The image of the iceberg you see symbolises my Knowledge and my Experience of the Martial Arts. The Black Belt 6th Dan is a significant marker in my Martial Arts career.
A level I honestly did not think I would achieve.

Since being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2017 (and then Googling the damn thing!) I was ready to Give Up.
Note to All:
Never, Ever Google Anything Medical!!!
In my mind, MS was bigger than me. It’s incurable, the therapy may work but there is an increasing risk of PML (brain pop) the longer you use it.

Look at the image again.
Does it represent your life right now?
Can you think of a time in your life where you faced some struggle?

It Doesn’t matter how big or small, we have all faced difficulty or struggle at some point. Mini icebergs.

The iceberg, or ice cubes, could represent something you wanted to achieve in life; A place you wanted to visit or a course you wanted to attend or even an exam at the end of a course.

Perhaps my Premier Dojang Tribe have recently come to realise, with the Reintroduction of the Stripes System, that there is so much more to my teachings than just Kick Punch Punch.

Like Daily Life, there is so much more beneath the surface that is not immediately obvious. You cannot get through life without facing “icebergs”. How do you get round this huge structure? If you’re lucky enough to have a boat or a helicopter, maybe this doesn’t apply to you.

What am I talking about?
I’m talking about Discipline.

Premier Dojang is about life-learning skills. An environment for Children and Adults, Men and Women to learn How to Learn – yes that’s correct; “Learn How To Learn”. Great skills come from Great Practice. But a Practice must be a Habit, not just momentary recollection of something you had to do, perhaps, maybe, could do if you “had the time.”

“Every day of your life is another lesson. If you learn the lesson well and apply it, whether positive or negative, you determine what happens in your tomorrow” ~ David Kofi Awusi

Premier Dojang is a place to learn how to be more confident, be more courteous and it also provides a platform for you to demonstrate to others how they might become more like you – The person You want to become.

This takes work. This takes time. This takes determination and the ability to overcome.

The student that never tires of learning. The student that displays humility and respect to their fellow students, instructor, teachers and parents.

The student who helps others and thinks of others so that we may all become greater versions of ourselves.

There’s a quote by Les Brown goes “It’s not over until you win”
But I believe
“It’s already over if you haven’t the Discipline to try.”

Switch the TV off. Table, Phone off.
Enjoy life. Oh…..
And go practice 👊 🧡
