  • Why are you upset?

    I remember many years ago here in Colorado Springs. I was speaking with a friend of mine in his home. His son came into the house very anger and slammed the door. My friend turned to him and told him "You must be out of your mind slamming my door like you own it." I could not help but to laugh because it sounded just like something I would say to one of my children. "Sorry Dad, I am just mad." "I can see that" said his father "Whats going on." This is where the Learnin' Sermon begins. He told his father that he had decided to quit wrestling. Just hearing that I could see my friend, his father, raise his eyebrows as if saying "Oh Really". "And when did you decide that?" He asked his son. ....

  • A true story of a woman's victory

    Thanks you Ms. W for sharing this with us Hi, Isaac! I’m sorry to be writing you so late, but I owe you a HUGE thank you! To start, I’m fine and I’m not seriously hurt. Today, I had a doctor’s appointment at 11am. As I was walking to my car, I was attacked from behind by a woman who was either on drugs or mentally unstable. Because of the classes I took with you, which were actually designed for teachers on how to respond in an active shooter situation, I immediately remembered how to position myself and I kept yelling at her to “back up”. I also remembered how to block myself from receiving any more hits and kicks. My leg, ....

  • Colorado Springs VA, Spend Time with a Vet

    I thought about a vet whom I had met sometime ago at the VA. He was sitting alone and as usual most seats were taken. "May I" I asked inquiring about the seat beside him "Of course" he said. His shoulders were slouched forward, his balding head had some patches of grey still fighting to remain in place. His wrinkled and scared skin told of a life of much hardship. We sat for some time, neither of our numbers yet being called. "Here alone like me" he asked. "Yes Sir" I replied. "I couldn't imagine making someone wait this long with me." He laughed. "Been some time since I have been called Sir" he said. "Well, Sir, that is shame. You are my senior and much wiser than I, so with ....

  • Have you offended anyone today?

    We live in a world where people seldom speak up about what they believe. If you do, depending upon the topic, you are labeled a "hater", "racist", "against the rights of this group or that group". We, at CFMAF believe in being true to who we are and teaching the students here to do the same. We help people to grow and become secure knowing that speaking up about what they believe and who they are, is in no way putting down anyone else. Some where, at some time, some people have come to believe that by thinking differently about a view or certain topic, makes them some type of troublemaker, or hater, or insensitive. That pressure has suppressed the rights of others who choose to simply be ....

    reviews Five Stars! I have been training with CFMAF for 8yrs now I have personally seen Master C and the staff break their backs to help people. I have witnessed and been a part of how they break down everything for everyone when they enroll. I actually told them that I think it is over kill. They do far more than others to make sure you have an understanding of their curriculum, requirements, and business structure. CFMAF has gone above and beyond to help people who prove to keep their word and demonstrate integrity. I have seen them go to schools to talk with the teachers of kids having problems, hug ....

    review Five Stars I only have good things to say about CFMAF: The instructors are knowledgeable and truly want you to excel and succeed. Accountability and dedication is big. It's a commitment you have to be willing to take. Sadly we live in day and age where things have to be instantaneous. Learning a skill takes time and effort. Unfortunately, I have to remind myself of that at times when I'm tired and all I want to do is sit and watch a movie instead of going to martial arts. But the harsh truth is if I want myself and my family to be better, I have to do better. And that's what the ....

    review Five Stars!! For the past year or so, I've been telling myself I'm going to write an awesome review for the folks at CFMAF. Each time I sit down and write something out, I find myself editing and re-editing because I just cant seem to find the words to express just how truly amazing CFMAF, their staff, the training, and the family really are! Let me start by saying that I have been training with Master Isaac Costley at CFMAF since April of 2014. Our paths crossed after I returned from my third combat deployment to Afghanistan. After perusing the interwebs in search of a quality martial arts ....

  • Are we like the monkey?

    A few weeks ago I was working with a local business here in Colorado Springs. My dealings with them in the past have been very pleasant and equally beneficial to us both. They provide me with a service and/or product, and I provide with money for that task. In other words, we were conducting business. During our course of business myself and an employee of this business, whom I have had pleasant interactions with in the past, had a disagreement. When he was explaining to me why he was unable to supply to me what appeared to be a simple request, his voice began to become louder. Raising your voice does not make your point clearer, it only makes your point, which now appears to ....

  • Loss of Motivation

    Loss of Motivation. We sometime use other verbiage like “I just don’t want to do it anymore.” "I'm bored" or "I don't wanna go." Why does loss of motivation occur? Some reasons for loss of motivation are. 1. Not staying consistent 2. Not revising your goals 3. Not changing or increasing your intensity Parents, you may have come across a child who has decided that he/she just doesn’t want to do something anymore. If you look deeply enough you may find the reason the child does not want to continue something positive is because they have not been attending the activity regularly. Sure there may be other reasons like: 1. They don't want to stop ....

  • Words of Wisdom

    To feel value some need for others to GIVE them their value. The vacancy of self worth cannot be filled by the acknowledgement of anyone else other than SELF. To seek your worth in the approval of another is to remain personally bankrupt. Your value is within you, your worth is what you dictate it to be. A man standing alone...IS STILL A MAN. Quitting is a learned behavior
    And a supported habit.
    Don’t be the teacher or the enabler.
    A public school teacher complained to her co workers about all of her students failing. The next year she taught a different grade. They too failed. When everyone around you are performing badly it is time for you to stop seeing them as ....
