A good martial artist does not become tense

A good martial artist does not become tense, but ready. Not thinking, yet not dreaming. Ready for whatever may come. When the opponent expands, I contract; and when he contracts, I expand. And when there is an opportunity, “I” do not hit, “it” hits all by itself.

(B. Lee)

Positive thinking

imagesALIXDJ0AAscertain your true nature.[…]

As you think, so you become. Think that you are great, you are great. Think that you are hopeless, certainly you will become hopeless. Don’t give room for negative thinking. Always have positive, positive, positive thoughts.

in Sri Swami Satchidananda (Facebook quotes)

Karate:

– Ego for some

– Practice for others
