I’m a novelist. A number of years ago, I came to Calasanz seeking a teacher. I wanted to master my body…wanted to focus my mind…..wanted to balance my energies to help handle a complex and taxing life. I was studying energy and Chinese Medicine and I’d read a great deal about the philosophy of the Martial Arts. I wanted a teacher, who was creative and philosophical, not just a brute.
When I arrived at the dojo, I felt a little intimidated by the overwhelming maleness of the place, there were very few women in Martial Arts back then. I watched Calasanz train a group of strong young guys and I asked him cautiously, “Can I really do this? He looked me in the eye and said, “How much do you want to do this? And suddenly, I knew if I chose to take those first steps on this journey, Calasanz would be my mentor.
Now, with more than a decade of training under my black belt, he’s not only my teacher, but my friend. And I can say with absolute conviction, not one person has had a more profound effect on my physical evolution than Calasanz.
