Rocky Wisdom

Fact is, you will have bad training sessions, you will encounter nights when you don’t want to walk out of your house.  The winner spirit quietly goes through the routine and gains experience. Even if it’s bad practice, it’s still practice and overcomes a night  where you sat on your bum at home eating cocoa puffs and THINKING about the reps you could be doing at the gym. You’re growing bigger and better every time you practice the art that you know. If you are a painter even if you paint brown and black stripes you learn something about technique when you pick up your brush.

Moral of the story:  throw your kicks, even if they aren’t perfect they are YOUR kicks. Paint your portraits, make it your own.  “It ain’t about how hard you can hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!”

 

the reason people fight

As Billie Jean King said, “a champion is afraid of losing, everyone else is afraid of winning.” In a winner’s heart, they aren’t satisfied with being second best; they want to be first place. No one wants to be ordinary; it is our nature to strive to be awesome.

People fight for every reason out there. Some fight because of bad reasons while others fight for good ones. They fight to regain control that was taken from them as kids, or they fight to prove themselves to others. Some people fight to hurt others and thereby take out their frustrations, while in grappling you can do the same things in searching for submissions and not beating the guy bloody. The reasons people fight vary as much as the weather and are defined by the person and life experiences of the person. MMA or any fighting arena is a great outlet for people who came from bad pasts or just has some things to get off their chests.
