Welcome to DanStryker.com!

Why the new site?

Because StrykerMartialArts.com is a great site but I was trying to have it fulfill two purposes.  First was to educate potential students, and second to serve current students.  In attempting to serve both, I don’t think I am serving any very well. 

Therefore, I created this site specifically for you…  the students of Stryker Martial Arts and their “sphere of influence”… simply meaning the people around them.  My goal is to put content on here that you can turn to for inspiration and share with the people around you. 

This site will serve two purposes:

  1. As a place for me to lead by example and share my experiences of my Martial Arts training both on and off the mat with you.
  2. A study of Mastery.  What is it?  What does it look like?  What does it take to be Masterful?  How can you take the lessons that you have learned from Martial Arts training and both influence and inspire the people around you? 

While much of the content will be martial arts and fitness related, it will include other things like the video below:

The Ice Book (HD) from Davy and Kristin McGuire on Vimeo.

What does this video have to do with Mastery?  These people created an amazing work of art with relatively no money.  The philosophy is that creativity and vision beat budget everytime.  It represents creative thinking at its best and it most certainly is Masterfully executed!

I hope that you will join me on this site often and interact with the posts here.  Ultimately, I am building this site for you as a place to call home when you’re on the internet.  All you need is a google account and you are good to go! 

See you soon!
