JBAMA encourages students to be the best that they can be. Not only in the martial arts and in the development of their self defense skills, but in all areas of their living being...mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally.

We know that physical development is enhanced by regular exercise and that refined motor skills can be further developed by the practice and repetition of drills that focus on the coordination and effective utilization of our limbs and bodies.

Our mental attitudes shape us in many ways also. Our physical skills can easily be hampered by negative attitudes. The positive "I can do it" attitude will always bring forth the best of our physical capabilities.


We know that when our spirits are high we usually shine. We have a great positive outlook in everything we do. We feel good about the world and how we fit in it. Isn't it funny that we can feel this way one day and the next day feel like our spirit has fallen 100 fold. Nothing is going right. Our problems seem to be insurmountable. Our physical performance is hindered, our mental outlook may not be positive. Yet we know that nothing has really changed in our world, only the way we see it that day.

Our emotions, at times, can be as complex as the universe. They are shaped by many things in our lives; influenced by people, events and our own physical well-being. Stress or lack of sleep can bring out the worst of us and we can become more emotional over things that normally don't bother us. Our emotions affect our physical performance, our mental attitudes and can disrupt our spiritual consciousness.

Stop and think for a moment what keeps these amazing bodies alive and hopefully well. Our food is our fuel. The better the fuel, the better our bodies, the better our minds, the better our physical well-being. Performance, stamina, energy, thought, reasoning, attitudes, physical and mental acuity...all these and more are directly affected by what we put into our bodies.

Science has been studying the needs of our bodies for decades. The search for optimal health will be ongoing for many decades to come. One thing that most scientist agree upon is the need to supplement our diet with nutritional additives. Many of our food sources are no longer rich enough to provide the essential nutrients our bodies require for optimal health. Our soils are lacking many of the essential micro-nutrients and food processing methods are destroying large percentages of the remaining nutritional value.

If we stop and look around at the growing number of diseases that are killing us; heart disease (7.2 million deaths per year), cancer (6.2 million deaths per year), stroke (4.6 million deaths per year), diabetes (135 million suffer from diabetes, estimated to rise to 300 million by 2025), osteoporosis (25 million sufferers), arthritis (165 million sufferers), Alzheimer's (29 million sufferers), obesity (for the first time in the history of the U.S. and other industrialized countries, there are more people obese than are of normal weight), skin cancer (a 5-fold increase in almost all types of skin cancer has occurred over the past two decades), etc...we know that something is going wrong and we are not taking care of ourselves.

Some of us at JBAMA are doing something about it. We searched out what we believe to be the best nutritional science company in the world.
