Time - Our most precious asset

"If you love life, don't waste time, for time is what life is made up of." - Bruce Lee

no time like the present

Time is our most precious commodity. It’s our richest treasure. It’s the one thing that once gone, you can never get back. Money comes and goes, and material possessions are always replaceable.

Most of us do not know how much time we’re going to get, but we can be sure that every breath we take, we certainly have less left. When it gets down to it, we can only do two things with our time; we can spend it, or we can waste it.

When we apply that truth to the people in our lives, there are people worth spending our time, and there are people who waste our time. The same goes with activities. Some are wise investments of our time while others are time wasters.

Looking back

As I reflect on my own life, I see many places where I’ve wasted my time with some people and activities (or nonactivities), but martial arts were never in the wasted time category. The focus acquired got me through school with good grades. The discipline and self-control got me through 20 years of military service, not to mention the fortitude to get through bad times in my life. Martial arts got me through bullying issues and taught me problem solving skills. The friendships forged in the dojo are the best in my life. My ability to recognize and ponder this truth about time also came from my martial arts training.

Be Generous with people, brutal with time

One point in writing this out is to get people thinking about how they use their time. Another point is that it’s never a waste of time to put yourself or your children in martial arts. It’s always time well spent!

This place is great! Charles and his team have fantastic programs for kids. When we started our 3.5 year old son, I didn’t know what to expect. He quickly adapted to the classes and now loves going. Our 2 year old son loves watching and will start as well as soon as he turns 3. Innovative Martial arts also hosted their birthday parties. The kids had a blast doing different activities throughout the birthday party. Can’t say enough good things about this place, and what they teach!

Innovative Martial Arts Academy (IMAA) is the best place to take martial arts. Charles Falk, the owner, and his staff do a great job teaching martial arts to the students and teaching each student to be confident and disciplined. My son has been with IMAA for eight years - he has earned one black belt and is working on his second.

Not only are the staff amazing, but there is a mix of fun and learning in the curriculum. My 5 year old daughter absolutely loves this school. She has learned respect and many other aspects making her more focused and well behaved. I definitely recommend this school for you or your child.

Great school with wonderful teachers. My daughter has a great time learning and everyone is friendly. There is even an adult class that allowed me to try to see if I liked it and everyone was very patient with me. I am thankful to have my daughter be a part of the Innovative Martial Arts Academy in Wake Forest and know she is benefiting from it in more than one way. It amazes me how fast she is learning and how hard she is trying. They have her trying to develop at her fullest with her mind, body, and spirit. I would recommend this school to anyone interested in martial arts.

Wonderful place for not only skill development but also personal development. Owner and instructors genuinely get to know students and families and care about them. The lessons learned will provide character growth as well as martial art skills. The owner is also a long time student of many different martial arts, he didn't just buy a franchise, and tries very hard to live what he teaches the students. Proud to have been in this dojo family for 6+ years and proud of the friendships we have made there!
