Happy Veterans Day!
Today is a day that we take a moment to pause and reflect on the service of our veterans and their families.  It gives me cause to think about what the martial arts were in the beginning, a form of self preservation in times of occupation or oppression.  Can you imagine a time when we would have to practice our skills in secret?  Not putting our new move or achievement on Facebook can be foreign to some today.  It is thanks to Veterans that we are able to practice because we want to not because it is necessary for survival.
