Become An Expert At Everything
In today's world of martial arts, MMA is really popular. There are a lot of traditionalist (singular disciplines) that feel you can't become good and several ranges of combat (striking, grappling, take downs, etc.). Being involved with Shidokan (Known as "The Triathlon of Martial Arts"), I go with the philosophy of learning it all together. In my dojo, I have kids learning and competing in knockdown tournaments, point and judo tournaments. The know classical techniques and kata, how to throw a jab, 360 round kicks, Judo and Wrestling takedowns, and more. I have devised a curriculum that develops students in multiple areas all at the same time. It is proven as I have students fighting in boxing, kickboxing, MMA, Judo, submission wrestling, and karate events with success. So, be open to all and learn it all. You have your whole life. Sure, you'll be better at some things than you are at others, but strive to master it all.
