My son has done 5 classes so far and is loving every second of them. He has adhd and the instructors knew it going in, they've all been very nice and very patient with my son, making sure he understands what is expected of him. I fully trust that he will learn a lot from his experience here.

Amazing place! The instructors and even the other students are great. The facility is super nice, clean and really big. Can't say enough good things. No matter your age, fitness level or goals, it's a fantastic place to learn Brazilian jiu Jitsu, striking arts, self defense, and most importantly make new friends.

There is nothing better than the sense of accomplishment I leave this building with. The facility is clean and top notch. The instruction team is able communicate direction to every student regardless of experience level. I can't recommend this school enough as a place to better yourself as a a person.

My wife Mary and I have been doing the Fitness Kick-Boxing at Tai-Kai for 5 years now! And we both love it, it has put me in the best shape of my life and I am 73 years young because of it! Pat yourself on the back Ken, your school is worth it! Sheena and Mike Bidwell Fitness Kick-Boxing classes are without a doubt the best! What is neat about them is they teach us the proper technique. This is very important, becasue if you learn how to do it right your workout improves ten fold.

I’ve trained all over the world and Tai Kai is one of the best places I’ve trained, hands down. The facility is spectacular, they have a bunch of really great teachers and the student body is fun and welcoming. I love this place!

Tai Kai is so much more than a place to work out and get in shape. Sure, Tai Kai offers excellent Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Kickboxing, Muay Thai and other classes... and it’s filled with so many knowledgeable teachers and instructors. But more than that, it’s a family, a home, a place to find encouragement and a place to find acceptance. I’m so happy to have found this place, trying my first class was the best decision I’ve ever made.

My kids started training jiu jitsu here earlier this year, and after watching them train and peeking in at the adult jiu jitsu classes, I decided to try it out, too. Best decision I ever made! The instructors are phenomenal in both the kids’ and adult classes, and the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. I’ve met several incredible people while training here and love coming in to learn and get in better shape. If anyone is intimidated by jiu jitsu (or really, any of the other martial arts classes offered at Tai Kai) this place will set you at ease with a comfortable environment and training partners who are supportive and want you to do your best!

It’s All About Perspective! by Kevin Seaman

 

What you say to yourself and others (the quality of your internal and external communication) has a lot to do with your representation of any given event. We have seen athletes lose, fail a shot, make an error or perform poorly, and talk about the event or beat themselves up for days. We’ve also had the experience of listening to someone lament over what they should have said or done in a critical situation that didn’t turn out well for them. Sometimes these individuals may even believe their life would have been different “IF” they reacted differently. While this maybe true, it is history, time that cannot be reversed. In most cases the best course of action is simply taking responsibility for our actions at that moment in time, learn from it and move on. Taking responsibility is one of the things we can do to empower ourselves. If we believe we have NO control over the situation or experience, we feel disempowered due to our use of an External Locus of Control. We see what has happened as a fault, one that is out of our hands. In contrast, when we perceive an experience from an Internal Locus of Control, we feel empowerment, because we are in control of our perception of the outcome. We can take responsibility without shifting judgement, creating a blame that it is not our fault or “What If” scenarios. We take responsibility and move on. I had my car broken into recently. I left it unlocked in my driveway and a thief ransacked it in the middle of the night. I took responsibility for it. Why? Because I know that thieves exist. I let my guard down. I know my possessions are not secure if I leave my car unlocked and although I did that unknowingly, because of that I was ultimately responsible for the outcome. I took responsibility, made some changes to correct my future actions and moved on.

Now, think about it, if something bad happens to you, do you review it your mind over and over, talking to other people, and telling them how awful it was? If so, I have a question for you: Did you experience this event once, or over and over? Wasn’t once enough? Now remember, your subconscious thought process does not actually distinguish between thinking about something and the actual event. It is in fact considered real either way. This is one of the qualities of visualization, so utilize it in a positive way. Focusing on your problems creates a ripple effect, magnifying the experience in your mind. Focus on your solutions, not your problems. Solution oriented individuals learn from these experiences, rather than focus on them. To evolve as a person, we must learn to become less Problem Focused and more Solution Oriented. It is the Solution not the problem, which we have control over!

The things you can do something about, put your heart into solving or resolving. The things you can’t do anything about, let go of. Focus on what you want, not what you don’t want. Be solution oriented and succeed more and more at everything you do.

“Ultimately, success is not measured by first place prizes.It’s measured by the road we have traveled,
how you dealt with the challenges
and stumbling blocks you encountered along the way.”
