To a greater or lesser degree, every professional requires expertise and trust to effectively provide their services for another. I first came to Asia in 2001, when I went to Taiwan to study Chinese and kung fu, in preparation to go study at the Shaolin Temple, in Henan, China.
Other requirements for my black krama were that I trained bardal serey, kick boxing, with Paddy Carson, who had been my coach and trainer since 2004. In July, 2011, I received a call, asking me to be a guest judge in the first professional MMA event in Malaysia. I returned to Cambodia for training and put together a makeshift MMA program between working with the Bokator master, and Paddy Carson for boxing and kickboxing, and K-1 Fight Factory for MMA and conditioning. The first few months, I worked as a live-in bodyguard and trainer for a Dato (titled Lord) in Kuala Lumpur and trained full time with the MMA Wing Chun team, fighting out of Kota Damansara, Malaysia. July, 2012, I moved back to China, where I taught full time at Shanghai University, teaching a research methodology course, based on the Australian Stock Exchange. In the coming months, I plan to train and write in Vietnam, hopefully at the national sport training center in Hanoi, san da and wrestling.

Educator, politician, author, minister of the Congregational (American Board) Church, founder member and first president of the South African Native National Congress (SANNC). John Langalibalele Dube was born at Inanda Mission station of the American Zulu Mission (AZM) in Natal on 11 February 1871 to James and Elizabeth Dube.
Rev James Dube (who died in 1877) was also one of the minor Zulu chiefs of the AmaQadi tribe and one of the first ministers ordained by the AZM. He spent his early schooling years at Adams School at the Inanda station, where his father James Dube served as a Congregational Minister. While he was at school, on one occasion, Dube got into some trouble with other boys at his school, and the school’s Reverend Goodenough approached his colleague, William Wilcox, who was based at Inhambe, to come and have a talk to the boys. Dube asked Wilcox if he could accompany him to Oberlin College on his return to the United States.

During 1887 and 1888, Dube worked at the Oberlin College as a cleaner, and did odd jobs for the students. Wilcox left Oberlin to take up the position of a pastor in New York, and invited Dube to visit him there.
While in the US, Dube was given the opportunity to lecture while accompanying Wilcox on his lecture tour. A chronic illness forced Dube to return to South Africa in 1892, a year after Wilcox had returned to work at a mission station at Groutville. In 1897 Dube returned once more to the US for further training, this time accompanied by his wife.
Perhaps, more importantly, on his return, Dube established links with like-minded leaders to form the Natal Native Congress (NNC) in July 1900. The skills of editing and publishing that Dube developed, while working at a local printing firm in the US, were put to good use when he established the first indigenous Zulu newspaper, Ilanga Lase Natal. Ilangawas financed from donations and funds which Dube received from associates and friends in the US.
When Dube returned from the US in 1905 (after his third visit), tensions arose between him and the white missionaries. However, Dube bitterly opposed the arrest and trial of Dinizulu in connection with the rebellion and actively assisted in raising funds for his defence. Dube tried to use his influence during the rebellion by visiting and talking to Zulu chiefs to get their people to keep the peace. During the rebellion, the White press generated extreme hostility towards the Black population and exaggerated threats of terror. Kholwa chief representatives distanced themselves from the disruptive activities of Bambatha.
Dube also used the rebellion to encourage the kholwa community to collect funds to send representatives to Britain to demonstrate against the unfair poll tax, the pass laws and the oppressive compulsory labour system. Political agitation against the Natives Land Act continued, and preliminary drafts of the Act were debated in 1911.
The SANNC had a newspaper called Abantu-Batho from 1912 to 1933, which carried columns in English, isiZulu, Sesotho, and isiXhosa. Dube was instrumental in improving the status of black women, especially those involved in the domestic work sector, and acted as a mediator in women’s dealings with the Department of Native Affairs.
In 1913 the Natives Land Act affected every strata of African rural society, which spurred the SANNC.
