General Update: May 2013

What a nightmare of a time it has been these many months since my last true update to the project. In that time I have logged an unbelievable number of hours at work and have continued my martial art studies. In addition to this I have been striving to improve my education in the topics of public safety, law, ethics, Infosec and of course improving my knowledge in all things martial.

I have slowly been working to add some items to my home to have sort of a home dojo it is my hope to have a Mook Jong and Body Opponent Bag added in the next few months.

I also hope to in the next few months purchase a handheld camcorder and a GoPro with the hopes of adding a series of videos soon enough! I have so many topics I have been meaning to write about including the boston bombings, several books I want to reccomend, several products I want to review as well as more martial arts content but its just been so difficult to find the time to cover these things.

I am going to probably start writing more of these "general updates" to try and break up the theory and technical write ups so that I don't feel like every single article is a dissertation that I need to pour my heart and soul into. This will give the readers an insight into my life and also allow me to publish more content on a more consistent basis without burning out. If you guys could only see the number of drafts I have on the go..

For now I will leave you with a quote from Miyamoto Musashi

"there is nothing outside of yourself that can ever enable you to get better, stronger, richer, quicker, or smarter. Everything is within. Everything exists. Seek nothing outside of yourself"
