Being a martial arts teacher we wear many different hats. Students and parents will often come to us for advise because we are considered to be “wise.” Unfortunately this will go to some peoples heads.
Have you ever watched a sporting event at a bar or with someone, and there is this guy who can tell you everything the player or fighter is doing wrong, but have never been there himself?
The martial arts industry is worse. The egos expand and opinions are given on things these people know zero about, or they tried and failed so they need to bad mouth it to make themselves feel better.
Well I don’t care except for one thing. They try to limit other peoples lives with their pathetic and limited beliefs.
Become immune to the opinion of others.
Today I saw a comment on our Facebook page on yesterday’s article about 1 second fighting.
It stated basically that this was a “pile of rubbish.” Now I know he did not read the article, and it is kind of cowardly to comment in a different language, but that is OK. I replied and thanked him for his opinion and that I would certainly seek more of his knowledge later.
How sad because here is some, who cannot keep an opinion to himself, in a position were he just may influence someone wrongly.
Talking out of turn……
The martial artists of the world should be above this! Pressure Point study is a controversial topic, but that is because it challenges those who have turned the teaching of the arts into a dogma.
If you are new to the idea of Kyusho Jitsu or pressure points then look into it for yourself. Talk to people who have successful done it!
Don’t be swayed by those who never experience it, or have an failed to do it. Learn from your own experience and not someone else invalid opinion. Model the winners in life, not the failures or wannabes. The failures are the ones who are the loudest.
Become Immune to the “good”opinion of others.
