I agree, I have hit a few times in judo when I wanted to quit because I had stagnated. It wasn't that I wasn't having fun, it was that I was not improving. This made me think "what is the point of training if I'm not improving.". It wasn't that I was not improving, just that it was slower and learning the more advanced stuff was harder. Thanks to my friends who kept pushing me to go with them, I stuck it out and broke past those humps. I'm having more fun now then ever.
Thanks Don.Great Post. I don't know any dedicated Martial Artist who has not gone through this part of the learning "process" myself included.
