Action Speaks Louder Than Words
It was a pretty good weekend for Shidokan Atlanta. I took a couple of guys to a local Sanshou tournament. Sanshou is Chinese kickboxing. It allows kicks, punches and throws. My 2 fighters, Chuck and Josh fought in their first tournament of this kind. When we got their, they were treated like neophytes and given the outsiders have trouble with this and we'll be easy on you. In the fighter's meeting, the promoter spent most of the time name dropping who he trained. Anyway, they were suprised as my guys showed them that we can kickbox and throw. Our gym pro, Jaral went to NC on a weeks notice. His opponent trash talks him the day before at the weigh ins and then pulls out of the fight the next day. These are a couple of examples of talking too much. Nobody cares about what you say. It's about what you do. Put up or shut up!
