Discipline week 1.jpg

As we transition into our next rotating cycle, we will be focusing on the Black Belt Mindset of Discipline. Discipline is the ability to do your best, especially during the times when you do not feel like it. To train with discipline becomes especially important when we get into the higher ranks. In the beginning, with the newness of the whole martial arts experience, everything is so fresh and exciting. As we continue on with our training and move up in rank, many of what we learn becomes either a bit more challenging, repetitive or both. Whichever one you experience; it becomes an even bigger challenges to train with discipline. Discipline will play a key factor in your quest towards Black Belt Excellence. Stay tune for next week as we continue our discussion on Discipline.

As for now, we just need to understand, Discipline means “to always do your best.” Especially when you don’t feel like doing your Best.
