Being a Martial Artist we learn and practice discipline and an ethos of self reliance to help us further our physical and emotional skills.
We can work with coaches that are the best in the world, train with the best students and in the best facilities. However the hard work, sweat, effort, tears, blood and determination all are internal to us and that’s what makes us good or not.
The choice is ours alone to make. Don’t work hard or work hard, don’t learn or learn. Don’t practice or practice. Essential it’s our choice, Don’t do or do.
If we want to achieve anything worthwhile, we have to work at it. Martial Arts isn’t any different. Work hard, practice diligently, practice consistently and remember success or not is down to you. If you want to do it, make it happen and if you really don’t want to make it happen, look for an excuse to blame it all on.
