This blog will focus on budo/life lessons learned. One of the biggest tools for my own personal growth and development has been my experiences as a fighter, trainer, manager, and promoter. The people I've met, fighters I've fought and trained, and places I've been have all given me deep insight into who I am and who I am capable of being.
To some boxing may seem a world apart from aikido philosophically.In my experience the two are very much the same. In aikido we often discuss how the techniques have a philosophical or spiritual underlying theme. One issue with this in my opinion is that the theories are often only played out in the dojo, in very controlled conditions. Boxing/kickboxing has given me an opportunity to experience budo or philosophical themes in a live environment.
I hope you enjoy the read.
