Balderdash ....Martial Arts has many conduits, Wisdom being one of them. How can we be so quick to throw away that which may improve ones outlook on life? As does Martial Arts?

Two words of wisdom from myself,

If at all possible, fulfill all of your dreams. Never wonder "What if", it is one of the worst feelings ever.

After a while, give up on people ...You can't help anyone, they can only help themselves.

Oh, one more, sorry ....Mind your own damn business.

Ride ...PC is "Politically Correct". You, my friend, are not PC, but I for one like that. I would be more crude myself, if the fear of people here not taking me seriously wasn't so dominant in my thoughts.

I agree on the hate thing ....I'm one for the balance. Without hate, there can not be love. Without death, there can not be life. In chess, somebody has to take the black pieces. Hate gives you passion, which is only a bad thing if taken to far.

So, another piece of advice ...Moderation is the key.

Good night.

-Ket

The treatment of animals being linked to the treatment of humans is a strongly proved fact. In the pathology of serial killing, almost all such people's first experience of killing was with household pets. Never forget that humans are animals, the fact that we have televisions does not place us above any other creature on the planet.

Hatred is not a 'good motivator'. Real hate is a detructive and distorting force. I'm not saying run around in kaftans hugging trees and singing Crosby stills and Nash numbers, (believe me, if you new me in person you would know I am far from PC), dislike what you will,be angered, feel free to offer attitude adjustment where necessary, but let things run their course. Grief fades, passion fades, laughter stops. Hate is an emotion that never loses its intensity, and will, if left to its own devices encroach on your interactions with all, and in turn, harm your life.

Your parents are the only people with greater life experience than you, that you know for sure have your best interests and happiness at heart, therefore advice from them should carry more weight than from any number of friends who make the same claims

Friendships surviving money problems. Nice in theory, I would reserve judgement till you are chasing your best buddy from school for 1500 ($3000 us) only to find he has neither the means, nor intention to make repayment.
See if he remains on your christmas card list then

You referring to me?

I'll say, take it from the wife.

Anyway, Wisdom is relative. The more the wisdom, the less the relative.

I totally agree that we should keep the MA perspective in this Forum.

So here goes:-

Work hard, especially on your kata, as it the basis for all good things to come, and when it comes, you will know why kata is the way it is.

Wealth should not be a major consideration when you are minded to teach MA. How do you weight in dollars the generations after you that will benefit of what you teach today?

Weather the storms of criticism when you have another new angle to a kata application and someday your application will be the standard.

Win over your opponent in both skill and spirit in any tournament.

Weep only when you have not done the best that you could have.

Wash well your gi but not your belt because some of your past sweat and maybe blood should be carried forward to remind you of where and how you came to be.

Wear a seat belt please when driving or as passenger because destiny awaits you every time you step into a dojo and you need to arrive first.

Wear a helmet when doing serious contact sparring. It is no shame and it also certainly makes you 'braver'

Wait till you are married..... eh.......(give me sometime on this)

Wear a condom......... HELP!

Walk away only if your grappling skills are not up to scratch because 90.506% of fights end up on the ground.

Work it out if somehow your punch lacks that snap and of course find a qualified instruction near you.

By now you should get my drift, if not, go drink lots of water or wine and get married while watching the river, you'll live longer.

Where do you get that from? All fights start standing and there's no way of finding out how many fights end up on the ground.However,I am up to par on my graappling skills.

I am a qualified instructor near me.

What do you know ,now it's getting ma related.

I hate round-kicking animals. Might be because no qualified instructor ever showed me how

Sorry folks, this thread is not MA related so I locking it in accordance with forum rules. Oldman, I think you are an excellent role model for your friend's son. I can see why she chose you.
