Curious what being humble means to you, especialy when NOT in a dojo or other training setting. Like say, the grocery store, the freeway, or other places.
I tend to think of humility from a different direction. If you learn to truly respect others and develop a sense of empathy (like a good uke/nage in action) then you'll discover a type of self-respect others might call humility.

Beating down your ego, like it was some kneaded dough, seems pointless. You wouldn't do that to other people, so why do it to yourself?

It is not practice that makes perfect, it is correct practice that makes perfect.
