Life always contains cycles of good times and bad. During either period, we only have control over one thing, our own behaviour specifically our reaction.
Realising this truth, great martial artists choose to develop habits, which lead them in the direction they wish to go. Once they determine their path, they stay diligent in their disciplines and choices.
Everyone has heard the phrase, “attitude is everything” but nothing sums this concept up as well as the Japanese word, Kaizen.
More than just a word, Kaizen represents a philosophy of commitment. The person makes a resolution to never stop improving.
