  • Gi? What's that?

    Since it was created in 1882 by Kano Jigoro of Japan, Judo has become one of the most popular martial arts in the world. It is quite a rigorous and physically demanding sport, appearing in several major international sports competitions. As a result, when partaking in judo training, it is important that a high quality judo uniform, or gi in Japanese, be worn to avoid tearing and damage. Judo uniforms are generally constructed out of 100% cotton, bleached white. Cotton is the best choice for breathability. Care should be taken when laundering, as most judo uniforms are not pre-shrunken and will shrink up to a full size from excess heat. Therefore, washing in cool water and air drying ....

  • The Jedi Code?

    With the new SOLO STAR WARS movie coming out this month, I was reminded by my son of how much of a correlationthe Jedi have with martial arts. While entirely fictional, the enigmatic concept known as “The Force” is based on some very real principles. In the movie, Star Wars, the “Force” is often spoken of by members of an order called the Jedi. The warrior-priests of the Jedi Order served as the main proponents of what they believed to be the core concepts of The Force. The concept and the order are fictional, but the principles by which the Jedi lived their lives are excellent guides to living one’s life, especially amidst all the chaos of the modern ....

    #6 Reason Kids should try our Kids class

    REASON #6 to enroll your child in our Karate program: ?? Improve problem-solving skills ?? Shy kids usually have a hard time working under pressure. In fact, whenever they are put on the spot, many of them shut down. They may even lose their sense of personal motivation. However, when kids are enrolled in a martial arts class, they are taught how to react quickly to situations and how to think on their feet. When sparring with an opponent, there is very little time to deliberate or make slow responses. With time, your child will learn to work under pressure and they will no longer freeze when faced with time constraints. ....

    #5 Reason kids should try our kids class

    #5 REASON to start your KID in our ?? KARATE Program: ?? MENTAL TOUGHNESS ?? Sometimes, children who are physically small are more timid and shy because they feel they cannot stand up for themselves. Martial arts teaches kids that size is not the most important factor in any confrontation. A person who is small but disciplined and hardworking can defeat a bigger person in a confrontation. The child learns that they can overcome any challenges if they are strategic and hardworking, and if they regularly practice their techniques. This skill gives a shy child the mental toughness to conquer other hurdles in their life. ....

  •  in Lafayette - Champagne's Martial Arts - Who's the "Dangerous Kid" of BJJ

    Who's the "Dangerous Kid" of BJJ

    I would consider a 4th Degree BJJ black belt under Master Royler Gracie to be dangerous. But Professor Kid Peligro wasn't always a dangerous black belt. According to him, he was the smallest, worst student who got beat up on the mat so much that he had no choice but to get better. So that's how Gerry Costa earned the nickname "Kid Peligro", the dangerous kid! I've had the pleasure of training with Prof. Kid every summer for the past few years. He's good friends with my Head Instructor Prof. Allen Hopkins. He visits our Team Hopkin's annual summer Training Day in Pensacola Florida. My instructor (Steve Miller) always talked highly of Prof. Kid Peligro and said he was very technical ....
