There is a lot going on in the world right now…

Besides coronavirus, we are faced with a country (and if you haven’t noticed a world) that’s focused on racial issues and I thought I would share a few articles I am reading.

First from famous astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, Reflections on the Color of My Skin at:

…And second, from my new favorite football coach…

(because he is Arizona State University’s football coach) Herm Edwards (this article is from “the Athletic” and you need a subscription, but the part I thought was interesting was the first few paragraphs which everyone can access):

These were some articles I though speak to some things to reflect on as we consider what’s going on outside of our martial arts school, our training, and outside of our house… At KarateBuilt Martial Arts we are focused on building students lives not just teaching kicking and punching so I thought this “big picture” was important :)
