When I first started in martial arts there was one evening that massivelt influenced whether I would succeed or not.
We had just finished class and had circled up for the finalbit of advice. Shun Shifu Perez had entered and was at the front ready to speak. We all anxiously awaited his wise words.
There were about 30 people in the class. All very new white belts. Enthusiastic and eager.
He told us to look around. To look at each person in the group. To look at their face and make eye contact.