Dube was successful in his endeavours in contributing to the political and socio-economic development of Blacks in Natal.
He went on to publish a historical novel that has proven to be popular and influential in the Zulu canon, titled Insila kaShaka (Shaka's Body Servant) (1930).
Dube also embarked on writing biographies of the Zulu royal family, especially that of King Dinizulu, making him the first biographer in African literature. There are numerous other works of less significant literary quality such as the essay Ukuziphatha [On Behaviour] (1910). Osteoarthritis’ exact cause remains unknown, but it is generally thought to stem from aging and wear and tear on joints, exacerbated for some by genes. Overweight or obese people have greater arthritis risk, usually attributed to the load their joints carry, and the number of cases is increasing as people live longer and weigh more. In one region of the northern United States, research over the past 50 years has shown that poor nutrition early in life led to arthritis in more than 50 percent of the moose studied.
Collecting bones of more than 4,000 moose, researchers discovered that out of 1,200 carcasses they analyzed, more than half had arthritis, virtually identical to the human kind.
Scientists say that some people’s arthritis can also mean to be linked in part to nutritional deficits in the womb and possibly throughout childhood. The moose conclusion bolsters a growing body of research connecting early development to chronic conditions like osteoarthritis, which currently affects 27 million Americans, up from 21 million in 1990. Studies of moose on Isle Royale in Lake Superior, along with human research, suggests arthritis origins are more complex, probably influenced by early exposure to nutrients and other factors while our bodies are developing.
Even obesity’s link to arthritis probably goes beyond extra weight, experts say, to include eating the wrong things. Nutrition might also affect hormones, the likelihood of later inflammation or oxidative stress, even how a genetic predisposition for arthritis is expressed or suppressed. The arthritic moose were often small, measured by the length of metatarsal bone in the foot. Some experts say prenatal nutrition is most critical; others see role for nutrients after birth and beyond.

Part of the requirements for the belt were that I had to study traditional wrestling, and go fight in the Khmer traditional wrestling village in Vihear Suor village, Kandal province, just outside Phnom Penh.
I was required to have a minimum number of professional fights (which I completed with boxing fights), plus learn the bokator fighting techniques, including the knees, elbows, kicks, punches, as well as basic grappling and joint locking. During the run of my web TV show, Martial Arts Odyssey, I had done a few episodes on MMA and was always fascinated by the art, but thought that at age 44 I was too old to learn it.


While there, I put together Team Cambodia MMA, composed of myself and 3 Khmers from the Bokator Academy. I didn’t like the wing chun striking, so, I asked the Sifu to only work with me on ground fighting. Then, I went to Beijing to live in a traditional wrestling school, where I had two training sessions per day, while I waited for school to start in Shanghai, at the end of September. In Phnom Penh, I work as a guest trainer for the Cambodian MMA TV show, which is similar to The Ultimate Fighter, called Khmer Warrior Champion. I also hope to get to Mongolia in summer 2014 for training and to compete in the wrestling events in the Naadam Festival.
He is martial arts and adventure author living in Asia, the author of the books, “Warrior Odyssey’ and “The Monk from Brooklyn.” He is also the host of the web TV show, “Martial Arts Odyssey,” which traces his ongoing journey through Asia, learning martial arts in various countries. Last month it found, perhaps unsurprisingly, that those who have more money are generally a lot happier with their lives.
Missionaries played an important role in shaping the social and political scene in South Africa.
From 1888 to 1890, Dube enrolled at the Oberlin preparatory school to study the sciences, mathematics, classical Greek works, and a course in oratorical skills. During this visit Dube assisted Wilcox in printing a pamphlet entitled Self support among the kaffirs. He lectured from 1890 to 1892, delivering talks throughout Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York. On his return, Dube taught at his former high school in Amanzimtoti, where he met Nokutela Mdima, who he later married. Officially launched in April 1903, Dube’s aim in establishing the newspaper was for it to be a mouth-piece for the black population, and to propagate the idea of a united African front. Dube used his newspaper to expose injustices and evil deeds from all quarters and made black people aware of their rights and privileges. There was little evidence of any influence from the American Zulu Mission in the newspaper.
