Every now and then in your training you will hit a wall where you may not be interested in training or you may simply not be making any progress. You need to know that this happens to everyone that trains in the Martial Sciences. Irregardless of how long they have trained or how highly skilled they are. The key thing is to keep the spark alive enough that you continue forward. Find a way to add some variety into your training or find a way to stimulate interest in training like reading a book, etc. Whenever I have found myself facing a wall regarding lack of interest I have read a novel with the Martial Sciences involved in it. This usually has given me a spark and onto some serious training I would go. When I have faced a wall regarding lack of progress I have always challenged myself in an area of the Martial Sciences where I was less familiar. This is one way where I have been able to keep improving and have a wide diversity in my Martial Sciences skills. No matter what you will hit a wall in your training. What you need to do is have a plan and course of action so that you can get past and around this wall. See you on the mats!
