Words from Sensei Jonathan, the Chief Instructor:
“I often ask myself this question, as in life why does only a small portion of people truly succees. The answer is quite simple, if you were to look back on your life how often would you say “if I was to do that again… I would do it differently.” Quite often an opportunity is staring at us in the face, and we are so consumed with everyday life that we ignore it. We simply chose to become stuck in a rut. Those who are successful will tell you that it is not an easy task, so get ready to fail, learn from your failures and each time you do this over time, you will become wiser. You know the saying (learn from your mistakes.) Remember you are going to fail but it’s how you deal with it, what makes the really big difference. This is no easy task and the bigger you aim, the bigger the potential crash and the stress. So how we combat this? How can we overcome this? The answer is right here:
Karate reduces stress, which will helps you maintain a clear thinking head.
Karate is great for exercise as you improve your fitness so does your overall mental state.
Karate teaches that you fail once, and you stand 10 times. Wether a student fails a Kumite competition, or a grading… there is always room for more training, learning, improvement, and perfection.
Karate teaches confidence. A confident you, means you can stand on your own two feet and have the confidence to take those risks.
