Your Buddies & Ours

Did you notice that Buddy week came on the heels of Sigung Richard Bustillo’s visit? We love having you learn from and get to know one of our friends and mentors right before you introduce your friends to us.

Sensei Price, although he was regrettably ill for most of the seminar weekend, was happy to hear CMAA students lived up to his expectations of hard work, manners, enthusiasm and quest for knowledge!! He was even happier to be back at work to greet your buddies at the school.

What We’re Working On

Ron Clark’s The Essentials was recently talking about speaking up if you’re being bullied. Now, we’re moving on to the lessons about standing up for your beliefs and being positive and enjoying life.

Henry David Thoreau said, Live your beliefs and you can turn the world around.

Did you know that positive thinking can actually improve your health? The Mayo Clinic lists these advantages to trying to keep a positive perspective:

  • Increased life span
  • Lower rates of depression
  • Lower levels of distress
  • Greater resistance to the common cold
  • Better psychological and physical well-being
  • Reduced risk of death from cardiovascular disease
  • Better coping skills during hardships and times of stress
