We are meeting with Ed Samane, the founder of The Pro Martial Arts franchise system.
The Pro Martial Arts System is the result of decades of training and teaching experience. It encompasses an exciting and diverse curriculum of martial arts techniques drawn from the Korean arts of Tang Soo Do, Tae Kwon Do and Hapkido.
What sets Pro Martial Arts apart from the average martial arts school is the addition of our inspiring and motivational Life Skills Training program. Pro Martial Arts students acquire more than just Black Belt kicking and punching skills: they learn the value of a Black Belt Lifestyle, a lifestyle of quiet confidence, poise, and fulfillment. Pro Martial Arts students are taught how to set and attain goals, be their own greatest advocates and proactively pursue and achieve success in all aspects of life.

Ed McGrath's School of Isshin-ryu Karate-do & Kobu-do presents our Martial Arts Talk Show. Host Dan Vena invites martail artists to call in and talk about their practice. We invite students to call in and ask questions and discuss training procedures with progress based results. Our show is 30 minutes live and BTR allows us to keep talking for up to 45 minutes archived. So take advantage of our platform and advertise your school.
Our main goal is to promote unity and harmony amoung all martial artists no matter what discipline or style. As a traditional dojo we practice the curriculum developed on Okinawa by Shimabuku Tatsuo Sensei. His style of Isshin was developed by his learning of Goju and Shorin. We here in the United States practice the curriculum brought home by Don Nagle Sensei. (USMC-DEC:) His teachings have spread throughout the world since that first dojo in Jacksonville, North Carolina. My Sensei Ed McGrath (USMC-RET:) is the inheritor of Don Nagle's AOKA continues to focus on building the camaraderie that existed in that original dojo. So here we are on BTR asking you to call in and talk about your experience.
Call in and speak live to the host.

Join us tonight as we unravel the metaphysics of the mind through the breath and perception. The saying goes as above so below, as within so without? No doubt. So in all serous disease states , we find a low oxygen state. Low oxygen in the body is a sure indicator of disease. Through the arts of Taoism, one can achieve in the body, a state of deep relaxation, which allows one to breathe fully which is needed to over come oxygen deficiency. Some of the symptoms are; Mental stress, Emotional stress, and Physical stress, which produces body weakness, muscle and body pain, depression, dizziness, irritability, fatigue, memory loss, irrational behavior, circulation problems, poor digestion, acid stomach, infections, tumors, bacterial, viral and parasitics infections.
Through the Taoist practice of breathing deeply one is able to prevent and progressively overcome illness and stress at all levels by increasing oxygen intake on the cellular level.
