Sometimes the low end is way better than the high end. Why so?

It tends to be more creative and innovative.

“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower”.……..Steve Jobs

The film industry has provided us with many gritty examples. When I first saw The Terminator I walked in to the theater with low expectations and then ZAP!!!!! I was on the edge of my seat, had to catch my breath and was enthralled from beginning to end.

Then the high end, higher budget sequels came out and………Yawn.

Let’s try two more.

When the film Batman Begins revitalized that super hero franchise with Christian Bale steering the ship, I was mesmerized by its depth, wisdom and real life applications. Yes I know some saw it as Zen babble but like Chinese left overs, tasty Zen babble no doubt. I loved it. Probably watched it ten times. The lessons about fear were pounded into our heads with a feather but it did penetrate. article - Wikimedia photo article – Wikimedia photo

Then the higher end sequels came out which were exciting but for me, hollow at the core.

Finally in the area of horror, how many of you have watched some low budget flick that grabbed you by the throat and society as well with box office gold. Then came the inevitable formulaic flat sequels and the only thing you wanted them to grab was your eye lids to keep them from falling down.

Innovation is coming to the world of fully competitive women’s wrestling. More and more attention will be focused on fully competitive women’s wrestling at the Dojo. We are already planning our inaugural Spring Event in the San Francisco bay area. Please stay tuned. article article

Change is often hard to understand let alone embrace but it seems we have to accept that it is constant.

“Most of us understand that innovation is enormously important. It’s the only insurance against irrelevance. It’s the only guarantee of long-term customer loyalty. It’s the only strategy for out-performing a dismal economy”.…….Gary Hamel

Another innovation that has caught my attention is by the young inventor Palmer Lucky who has taken the virtual reality world by electric storm with Oculus Rift, an affordable virtual reality headset. article - Wikimedia photo article – Wikimedia photo

The innovative site relates Mr. Lucky’s thoughts. “I’m a self-taught engineer, a hacker, a maker, an electronics enthusiast. I’m from Long Beach, California. I like making things. My dad was a car salesman, my mum was a stay-at-home mum. I was home-schooled for a long time. I started taking community college courses when I was 14 or 15. In 2010 I started going to [California State University] and I was a journalism major.”

The information source reports that Facebook acquired the Virtual Startup for $2 Billion dollars.

I think you can guess what has to be a part of this innovative explosion?

That’s right. A low budget avant-garde horror flick. expands, “The low budget frightener, loosely based on H.P. Lovecraft’s From Beyond, tracks a journalist investigating the disappearance of her old college friend and his ties to a secret experimental drug. Silence of the Lambs‘ Ted Levine, Sleepy Hollow‘s Katia Winter and True Blood‘s Michael McMillian star for first time director Blair Erickson in the film produced by Sunchaser Entertainment’s Stephanie Riggs and Before the Door’s Corey Moosa and Sean Akers, and Christian Arnold-Beutel.”

Thomas E. Freston is an entertainment industry executive who among many things on an impressive resume was one of the founding members of MTV. He expressed that “Innovation is taking two things that already exist and putting them together in a new way.

Let’s view a reminder of the cultural shift and new innovative world of fully competitive female wrestling proposed under FCI’s leadership.

  1. The graduates from the female freestyle wrestling programs will meet the women from the

              female submission wrestling industry in battle.

  1. The competitions will take place at the Dojo.
  1. The cutting edge attire will have some sex appeal but virtually no skin showing up top.
  1. Records and statistics will be kept.
  1. The desired female wrestler of the future is the one with a strong social media following that

             has the ability to generate strong online viewing to appeal to corporate advertisers.

  1. The high school girls may wrestle at the same event as the professional grapplers. article - high school girls - photo credit article – high school girls – photo credit


The Dojo has many appeals and some are culturally based.

The sound information source Wikipedia shares, “A dojo is a Japanese term which literally means “place of the way“. article - Wikimedia photo article – Wikimedia photo

The term can refer to a formal training place for any of the Japanese do arts but typically it is considered the formal gathering place for students of any Japanese martial arts style such as karate, judo, or samurai, to conduct training, examinations and other related encounters.

The concept of a dōjō only referring to a training place specifically for Asian martial arts is a Western concept; in Japan, any physical training facility, including professional wrestling schools, may be called dōjō because of its close martial arts roots.

A proper Japanese martial arts dōjō is considered special and is well cared for by its users. Shoes are not worn in a dōjō.” article - Wikimedia photo article – Wikimedia photo

“You have all the reason in the world to achieve your grandest dreams. Imagination plus innovation equals realization”.…….Denis Waitley

In the women’s wrestling community these are exciting and innovative times for certain.
