biography, which is now posted on our site.
|12/17/2009: Merry Christmas everyone!
I hope all is well with you and your family. Thanks again to
everybody who has helped build and promote our website by providing pictures, videos, information,
articles, advice, and more. We launched this website in November 2005.
It has grown so much since then and represents all the different LOTUS
teachers and schools worldwide. However, I noticed that for the year
2009, we had approximately 3,148 less internet visits than what we had for
the year 2007. Instead of more visits we had less. That
surprised me for several reasons: (1) each year more people are gaining
access to the internet, (2) each year we should be getting more LOTUS
students and more black belts, (3) this non-partisan website has received
the input of so many different LOTUS instructors and students that it should be the website promoted on business cards, flyers, dojo
posters, etc. For this website to continue to grow and represent all
LOTUS members, I encourage you
to reference our website when possible and appropriate, and also contribute
by joining our forum and emailing me pictures,
videos, and articles when applicable. Thank you.
|05/02/2009: Greetings everyone!
Many of you know that I recently moved to Italy, and that massive move

business. Our guestbook has two new entries, and three more of Ajarn
Mack Petry's black belts have been added to our black belt biographies page.
Check it out. Also, Mike Miener has told me he has pictures from
Thailand he plans to scan and email me. I look forward to being able
to share them with you as soon as I get them.

Atlanta, Georgia Gathering. Thank you Ajarn Michael Weeks for hosting
it under such short notice.
Happy Halloween! A new
article on realistic
training tips has been uploaded on the website and on the forum. The
good thing about the forum is it allows you to make comments and/or post
Hello everybody! I just want to share with you how successful our
