Martial Arts On & Off The Mats

I realize I have not been able to attend classes as of late. This is due to changing life situation & work schedules combined with out of town travel, pet sickness and my own healing. But, this is not to say that I have been out of training mentally and away from the Elite Training Center family spiritually.

As an example, a couple weeks ago while working at computer I heard the sound of screeching tires and crunching metal. My Elite training and what we learned in summer camp sprung into action. Before the sounds had stopped I had phone in hand and was dialed into 911. This pics below tell the story. As all of this was happening my throughs were ” I always knew this could happen, it’s happening now, and I am prepared to handle it”.

I was one of first on scene. Seeing others were already tending to the injured, I jumped in as primary communications and traffic coordinator. I was able to assess that no one was in danger due to the wreck on a busy road, lots of water and power pole. It was pretty amazing how a group of people sprung into action. We quickly identified a small group of responders, what our roles were and everyone stayed calm for the victims.

Throughout this whole incident I continued to remind myself of what we had learned at camp. While not on that mat with you all I continue to build upon the training I’ve received at Elite and try my best to apply to my everyday life. Sometimes being away from something gives you a greater appreciation for what you have. I hope to be back on mat soon.

Hope all is well with you and the school. I’ve been checking in on the blog to keep up as well. It’s nice to be across the country and read about whats happening. Give my best to everyone.
