> I think everyone should believe that their school is the best, it's good for their sprit. I also believe that everyone
should also believe that there are many schools just as good as theirs and of many different styles.
> Never criticize one's technique, if they can successfully apply it.
> I find it irritating when someone who is relatively young tells me they are a black belt, but they haven't trained in
many years. My opinion is that they are not a black belt. If one trains most of their life, then slows down as age
increases, then it is understood that the physical aspect may be gone, but the mind and spirit of being a black
belt is still there. You would not believe how many people I come across telling me that they are a black belt,
but they haven't trained since they were i.e. 11 years old. If a person makes black belt and then stops totally
in the martial arts, then the best they can say is that at one time in their life, they attained the rank of black belt.
> It's never to late to start training in the Martial Arts.
> Being a good Martial Artist goes well beyond being skilled in Self Defense. A Martial Artist must posses a spirit
within the Martial Arts that last a life time.
> It is easy in the martial arts to make an excuse to miss a class. It is hard for a martial artist to make an excuse to
miss a class.