Ilanga lase Natal attacked the missionaries’ views on land allotment on the Reserves, the Mission Reserve rent, the social aloofness of missionaries and their lack of trust for the converts, inadequate selection of African officers and failure to defend African interests.
It was triggered largely by an introduction of new taxes, and also the encroachment of white settlers on land owned by Africans. He wanted to avoid violence at all costs and wanted the government to know that the kholwa would always remain loyal to the government and that they had no reason to rebel.
Dinizulu, son of the last Zulu king, was for Black people in South Africa the symbol of their former independence and their identity as a people. Dube had no desire to end British rule and the spread of Christianity, and Bambatha represented the heathen way of life, something Dube had no desire to return to. Some colonists saw the rebellion as an opportunity to grab the land of Blacks who supported Bambatha and ousting the people who lived on this land.
White authorities also became increasingly critical of the activities of the kholwa class and the missionaries who trained them. The rebellion had an direct effect on the Ohlange school as a number of students remained at home due to rumours of violence. Not long after, several hundred members of South Africa's educated African elite met at Bloemfontein on January 8, 1912, to establish the South African Native National Congress (renamed the African National Congress in 1923). In 1914 Dube was one of the delegates in London to protest against this legislation, but this delegation caused some controversy within the SANNC. In 1926 he was one of the South African delegates to an international conference at Le Zoute in Belgium, a visit he also used to raise funds for Ohlange. It should be remembered that Dube was ousted from the presidency of the ANC in 1917 for his apparent acceptance of the principle - if not the contemporary practice - of segregation.
He still remained active particularly in the in 1940s after Albert Xuma persuaded him to participate in the movement nationally, but with limited success.
He fought against the injustices against Black people and tried to gain a sense of equity through his lifetime. The work that was to earn Dube the honorary doctorate of philosophy was the essay Umuntu Isita Sake Uqobo Lwake (A man is his own worst enemy) (1992). Nutrients, expert say, might influence the composition or shape of bones, joints or cartilage. Small metatarsals indicate early in life nutritional deficiency, and scientists determined that the arthritic moose were born during times when food was scarce, so their mothers could not produce enough milk. Rolf Peterson, a Michigan Technological University scientist on the Isle Royale project which began in 1958, has said, that the early moosehood development window occurred in utero through 28 months, but humans developmental time frame lasted into the teens.
It works round-the-clock, and for not just days or weeks, but for months and months, very own Money From Your Website making you tons of CASH! I have been in Asia for 13 years, now, studying martial arts and languages, and writing books about my experiences. In the village, I participated in traditional wrestling competition, fighting in a dirt circle on the ground. My goal was to complete a study of the southeast Asia kickboxing arts, so I also studied Muay boran (ancient Muay Thai) from a variety of teachers and documented the training. After one month of training, the four of us, accompanied by the grand master, flew to Malaysia and fought in Mayhem II, the largest MMA event probably ever held in Southeast Asia, with over 60 fighters. During that year, I published a number of papers and studied for the HSK national Chinese exam, which would allow me to enter a PhD program in China. When school started, I was permitted to join the traditional wrestling team, the first foreigner to do so. Judo and san da are included within the scope of my research because they are both related to Chinese wrestling.
I also help train Khmer MMA fighters from AFIGHTER team, which now has contracts with One FC, Southeast Asia’s largest MMA organization. But there is a a€?squeezed middlea€™ who appear slightly less happy than those lower down or higher up in the earnings table. Dube’s grandmother, Dalitha became the first convert of the Lindley Mission Station in Inanda, in the late 1840s.
It was only because Dube’s father was converted to Christianity by the early missionaries that he did not rule over his AmaQadi people.
The missionary influence was both positive and negative, and Dube stands out as a typical example of both influences.
