In General PCMA Organization Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #23 New 09-14-2005 12:58 AM
Finally I have been invited to the PCMA by Larry Brooks.

About a year ago I inquired about the PCMA. I ended up sticking with another organization.

I e-mailed the PCMA the other day and Master Larry Brooks e-mailed me back and told me what I needed to do to become a charter school under the PCMA.

This is great. It means I dont have to start my own organization. It means I can look forward to yearly clinics, it means I have the support of the Masters of my art, it means I will be a student of these Masters and try to improve my skills even further.

I will stay with AARKJ because my instructor Master Chris Mitter has shown me so many things in life and in the arts. I will always truly be his in Budo. I will continue to grow from him as well. He has just been so busy lately with television shootings (for martial arts), learning from Master Jay in SSJ, and teaching his own classes. I understand how busy he must be.

I look forward though to what will become of the future. I look forward to seeing what the PCMA can offer me as far as instruction. These guys have been around for much longer than I could imagine. I cant wait to learn some things from them.

Anyways, I have a class tomorrow morning. I am going to go over Kote Gaeshi and Yonkyo. This will be nothing new to them, but it will be great practice.

I think they have made it to the point where they know a lot of techniques. Now they just have to learn transitional flow and how to take balance away from someone, how to feed something and then attack. I like to call it chess. So many people get on this "new technique" kick, when in reality it is more than that. It is learning how to read the partner, feed the partner, and take advantage of ma ai, and to learn how to adpat to reversals.

Well if I dont talk to you soon. Good morning, good afternoon, and goodnight.
