It has been a long time since I was last at my school in Windsor. Life has been very, very busy for Master Scott and I here in Brasov Romania. Aside from running a small adult student only school here I have been focusing very hard on one of my great passions.
Teaching and promoting Kyusho Jitsu.
I began training in the art and science of Kyusho Jitsu about 2002. It caused a great revolution and much change in the art we teach our adult students today. This study of pressure points was and is a great journey for me!
Recently I was in Spain teaching a Kyusho seminar, and will be returning there are to do another next year. I have great plans for seminar in Europe, where nothing is really very far away. I have not written several more books on pressure points and you can see them all online. We founded a new organization, and Alliance of pressure point students to held promote and establish a method of teaching that will assure linear learning of the most critical of the knowledge.
Master Scott is of course at my side! Currently Kara is here with me in Brasov enjoying a much deserved vacation. And yes we talk a lot of business too! Next summer we are planning a very BIG seminar weekend here for anyone wishing to attend!
Talk to Kara for more information when she returns!

The Warrior’s Path Award is something new at Art Mason’s Peaceful Warriors’ Martial Arts that will be presented to one Junior student and one Senior student each March, June, September and December.
We view all of our students as successful martial artist with warrior spirit, however there are always individuals who put forth that extra effort and level of dedication that merits recognition. The candidates will be nominated and voted on by the teaching staff and the final decision will be made by Master Art Mason and Master Scott Mason.
We encourage all students to train and develop themselves not for awards or public recognition, but to become strong, confident and productive members of the school and society. This is a very exciting aware for
our school and will truly show the Student Creed and our 6 Tenets at work!
March’s Warriors Path Awards go to:
- Jacob Masse—Junior
- Amy Lavoie—Adult
Congratulations on a great job!
Grading Day is a very important day n the life of a martial arts student. They way I have our system setup a student has a grading approximately ever 3 months depending on attendance and performance. It takes about 3 1/2 years to get to our “assistant” Black Belt and then another year to 1st Dan Black Belt.
Students are well prepared and very pumped up for the day ahead. The grading get more difficult and time consuming as rank progresses.
This past Saturday we had 2 graders. I 9 out of 10 times am watching the grading in Windsor via Skype and this was no exception. Both gentlemen had a excellent day!
Congratulations to :
- Jacob Masse – Yellow Belt
- Conall Rose – Yellow Belt and White Stripe
Great job guys!
On Saturday morning our school’s co founder was in town for a VERY rare and special appearance doing a seminar for adult members and guests. It has been several years since Master Curt Mason, 7th Dan Black Belt and co founder of our school Art Mason’s Peaceful Warriors’ Martial Art as well as co founder of our style Hon Sa Mu Sa Hapkido has been on the floor teaching.
Now I watch via Skype for about 60minutes as he took the class from some of our basics. For those of you who missed I am sorry, but I have no idea when or if this chance will arise again as he is opening a commercial dojo in Sudbury and that is a full time plus job!
My thanks to those who participated to make this another great event at out school!
The question has be asked of me when I will next be in Windsor on the floor teaching. Things here are right now very busy so I don’t have an answer for that question. it is will some time yet.
Have a great Sunday!
