Hey family, a lot has happened in 2016. We feel so blessed to be able to share with you our love for the martial arts. This week I am going to share with you some of the Kung Fu posts we wrote this year and 2 from the end of 2015.
Because we put up so much content out, sometimes some of our gold nuggets get lost in the shuffle. Take your time this week going through this update.
Here 7 articles to help you get over excuses and inspire you to get your training on:
1. Around this time last year Jamie wrote a blog post about her Kung Fu journey. In that article is a video of her and Hector practicing Tai Chi Push Hands. Hector is one of Sifu Phu’s students who also helps us film lessons for you often.
Jamie shares a few pointers on push hands as well as some things that come up in your training with others.
2. A couple of questions seem to come up every week.
- How long does it take to learn Kung Fu?
- Can I really learn Kung Fu without a partner?
In this article I explain why you can learn Kung Fu online. We live during an amazing time. Today you can literally get knowledge from around the world in seconds.
3. Last February, I talked about what is arguably the most important sentence in our Ngo Dac Na system.
That sentence is: You have to be a C.O.P. to know your F.O.E.
What makes Ngo Dac Na special is the fact that it is based on energy and physics principles. Once you understand these things, you will be able to apply them to your martial art regardless of style.

4. In this next article we released more of the training Jamie and Hector did. This time the topic was Flow drills.
Jamie also shares insights on the importance of daily rituals to stay balanced and having people around you that will challenge you to be your best and not make excuses.
5. This next article really hits home for many people. You are never to young or to old to start training in martial arts. While it’s true some martial arts is better left to the youngsters like Wushu, the internal martial arts can be learned at any age.
This particular article Jamie wrote really speaks to the heart. It’s never too late to get started in your kung fu journey!
6. This article has to do with the 3 most important virtues of your martial arts training. If you follow these 3 virtues diligently throughout your life, you will find success in everything you do. 🙂
I’ll give you a hint, the first one has to do with discipline…
7. Do you ever feel like you aren’t progressing in your Kung Fu training? Don’t feel bad we have all been there. In this next article I shot a video specifically talking about this issue.
As I said early take some time and go through these articles. I believe you will find something that will resonate with you and help you to take 2017 to the next level.
