Most Tennesseans will have a problem finding the town of Linden on a map, yet it can be called the state's basketball capital. This basketball tradition began in the 1950's when Little Linden, the... More > ultimate giant killer, won three consecutive state championships. According to the NFSHSA, this feat is unparalleled in high school sports history.

A dollar was hard to come by in the Fifties, but it would buy all the gas a family would need for a week, if it had a car. Today's youth will learn that Friday night was the most important night of the week. The gym was the place to be and be seen by young and old. The modern high schooler will learn how it was to live without cars, computers, cell phones, Tivos, and iPods. "Linden is probably the most dramatic high school basketball story in our country's history," said Fred Thompson, former U.S. Senator from Tennessee.< Less

Polls show that people have the misconception that karate lengthens one’s life, when in fact the data shows the opposite (via analysis of over one hundred 8th dans in the East & West). If... More > we notice a truth in the data in art that seeks enlightenment, be it good or bad, it should be discussed & hopefully the results will lead to better outcomes for elite karate-ka in the decades to come. We examine the central topic of longevity & karate by using instructor lifespan data, a review of medical diagnostics & research, longevity research encompassing sports physiology, karate psychology and behaviour patterns which has shown to be tied to longevity. We also discuss some interesting statements on the topic by passed masters such as Itosu of the 1800s, Shito-ryu’s Mabuni, Asai of Shotokan who openly stated health may not go hand-in-hand with budo. Despite the fact that karate provides many upsides for its practitioners, why does it appear to reduce lifespan & what can be done about it?< Less

The game of basketball has evolved over the last generation, but basketball practices have changed very little during my 30 years in the game as a player, coach, clinician, and consultant.... More > Today’s game more closely resembles the game that we played on the playground than the one that we were taught in practices. The 21st Century Basketball Practice is an attempt to modernize the youth and high-school basketball practice and catch up to the evolution of the game.
