Why Martial Arts?
It focus’ the individual, most of the time without knowing, to apply it’s teachings in everyday use, (like brushing your teeth). Each motion an individual does daily while moving around, will relate to the graceful movements Martial Arts provides. New ways of thinking & going about planning, solving, or approaching a situation in every day life will become clearer. All this results in CONFIDENCE and DISCIPLINE of SELF.
Its focus is “LIFE”
While being taught, the individual is instilled with “catch phrases” or “quotes”. This will help the individual to understand more than what he/she is learning physically, an educational component is being stored in the MIND. When triggered by THOUGHT, it can be utilized at the moment needed in LIFE. Each individual has a personal goal in life. Once the “Key of the Art” is applied to that goal, new sight will awaken an aspiration for betterment of self.
Who is Master Jean-Francois Le Grand (PHOENIX SENSEI)?
As training continued and years passed, Master Le Grand, at that time a 4th dan (1989), joined and trained under Grand Master Richard Sinclair, Sr. 10th Degree Black Belt, under the Iron Octopus Martial Arts Survival Defense Academy (IOMASDA RYU/ Tetsu Tako Do). Sosai Sinclair has trained with Greats such as Grand Master Dr. Moses Powell (Sanuces Ryu Ju-Jitsu) and Grand Master Professor Ronald Duncan (the Way of the Wind Ninjitsu System). Learning a great deal from Sosai Sinclair, it sparked Master Le Grand to create his own system throughout the years he had been teaching for IOMASDA. Master Le Grand has trained in forms of Ju-Jitsu, Ninjitsu, and Karate-Do to name a few from this system. Master Le Grand had the pleasure to hold the title of “Chief Instructor” in this Dojo at 2nd Degree Black Belt. Master Le Grand’s LOST LEGACY SYSTEMS was created in 1998.
From 1999 to this present day, Master Le Grand continues humbly in taking numerous classes in search of perfection in ART and FORM in different styles of Wrestling and the Martial Arts, with origins in the U.S., China, Africa, Brazil, Japan, and Korea.
With all this under his belt, he started teaching classes of his LOST LEGACY SYSTEMS at home, parks, and YMCAs/recreation centers for the City of NY for “at risk” youths, children, women, and law enforcement. Master Le Grand has left his system to the Black Belts he has trained in NY for years and now teaches in Florida.
Training under so many styles and systems, has guided Master Le Grand to be a well-rounded Martial Artist. A lot like Bruce Lee! Mater Le Grand states, “There is nothing wrong if you are a Black Belt and start at ground zero with a White Belt in another system, for the beginning always brings KNOWLEDGE as purity (white), then you reach the goal and obtain black, controlled but yet uncontrolled power, which puts you in the dark. Now this is the REAL beginning. This is where KNOWLEDGE now converts into WISDOM. True MASTERY of SELF begins, which results in UNDERSTANDING of all things. We are a constant flowing system, a constant rotation of 360 degrees. There is no beginning or end to understand movements of LIFE. Energy is neither created or destroyed, only converted to begin at an end, keeping the cycle flowing.
The Phoenix of LOST LEGACY
The most interesting thing about the Phoenix is it’s immortality which had to be renewed every 500 to 1,000 years. When the end of it’s life cycle drew near, the Phoenix would gather aromatic herbs, woods, and spices from around the world with which to build it’s own funeral pyre or nest. Sitting in the nest, it would ignite the fire either by fanning it’s wings or with the aid of the sun’s rays.
It would consume itself in fire, later to be renewed through it’s ashes and to embark on another 500 years of life. “Born in flame, ending in flame, just to continue the cycle in 360”. The Phoenix is described as either eagle-like or heron-like with gold and red feathers and is considered sacred. The Phoenix is a gentle creature, killing nothing or crushing nothing it touches. One can only exist at a time making it solitary and that one is the System of the LOST LEGACY! The Phoenix is an archetypal symbol of transformation and rebirth that is deeply meaningful for our times.
Just like the Phoenix, we are passing through the fire that destroys the old life and ways of doing things. Through this painful, confusing time, the Phoenix reminds us that we, too, will be reborn from ashes and ascend into a whole glorious new life cycle. Grand Master Le Grand, known as “Phoenix Sensei”, has taken the form of the Phoenix here at LOST LEGACY SYSTEMS. Like the Phoenix, he is an individual who stands apart from the rest, a person with rare qualities and triumphing over adversity while rising over the ashes. The Phoenix is symbolic of rebirth, hope, purity, chastity, marriage, faith, constancy, summer, eternity, immortality, and light.
Being that the Phoenix is represented strongly by immortality, resurrection and life after death, it is found in many ways to be a symbol of CHRIST. In chapters 25 to 26 in the Letter to the Corinthians, St. Clement, Bishop of Rome, upheld the legendary Phoenix as an evidence of Christ’s ability to accomplish the resurrection of the faithful.
It is quoted in Job as saying,” Thou shalt raise up this flesh of mine, which has suffered all these things.” Legends of the mythological Phoenix are far-reaching: Egyptian (Benu/Bennu), Greek/Roman (Phoenix), India (Garuda), Arabic, Chinese (Feng-Huang), Japanese (Ho-Oo), Jewish (Milcham), and Native American (Thunder Bird).
Throughout the many cultures the Phoenix represents high virtue, grace, power, prosperity, strength, peace, purity, and life. “From the flaming sword of the cherub a spark into the nest of the bird, which blazed up forthwith.The bird perished in the flames; but from the red egg in the nest there fluttered aloft a new one — the solitary Phoenix bird.”
