Excerpt 2 of 3 Indomitable Spirit

Sagasu Martial Arts and Kids Karate

Indomitable spirit is the spark that gives life. Tennessee Williams once wrote, “I think time is a merciless thing. I think life is a process of burning oneself out and time is the fire that burns you. But the spirit of man is a good adversary.” As long as the indomitable spirit remains, there is little that can defeat anyone. Without the indomitable spirit, hope flies away; life becomes harder to face, even to the point of meaninglessness; there is no laughter, love, pain, or truth.

Adults: Training For More Than Self-Defense

Sagasu Martial Arts and Kids Karate

Adults of all ages turning to Martial Arts for more than self defense.


Greg Silva - President Black Belt Schools International.


I have been involved in the Martial Arts for 50 years now.  I first began because my father wanted me to learn to defend myself.   At that time I was in fight after a baseball game at age 13.   In the following 50 years I was never in another self defense situation.   So why did I continue with martial arts?   Simple, self defense is just one of many benefits of martial arts training.   I happened to love the logic and analytical thinking involved in the training.  I also know that martial arts has kept me more flexible , in shape and confident.   Not to mention the friendships I made and the great spectrum of people I met...
