Celebration of Kuroshi-Do Martial Arts System

Kuroshi-do 40th Anniversary Banquet, November 4, 2014, in Queens, N.Y.

I have been to many events over the years, and I must say without hesitation that the Kuroshi-do 40th Anniversary banquet is without doubt probably the best I have ever had the pleasure to attend. Class, style, professionalism, camaraderie ….  I thank all who put this gala event together and look ahead to being associated for many years to come. An absolutely incredible event! I am honored to have been there and to have met many new people that I had only heard the names of. In attendance at the festivities were many notables including Soke Papasan Canty, Soke Hasian Kaleek, Soke Lusayne Steve Alston, Hanshi Nikwan Murphy, Sifu Alan Goldberg, Lisa West, Hanshi Rico Guy, Grandmaster Mychal Sledge, Kysohi Penny Johnson, plus many other contributors to the growth and development of Kuroshi-Do System. Ous. Here’s a few snapshots of the many attendees and martial arts personalities who attended, including myself.

What Happens When We Die

from the wisdom of (KA-ufma-zn)

Disciple: “Master, what happens when we die?’
Master: “Nothing! You don’t.”
Disciple: “We don’t?”
Master: “No. You go to sleep and wake up on the other side.”
Disciple: “What other side?”
Master: “That.”
Disciple: ”What’s ‘that?”
Master: “Exactly.”

My Two Youngest Fans

From two fans.
I was completely blown away by the sweetness and gentility of a “friend’s” two young daughters, who I had sent copies of books to at their dad and mom’s request. That they would take the time to show their appreciation is worth a ton of my admiration for the nurturing shown by their parents. Thank you Michael and Arlene! A special thanks is being sent to Antonia and Rowan.

Curses to Blessings

458a

Think in terms of there not being yin and yang. We, as finite beings regardless of our presumed enlightenment will always have a tendency to levy disparagement (for lack of another word) to cast our angers rationally or irrationally at others who have disturbed our presence of mind. If we consider the Chinese adage of “may you live in interesting times,” the embodiment of the psychic attack towards another would also go intentionally and albeit karmically out from us to another sentient being. In my view I would cast a ‘curse’ at a target and want it to be as a blessing in that it fulfills my desired intent without undue malice as a ‘go around, come around’ while being self-construed to the other as a gift.
