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.

WATER IS ALWAYS CORRECT! PURSUING SELF MASTERY? READ AND COMPREHEND THIS!

Greetings everyone, in my book “Harness the Power Within and Without” I cover Shu Ha Ri Do concepts for self mastery under the Kingdom of Heaven. Below is a powerful excerpt from that book. It is my hope that this article inspires you in your journey.

“FROM HARNESS THE POWER WITHIN AND WITHOUT”: In the Shu Ha Ri Do Symbol the body is represented by water. What are the attributes of water? Its calm, it’s cool. However based on the stimulus it can flow rhythmically or crash violently, water can be vaporous like steam or

FROM WATER TO ICE A FLEX FIST BOXING CONCEPT

solid like ice. Its versatile it reacts instantly, overtime it will dissolve anything its perfect. To quote the ultimate inspiration in my life Jesus said he is the living water. To quote another major inspiration in my life Bruce Lee said we should be like water, be like water indeed, when faced with any challenge



Image result for be water my friend gif
BRUCE LEE

in life reacting with sound judgment should be your goal. At times the body could be spurred into action quite impulsively, like when in a verbal or physical confrontation. This is when mistakes, sometimes costly ones are made. What spurred you into action? Your mind of course, the good thing about the body’s relation to water is that it reacts to stimulus the bad thing can be just that, it reacts to a stimulus.

What type of reaction depends on the morals, ethics, values, and condition response patterns established in our minds.

We are accountable for what we do through our bodies it starts with how we think. Thinking before reacting is a big part of being wise. This is what I mean when I say “WISDOM BEFORE COMBAT”. 

In “Harness the Power Within and Without” I go into more detail about the mind and it’s influence on the body. Feel free to visit the book page on amazon to read more about “Harness the Power Within and Without”.

THE STORY OF HOW I CREATED SHU HA RI DO, AND MY MOTIVATION FOR WRITING AND TEACHING

 

12 TRAITS EVERY MAN WOMAN AND CHILD SHOULD EMBRACE. THE MISSION OF SHU HA RI DO.



I am writing this article because I want everyone to have a clearer understanding of the mission of Shu Ha Ri Do. If you are a student, subscriber, or follower of this blog or the Shu Ha Ri Do youtube channel then you are already aware that I Sifu G. created Shu Ha Ri Do in 1998. Since then I have published 4 books and a magazine. The articles I publish on this blog are very helpful and thought provoking. However, I felt the need to formally say that my allegiance is to the Kingdom of Heaven, God, and his son Yeshua. However, I do not subscribe to a religious ritualistic view. I subscribe to a moral, truthful, honorable, faithful, bible based lifestyle. I call it a righteous lifestyle, a Kingdom lifestyle. Such a lifestyle that we would encourage our children to embrace. A lifestyle of helping, caring for, and protecting others. A lifestyle of leading by example. So, if you are familiar with the hundreds of articles I have written on this blog you will see this consistent theme. A theme that can be summarized with these types of words.

1.MORALITY

2.TRUTHFULNESS

3.HONOR

4.FAITHFULNESS

5.LOVE

6.WISDOM

7.RESPECTFULNESS

8.DISCIPLINE

9.SELF MASTERY

10.PEACE

11.PROTECTION

12.SAFETY

These words summarize what Shu Ha Ri Do is all about. These words outline the mission. The final words of protection and safety are vital to me. Vital because what good is love without protection, what good is morality without safety. No one should feel the least bit of guilt or hesitation about being prepared to keep safe those who are weak, at risk, or those you love. It is my hope that you are inspired by these types of attributes and find them just as valuable for children and families as I do. It is also my hope that wherever you are, you will be motivated to cultivate these attributes in your life and the lives of those you love. Until next time GODspeed everyone…

TRAINING METHODS OF THE GREATS. A PEEK INSIDE OF GEORGE ST. PIERRE’S UNIQUE TRAINING REGIMEN.

When it comes to greatness in anything, there is a thin line of separation. Finding that edge that will separate you from good to better is one thing. however, find the edge to greatness is very difficult and many don’t achieve it. In this video I appreciate George St. Pierre’s approach to finding that edge.

THE PROCESS OF BECOMING… IF SWORDS COULD SPEAK! ARE YOU LIKE A SWORD? READ AND BE ENCOURAGED!

What do you see in this picture? Looks pretty much like worthless scrap metal. So many of us can relate to feeling worthless at some point in our lives. Just another “rat” in the “race”. Or in this case just another piece of scrap metal on the pile entangled with all the other pieces. Sometimes although we know we are entangled, those entanglements become comfort zones preventing growth.

Image result for scrap metal

Then, as if feeling worthless at times isn’t bad enough life can heat you UP to the point that you feel like you are melting DOWN. It can seem unfair, and with how those who are “in power” show no compassion, that just may be the reality.

 



Image result for molten metal in water gif

Now, here is where things seem to get even more out of hand but it happens. Not only are we dealing with our own feelings of self worth, and life heating us up, but we actually encounter people and circumstances that strive to beat us down.

Then, just as things seem to be totally hopeless the heating and the beating stops, and life seems to “cool” down. Things seem to take shape again.

You see,  as many of you know, I like to use analogies and parables to convey concepts, and processes of life. This analogy of the “becoming of the sword” surgically illustrates what happens to us in life. However, what we “become” as a result is up to us. If we refuse to “melt down” when life “heats up”. If we refuse to stay down when people or circumstances strive to “beat” us down, we will become as razor sharp as the Katana sword. I speak from experience. Life’s processes have made me razor sharp, and continue to sharpen me daily because I always expand my knowledge and application. So, if swords could speak they would tell us a story of how they became what they are. They would tell us how worthless they once thought they were before they became a sword. They would tell us about the heating and the beating and how much it hurt, and then they would tell how they have become sharp enough to slice through any problem life had to offer.  In closing, I would like to ask each of you, who do you think the “Blacksmith” sharpening you is… GODspeed in your quest…
