Sometimes I wish I was born a century ago were on the street you wouldn’t have been stabbed or shot to death. Its sad to think how hard we train in both physical fitness and martial arts to be an ultimate human weapon. But in today’s society whats it worth? When we can be beat by muscles in a finger, simply pulling a trigger.
I feel as if all dedication and respect for martial arts has been lost, not that i can say i know since i have only been in this world for 17 years, but this is my opinion. Smart arses showing off moves to become popular, dickheads thinking they are like Bruce Lee because they trained in a martial art for like a month, and what annoys me the most is people showing disrespect for a martial art when they know nothing about it or havn’t even trained in it.
I guess it doesn’t bother me that much,since I’m not the type to start on someone for no reason. Martial Arts means a lot to me, training is like an escape and there is no better feeling than working out and dripping in sweat. The feeling is indescribable.Feeling on top of the world while people are most likely at home sitting on their arse.
The body is a vessel for the mind, and I feel as if we must train it and nurture it. This is why i love the human body and fuel it with what it needs. Knowing that it will also make me live longer makes it more worthwhile.
