Post whatever you like about our topic here. Please be respectful of other peoples opinions. As an author with a family I'm pretty easy going with product and service announcements as long as they are martial arts related. I'm not one of those people who feel a martial artist should spend 10s of 1000s of dollars and decades of training to bag groceries and give his/her services away for free.

Below is an intro I made up for myspace but it gives a bit of my general background

-----------------------------------------

Aloha;





My name is J. Richard Kirkham. Rick to my friends I graduated from Eastern Illinois University with a dual teacher certification. Physical Education and Physical Education for Special Education. I've been in martial arts now a little over 30 years I've been trained in several kung-fu and karate styles and did a little boxing.





My degree is in physical education with a background in Movement Education, Exercise Phys, Kinese, Alternative Teaching Methods, Behavior Modification with an emphasis on Positive Reinforcement Methodology





Eventually I wrote





Tutoring and Positive Reinforcement Techniques and Methodology for all Parents and teachers Printable Ebook

http://kirkhamsebooks.com/Education/





I spent four years self-employed full time as an in home tutor specializing in students with behavioral problems primarily ADD and ADHD and an in home self-defense instructor





see Bringing The Martial Artist Out from Within

http://kirkhamsebooks.com/MartialArts/





I spend most of my evenings now, when I've not giving private self-defense lessons or tutoring, with my wife Jan and my six year old son Hunter in Honolulu HI.





My wife wasn't the first lady I dated. I've been trained in sales and have been in a sales related health field over 15 years now. When I agreed to help a friend just starting a dating service I was surprised to find out that most guys did not really know how to “sell” themmselves to a date and then keep that special lady by not acting like a caveman.





Thus I wrote Getting to and Through Dates to Meet And Impress That Special Someone by J. Richard Kirkham B.Sc. Behavioral Modification and Sales Expert.

http://kirkhamsebooks.com/Dating/





As my son grew and my family's time needs became greater it became harder and harder to find time to workout. I'm 47 years old as I write this. When my son wants to play I want to make sure I have the energy to say yes and not have to look at his face wIn I say I'm too tired or I'm too busy.





Thus Sprouted





How to Exercise Though Out Your Day

http://kirkhamsebooks.com/HealthNFitness/





Quite a while back, I had written my first printable ebook utilizing my martial arts background and Classes in Kinese and Movement Education





Step by Step Learning Internal Energy Strikes

http://kirkhamsebooks.com/MartialArts/





I included a bonus section in the book on Taking Strikes and Coming Back for More I finally finished a downloadable series of three video clips on the method I developed to teach students





How to Take Strikes Better and Counter-Attack Even When You're Hurt

http://kirkhamsebooks.com/MartialArts/Martial_Arts_Videos/





I also started a collection of free video clips

I look forward to learning and sharing and hope you don't mind the long intro.
