In martialarts, we provide assurance that anyone can attain a Black Belt, or any other goal. This is irrespective of age, health considerations or any other hurdles. The only thing required of you is to make a 100% commitment to the process and to fully embrace the challenge. This includes not only the challenges inside the dojo, but also the challenges outside the dojo. We all have family commitments, school, work, extracurricular activities, etc etc. However, if you really want to achieve your goals, you must find a way to adapt to any challenge and overcome.
One of our favourite sayings is “A Black Belt is a white belt who never gave up”. I have never known a Black Belt to have an easy path to that goal. There is always some hurdle/s that get in the way. But having a Black Belt attitude helps you push through anyway. The world makes way for the determined person. The determined person embraces any challenge to “build a better you”.
Use martial arts as a canvas for the rest of your life. If you can embrace and ultimately achieve your martial arts challenges, you can apply the same effort to all challenges in life. Be a Black Belt in every area of your life!
