Two Old Warriors

Last Saturday two old warriors got together once again, not on the battlefield as so often was the case but together in the interest of Martial Arts.

These battle hardened warriors discussed first their aches and pains, the distance of the road traveled and the people along the way then and most importantly the future of Martial Arts. Who would be there to carry on our vision, what changes would be and could be made.

A living history of the Mountain Academy is available to all of us. All we need to do is ask. Hundreds of years of experience is at our fingertips. I would encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity and feel free to ask the questions.

Mrs. Barrow will be setting up a FAQ section on our web site. If there is anything you would like to ask please ask it. We as the “old warriors” of the Academy will answer these questions to the best of our ability.

Remember that it is the journey that is important.

    As an “old warrior” I appreciate that you seem to have kept the art as it was when we started with Vern all those years ago —
