Welcome and thank you for viewing The Kushi Journal.  I am Matt Kushi and one of the many things that I enjoy doing is writing. Whether it has been as a newspaper Opinion columnist, a lyric/poetry writer or just writing in order to communicate with an audience, writing is something that has always struck me as a noble deed.

When you write, you are not merely putting ink to paper – symbols to backdrop. You are conveying an emotion, telling a story or communicating a message so that others may be able to be inspired by the words that you write or learn something new via by what you have to say.

On this site, you will see a wide portfolio of my writings. Writings will be posted as they are written or as deemed fit to be published – past and present. These writings range from general commentary to sports commentary; from messages that need to be written and spoken to stories told through lyric writing and poetry. Topics to be covered will range from general affairs to current affairs – from disability advocacy to sports commentary and beyond.

Please take the time to read through writings as they are posted above and please feel free to subscribe to this page. Thank you and I hope that you enjoy your experience.

You can find additional writings on Athletic Coaching Lessons at the following Locations:
