"All Abouth the Blade" Workshop!

Fantastic workshop today in Detroit organized by our Associate Jermaine for the members of his Kali-Silat/Handgun study group.  Jermaine (kneeling) is an NRA-certified pistol instructor as well as a dedicated student of Silat for many years.  It was great to work with his crew of serious (and street-wise!) martial artists.  Thank you Jermaine and friends, and thanks to my students who came by to train and lend a hand.  I'm looking forward to the next workshop!

From Jermaine:

"The 'All About The Blade' seminar had a very productive beginning. I would like to thank everyone for coming and participating, we most definitely learned a great deal of strategies and tactics today and as usual Guro Jeff Davidson was magnificent and detailed in his training. Whether its philosophy of use or just simply teaching a technique he was right on point. If you paid and couldnt make it today we are putting a small catch up course together for your convenience. Once again, thanks!"

Today's Lesson from: Rabbi Moses Cordovero

"The Essence of Divinity is found in every single thing—nothing but It exists. Since it causes every thing to be, no thing can live by anything else. It enlivens them; its existence exists in each existent.

Don't attribute duality to G-d. Let God be solely God. If you suppose that The Boundless, Infinite Divine emanates until a certain point, and that from that point on is outside of it, you have dualized -  G-d forbid!

Realize, rather, that The Boundless Infinite Divine exists in each existent. Do not say, "This is a stone and not G-d." G-d forbid!

Rather, all existence is G-d, and the stone is a thing pervaded by divinity."

- Moses Cordovero (Shi'ur Qomah, 206b)
