Hi, my name is Ed Kizun and I am an SDTS Elite member.
It seems some of you need a strong-shot of morale. Look, I’m no big deal, ok? I was born with cerebral palsy, and with a strong Mom and other family members, wrestled in high school, graduated college and accumulated two master’s degrees, tutoring history and economics. All this before I gave up driving after three right eye surgeries, a stroke at 42, and cervical spine surgery in 2014.
I also earned my third degree black belt in ninjutsu, and despite intense rehabilitation, am pretty much in a wheel-chair.
That did not stop me from taking up SDTS. Why?
I like a worthy challenge. It pushes me on. SDTS is simple, direct, to the point. It’s much more than some martial art. It’s an aggressive mental mind-set. I’m at this point in life have little use or sympathy for “whiners,” “excuses,” etc. Sure, we all get down here-and-there, but let me ask you a question: You only live once in this current life. Whether you’re “normal,” single, married, crippled up from something, so what? Maybe most of your ‘friends’ are gone, busy, whatever.
Each day when I awake I can see, feel, pet and feed my cat look out the window, see the birds. Drink coffee. I do some SDTS, modified calisthenics, modified stretching. And I know I must be vigorous, aggressive. Face it, whether it’s true self-defense ( like SDTS) or whatever, with the time you have left on this earth, you must live your life wisely, redeeming the time and avoid negative and energy-drainers like the plague!
