    CLASS DOJO @ the Chalk Face

    in Politics

    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.

    Dynamic Dojo Talkradio: Guro Rocky R. Twitchell

    in Sports

    Sunday May 3rd, 2015. 6:00 pm Pacific Time.


    (Full bio http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Rocky_Twitchell_SR.)


    With a background in various arts, in Rocky R. Twitchell's early years he studied under a Savate Instructor named Shane Milone'.Taking Rogh & Tumble Savate to stop bieng picked on by bullies at High School was his main reason for taking the lessons given by Shane Milone', but those Savate lessons would be the foundation for many other Instructors in the years to come. Once Rocky learned a few concepts from the Art of Savate, (basically just stand up to the bullies) they would eventully leave him alone. By his Junior year in High School he had the confidence to stand up for himself and he had the confidence to stand up for others if they were picked on by bullies. Portola High School, located in Portola CA also had boxing during Physical Education once a year and his skills from Savate plus the boxing from P.E., planted a seed in his mind that would slowly grow to training along side World Boxing Champions and World Class Martial Arts Instructors.Graduating from Portola High School he found himself living and training with his father Rocky H. Twitchell in Southern Utah. Once he moved in with his father and found a place to hang his punching bag the rest was History.

    Dynamic Dojo Talkradio: Open forum-"When does martial discipline become 'abuse'?

    in Sports

     Join us sunday May 17th at 6 pm pacific time as we discuss a touchy subject..."when does discipline in the martial arts turn into abuse'?


    Its a difficult subject to pin down,because context changes the meaning between 'discipline' and 'abuse'. As martial artists we know of the 'pushup consequence'....act innapropriately or disregard a rule, and a teacher would sometimes drop a student for 10 or 20 pushups as a 'wakeup call'....but if the teacher singles out a student for pushups, publicly berates them for the tiniest of infractions, or even withholds rank promotion for unspecified reasons or reasons that have no merit, that is considered abuse. 


    Many people call it "old school", but where is the line drawn between 'old school' and emotional/mental/physical abuse? Let's hear your thoughts, give us a call at (347) 677-0699
