I have decided to actually train physically again.

For a period of time I was concentrating on the inner growth more so than physical. I think I have lost power and speed. I have gained better technique and feel for my opponent, but I've lost the raw power and speed behind my training. I have one year to prepare for my next dan test. It's important to me. With our belt system you have to be able to beat a person of the rank you want to be. This can be competitive and physically challenging.

Ive started working on hand speed training, bag training, running, and weight lifting again. I will continue to develop my inner growth, but I am not going to lose sight on my physical strength and speed training, or I will end up like an old man. I want to be in the middle. Strong enough to fight a Tiger and smart enough to fight a Dragon.

We shall see what happens.

Wish me luck
