This announcement has been long in the making and very difficult on a personal level. Nevertheless, life has chosen and thus I have finally come to acceptance of its reality.
After teaching Small Circles of 5 Animals Jujitsu and Combat Survival for nearly 25 years, I find myself in a position where I need to step back. For the last handful of years I’ve struggled with an ever progressive list of intense physical symptoms. Each season that passed they became worse and hindered my ability to teach and do many physical activities. I knew what systems were being affected and how. I also understood part of the core issue behind them, but that core issues didn’t explain everything going on. Finally this past spring I found a set of doctors who were able to positively diagnose.
The complication is a two-fold nervous system “disease”. The said “disease” was caused by almost 20 years of intense injuries, trauma and stress from spec-ops; the years of training for it, the last near death experience I had from being poisoned in 05, as well as the chronic complex ptsd. My medical team says this “disease” has been in the works for probably 13 years now. However, because of my level of fitness, training and skill abilities, I was somehow able to stave off the intensities of it until recent years. But it has caught up.
Neither of the two core complications have known cures, and yet neither are fatal or contagious. My entire medical team have never encountered one of the conditions before, only read about it. But both together have never been seen by my doctors before, and they have become debilitating.
I was filed this year as legally disabled on a permanent status. I have no choice but to start the process of revamping my entire life, and have been working on it since last spring. Beyond working all my self healing protocols and tons of rest, my focuses have shifted heavily toward the other aspect of what I’ve been doing for many years. It is something I’m able to do even with these conditions. And interestingly my skills in that arena have dramatically intensified as my physical body has lessened.
I will leave the Small Circles of 5 Animals Jujitsu website up since it does contain a lot of good info. Since it is a complex and slow art to progress through, none of my past students reached master levels in order to continue to art; most unfortunate. So at this time I’ve yet to know where the art will end up. Only time and life know the answers to that question. I may continue to write articles to place on the blog from time to time, and it is possible I may accept or agree to doing interviews as well.
