Independance and values

A lot of people hate on FMK, on the internet we can see a lot of dislikes and all that. A lot of people doesn't like the way Freddie put things on perspective. Let me put it like this; if you wanted tomorrow, to have the realest, the truest, the most effective Martial Arts School and all that by keeping a sincere relationship with 'The Way' and the people surrounding you, PLUS starting from scratch with barely nothing. You would then probably realize how tough it is to create this Kwoon.

It would be easy to accept all kinds of people in your Kwoon for the money, it would be easy to drop a principle here and there just to go mainstream. But staying REAL from day ONE until your timeline expires would be a hell of a challenge.

We as people in general don't have to be harsh with our values because we don't have a school to represent,   and we don't have students who value our teachings. We as people in general don't have 5 kids to love and educate with a beautiful wife with who we have to maintain a healthy relationship, all that with having a Kwoon, not just your everyday kwoon, a REAL, AUTHENTIC, INDEPENDANT, DEEP and MATURE ONE.

So to everybody who don't understand all that. I won't say fuck you, because it would be too easy to say. I would say just imagine and put yourself in perspective; if you had to wear Freddie's shoes tomorrow, you would probably fall right on your face. Get the man, his family and his students the respect they deserve.
Enough said!

  2. I don't know if this is about the Anonymous comment left on Shi Zu's post, but I did the easy thing and just told him to fuck off. Not that it means a lot or anything, I like what you've said here. Being moderator for the YouTube channel, I see all the hatred, and misunderstanding, and animosity. It drives people absolutely nuts that Shi Zu speaks against MMA. Sometimes, I can almost empathize with them. I mean, nobody came out and publicly blasted FMK on YouTube, so why all the negativity the other way? But then I stop and think about it... no, MMA really has appropriated the name 'martial arts' and are basically ruining it. At least in my opinion. To most people nowadays, martial arts and MMA are synonymous. But the latter has nothing to do with art. Its a commercial sport. That's it. Just another stupid industry, selling competition and violence. That's all it is. Having said that, I don't blame MMA. I see it as symptomatic of deeper problems. But having developed out of those problems, it also feeds into their continuation. It's a mechanism to naturalize and make acceptable a new level of public violence. I don't know. I'm not a sports industry enthusiast in general, I can't stand being a spectator, sitting on the sidelines, getting a kick of accomplishment when I've done absolutely nothing. That's the other thing, I guess... the problem with MMA, and with everything even remotely like it. These commercial industries fill-in as representations of real experience for their fanatical viewing public. Beer boy on the sofa can root on a fight by a soccer player, oh I mean 'martial artist,' and feel like he's accomplishing something himself. Maybe he'll even pick up some of the moves and try them on his girlfriend next time he's pissed off about how much smarter than him she is. Okay... I've said enough

    1. Nobody came out publicly but they be hidding and hitting the dislike button a little too much. What's wrong with the truth? Going against the wind? Today being a sheep is very popular, but fuck it! Why going the easy way? Keep doing your thing, stay positive, stay focus, i encourage you to stay real as the rest of FMK! Keep up the good work!

  3. Great thoughts there Steve and Ryan! There are so many lost souls out there. People are so easily brain-washed by the media in terms of violence, money, and fame. MMA promoters are so retarded! The MMA Fighters are the dumb pit-bull dogs with no brains and are out to be murderers, while heartless viewers are betting on the dumb dogs' lives. Wow, their brain cells all went to waste! Well, the MMA Fighters might as well just kill each other off to a point that there's none left on this earth. Oh, yeah, that would make this world a lot safer and happier place to live.

    1. It's my honor to have you here on my post! You are a great exemple of what a strong woman can accomplish. Having 5 kids, staying active, healthy and beautiful, keeping a balance, it's not giving to everybody to accomplish that! You have a very powerful will. And your cooking looks delicious! Keep up the good work!
