1. First I believe you should get into superb physical condition. You may as well begin to accomplish your goal of becoming a fighter at the same time. . . my recommendation is that you empty your bank account and say goodby to your family for a couple years. . . then sign-on in one of the many legitimate training camps where UFC champions train.
