Do You Even PARI Bro?

Do you even lift bro?

A fair question, I suppose, as strength training is an important component of a well rounded fitness plan.

Whatever the answer though, I guarantee more people lift than PARI.

And PARI will make you even more powerful.


PARI is the process of Plan, Act, Review and Improve.

It is the “secret” to the success of our dojo, camps, business, and each and all of our amazing Blackbelt Leadership graduates.

It is the magical process by which we plan our work and then work our plan;

and we constantly review to see how we can become even better……

and then turn that plan into more action.


It’s how winning is done.

It’s fun.

And it’s powerful.


Today Barb and I PARI our first quarter plans and goals, review what we did well and what we should do better;

what to throw away, change or improve and also what to keep.

Then we make our 2nd Quarter plans and goals.


The process is simple, not easy.

But I’ll tell you one thing, with absolute conviction grounded in real experience- it is worth it.


I have a friend, KMMA Master Instructor William Kremner, who often says “it ain’t gonna do itself”, as a reminder that we need to work hard if we want to succeed.

And this is true.

The same is true of PARI too.
