  • Most import lesson learnt

    Hi all,

    What do you feel is the most important thing you have learned from studying martial arts and how has this changed your life?

    Potentiality. Potentiality is defined as 'latent qualities or abilities that may be developed and lead to future success or usefulness.' I myself don't practice, but I am definitely a martial arts enthusiast! And the exciting part about martial arts is discovering what you are capable of. Watching Chris's show, I was always fascinated by the potential that people would unlock in themselves through their art. 'Kung Fu' literally translates to 'great skill developed with effort through time' (roughly). You can make contact with your potential through commitment and discipline!

      Martial art gives us so much... where to start? Community, confidence, self expression. It gives you hero’s to follow and inspire you to grow beyond your self imposed limits. Health and a good mind set, an ability to persevere despite hardships and a unique resilience and self reliance which ultimately allows us to give back to others and to our community

        The best life lesson I received from martial arts is when my instructor said to me “everything is temporary, apply this to everything you do”. When things are bad in life or you feel your arms starting to give when your holding a plank position, don’t dwell on it. When things are good, make the most of it. If you don’t understand something straight away, you will at some point.

            A few important things I have learned and used well
            - Misdirection - making someone laugh or confused by moving, talking changing facial expressions, gestures is a great way to disarm a fight before it kicks off. that comes from...
            - Centering - finding your core, and sitting there, just allowing everything to flow around you, and being in it and part of it all. Letting things take their course, which empowers you to....
            - Co-operate - give and take consciously with everyone you can. Share energy in conversation, in effort, in work and play. Be generous, and people gift you their energy when it is needed.

              Another bit of advice I cherish and use whenever I meet new people, though its easy to forget or fail - don’t be a Full Cup! Let your partner or new teacher pour their knowledge or lesson into you. This means saying little. Paying attention and asking relevant minimal questions.

              be an empty cup!
