What motivates, pushes, or drives you to be the best you can be at your art?

I have to say without a doubt it's my appreciation for my teachers willingness to share their knowledge with me and as a matter of complete respect and gratitude I push myself as hard as I can and attempt to pass on their teachings to the next generation to the best of my ability.

I ask this question because it's amazing to see all of the hard work and dedication put forth by so many that I've seen over the years. Being a self-motivator is very difficult yet we continue to train day in and day out.

So what motivates you to be the best you can be at what you do in the martial arts?

My motivation is that at the end of the day, these arts are fun. I couldn't keep going if I didn't enjoy them at the most basic level. Learning, teaching, sparring, and writing about these arts are fun in a way that allows me to get exercise, manage stress, and develop effective self defense skills.

The answers to this question are also great. It makes me smile to see so much dedication to students and keeping the arts alive.


My motivation is the skill level that I see in my teachers which I would like to have someday.
