You know sometimes in life you have to stop, take pause and look at where you are to see exactly how far you have come!
Take this picture - here we have a scared and skinny, pasty kid from Manchester (who once quit karate because he was knocked out) all grown up and in the company of two of the BEST martial artists on the face of the planet - Grandmaster Darren Tibon of Angels Disciples and Professor James Hundon of UMAA......It's humbling and a little awe inspiring to be around such men, but to actually be classed as their friend and brother?
Mind = Blown
Martial Arts has been such a massive part of helping me overcome my fears, my doubts and my demons and my journey is not even close to being over. I guess when you are facing the right way all you have to do is keep moving forward! When I attend seminars or when I get to hang out with men of this calibre I learn SO much from them, but I am often told that they learn from me too. This is not to brag, but more to say that if the BEST can learn from someone else then you certainly can!
The phrase "I have always wanted to.." should never have "but" attached as a qualifier. If you want to do something you will find a way; if not you will find an excuse. So many people put off starting their journey in martial arts with the usual excuses - "too old", "Too unfit", "too busy" - in fact there are as many reasons as arts, and every single one of them is absolute hogwash! Get out there and do it!
Then you too can be the "grinning eedjit" stood next to the worlds best!
