National Human Trafficking Day

As Modern Martial Artists, community warriors, this issue as much as any issue is related to our practice.  We teach that our community, or village, is our responsibility to take leadership, and action to protect, and grow.  And, that village must include the most vulnerable, and victimized.   At the very least we can become aware, and educated.  So many people have the belief that this kind of slavery is taking place only in places far away, and certainly not in our cities.  It is unfortunate,…See More

You won't believe this video: or maybe, you will.

This video shows exactly why I teach, rather we teach, Bully prevention at MIMA --   We have literally taught hundreds of hours, mostly unpaid to kids from all over the greater Seattle area.  We teach not only the target, but also the kids who bully about tolerance and respect for others and self, and perhaps most importantly, we teach bystanders how to handle it.We…See More

I am really enjoying the classes, it is fun that the entire family is now doing it! I see someone else posted this question, but I don't see the answer. Do you have a pointer to the vocabulary blog/wiki?  You also mentioned a "ettiquette explanation" - I'd love to review it.  

 

Thanks

Kenny

Hi Melisa. Thanks for the heads up on the video for the pomse. I found it under the 'current adult poomse' title. One thing I was looking for was a list of vocabulary that we use. I'm slowly getting the counting but am having a hard time understanding what is said when we bow and when we finish for the session and throw our fist in the air.

thanks
