A rokudan in Shorin-ryu and a friend of mine told me this:

"The first ten years in martial arts are physical. The second ten are mental. From then on is all spiritual."

Any opinions on this?

I've heard something like:
"The first 10 years of practice are very hard. From that on you get used to it"

If I'm not right - I'm wrong

Another one I read:

"In the first three years of training, one feels like he can conquer the world. In the next three years, he realizes how hard it is to pregress even one inch."
