My Wrestling Team

April 23, 2018
My Wrestling Team

I was prompted to revisit this post from 2011; “My Wrestling Team”: Wrestling. It’s the toughest sport I’ve ever competed in, and I guess you could say it was my first martial art. This was back in the day when students died fasting and sweating trying to make weight. I remember going entire school days […]

The KKK Takes A Beating

I’m sorry, I just love this old photo. It’s from “Old Pics Archive” on Twitter, at this link: https://twitter.com/oldpicsarchive/status/977707909969739776/photo/1?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.covertbookreport.com%2F I wish I knew the actual circumstances and origin of this photo but it is one of the great action shots of my time. I am ranked (Black Belts) in both Korean Karate (that’s right, almost […]

The Utility of Tai Chi Chuan

The Utility of Tai Chi Chuan

Readers of the old “Dojo Rat” blog, which began in the fall of 2006, know that martial arts has been one of my passions for over thirty years. It began with wrestling in high school, progressed through Japanese and Korean Karate, some Aikido blended with Jujitsu, and landed in the soft Chinese arts of Bagua, […]

  • Review: “The Truth About Wuhan” By Dr. Andrew G. Huff
    Want some serious information about the origins of the COVID virus? “The Truth About Wuhan” is the book for you. Dr. Andrew G. Huff was an EcoHealth Alliance Vice President, definitely an insider with specialized knowledge regarding the creation of the Covid virus. The sub-title of the book is “How I Uncovered The Biggest Lie […]
  • Review: The End Of The World Is Just The Beginning
    This book, “The End Of The World..” by Peter Zeihan was quite interesting to read and share. Clearly, I had never heard of Zeihan, mainly because my political analysis has been way different, and it appears he mainly writes for the investor class. With that said, I really liked reading this book. As I wrote, […]
  • Why I Have Stopped Reading “End Of The World” Books
    Why I Am Not Reading “End of the World” Books Anymore I have come to somewhat of a decision, at least for now. I have chosen not to read more “How the world ends” stuff anymore (at least for a while). Here is what I mean; I believe the scenarios as presented, and if they […]
  • Things Were Really Different (Boy I Am Getting Old)
    How Different Things Were Then I write this on Christmas day, 2023. I moved to the island ( in a converted school bus) in October of ’95. I know I sound like an old man, which I am becoming, but things really were different back then. When I first moved here to the island, there […]
  • Review: “Comanches” By T.R. Fehrenbach
    Review – Comanches – by T.R. Fehrenbach This was a fantastic read. There are several versions of “Comanches”, by T.R. Fehrenbach. This book is definitely politically incorrect by today’s standards, but very, very real. The violence committed by both the tribes as well as the whites is well documented. More on that later. I first […]
