  • Kids Camps And Birthdays  in London  - Sherbourne Martial Arts Academy - Ways of the Warrior Within (1 of 3)

    Ways of the Warrior Within (1 of 3)

    Ways of the Warrior Within (Part 1 of 3) “Ways of the Warrior Within” is the first in a series of blogs that will explore the concept of the Warrior in history, what the Warrior-spirit means to us in modern-day society, and how every-day individuals demonstrate this concept when battling adversity. Future blogs will apply this concept to demonstrations of the Warrior-Spirit in action. The Warrior as History and Myth Throughout recorded history, the Warrior has served as inspiration to anyone who faces conflict, or challenges fear and adversity. When we look to the Warrior in history, we hear tales of King Minos battling his Minotaur, Achilles fighting for ....

    Finding your Bearings before Developing Self-Defense Curriculum for Children

    As a professional middle-school teacher by day, and a martial arts instructor by night, I have learned that developing self-defense lesson plans for children in the martial arts is not the same as developing lesson plans for adults. Children have very unique needs that must be addressed, and specific developmental stages that need to be accommodated in order to process the complex nature of understanding (and applying) martial arts concepts and techniques. A child’s attention span and physical capabilities will generally be limited within age appropriate norms, while adults, on the other hand, arrive with a larger tool box and a greater capacity to focus, process, and perform. ....

  • Kids Camps And Birthdays  in London  - Sherbourne Martial Arts Academy - The Truth About Self-Defense

    The Truth About Self-Defense

    The Truth About Self-Defense What does the term “Self-Defense” or “Self-Protection” mean to you? When considering a response, you must first understand that martial arts were never designed for tournaments. So by design the concept of a “square match go” was never incorporated into the classical martial arts curriculum. Some might even say that the term “martial” (meaning “military”) is a misnomer that does not even belong in the same sentence as civilian “Self-Defense”. This view is supported by the fact that many of the “classical” martial arts programs were developed and propagated for ....

  • Training with the Valente Brothers

    Visit to the Valente Brothers’ in Miami In August of 2017 I had the rare privilege of participating in a week-long training program at the Valente Brothers Jiu Jitsu Club in Miami Beach, Florida. I have been there several times before to attend private lessons, and my experiences each time have been nothing short of phenomenal, so I was really looking forward to an entire week of training with their team this year. The focus for this visit was Royce Gracie’s new program called “Royce 360”. As part of the continual improvements to strengthen his network, Professor Royce has recommended that all of the Royce Gracie Jiu Jitsu Network (RGJJN) Instructors attend ....

    Using Self Awareness to Keep Your Adrenaline in Check…

    Using Self Awareness to Keep Your Adrenaline in Check… What is Adrenaline? The online dictionary defines it as , “a hormone secreted by the adrenal glands, especially in conditions of stress, increasing rates of blood circulation, breathing, and carbohydrate metabolism and preparing muscles for exertion.” Having good endurance and being able to perform at your best for long periods of time is often attributed to experience. This does not just refer to job embedded skills, it also refers to staying calm so as not to release too much adrenaline into your body, which can also been known as having an “adrenaline dump”. Why is too much ....

  • Kids Camps And Birthdays  in London  - Sherbourne Martial Arts Academy - Why Royce Gracie Jiujitsu/ Gracie Jiujitsu

    Why Royce Gracie Jiujitsu/ Gracie Jiujitsu

    After being associated and studying Royce Gracie Jiujitsu under Royce for many years now, I can say that not only is he a technically superior combatant, he is also a very good tactician. In a jiujitsu match the ability to keep your opponent on their heels so to speak, or to just stay ahead of them provides you with the tactical, psychological and mechanical advantage that greatly increases your chances of success. The creation of the UFC, Royce's overwhelming success, and the explosion of Graice Jiujitsu was not an accident. Although the outcomes were shocking to the world of combatives, Royce and his family were willing to risk it all and demonstrate their art in front of the entire ....

    Valente Brothers, Royce Gracie and the new Fighting Foundations Program 2017

    The pic assigned to this blog was taken on the opening day of the Valente Brothers new Facility in Miami Beach back in March of 2017. The facility is pristine and projects a sense of power and purity with its clear story lighting (panoramic windows at the roof line that light up the voluminous training space that is approximately 20' in height, 80' long and 40' accross ). A great example of minimalism with a focus on the mat surface which is darker than the white walls, ect. Having trained under Royce since 2004, and having a deep background in Karate, Kodudo, etc. I am a firm believer that if you want to be YOUR BEST you need to train with those you feel are, and have proven that they ....

    Kobudo - a tradition of Using Improvised Weapons

    Although most kobudo appears very stylized... you have to remember all the weapons in our Kobudo training were common farming and fishing implements that were used as improvised weapons for combat purposes. During current times, one might think of using a bicycle lock, or a weighted baseball cap, or even a cup of coffee. The selection is as broad as anything that exists in and including your environment. Have a great day. ....
