Hi every one it's me again. I just wantted to talk today about the importance of attitudes in martail arts. There is a very fine line between confidence and cockyness. Remember, it does not matter if everyone knows your abilities, just as long as you know your self. what i say will not make you better nor will the color of your belt. Only you can advance your self. Have you ever heard the expresion " I can not make you do it, I can only give you tools to do it" ( Quote from General Choi, the founder of Taekwando). People generaly strive only to learn the actions of the art and leave the spiritual aspec behind, and you cant do that. You are only learning the half of the art its self. So please, if you are going to take the time to learn the actions of the art, spend some time learning about the history and culture.
Thanks again for your time and have a good new year.
