Quotes from Mr. Coble:

????"I believe in keeping an open mind to other styles and other schools. Every school and every system has something valuable to offer. I like to teach techniques that work, no matter where I picked them up or who taught them to me. If a technique works, I will use it, and I will teach it."

????"Don't take the martial arts so seriously that you can't have fun and enjoy the experience. Don't get me wrong, I believe in training hard, and I also believe that self-defense should be taken very seriously. But don't be afraid to have fun with what you have learned. There are times to be serious, and times to have fun. We do lots of demonstrations and exhibitions, and we throw as much flashy stuff as we can into them. We overact, and have fun doing it. Those are the times to have fun with it."????
