…..A long time ago someone mentioned to me never to stop training. Who it was is not important to you but the message is pretty clear. In the Martial Sciences we are filled with people who used to train. You know when you are out and someone say’s oh I did Karate or insert Tae Kwon do, Jiujitsu, etc. it really does not matter. In the Martial Sciences you either train or you don’t because used to means just that you used to train and the reality is you do not train now. If you are not training then you cannot count on these skill sets. Take for instance the person who trains in their youth and then stops after achieving a black belt. If they stopped are they really a black belt? Will those skills really be there for them if they are in need? The idea of never stopping your training can be daunting but to someone like me it is not even an option. No matter what I will always train. I will always have people around me who want to train and improve. I have to go the extra distance to cultivate this but I will do so. You see early on I took those words of wisdom from one of the Grand Masters that I met. Those words still ring true today! Do not stop training, persever and carry on no matter what!
Never Stop Training!
