I’m a Second Degree Black Belt Now!

Posted by tpegonline on July 27, 2013

As far as I know, we only live once so I am trying to make the best of life by having fun and pursuing my interest. Martial arts and combat sports are two of my interests.

It has been a 20-year journey. Not that it should take that long, but with work, school, family responsibilities, injuries and health issues over the years, it has been a long road. My ranking is in an eclectic form of Jujutsu under the instruction of David S. Bunch (4th Degree) affectionately known to many as Sensei Buddha.

When I got promoted, I had to do a demo portion for my main instructor, Sensei Buddha, plus I had to write a thesis on my philosophy of self-protection and how it caters to my target population — 40+ year-olds that are busy professionals with families. This demographic doesn’t have a lot of time or energy to to commit to their training.

Below is the slideshare presentation of my thesis. I hope that you can grab a few ideas from it. Thank you!
