Train to Never Quit!

I had a chance to meet up with Master Reyes,he certainly is a shining example of "training to nevder quit".

So why bother going to 7th dan?

As well as challenging myself I have to sincerely say its all about my students. There is nothing I ask of them that I would not do myself and that includes training and working towards my next level.

Is it about the belt?

Certainly not,its about sharpening the sword,its about constant and never ending improvement,its about growth and inspiration which quite frankly cannot be shown by simply wearing a belt.

Last but not least its about the training, I aim for my students and my industry peers to see and know I am active and always working.Winning respect and self respect is everything to me. Its almost 30 years in the making so its something that did not happen over night.....infact as I reflect I am amazed at all the things I have been through and how quickly it has gone.

Now its time to enjoy that wonderful view from the top of the mountain and live the martial arts for life!