Dube claimed to have saved some money while working as a miner, although it is believed that his mother gave Wilcox a total of thirty gold sovereigns to take Dube to the United States. Throughout this period, Dube experienced great difficulty maintaining a steady job while studying at the same time.
The pamphlet emphasised Wilcox’s belief that industrial education was the best way to uplift the native people of Africa. Dube succeeded in raising a sum of money which was later used to start a school in South Africa.
Again, Dube and Wilcox found themselves working together, but Dube became increasingly unhappy with the structure of traditional mission education.
The aim of the NNC was to find a way whereby black peoples’ feelings, aspirations, and grievances could be brought to the attention of the colonial government.
He played a leading role in Black resistance to the Union of South African states, from whose legislature Blacks were to be excluded.
Initially the paper was printed by International Printing Press in Durban, but from October 1903 (the 25th edition) it was printed at Ohlange itself.
Occasionally he would feature editorials and articles in English which were intended for the white settler community, the department of Native Affairs and the Natal Government. Dube had followed the debate regarding the poll tax in Parliament and was extremely aggrieved that the government had not consulted with kholwa spokesmen or chiefs on the matter. Dube, with his recollections of and pride in his African past, understood the significance of Dinizulu and his place in Zulu history.


Dube’s programme of self improvement rested upon the precondition that educated kholwa would be able to purchase land. Dube defended the behaviour of the Black elite during the rebellion and refused to take responsibility for the violence.
Dube blamed the government for the conflict and argued in his newspaper that if the government halted the collection of the poll tax it would be seen as showing weak. But in the columns of Ilanga and as part of many delegations of kholwa he protested and petitioned the government against proposed legislation. In 1912, Dubeaccepted the Presidency of the ANC in spite of the pressures put on him by his preoccupation with education. During this time Dube advocated a need for the congress to work closely with the Coloured people and succeeded in his attempts to get representatives of the congress to meet at least once a year with the African Political Organisation (APO), under the leadership of Dr Abdullah Abdurahman. He was involved in replacingJosiah Tshangana Gumede,who was considered left-wing, with Pixley ka Seme as president of the ANC in 1930, and in 1935 Dube became a member of the All African Convention. Dube forged an alliance with the segregationist, Heaton Nicholls, and he toured the country soliciting the support of African leaders in Johannesburg, Kimberly, Bloemfontein and the Eastern Cape for a bill on Land Settlement promoted by Nicholls.
I went on to Malaysia to study silat tomoi, an art which is a cross-over between Muay Thai and silat.
I refused the opportunity to be a judge, and instead, asked that I be registered as a fighter. By Spring 2013, I had been accepted to Shanghai University of Sport, with a full scholarship, to do a PhD in the Wu Shu department, but with traditional wrestling as my major. For my own training, I train every morning with my old friend, Jap Leun, at the national wrestling training center. There was conflict between the introduction of western education by the missionaries and the traditional African society’s way of life. While mission education helped Dube develop a strong grasp of the English language, missionaries also attempted to culturally indoctrinate their indigenous subjects.
Although Dube never received an official degree from Oberlin College, the skills, connections and worldly perspectives which he cultivated during these years laid the foundations for his later accomplishments. The concept had a profound influence on Dube, to the extent that it would result in the founding of the Ohlange Institute ten years later. During this time Dube published a book called A Familiar Talk Upon My Native Land and Some Things Found There. During this visit Dube was profoundly influenced by Booker T Washington, whose ideas dominated Dube’s educational and political thoughts. He noted in his newspaper that the economic situation of Blacks would not allow them to pay the tax without considerable suffering. He made it known that the kholwa still identified with the values of the White man and wished to be seen as equals to Whites. In 1912 Dube addressed a group of Africans in Zululand to explain the new movement (the ANC) and appeal for unity.
