To become the best you can study, to be the best you can practice.

Think about it, fill your mind with relevant information and your knowledge will grow, you will develop a basis of information on the subject, you will have a basis of information to compare others knowledge to, you will have a basis of information to base your decisions on, you will make yourself a better person.

I have books and DVDs for you to use as as personal reference library to formulate your martial arts knowledge from. I promise you will become stronger person for it. Learn history, basics, application.

Omega Three's

If you hate fish or want to avoid worrying about toxicity, you can find omega-3 fatty acids in flaxseed, walnuts, and pumpkin seeds. Or take a daily fish oil supplement. Like monounsaturated fat, omega-3 fat improves heart health by helping to keep cholesterol levels low. It can also aid in stabilizing an irregular heartbeat and reducing blood pressure, and it acts as a natural blood thinner, reducing the risk of blood clots and stroke. You can't live without omega-3 fat, either ― your brain, which is 60 percent fat, needs it to function properly. So eat it up! Everyday Health
