Welcome Back to My Training Blog

Last year, while training for the International Chinese Martial Arts Championship, I did a little experiment on - a training blog.

In it, I chronicled my preparations to win the Southern Style Grand Championship. It was a good run, even though I bailed on the tournament. I'd just been laid off from my job and didn't want to keep spending money on preparing and attending the event.

Still, at the advice of Don Weiss, a good friend, training partner and instructor in Hung Ga and Yau Kung Mun styles of Kung Fu, I did resume the blog for a while. It enabled me to organize my thoughts about training and kept me accountable to the half-dozen or so people who actually read it.

Life got in the way. I developed a case on bronchitis. My studies at Hillsborough Community College and efforts at starting a freelance writing career took up a great deal of my time and energy. Even when I was training, I didn't have time to chronicle my efforts.

Well, that's going to change!

Everyone needs accountability. We need people to whom we can share our progress, to brainstorm with, and to kee ourselves honest.

So what do am I willing to give for your help in keeping me honest? I propose a trade. You keep me honest, and I'll do my best to keep you informed. I'll share with you all the latest information on personal fitness, health, inspiration and motivation. I want more than just another personal blog. I want to create something that helps others as I'm helping myself.

Let's see what we can do to help each other. After all, no one does it alone.


  1. Glad you like it. I'm just starting out, so I hope to have lots more cool stuff here.
