|QUOTING GLEN DOYLE|
"A perfect technique is a technique that works."
"In martial arts YOU ARE FORGED IN THE SHADOW OF YOUR OWN WILL... no train... no skill."
"Kung Fu is a circle. It has no beginning and no end."
"If you fight, you're gonna get hit."
"If you can't take a punch, don't fight"
Stealing the Energy: "If I'm standing in front of somebody, there's an energy focus. To steal the energy, one strikes that area or they strike a different area, they take the energy away from where it's strong, and then you can attack where the energy is now weak."
"...if the only ideas that run through the mind [when deciding to take up a martial art] are to 'kick some butt' or to impress the 'babes' - please…go bowling."
"Your martial art ability is the echo of yourself."
Forms: "THE MAIN RULE... KNOW WHAT EACH AND EVERY MOVE IS FOR, AND UNDERSTAND THAT YOU DO NOT FIGHT IN FORM. When the move is needed... it'll be there!"
"First form, then speed, then power."
"Know yourself...sooner or later your style will know itself within you."
"Learning is growth; growth is evolution."
"Be like a circle: continuous, ever-forward, improvisational."
"From within one small warrior spreads thoughts and words that will reach hundreds - these hundreds will then utter the very same words reaching thousands-and those thousands then shall cry out these very same thoughts, which will soon encompass the world! What will this small warrior say?"
"Once you believe in yourself, there is no mountain, there is only a pathway."
"Wishing: is the end result of one's avoidance of total sacrifice to reach a certain goal or objective."
"So, why shouldn't I keep reaching for the light? It's a really easy thing to do, because the light is there, you can see it, you reach for it. There shouldn't be any kind of big dilemma about it - just keep reaching for it. If somebody cuts off my arm, well then I'll reach with the other one!"
"Never walk away from yourself."
"I'll never let another individual affect the way I live my life or sway my personal energy in any way, shape, or form!!"
"I could huff and puff and go out of my way to try and convince ya!! but as my father always said 'People who need convincing--will never be there when they're needed most.'"
"Ever-changing means ever-forward, and ever-forward means swift adaptation or extinction."
"When your number is called... it don't matter how fast you are... you gotta dock the boat and get off for the next rider."
"Whatever avenue we use to magnify life's greatness (ie. martial arts), just remember... The ACTUAL is limited, the POSSIBLE is immense."

"Rumours should be treated like Pauly Shore films...
"I have no wife to bother me life... no lover to prove untrue... the whole day long I laugh at this song and paddle me own canoe!!" (The Wolfe Tones)
Favorite Cartoon: The Flintstones
"I learned a great deal while teaching. Teaching is a great way to learn."
"I don't look for anything when I train someone... their best qualities come to me... they (qualities) show themselves... It's the way you teach that should be addressed... when an individual listens with 'confidence' rather than through 'intimidation', you would be amazed at what comes up to the surface."
"The key to being a good instructor is catering to the individual -- but not taking away from the style you are teaching."
"You are not allowed to say, 'I can't' in my classroom. You can say 'I'm having trouble', 'I'll get it eventually', or even 'Glen's a moron. He's not teaching it right because I'm not getting it'. Anything but 'I can't' "
"When teaching... an instructor has to be prepared to learn."
"Teaching is like a moment in time... no two events are ever the same."
