The What:

Whether you are a martial artist or a fitness enthusiast or someone who simply loves healthy eating, you’ll find some of the best, well-known, reliable products here.  I will showcase everything from sports nutrition supplements and organic snacks, to martial arts uniforms and fitness tech, all the way to the occasional odd and interesting gadget and extra-ordinary doodad.  I’ll also share personal reviews, insights, and great articles.

Note, most of the links to the awesome products in the Minimart are affiliate links, but don’t let that scare you.  All that really means is that when you make a purchase, the company (Amazon for instance) will pay me a small percentage.

The Why:

When you can shop virtually anywhere on the web, why shop here?  As someone who believes in the importance of physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional growth and optimum health through proper diet, exercise, and deep and consistent personal practices, we, you and me, have a shared vision.  Like you, I not only strive to maximize my days and live better, but I also enjoy sharing what I learn with others, and I find encouraging them to think and believe greater, and to do what it takes to be their best, one of the reason I’m here, now.   I genuinely desire to help others become their best and to live their best lives, so my goal with the Martial-Fitness Minimart is to provide you with information, inspiration, and great products that not only enhance your journey, but that you can trust and love.

I research the products I purchase and use, and do my best to buy organic, non-GMO foods and items that do not contain harmful or suspect chemicals such as, but not limited to, fluoride, parabens and phthalates, artificial sweeteners (i.e., sucralose and acesulfame potassium), etc.  So, whatever I share with you here are things I would recommend to family and friend, and would / do use myself.

The Who:

No, not that The Who, but the me, that’s who…

I began my formal study of a traditional Japanese martial art during my freshman year in college in late 1990 and in early 2017, I took a leap of faith and have been teaching traditional martial arts and fitness on a full-time basis.  I enjoy researching and exploring topics ranging from health and fitness, brain science and quantum physics, to relational dynamics, energy, and optimum living.  I believe that we all should be daily evolving toward our true potential; while there will be times when we fall back, or get pushed back, or knocked down, the sum of our steps over any given period of time should be forward.

I am also a writer.  I am currently working to complete the nth revision of my first science-fiction / action-adventure novel.  You can learn more at my writing here: blog.
