Martial arts is not fighting. It’s literally ART. One uses their body to create art, something elaborate, different, emotional. It’s an extension of ones self. In many ways, when i perform, i feel like I’m making art. But in truth, i actually am.

I’m seriously freaking out! 

THE ACCURACY IS STRONG

Do you train when it’s a heat wave outside? Do you train when your driveway needs shoveling? Do you train with a headache? Ask yourself - what is preventing you from practicing and is it a worthy excuse to miss class? It’s too easy to find reasons not to train. Instead find reasons to train.

Knowledge will give you power, but character respect.

As a martial artist you’re expected to be ready in all conditions. Have you trained outside in winter? A uniform offers little protection against the snow and wind. Your extremities burn from the cold searing through your knuckles and toes. Your mind struggles to focus on technique as it works to warm itself. There is no trick to overcoming the pain. You must center yourself, push past the inevitable wall and move forward. The more conditioning you do, the more the mind and body will adapt.

"Pain does not exist in this DojoFear does not exist in this DojoMercy does not exist in this Dojo”Even if it was used as an arrogant way to teach, it is still a philosophy a martial artist must inherit, but they also must learn when to follow it.
