Be Yourself (Just Don’t Be Mean)

“Be the weird kid.

Be the funny kid.

Be the quiet kid.

Be the athletic kid.

Be the theatre kid.

Be the numbers kid.

Just don’t be the mean kid.”


“As in life, so too in budo. As in budo, so too in life.”

-Robert Van Valkenburgh is co-founder of Taikyoku Mind & Body and Kogen Dojo where he teaches Taikyoku Budo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
