Hey Enter Shaolin family! It’s Jamie and I am so happy to be back home and interacting with you all.
It was awesome to see some of our family whom we have not seen in years. One of the highlights of my trip was when people would ask me what I am doing now for a living…
I got to share how and way Sifu Larry and I started Enter Shaolin and how we were able to make it all come together thanks to Sifu Phu’s extensive knowledge.
There were two takeaways I got from family asking me about what I do…
- How blessed I am to be able to finally train and do what I love for ‘work’ while helping others around the world train too!
- How sad it is, that few people do what they love as their ‘work’ or even as a hobby for that matter.
I reconnected with my Uncle Bobbie, my mother’s brother. I haven’t seen or talked to him in a good 6.5 years. When we started talking, he said, “Wow that’s awesome, not everyone does what they love. I always knew you would go places.” Needless to say that filled my heart with joy.
Are you doing what you love for work? If not, may I ask… Why not?
Life is so precious, choose to make each day filled with the people, places and things that you love. Choose to love more and be more.
Comment below and let me know what things you love and how you are implementing them into your life. You don’t have to have a ton of money or time to do most things. The biggest thing you need is a burning desire and the willingness to take action on that desire!
Speaking of passion! I know we all love Kung Fu here and the training Sifu Phu Ngo shares with us… I am so excited to be able to share with you this weeks updates!
One of our members wanted to know when we would be adding some lessons on defending against kicks. So, Sifu Phu created several lessons helping you do just that.
These lessons are best with a partner, however can totally be practiced solo as well.
Without further adieu…
Here is what’s new at Enter Shaolin:
Ngo Dac Na
- Defense Against A Front Kick From The Outside
- Intercepting A Sidekick With Your Lead Leg
- Dealing With A Sidekick From The Inside Once Executed
- Dealing With A Sidekick From The Outside Once Executed
Enjoy your training!

I love my Lord, my family, the church, exercise, and learning Kung Fu. I can probably think of a lot more too!
Jamie Pelaez says

Hi, Jamie. Glad to hear that you were able to reconnect with your family, and that you are able to pursue your martial arts passion. I am also pursuing my martial arts passion and glad to be a member of Enter Shaolin. I have always been a creative person and my latest projects are 50’s style jukeboxes that I design and build and hopefully will be able to sell. They have LED lighting and CD/radio and I wired the lighting to RF wireless remotes. Although they take a long time to make I hope to sell them as a supplement to my income. I even built a full sized one for my house and it has a 5 CD/radio and mp3 built in and I use it every day.

Hey Mark, that sounds really cool.

Life is too short to not do what you love. I realized this and I am currently in school learning physical therapy to change my career. I also signed up for this site to learn qigong, tai chi and kung fu!
I’m happy for you Jamie…keep up the good work!
Jamie Pelaez says
I love your spirit sister Virginia! I am so happy you are also making the changes in your life to be able to do what you love. I pray that what you learn here at Enter Shaolin will help you greatly in your endeavors. 🙂
