Consistent Training- The Way of the Warrior
"We take the time to strengthen our Minds, Bodies and Spirits
by physical repetitions of exercises, by mental conditioning and by
careful planning of strategies in order to enjoy a chosen lifestyle.
The battle is not a once in a lifetime desperate confrontation on the
street or in a back alley, rather the battle is every day in the dojo....
The joy flows from the ultimate test of consistent training which creates
a mystical hold on the martial artist. This is the way of the warrior."
(Building Warrior Spirit, Hanshi Robert Scaglione, Chapter 4, Riki/Strength/Power)
The first basic part of our training is to show up for classes on a
regular basis -- at least 2 or 3 classes a week at a minimum. If we
are unable to make a scheduled class due to travel or other commitments
we try to train on our own if possible and to get back to our regular
schedule as soon as possible. (Check your travel schedule to see if
you can include a visit to another SRKUSA dojo on your trip).
