This past weekend we had a great time on Sunday, when we hosted a Daisy troupe of Girl Scouts. In case you weren’t aware, Daisies are girl scouts that are in kindergarten and first grade. It was a lot of fun, and the girls did an excellent job. We focused on the life skills of confidence, strength, and having respect for ourselves and others. I think the Girl Scouts are a great organization, and it was a pleasure to work with them.
Never Let Your Guard Down, a Lesson From Football?
Posted: February 20, 2011
What does a trick play in football have to do with martial arts? In all sports as well as in life, it is important to never let your guard down. In football it results in your opponent scoring a touchdown. In life, or in a self-defense situation, it can result in you getting hurt.
In football it is referred to as a “trick play” or a “gimmick play”. In the street please be aware that many street fighters have their own “gimmicks”. They like to do things like throwing something at you to make you flinch, before attacking you. This clip demonstrates in a fun way, why you should never let your guard down.
