Hello everyone - some of my favourites;

"Please do not be concerned with soft versus firm, kicking versus striking, grappling versus hitting and kicking, long-range fighting versus in-fighting. There is no such thing as " this " is better than " that". Should there be one thing we must guard against, let it be partiality that robs us of our pristine wholeness and make us lose unity in the midst of duality."

"When, in a split second, your life is threatened, do you say, " let me make sure my hand is on my hip, and my style is 'the' style?" When your life is in danger, do you argue about the method you will adhere to while saving yourself? Why the duality?"

"Knowing is not enough; you must apply. Willing is not enough, you must do."

(All Bruce Lee, afaik).

Others;

"Tomorrows battle is won during today's practice." - Samurai maxim

An old Shaolin saying: "I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times"

(I love that last one - as someone who just can't nail one of the kicks supposed to be on my next grading, I must be getting near the 10,000 mark practicing it [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG] )

"He who asks is a fool for five minutes, but he who does not ask remains a fool forever." - Chinese Proverb

Champions don't have to be TOLD what to do - just reminded…

A good instructor makes himself increasingly unnecessary.

"Beginning is easy; continuing is hard."

The secret to getting ahead is getting started.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.
- Douglas Adams

If something is too hard to do then it's just not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit, and your unicycle, and we'll go inside and watch TV
- Homer Simpson

If at first you don't succeed try again and then give up. There's no point being a damn fool about it

There's no such burden in life, as a great potential.

when it comes to difficult techniques etc. don't say "I can't do that", say "I can't do that YET".
