The martial arts haiku tournament has officially ended. Thank you to all the participants. Here are some of my favorite haiku from among the submissions:
Ever since the dawn of time (or when Yoga became Westernized), an elite team of Yogis and Yoginis have protected Yoga throughout Santa Monica.

Separating martial fact from fiction is a perilous task. If you are too credulous, you may be tricked into joining a fraudulent kung fu cult. On the other hand, if you are too skeptical, you will cut yourself off from real high-level skills. “Common sense” is an unreliable guide, because it is grounded in your own limited experience, and odds are you’ve never met a legitimate master.
For this and other reasons, I do not use my website to mock other martial arts and artists. Sometimes, though, I hear a story so fantastical that I just cannot resist the urge to share it.

These top fighters have combined the best of Muay Thai, Wing Chun, Karate and Ninjitsu, to achieve real ultimate power!
