Let us not fear pain, or the necessary lessons that accompanies it.
I have to agree with Sensei Takahashi here.
Life has pain.
Life is actually much more complicated and dangerous without it.
Until we really start learning from pleasure and success, the most valuable learning tool we have is the pain that motivates us to look at ourselves and change.
OTOH, I strive to control the amount of pain in the learning process.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
