Re: “How to Become a Martial Artist

If in childhood we used to enter the rollicking learning martial arts(, and when our friends rollicking also moved into other fields while we are a very few still enjoy practicing martial arts, then it is indeed a blueprint in the cells we carry. God or nature (depending trust us) had been decisive so.
There are still many people who think that practicing martial arts together with the practice of violence. Because there is taught how to punch, kick, attack, dodge and parry, or using a martial arts weapon which is a general movement in a fight. Moreover, coupled with action films or stories that always associate martial arts action violence.

Re: “How to Become a Martial Artist

OK i have a question, what kind of fighting is the kind where you do tricks like jumping off the wall and kicking and back flipping while knocking your opponent down. I'm just curious because I would like to learn these.

Don't forget the atelier school of classical realism, the best school for learning the techniques of the old masters!

Re: “East Bay Gym Directory

Thank you for posting this. I work for a physical therapy software company and we have been greatly concerned with the allocation of gyms in the East Bay area.

Re: “Recovery for the Rest of Us

There are actually a lot of people who offer such services in the state today. I would like to recommend the sex addicts anonymous headed by Grant Garrett. He also offers both marriage and individual counseling. More details can be found here:

Re: “Remake Yourself for Less Than $20

I love thrift store shopping. I agree that the larger chains like Goodwill never have good stuff, and neither do stores with indie hipster employees or ones in college towns. Drive a few miles and get out of town and you're bound to find something fantastic. Have you heard of flashing shirts? They are often worn at raves and electronica dance parties. They have a flashing marquee sign on them, and sometimes a picture, and you can program it to scroll whatever words you want. Anyway, I found one of those at a Salvation Army a few weeks ago, just in time for a dance party I was going to. Score!

Re: “Why Do You Work Out?

I work out for several reasons.

First, vanity. I don't like having to avoid looking at myself in a mirror, and I don't enjoy that "Eeeek! I gotta do something about this!" sensation. Its not that I want to spend my life looking in a mirror, I want to be able to present well.

Second, work. I am looking to start a new business. I have built two national companies from start-up, and I now want to do a new one. The last two were in electronics technology. This one is going to be health-oriented. Hard to sell if I don't look the part.

Third, health. This is probably motivation number one, but I am in such great health as a result of lots of exercise, my focus is on the two above, primarily.

Fourth, I like to be able to do very active things without any effort, from white water rafting to skiing to hiking to a gentle walk in the woods. Stay in great condition, and the most strenuous activities become immense fun.

Re: “Ing Well by Ing Good

I’m so glad you wrote this article. This is a very rich resource that contains a large amount of helpful information. In today’s world, everyone is finding an excuse for why they can’t achieve what they want. This article blows excuses apart and allows us to see that we can and should achieve anything we want to, with just a little research.

I appreciated seeing an outline of all of the opportunities available to me. With regard to the “reading” topic, recently someone gave me a book that actually produced a spiritual awakening. I found it motivational, and worthwhile.

The book I found helpful is by author C.J. Good, entitled “Little Gifts of Sustainable Contentment." It is composed of short, meditation passages for each day of the year.

This is an awesome little book for all people to stay balanced and focused on the spiritual side of life. I read passages each morning, which starts off my day with the right attitude. I am reminded to keep my selfish tendencies under wraps. I keep it on a table next to my bed, which helps me to remember to read it everyday.

Thanks for posting your article. It was valuable.

Re: “East Bay Gym Directory

You guys missed Planet Fitness in Fremont, Hayward, and Daly City. Not 24 hours, but great equipment selection at rock bottom rates.

Not an employee, definitely a member.

Re: “Reacting to the Recession

This is a great post – full of great information. I couldn’t agree with you more about disability insurance. I have seen the effects to families of not having this type of insurance when needed. It’s not pretty.
