The reality is, I know what I need to practice, and the skills all boil down to repetition to the point where they become instinctual. Wax-on, wax-off, as Mr. Miyagi said. If anything, going to class is about learning new skills and getting tested, but the core set of knowledge needs to practiced on your own time. This, of course, requires that you want to do it, and discipline and self-motivation are keys to this process. Only then will you be ready, grasshopper.
Now that I’m not going to class, I realize that it is that much more important to practice on my own, so I have been more motivated. It’s nice because the stretching is good for my back, and I get a good workout from it. Plus, I feel I’m getting that much closer to becoming a lethal killing machine. If I practice even once or twice a week, I’m still doing better than I had in the past, so it’s a win-win situation.
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to AchoSan for the pic.
