Last Sunday we had a 6th Dan Master visit for an Escrima seminar. Coolness! Master Ceth Jordan is amazing. He and my instructor, Master Jeremy Fox, have trained together for over 12 years, directly under our Grandmaster for several of those years. They continue to train with Grandmaster Han whenever they are able to take the time from their duties as State Head Instructors for Arkansas and Missouri.
The Seminar was great! We worked mostly outside, which was nice for lots of reasons. The noise of sticks banging tog...Read more

It was a beautiful morn...Read more

I was so tired when I got home from work today that I decided to lay down and take a little nap. No problem there. I got home just before 5pm and everyone was doing their own thing.
I got into some comfy clothes and fell fast asleep. Nothing bothering me, I knew the kids were fine and things were good in the house.
I hear my door close. I looked out the window to see my daughter driving down the hill. Looking at the clock it read 8:38.... Confused I went in the living room and Jessie there on the computer. I asked her if she ...Read more

Here is a bit about the Global Gateway experience. I've included some pictures of the kids and the area.

We had a group of 25 kids and 5 adults.
3 adults drove and everyone got to ride the school bus! I drove!...Read more
