No Fighting

I’ve talked in the past about the term “fighters” and how Muncie and East-Central Indiana have produced some of the best full-contact fighters in the world. I’m not here to take anything away from them or combat sports.


I need to make it clear, however, that that is not what we do. I’m not a coach, I’m a martial art teacher.

A Look Back at Twelve Years

Tomorrow Kuk Sool Won of Muncie will officially celebrate its twelfth anniversary! We had our first class on April first, 2005. We didn’t have any regular students yet, we hadn’t finished painting, and we didn’t have the carpet down. My little sister, Trinity was there in her new uniform, along with my kids and my […]

Martial Arts and Muncie Community Schools

There are no two ways about it: Muncie Community Schools are in trouble. I won’t go into my personal opinions, but the bottom line is that teachers and students are going to suffer through no fault of their own. People are trying to get to the bottom of the financial situation, and people are working […]

Reblog: Students or Members?

I’m sharing a little post that I wrote a few months ago. Take some time to think about your relationship with your school. Taking care of your martial art school is an essential part of training.   As I work on longer, more involved blog articles, I wanted to take a moment this weekend to […]

Ten Exercises that will Make Taking Martial Art Classes More Fun and Less Scary

Most people like the idea of being a martial artist. It sounds cool, and honestly it is cool. What we don’t like is getting started and actually doing the work necessary to become a martial artist.
