    • Continue to work and develop advance black belt curriculum.
    • Compete in the regional tournaments in both Kata and Weapons

Personal Goals

  • Balance training with raising two children and running two schools.
  • Spending time just playing with my kiddos.
  • Go on dates with my wife monthly. (at least)

Professional / Business Goals

  • Head of Goju-Shorei Systems
    • Create a membership site that serves the schools and students of Goju-Shorei and generates revenue for further development.
    • Work with the Directors to develop new curriculum
    • Film new material

    • Update school websites.
    • Acquire land for future building of a 20000 sqft strip mall that will be the future location of our Spring Hill School


  • Problem:
    • Martial Arts in the Middle TN is low quality and mediocre at best because each school is separated and doesn’t collaborate or interact in anyway with each other.
    • Support for events Tournaments / Seminars doesn’t exist and because of the lack of participation it makes it difficult to bring high caliber Martial Artists to come out to the area.
    • Business practices in the martial arts industry in middle TN are antiquated and don’t represent the industry with integrity or professionalism.
  • Solution
    • Create the Tennessee Coalition Of Martial Artists. This will (slowly) bring the local martial arts community closer together and open up the doors for intelligent dialog and continued training.
    • Through having a pool of martial artists together, we will be able to support each other and encourage our students to attend seminars and competitions locally here in TN
    • My goal is to have a monthly training session at any school who would like to host .  We would train for an hour or so and then have a networking session about business and operations.
  • More details including my action plan will be in my project outline.

I am still adding to this list.

  2. Awesome list! I plan on spending some time today getting mine down.
