TRANSPARENT, BUT APPARENT. TRAINED EYES SEE… POWERFUL METAPHOR. A MUST READ!

Hello, everyone, I share with you today another bit of wisdom as usual in parable, riddle like form. TRANSPARENT, BUT APPARENT. TRAINED EYES SEE…

Image result for eyes gif



In life there can be many traps set by very clever predators.

TRANSPARENT

All of us would definitely call a spider an apex predator. What  or who have you seen in this life can be compared to spiders.

TRANSPARENT

Think of the very intricate webs they weave. Think of how clear and almost noticeable the webs are. How many of us to our terror have accidentally run into a spider web? Think of the panicked way we flail around trying to get untangled. Now think of an insect who runs into the same web and ask yourself if the insect had seen the web would he still have flown into it? Now as you know here at the “Warrior Wisdom Blog” I use a lot of metaphors. I leave you with a question on this topic. What are the webs in your life that you need to avoid…



And now a bit of good news! I have recently started a store based on my concepts I teach. Below you will find a shirt illustrated the article you just read. If you like my blog and have been inspired by what I share. Please Rep The “DO” by purchasing one of the awesome tee shirts on the site. The store is just beginning and there will be much more merchandise added in the weeks to come. Join me in promoting Warrior Wisdom by wearing merchandise with a wise message. The name of the store is The “DO” collection, DO means way in this case the “Way” of Shu Ha Ri Do Warrior Wisdom. You do not have to be a martial artist to be wise, but it is my goal that every Shu Ha Ri Do martial artist will indeed be wise. Godspeed in your quest.

LIFE IS A BATTLE, BUT BE INSPIRED, BUILD YOURSELF, USE THE BEST BUILDING MATERIAL, CHOOSE THE #1 ALLY AND YOU WILL WIN.

 

Greetings everyone, it is my hope that this post finds you happy, healthy, and wise. It is also my hope that this article inspires you. It has been said that life is a battle which means, there is a war. There are many ways in which we must become wise to the war. A teenager getting through the challenges of high school,

 A college student advancing through college

A graduate finding a career

 Finding a husband or wife

Safely raising children

All of these can be seen as a battle, because none of them are easy. It requires “APPLIED KNOWLEDGE” which is what wisdom is. In battle you must most “APPLY KNOWLEGE” which is being wise. There are others ways we could be at war with the more directly evil elements of the world. However, I will not cover that here, I have found that if one governs oneself with the highest wisdom much of those element can be avoided. So to summarize getting knowledge is half of the battle, applying knowledge is the other half. However, there is still one last step to this “war winning strategy” I will illustrate them all below.

 



 

 BUILD YOURSELFRelated image

As I have mentioned in previous articles you must build yourself with righteous knowledge. Output is equivalent to input, what you put in your mind will be expressed through the body, do not doubt this it is irrefutable! Seek daily to build yourself with righteous Godly knowledge become consumed with it! I did back in the 90s when I copied the dictionary, basically lived in libraries and book stores, studied every type of bible, all major religions, philosophy, the sciences, and lived a life of celibacy for 6 years until marriage. I waged war against my mind and body throughout this time to become disciplined. During this time I perfected the martial arts system Shu Ha Ri Do that I founded in 1998. Most importantly during this time I forged a relationship with God that sustains me to this day. I can truly say that his power fortifies my soul and his passion for his people has become my passion. Which is why I do what I do, but I began with building myself with righteous knowledge and applying it. It is the path that I know for becoming an honorable, trustworthy, loyal, moral, person of integrity. It is the path, the Code that I teach. It is a “war winning strategy” I encourage you to start building yourself with righteous and Godly knowledge and applying it, wage war against the flaws you see in yourself and your output will be pleasing and powerful, I guarantee it.

 



USE THE BEST BUILDING MATERIAL

Image result for carpentry gif

As I mentioned in the above section not only must you build yourself but if you want a Godly and righteous outcome you must use righteous “material”. For me concepts like, faithfulness, loyalty, truthfulness, morality, humility, patience, kindness, peace, and compassion, are “THE BEST BUILDING MATERIAL” all are concepts I found in the bible. Through applying these concepts in my life and in the lives of others I have forged powerful bonds of trust, love and loyalty. Through them I have built a strong family unit. You can too, you must wage war against temptations to be unfaithful, disloyal, untruthful, immoral, arrogant, impatient, unkind, chaotic, and uncompassionate. These are NOT “THE BEST BUILDING MATERIAL” using them is not a “war winning strategy” because they are self destructive.

 

CHOOSE THE #1 ALLY

Image result for God gif

Although I have many allies in this life, for me there is only one #1 Ally and that is God. I have declared my alliance with the Kingdom of Heaven. In a war the first ally I would choose would be the strongest one i.e. the #1,   I encourage everyone who have not to strongly consider it. Choosing the #1 ally is the “check mate” of this “war winning” strategy I present to you.

START THEM EARLY! TWO LITTLE 4 AND 5 YEAR OLD WHITE BELTS SPARRING AND APPLYING TECHNIQUE…

Greetings everyone, I hope this post finds you encouraged, inspired, and walking close with the Kingdom of Heaven. I present to you in this video two of my little proteges learning to discipline themselves through friendly combat. As always with any combat friendly or otherwise the Code I teach is wisdom first! In my teaching the more a student trains the more humble he or she  becomes. The focus is always to master self to such a degree that you are able to overlook the majority of offenses.  Unless in a competition combat then becomes only about protecting self and family from harm if it ever came to that. These two little proteges are well on their way to learning the Code.

