8.11.14: I chat with folks from Class Dojo, a really simple and helpful classroom management app that pretty much saved the end of my school year as a Kindergarten teacher. Dojo is also releasing a new messenger feature that can be used to communicate directly, privately, and securely with parents and/or caregivers. In fact, this release was first announced to the public @ the Chalk Face, and I was happy to support one of my favorite apps on the market for education.
Sunday August 24th, 2014. 6 pm Pacific Time.

Condensed from bio, by Masaad Ayoob:
Cliff Stewart knows his stuff. I’ve worked with many of his contemporaries who have studied under such masters as Dan Inosanto, and at the same time Cliff was there. The martial arts world can be a jealous place, with more than its share of prima donnas. Yet, from Graciela Casillas to Paul Vunak, each of Cliff’s contemporaries I’ve spoken with gives Stewart the highest praise. It’s a rare man who can be that well liked and that highly respected at the same time in such an ego-charged environment. It says a lot for the grace and professionalism of Casillas and Vunak, but it says even more about Cliff Stewart.
Cliff Stewart possesses an awesome degree of knowledge and destructive power. The point he drives into his W.A.R. students is that possessing power doesn’t mean that you have to use it. Often, he makes clear, the greatest expression of that power is to dominate a threatening situation to the point that you don’t need to unleash it. Avoidance, he points out, is the ultimate victory.
