March Colour Belt Grading at Art Mason’s Peaceful Warriors’ Martial Arts

By Master Art Mason | News

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!

Fantastic Seminar at Art Mason’s Peaceful Warriors’ Martial Arts

By Master Art Mason | News

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!

Wisdom For the Warrior!

By Master Art Mason | News

This is some wisdom from a friend and mentor Grand Master Keith Hafner of Ann Arbor Michigan. Words to life by!

Proactive vs. Reactive.

A Reactive Person:

1. Relies on chance or luck

2. Feels “victimized”

3. Avoids responsibility for results

4. Would rather have someone else or a group share the responsibility for an outcome

5. Instead of training others, they do the work they should be teaching somebody else to do

6. Treats all tasks alike rather than organizing them by priority

7. Reacts to problems after they occur

8. Assigns blame to outside forces: the economy; the competition, etc.

A Proactive Person:

1. Is always on time and well prepared

2. Learns from personal mistakes; very rarely make the same mistake twice

3. They LIKE taking responsibility

4. They build a competent team

5. Feel comfortable with routines…and sticks with them.

6. Measure their effectiveness by results…not by “busy-ness.”

7. Heads off problems before they occur.
