Today I had a really nice workout- again.
One of the good things of training alone is that I have so far been able to adapt my workouts to factors like space, time and what I had available.
I do- however- have a strong preference to a wide open space where I can let loose with all my kicks.
It has been a while since I have seen the inside of a dojo. I have never stopped training, though.
Your instructor can teach you, guide you and even coach you, but he cannot train on your behalf. And- even if he (or she) did- it would not help you even one bit.
A large part of the learning you do in martial arts comes from your own work in any event.
Besides training- any style of martial art has things that you leave in the dojo (like sparring), but also things you take home with you- like strength, fitness, knowledge, inner calm and so forth.
What do you take home with you?
I'd love to see your comments here or on G+ or on Facebook.
