RANK AND TITLES
In the Martial "Arts", you hear about titles, rank, and where uniforms and rituals accent the training. Respect is sometimes given automatically, through inexperience rather than seeing, feeling and believing. After all one doesnt know what he doesn't know ! So assumtion is first hand.
What I just wrote is how an inexperienced person AND unfortunately some experienced people, approach Instructors, Trainers, and the Martial "Arts" as a whole.
Many so called instructors go by many "Titles and rank, Grand Masters, Masters, MOTT's, Datus, Day 3"s, Day befores, Day afters, whatever you want to call them.
I say, "train for the sake of training, and being the best you can be" Promote what you Teach n Do, rather than yourself !!!!!
I say "skill is rank", and if your gonna talk the talk, you better be prepared to walk the walk.
How do you know you can fight if you never fight ?
"you cant go swimmimg and not get wet". tm and "If you touch me..... I will touch you back !!"
Theres only one way.............."if you see it taught , you see n feel it fought! "
Havin been there, both on the street and in the ring, I can tell you that the way you train, is the way you react!!!!! unless you've been there you havent a clue !!!!!!!!!
