Always A Student And Never A Master
When will you master something? Never. Sure you will get the basics down and understand what you are doing. You will have mixed theory with practical experience. But, it is still not perfect. I have had the opportunity to see the best of the best train in multiple disciplines (World Champions, Olympians, contenders, etc.). The thing they had in common was that they worked the basics. No special, secret training method. Just good old hard work. The hard work you always learn something new. Through working with students and training partners you will learn something new. Trying other martial arts you will learn something new and gain another perspective of what you already know. When you stop training and start talking more that walking, you get the master/expert syndrome. Always be the student.
