Welcome To My Martial Art Blog

Hi! My name is Teah, and this is my martial art blog. My husband, Sifu David Akrish, and I co-own the Akrish Academy of Self-Defense in Bellevue, Wa. I assistant teach the self-defense classes that are led by my husband, and I continue my 10 year study of martial arts, diligently learning about self-defense through Filipino Martial Arts. My complete study of self-defense and martial arts has all happened under the apprenticeship of my husband David.

David is a very unique and eccentric person. He has literally studied martial arts for over 42 years, and teaching professionally for over 30 years... and that is no exaggeration! He started learning at a very early age and his passion has propelled him into the serious study of many styles. He has studied most martial art systems that you have probably heard of and studied a few that you probably haven't heard of (Karate, Tae Kwon Doe, Judo, Aikido, FMA, Wing Chun Kung Fu, Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan and Choy Li Fut Kung Fu... just to name a few). I would like to write more about my husband's martial art study, history and mind, but I will stop here and reserve my thoughts for my next posting. : )

The reason I bring up my husband's history with martial arts is because it is through him that I have been introduced to and enlightened by a study of self-defense. It might seem odd to just study under one teacher--especially since there are so many ideas and philosophies in the world on how to apply martial arts and even what the place of martial arts in the world. You would think that such a huge subject such as Martial Arts, one might benefit from many teachers, but this has not been the case with me. (Perhaps though, I could say that this has been his case.) But my husband's knowledge is so in-depth and vast, and he is just such a talented and gifted martial artist, and he is also such a great teacher because of his ability to communicate and scrutinize, that I have been able to grow greatly in my self-defense ability just studying under him.

I've had the pleasure of studying a few different special subjects that are near and dear to my heart, one of them being music. I play the viola, bass guitar and even have sang in a few choirs. I've also played sports, in which my main love was fast pitch softball. My position was pitcher and I was taught by a great fast pitch coach who taught me a lot of things. I've also studied herbal medicine as it is understood through Chinese Medicine, and I consider myself to be an amateur astrologer and lover of various mystic subjects. I love learning and life and learning about life. But in all of my studies, I consider martial arts to be the hardest! In my journey, you could say it has pushed me to new limits--and helped me to overcome a lot of personal obstacles.

In this blog I plan to share my insights on key self-defense concepts, new and re-discovered laws of physics as applies to the human body, and important thoughts on teaching, learning and our self-defense classes... and I am sure much, much more. I expect that this blog will end up being a journal of my journey through martial arts. I plan to use this blog as a personal tool to help me process and retain important knowledge as it pertains to my martial art study. I'd like to think that, in a few years down the road, this blog may end up in a published book format--which I've dreamed of putting together for years now, but have never been able to find the time to start! I think creating a book, by publishing it on the web step by step, would be a great way to accomplish this!

I fervently believe in the importance of the attainment and continued development of self-defense skill. I believe that everyone, but especially women, should know at least a little self-defense and martial arts. I hope that you will enjoy reading my excerpts and maybe even benefit from them. Perhaps you are thinking of taking a self-defense class in your local community, half way around the world or in our neighborhood. I hope I can help you make your decision. Or perhaps you are an advanced practitioner of another martial art system. I hope that my unique perspective may add and strengthen your study in some way. Regardless of how you got to this page, thanks for visiting and I hope that you won't leave without leaving your mark and adding a comment or two.

  17. Your article is attractive and informative. Thank you for sharing. Any student pursuing nursing should be passionate about it. Even though it is important to attain high scores, there’s a need to go the extra mile in delivery of services to the patients which is a skill that may not be learned in school. Also, nursing students need to understand nursing concepts and be able to implement them in real life. They have to carry out a lot of research especially when they have assignments to handle.

  19. Continue writing great articles like this. I have bookmarked your site and even shared to my friends. Notably, majority of academic institutions require student to write a capstone project as part of their graduation requirements. It is arguably true that writing a capstone project is one of the most challenging academic tasks that you will ever do as a student. This is because when working on a capstone paper, students are expected to synthesize the knowledge learnt over the period in which they have studied a given course in order to solve a real-world problem.
