  • The Power of Community

    These are challenging times. People seem divided across so many lines, and isolation is the result. At the deepest level, all of us crave to feel part of something larger than ourselves, something that unites us and makes our problems seem small while making our purpose large. When we have an opportunity to broaden our focus away from ourselves and onto others, things seem more manageable and life more fulfilling.

  • El Paso just became a better place!!

    Why would I say that? Because El Paso Kung Fu just promoted over 30 people to black belt and different degrees of black belt. This means 30 plus people were presented an award that they earned - through hard work, dedication, and sweat. Along the way, they gained some skills, lost some weight, and toned their bodies. It makes El Paso a better place because these people can defend themselves and their families - yes, most definitely.... ...but that's not the main reason. The main reason is joy. Yes, joy! You see, joy is better than happiness because happiness is dependent on happenings. Joy is different. Joy has a deeper well to draw from. 30 plus people became stronger, realized ....

    As an adult, who has time to do Martial Arts? Isn't that just for kids? Shouldn't I be spending what little time I have with my family?
