What’s Happening Around You

Today I am going to share a bog I wrote a couple of years ago about how to deal with fear, anger and upset.

The craziness around us was different crazy than today, but there is def enough to be anxious about.

I think it’s always so though, and why we should put most of our Focus upon the things that we can control.

I was talking to Sensei John last night and we were talking about some things and I shared with him that I always ask myself the question “what can we do about it?”

Then, once we answer that, we do so.

There is so much going on around me today that I am concerned about, in our country, in the world and for our future…

What can we do about it?

1. We can raise up tomorrow’s leaders today, with the Focus, Respect, Discipline, Confidence, Gratitude and Vision, leadership skills, patriotism, loyalty, grit and other skills and attributes to lead.

2. We can lead by example where we’re at and model positive and productive attitudes and attributes.

3. We can choose our associations and input carefully. The right tribe, the right books, materials and teaching. The right Focus.

I am proud and grateful that this is what we do at Krav Maga Martial Arts! 



Prepare To Live; Empower To Lead!