NOTHING IN ALL THE WORLD IS MORE DANGEROUS THAN SINCERE IGNORANCE AND CONSCIENTIOUS STUPIDITY…

Hello everyone thanks for visiting today, tonight, or whatever part of the day it is where you are. I bring to you today a wise quote from Dr. Martin Luther King. As usual I will provide my summary and graphics to further illustrate the point being made by Dr. King. Internalize the wisdom from this quote.

NOTHING IN ALL THE WORLD IS MORE DANGEROUS THAN SINCERE IGNORANCE AND CONSCIENTIOUS STUPIDITY… -Dr. MLK

What is sincere ignorance?

 Sincere: True, honest, open and genuine

Ignorance: Lack of knowledge or information

Image result for ignorance is the night of the mind
SINCERELY IN THE DARKEST DARK

 



Why is it dangerous?

Because sincerity, openness, and genuineness mixed with a lack of knowledge creates a false sense of understanding, delusion is the result.

Image result for smarty pants emoji
THINKING YOU KNOW WHEN YOU DON’T

What is conscientious stupidity

Conscientious: characterized by extreme care and great effort

Stupidity: The opposite of intelligence, it is usually responsible for many acts that follow the words, “Hey, watch this!”
Related image
A “GREAT EFFORT” TO BE UNINTELLIGENT

 



Summary

So what we have with this quote is either someone with a lack of knowledge who “genuinely thinks” they understand. Or someone who puts forth a “great deal of effort” to be unintelligent on the subject in question.
My advice, seek knowledge then seek to understand and apply what you know. Never confuse “sincerity” with “knowing” something. You can be sincerely wrong. Never stick to what you “think” you “know”, always seek to become more and more “intelligent” about the things that matter in life.
As usual my friends and students, Godspeed in your quest for wisdom.

 

ALFONSO “CHOC” FRIERSON K.O.’S HIS OPPONENT IN THE 1ST ROUND IN HIS PRO BOXING DEBUT!

Greetings everyone, it is my pleasure to announce that one of my students Alfonso “CHOC” Frierson got a 1st round K.O. in his pro boxing debut. CHOC has been training with me for 8 years. He has excelled as a student utilizing my principles of “Flex Fist Boxing” and other Shu Ha Ri Do concepts. Although I also teach conventional boxing he also has two boxing conditioning coaches Robert and Ray Chavez who have done an excellent job preparing him. As of now I do not have video footage of the fight, I am waiting for it to be released so stay tuned to the site for updates. Until then enjoy two videos below of CHOC training and sparring with other Shu Ha Ri Do students.

WALK WITH THE WISE AND BECOME WISE. ASSOCIATE WITH FOOLS AND GET IN TROUBLE. A MESSAGE FOR ALL, ESPECIALLY THE YOUNG.

Greetings everyone, as you live and learn please understand, that wisdom is not popular. If it was, everyone would be embracing it. The reason wisdom is not popular is because it puts you in a position where you have to change and be better. Many are not ready to change or to be better, because all be it temporary, so many of the things that are unwise feel good to do. Many of us get into things that are not good for us for different reasons life can be hard, as a human myself I have empathy. However, the purpose of the “Warrior Wisdom Blog” is to teach you how not to be a victim of anything or anyone, even yourself…

The title “Walk with the wise and become wise, associate with fools and get in trouble” is a quote from the bible proverbs 13:20. Do not underestimate the impact of associations on your life. 

SMOKING

Some may say “I have my own mind, no one can make me do anything”. This is true no one can “make” you do anything. However, a fool can “make” anything look cool or appropriate to do. For example, take smokingRelated image

the results of smoking on health, are clear and without debate. If anyone is unsure about the effects of inhaling any kind of smoke, tobacco or otherwise, they would only have to ask themselves if their lungs were made for smoke, or what are the beneficial effects of smoke inside of the lungs. However, so many light up and inhale all kinds of smoke daily. One may say the songs didn’t “make” me do it or the movies didn’t “make” me do it. This is true however, many movies and songs are definitely not educating you on why you shouldn’t.

 



 INFIDELITY

Image result for cheater

Or how about infidelity i.e. cheating on your mate? So many movies and songs make that look cool or appropriate to do. However, no parent would endorse their son or daughter being cheated on. No son or daughter would endorse their mother or father being cheated on.

SUMMARY

In closing let me say that here are so many other activities that I plug into this article. However, I encourage you to examine your own life and associations and to determine where there is a lack of wisdom.

Just remember this just because you SMILE when you do it does not make it wise…

Once you see the effects of a lack of wisdom in your life. Once you see the chaos that a lack of wisdom brings to your life, certain actions should cease to be FUN to you. As a result it should become easier for you to get focused on separating yourself from those who are foolish.

FOOTWORK FOR THE JAB, 3 WAYS TO EFFECTIVELY MOVE FORWARD WITH THE JAB…

 

Greetings everyone, in Shu Ha Ri Do the jab is a big part of how we dictate and control the pace of fights. In fact there have even been knockouts based on how I teach the jab. Maximizing the mechanics that I teach helps you to develop the knockout power that I speak of, with just the jab. Click here for a video of one of my students ALFONSO “CHOC” FRIERSON from the DAWGFIGHT documentary executing the power of the “Shu Ha Ri Do Jab” with surgical precision. However, the video I present to you below is about using the jab while moving forward.

Greetings everyone in this video I share with you useful techniques for gaining control of an opponent and taking him or her down. Do not just practice this once or twice. To simply become discipline at it you must have the mind-set to do it 1000 times. To become a master at any technique you must have the mindset to do it 10,000 times. When you have that many repetitions under your belt, you no longer have to think, things just become automatic.
