McGrath is the CEO of the Arts of Ancient Wisdom businesses. We deal
with companies and business partners from the USA, Canada, China, and
Malaysia to run an
AAWISDOM Market, which is a
General Dollar Store, Online Shopping Center, and Department Store. We
can sell cheaper here because we don't have to pay commission fees,
waste our time dealing with a few dishonest online thieves trying to
steal $1 or $2, and adapting to changes of unfair, uncompromising
sporadic policy changes by these corporations.
McGrath does not run third-party market place stores anymore. Some AAWISDOM assets and products are given franchised to some friends,
martial arts apprentices, and business associates to sell there at those
places at higher prices, but soon we will discontinue and boycott those
market places, especially eBay and Amazon.
Don't sell on
eBay and Amazon. We can build a professional online store like
AAWISDOM Market for $1200-$1500
for those who want to have their own store and don't know how. Please
contact for details.
Below is the explanations for
evolution of Arts of Ancient Wisdom Stores Heading Logos:
The one above is old heading logo
used until Oct 5, 2012. Christopher McGrath believes in God and knows God
exists. He is proud to be a Roman Catholic and being a Roman Catholic means
a great deal for him. Being strong, seeking truth and righteousness, and
living the Right Way of Life are all part of him. Icons in the image above
represent Ultimate Warriors of God, such as St. Michael and St. George.
Crucifix is the symbol of Christ the Savior of mankind. Without thinking
deeply, he proudly chose those icons to be the store logo. However, some
people may get an impression that he is imposing "his religion" on others.
To clarify that, prevent such impression, and to separate personal and
professional life, this logo is no longer used for AAWISDOM Market heading
and Arts of Ancient Wisdom Martial Arts Center. Christopher McGrath never goes
around preaching and talking about God or religions like others Christians,
Buddhists, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Satanic believers, Agnostics, and
Salvation is already established. Everyone should just try to save
themselves and "go get" the salvation by themselves because no one else can
do it for you. Christopher McGrath isn't
a priest, or a missionary. He is a professional scholar of life and a
warrior. Thus the image above is discontinued. He never imposed about his knowledge and understanding
about spiritual subjects and religions to anyone.
The logo above was discontinued at
Oct 5, 2012 as well. Instead of all warrior saints, a caring motherly saint
icon was added with good intention for those who are fans of St. Mary,
especially good women. Again, we are separating personal and professional
lives. We treat everyone equally with respect and sincerity.
The logo above is the entrance to the AAWISDOM
Market and Arts of Ancient Wisdom Martial Arts Center. "AAW" stands
for Arts of Ancient Wisdom. It is a badge symbol trademark for

the middle is chosen to be part of Arts of Ancient Wisdom logos
because it represents ancient warriors in Macedon, a badge of honor
and courage. The icons on the right represent also honor and
courage. They are of ancient Sparta and its warriors.

middle is chosen to be part of Arts of Ancient Wisdom logos because it

to its left below is a knight of middle ages, to the very left end is an
ancient Myanmar warrior.
We are paying respect to ancient warriors over
the world. Only the most honorable with impressive way of life and bravery
are carefully picked to be icons in this logo: Alexander the Great for
breaking up the evil Persian Empire; Viking warriors for their great valor
and pride; Middle Age knights for their strength and honor; ancient samurais
for their dedication to uncompromising ways in which they lived and studied
martial arts and sought the truthful way of life; ancient Spartan warriors
for how they lived by extreme high standards and studied martial arts who
kept monstrous Persian Empire in check and fought countless proud battles
against it for the sake of principle and freedom.
Ancient Myanmar warriors (on the left
vs. Genghis Khan
Military Conquest) are not well-known in
world history because they never conquered and ruled over the lands they
invaded. Myanmar (Burma) was never invaded and conquered until the time of
British Empire around 1885. Myanmar warriors kept their territories strong
and mostly defended their lands instead of focusing on expending. Its
neighboring countries, such as China, India, Mongolia, Thailand, Laos, etc
never could hold the Myanmar border towns and villages they conquered very
long. When ancient Myanmar martial artists retook those conquered lands,
they punished the aggressive country severely by killing everyone, and
burning cities and towns in whole to ashes on the other sides of the Myanmar
borders, but they never stayed on those conquered lands to rule over or kept
on expending. This is why Myanmar martial artists and the history of Myanmar
is not popular. The strength, martial knowledge, skills, and effectiveness
of the ancient Myanmar Warriors will clearly be recognized if one would
study Southeast Asian history. Southeast Asian peninsula's history is very
obscured and unknown in educated scholars of world history. It is very
different from main-stream Asian history. For example, who stopped Genghis
Khan from taking over South-East Asian? It was not India or China. It was
Ancient Myanmar warriors. When Mongolia became united under Genghis Khan, he
originally wanted to conquest towards South-East. Khan's forces ran through
western Chinese territories and northern Indian lands. When he reached
northwest Myanmar territories, his conquest reached a dead end. Genghis Khan
wanted Southeast Asia with great desire. His enormous military was stopped
by "unknown tribes or people" of Southeast Asian, which is written in
history books vaguely. While Khan was military-campaigning for years against
ancient Myanmar martial artists, his other forces ran through the east and
conquered half of China easily and quickly. Soon Genghis Khan gave up his
dream to take over Southeast Asian, ran across northern parts of India,
rampaged through all of Eurasia, breaking up the short-lived Hellenic Empire of the
Alexander the Great and took over the world. This ancient Mongolian Empire
conquest reached almost the whole Europe and most of Russia, and Asian.
Because the Mongolian Empire was an evil empire, none of the Ancient
Mongolian warriors are chosen to include in Arts of Ancient Wisdom icons.
The Great Alexander the Great was stopped by Indian warriors, Genghis Khan
easily broke up the Hellenic Empire, did as he pleased with Chinese Empire
and Indian territories, and took over the "world." He or none of his
successors could cross Myanmar territories to fulfill their dream to
conquest towards the Southeast Asian. This is why ancient Myanmar warriors
are important icons of martial arts, valor, and honor. AAWISDOM Market
proudly honor all those ancient warriors and icons and symbols of all that
