EGO

“Inflated egos are a problem for teachers of the  martial arts […] For those in position of leadership, many of the ordinary avenues for feedback are removed. […] Being the biggest fish in a small pound is rewarding, but all of us in the martial arts must remember just how large the pond really is, and how many centuries of work by previous generations of teachers went into preparing the way for us. Keeping our proper place in mind helps to keep the ego in check.” (Nicklaus Suino)
