We would like to welcome Mr. Don Worrell as an instructor for our Friday Night Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class.

Waiving motivation and unbreakable discipline
With the end of another year and the start of a new one often comes the perpetual haste to begin
a slew of New Year’s resolutions. This might be something like, ‘I’m going to give up sugar’,
‘go running every day’, ‘spend less time on my phone’, or ‘ put 20% of every paycheck in my
As with most people, we keep to these empty promises for the first week or so before finding
some excuse as to why we've given up on the goals that we so eagerly set for ourselves.
Sometimes this is due to starting off with too big of a task right off the bat. Someone who wants
to quit smoking, for example, might best find success through a gradual weaning process rather
than giving it up cold turkey. Other times, a lack of personal motivation is the culprit for our
Motivation works as our internal drive or reasoning for why we act in a certain way. Someone
who wants to save money for a new car might be motivated to work more hours. The end goal of
getting a new car thus influences...more

RMAI NEWS UPDATE
Happy Monday everyone!
Congrats to everyone promoted in last week's testing cycle!
First thing I'd like to mention is my sincere thanks and gratitude to everyone who participated in the Flyers Demo this Saturday. I had a great time preparing and planning with all of you. The first few weeks we were kind of bouncing around different ideas, but in the last month it really came together and all of you worked so hard. Your professionalism and adaptability is a testament to the passion for martial arts you all possess. The hockey team on the other hand sadly didn't win, and I feel bad that I had to leave early as Max was not feeling well. But I wanted to make sure I said a few words of thanks to you. You did a great job, PILSUNG!
This week is the last training week of 2022! Next week we have our annual Winter Break. I may be here occasionally throughout next week to take care of some maintainance and office work. If that happens I will let people know if there is OPEN MAT time available. Other than that, we will be closed for regular...more

RMAI NEWS UPDATE 12/5/2022
Just a few items to go over about this week. Before I do that, I wanted to congratulate those who tested for their new Black Belt Ranks this past Saturday. Noah Mason, John Schuld, & Todd Liebel all represented RMAI well with their efforts in a challenging 3 hour exam. Grandmaster Kwon, as well as the other local association Masters witnessed their intensity and martial arts skills. We expect to release the results of the exam within the next few days. Again, congratulations to those people, we are all very proud.
