10 Commandments for Being a Master Warrior

Do you want to be a master martial artist? Do you want to walk the warrior's path correctly?

Here are many of the key points I share with my students, both personal and online subscribers, again and again. I've adopted a different presentation style to wake you up from the "been there, heard that" mentality that you might have slipped into by now.

1. Thou Shalt Know The Dangers in Your World and Focus on Being Able to Handle Them FIRST!

2. Thou Shalt Train With Your Teacher as Much as Possible

3. Thou Shalt Study The History of Your Techniques to Understand the Technology

4. Thou Shalt Not Expect Instant Results (Development takes time).

5. Thou Shalt Practice Consistently and Earnestly. (Practice makes perfect but, ONLY when you practice perfectly!)

6. Thou Shalt Not Misuse Your Skills (Insure that only those doing damage, receive your own).

7. Thou Shalt Not Take Short Cuts (It only slows your progress in the long run).

8. Thou Shalt Strive to Understand the Concepts and Principles at the Heart of the Forms.

9. Thou Shalt Get Training and Perspectives from Many Sources.

10. Thou Shalt Run All Lessons Through Your Own Experience (No blind obedience - it's your life!). No experience? Get some or make sure your teachers have enough for BOTH of you!

If you want to be a master, not just of the martial arts, there are things that you must do.

No exceptions.

No excuses.

Start now by "walking the talk" and thinking, feeling, and acting like a student who wants to be a master warrior. I've often discussed one of my favorite sayings which more than applies in this instance. It says that...

"... What you're doing speaks so loudly that I can't hear what you're saying!"

You are in control of your destiny. As Richard Bach pointed out again and again in his books like, "Illusions,"...

"...we design our lives through the power of our choices."

So, choose!
