When I was 13 years old, my dad shipped me off to military school. I went to MMA, Marine Military Academy in Harlengen, TX. It was, and I believe, still is, an incredible school. I learned all about discipline and physical fitness.

I went in weighting 90 pounds, three months later I weighed in at 140 pounds and I was able to do 150 push ups in a row under 2 mins.

We had a physical fitness test "PFT" every three months, if I remember correctly...

We would jog every morning, together. It was awesome. So awesome that I'm deciding to require students of mine to undergo a PFT, physical fitness test in order to proceed with rank.

I think the Aikido training in itself is enough to get one in shape, but the running, push ups, pull ups, and sit ups just makes the training a bit more exciting. And best of all, the Army has an incredible website with all kinds of awesome guidelines for the Physical Fitness Test.

Tomorrow is our first PFT training at Memorial Park....I wonder if anyone will show up!

Here's another video - I sure am having fun making these.....
