Training Philosophies and Proverbs


Training deals not with an object,

     But with the human spirit and human emotions.


One trains neither for self or others - in true training,

     One trains for training's sake.


The mastery of proper fundamentals and their progressive application,

     Is the secret of being a great fighter.


Endurance is lost rapidly if one ceases to work at its maintenance.


The best form of endurance exercise is the performance of the event.


Attain stillness while moving,

     Like the moon beneath the waves that ever go on rolling and rocking.


Skill is best acquired by learning accuracy and precision first,

     Before the skill act is attempted with much speed and power.


To become a champion requires a condition of readiness that causes the individual to approach with pleasure even the most tedious practice session.

     The more "ready" the person is to respond to stimulus,

The more satisfaction he finds in the response,

     And the more "unready" he is,

The more annoying he finds it to be forced to act.


One can only develop an instinctive sense of distance,

     If he is able to move about smoothly and speedily.


Always seek good balance in motion and not in stillness.
