Sections of this magazine are primarily divided into Twelve Topics. Below are brief descriptions of these, published monthly.
Sensei Says : Here we have experienced martial-art masters sharing their wisdom and experience. These include Soke, Officials of Federation/s and Association/s, Sensei from local and multi-State Dojos and students who just earned the approval of their Sensei to teach his students.
Kumite Analysis :
Kumite tests the combat skills between students of the same grade. It
is essential that we practice it to hone our skills and have no fear or
failure. Its always an honor to have a capable opponent at the Dojo as
well as at District-level, State and National level competitions.
Without Kumite, the martial-artist is incomplete in his training for the
belt he wears.
Eternal Student :
Success is a habit to be practiced, not a destination. Therefore, the
student of martial-arts is a student for life.... always pursuing
perfection and addition to his art. One also has to adapt to changing
society and lifestyle. The master of martial-arts is a student who is
still discovering new skills and theory.