Dube also urged unity amongst the black population through the affiliation to the congress and the removal of provincial bodies, which functioned as separate entities. The bone of contention within the SANNC was the Land Act, and Dube was ousted from the presidency of the SANNC in 1917 and was succeeded by Sefako Mapogo Makgatho. He represented Natal on the Native Representative Council from 1936 until his death, in 1946, when he was replaced by Chief Albert Luthuli on the Council.
This provided for the allocation of seven million morgen of land, to be added to the already scheduled areas, and the provision of adequate funds.
While at the temple, I fought my first professional boxing match in Asia, to earn money for poor villagers, displaced by the war in Burma. Fighters in the village fight for money in these competitions, but are careful not to kill each other.
My Khmer teammate, Tun Serey, won two fights and placed second in his division, the first Khmer to ever win an MMA fight. Later, I moved to Johor Bahru, and lived inside of the Ultimate MMA Academy, where I trained full time and fought 5 more times, all wins.
In November 2013, I won a silver medal in the Shanghai International BJJ Tournament, in the Chinese Traditional Wrestling division. Along the road to my dissertation, I am required to write what the Chinese call “small dissertations” basically research papers. Consequently, Dube earned money doing outdoor labouring jobs, but after expressing his dissatisfaction, Wilcox introduced him to Mrs Frank H Foster, who used her connections in Oberlin to find more suitable work for the student.
The work reflected the conflict Dube experienced as a mission-educated indigenous person struggling to find a balance between his traditional ethnic roots and Christian teachings. This spurred him on to establish a small day school in Incawadi Village in the Umkhomazi Valley, where he taught English and mathematics.
The Natal government attempted to suppress Ilanga Lase Natal before and during the Bambatha Rebellion – the newspaper was the object of constant suspicion. The problem was that, like Hertzog's proposals, Heaton Nicholls coupled his land schemes with an attempt to end the franchise of the Cape Africans. In it Dube expounded his nationalism and his rejection of African inequality and his belief in the principle of African representation. From Thailand to Cambodia where I remained for about 18 months, studying boxing, Khmer kick boxing (bradal serey), and Bokator.
In that adventure, I got to know Jap Leun, the greatest Cambodian wrestler, and we would remain friends, and on-again, off-again training partners through to the present. I am far from an expert in kick boxing and have only had professional fights in boxing and MMA. Periodically, I would fly back to Cambodia to touch up my boxing with Paddy Carson and to go exchange techniques at the Bokator Academy. But the publication also reflected Dube’s motivation to produce literature and exhibited his writing skills, which would serve him well in leading indigenous people in articulating the battle for their rights.
In an attempt to transform and Christianise the village, Dube built two churches between 1894 and 1896. At one stage Dube was accused by the authorities for inciting resentment against the government. This scheme also envisaged the representation of Africans in the senate but this never materialised.
In 1935 a 50% share of ILanga laseNatal the paper was bought up by Bantu Press and Dube’s control of the paper waned. Over the next 10 years, I studied in Korea, Vietnam, Philippines, Malaysia, and other Asian countries, but I frequently returned to Cambodia for additional training and writing. I have never had a professional fight in Muay, but my goal was to document and record the arts, while learning as much as I could. I spent summer 2013 back at the Shaolin Temple, getting my body fit again, so I could handle training at the university.
Washington encouraged his students at Tuskegee to become self-reliant by teaching them skills such as printing, farming, shoemaking, and cooking, amongst others. I also made arrangements at Shaolin to have a private teacher work with me two hours per day, preparing for my HSK Chinese exam, the final hurdle for my scholarship and studies. I chose Cambodia, not only because of my experience with and knowledge of the arts there, but also because I checked the Chinese academic archives and they didn’t have any research about Cambodian martial arts. This inspired Dube to develop a similar kind of initiative aimed at advancing the rights of Black people when he returned to South Africa. In August 1900 he established the Zulu Christian Industrial Institute which was renamed the Ohlange Institute in 1901. In 2010, I returned to Cambodia to study bradal serey intensely with Paddy Carson, who offered a belt exam to myself and my training partner, Robert Starkweather.
