IRT on many levels is a very comprehensive martial system. Practitioner’s of it simply cannot expect that they will be the best at every part of it. Certainly they can be good or better than good in most areas but they will always have areas where they may be weaker at. That is actually one of the strengths about what we do. We can always work to improve and get better in some area. That includes everyone and especially myself. Yes, I have a lot to work on personally. When I am training I constantly re-evaluate what I am doing, experiment and of course train with experts in their field to learn myself. I am a specialist in several areas but I am always trying to get better in the areas where I am weaker. So while you may not be the best at everything you do in the Martial Sciences you certainly can try to improve in every area. Even areas where you are very good! If someone has trained with me and is getting good. It would be good for them to train with Gary Haffey, Kerry Krick, Scott Sober or Tony Kriby, etc. to get a different approach on material they have already learned and fresh ideas or a different perspective. This system of Martial Science is really broad. It is a big system with a lot of components to it. At its core it is really simple but it takes awhile to get the core fundamentals down. Once you have them down though then you can begin to specialize and get really good in a few areas. While you might not be the best at every area you certainly can work hard to improve your weak points! In the Martial Sciences you will not be the best at everything but you certainly can work hard to be very, very good in a wide range of areas!
See You On The Mats!
