Systema Training as a Gift
There is a famous Japanese proverb that says, “After winning the battle, tighten your helmet.”
In other words, the battle does not end when you win. The battle only ends when you get lazy, when you lose your sense of commitment, and when you stop paying attention. The act of living with alertness regardless of whether the goal has already been achieved.
We can carry this philosophy into many areas of life…
“The battle does not end when you publish a book. It ends when you consider yourself a finished product when you lose the vigilance needed to continue improving your craft”
The enemy of improvement is neither failure nor success. The enemy of improvement is boredom, fatigue, and lack of concentration. The enemy of improvement is a lack of commitment to the process because the process is everything. This lesson is one repeated over and over every time students come for Systema training practice at FightClub. It’s amazing what can be accomplished with just commitment.
I like to think of Systema training as a gift. A gift that we all share and spread to as many people that we know can benefit. Don’t let your friends and family fall prey to the drudgery, boredom, and fatigue of life. Get them to try classes and make a step in a positive direction.
