Re: Self Image During Training

IMHO, self-image by definition is the internal visual representation that my learned ego identity uses as a frame of reference. I try to lose it as much as possible in training and in life. While its useful, it often gets in the way of new learning because it tries to make sense of something new in terms of something I already know and identify with.

When we had to rebuild the Dojo after a fire, many of us were happier without the mirrors.

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