Article on the Secret to Getting Your Black Belt

Hey everyone, Grapple Arts has an article on the secret to getting your black belt.

…It’s really just show the hell up.

It’s showing up on the good days and the bad days- it’s weathering the periods of time where you feel unsure about yourself and a total klutz and you start to wonder about maybe seeing a doctor about your sudden and very noticeable lack of coordination.

It’s about not just physically entering an academy, but also being mentally present, willing to learn, be proven wrong, and a willingness to dust yourself off and try again. When you are open to learn, you have opportunities to improve, even if it may seem like a small improvement, it’s still movement forward, and just one step closer to black belt.

Anyway, check the article out and have a great day everyone!
