The restrictions that we place on ourselves is that which hinders our progress! I'll tell my Karate-ka when training in Kempo I'll present all the questions with the given answers in Kata, One Steps, sparring and in your self defenses! Once you have gotten the technique then that's when I'll change all the questions & answers to the exact same problem! "Is your technique simply a block, parry, trap, jam or is it a destruction?" The correct response is always a resounding "YES!"
It all starts with diet! Your intake is your fuel or it isn't! Be smart, wise and informed!
Once a Black Belt has been achieved they have only graduated from High School! The journey continues for those who'll achieve their BA/BS, Masters or even a Doctorate! Are you a dropout or have you decided to continue that pursuit?
