A Collection of my Articles — To Share the Story Behind my Martial Arts Training

Posted by Second Chance to Live on September 10, 2014

Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. Thank you. Several days ago I posted a video presentation on You Tube: Benefits of Neuroplasticity — My Journey and Development using Martial Art Styles. In response to the video demonstration, I kindly received a comment. I would like to share a line from the comment to introduce the content of this article, ” I was delighted to watch your video. I am a Psychologist working for a brain injury organization and I love reading about inspiring journeys. I assume from your clip that there is a story behind your martial arts training but I wasn’t able to connect to it.”

As I thought about the comment, I decided to pull together some of the articles that I have written since 2007, to share my process and journey in the martial arts. I have included links to some of these articles. As you read through each of the articles, I believe you will gain an insight into some of the lessons that I learned, gained and am learning as I pursue excellence through my training in martial arts. My hope is that as you take the time to read from each of these articles — at your own pace — that you will be encouraged to not give up on your dreams or your destiny, as more will be revealed in time to us in time. As you read through each article and questions come to mind, please send those questions to me.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Craig
