|Always...it's better for you to train than teach.|
Miyazato Eiichi sensei had a favourite saying..."Just do it!" When training seems tiring, just do it. When it's cold, just do it, when it's too hot, just do it. When you fail a grading test...just go ahead and do it. Just do your training no matter what life drops in front of you.
In my book, Shin Gi Tai, I offer a couple of examples of when life hit me too hard, I staggered, and for a brief moment was stopped in my tracks....but on each occasion, I heard my sensei telling me what to do..."Just do it!" It wasn't a "Use the force Luke" moment, it was more a feeling that even in the darkest of times I could raise a faint smile by thinking of the good rather than focusing on the bad.
Karate training is not complicated, except that we make it so; if doubt appears, if troubles arise, acknowledge them...then go training! If you can do that, you will learn more about your 'true' self in that single act, than you can imagine.
