Tonight’s Contemplation
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 
Often in the do-chang, I witness someone’s true test of character when they are struggling with a technique or completely exhausted after a conditioning drill. Think about the words from Dr. King’s quote and think about how you can use them as motivation for your martial arts training. 

It was great to already see a few of you back on campus for class this past Saturday!
