You see most people would write a large ass paragraph but I’m here saying IDK WHAT TO THINK I’M HAPPY AND UPSET AT THE SAME TIME LORD HELP ME.

As martial artists I feel that we put ourselves through stuff that most normal people wouldn’t. For example; we put ourselves through hours of rigorous training a week, we pay training fees that may inhibit us from buying the latest things that everyone else has, we miss nights out with friends or…
I honestly adore this statement despite the fact that I’m a traditional Martial Artist with traditional values in TRADITIONAL Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu (Ninjutsu) whereas by the looks of the tags and the artist this wise person is, as what it seems, a tournament Martial Artist. So I thought I’d add my own little thing to intertwine with this.
There will be sometimes when you, your peers in training, and your teacher will sometimes just sit there and talk and the fees you pay make you think “Why am I bothering if all we do is talk?” Well what it took me awhile to learn is that the best Martial Artists better themselves furthermore by looking into the views of others, what is commonly said as “walking in someone else’s shoes.” By listening and observing, whether it be in a fight situation or a simple conversation, you can understand the situation better and this is what a Martial Artist has to gain through years of training, patience, and a broadened understanding that the artist is willing to constantly adapt, absorb more info, and react. How does this intertwine with what the other guy said? Well my good readers and the person who is possibly reading this that I reblogded this off, it is a mental game you play with yourself throughout the years of training you will face and the constant torments you will surely engage.
