Focus on: Freedom
“Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.” -Mahatma Gandhi
In Martial Arts, freedom can be perceived as achievement. When one gains freedom, they feel free, not constricted, and independent to control their own lives.
Training in the Martial way teaches us to work for our goals, be diligent and true toward it, and that success will come. That success is like the freedom we feel when we are no longer held back by the chains of struggle and difficulty.
Receiving a Black Belt is the beginning of another road, but also the end and an accomplishment of another. How this is perceived as freedom and independency for any Martial Artist is understood, but in different contexts.
Bullying is a major problem in our general society and Martial Arts provides ways to overcome it, whether with or without physical altercation. The freedom from bullying and its evil effects can change the lives of many children across the world. That is why the philosophical approach within Martial Arts works so well, no matter what the subject is.
Strive to be the best, strive to take down what holds you back, and strive to take control of your life. The freedoms you adopt from it will lead you far.
