Welcome to Waza.blog! The purpose of this blog is to provide a platform for essays on my pursuit to live a more meaningful life through the various skill-sets from which I obtain value. The focus on self-improvement personified by pursuing Martial Arts has formed the foundations of which my guiding principles are based.  It is for this reason I have chosen to use the word Waza, which can be translated from Japanese to English to mean skill or technique, and is often used in Japaneses Martial Arts.


Waza.blog started as a chronicle of my progression as a Martial Artist; aiming to provide a white belt perspective on training, whilst encouraging self-reflection on my progress. In 2017 I started writing articles on my perspectives of Martial Arts, as a returning white belt; this became regular updates as I became evermore entrenched in to my training, and focused on my daily experiences of Jujutsu, Taekwondo and MMA.
