"find the way in all things, to master one thing is to master all" this saying has been the driving force behind my training and for the life of me I can't find the exact text that I got it from.
Onegai Shimasu – Will you please teach me (at the beginning of each session)
Domo arigato gozaimashita – Thank you very much (at the end of each session)
Recently I read a book and also watched a movie called “127 Hours”. The storyline is a harrowing account of Aron Ralston, a mountaineer who got his right arm trapped under a boulder in a remote canyon in Utah. This is a story of a man who was trapped and frightened. He was frightened to stay where he was, knowing the chances of any rescue finding him alive to be slim; he was frightened to free himself by cutting through his own trapped limb with a dull blade of his multi-tool.
