I remember watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as a small child. I use to watch the cartoons and the movies, read the comic books, listen to the audio cassettes, and play with the action figures.
I use to pretend to be the ninja turtles and making nunchakus out of wood and rope or chain. Working my chuking skills from an early age.
The turtles were a good role model for the young. They fought bad guys and do good for others. They inspired a whole generation of martial artists my age many young students every few years when they come back as a new series or movie. ANd I am so glad for that.
Martial Arts is an amazing thing that I believe everyone should be taking part in. It’s a way of life that shows you one way of being a better version of you. Through mental, physical, and spiritual training. Martial Arts is a workout with a purpose. It is a way to learn how to face and overcome your fears. You learn how to defend yourself. It always you to see the world in a different light. It’s very zen like.
