The Zen of Hard Training

New York Sanda/David Ross published a pretty good blog post today:

Harder Contact = Higher Consciousness

"I’ve said it before, I’ve also found that the nicest people, with the least ego, that I have met in the martial arts are those who have done VERY HARD TRAINING and lots of hard CONTACT SPARRING. The wind bag with the puffed up chest and the ego the size of the great outdoors is always the musical kata champion or the point sparring “world champion” or the guy who swing a neon toothpick around and thinks it’s a staff… Sorry, but it is TRUE."

This one brings up some good points. It is very hard to have an inflated ego when you understand on, a very visceral level, exactly what your limitations are.

Train Hard,
Josh Skinner
