Habit and mindset are two very important things to any karateka. Due to the repetitive nature of karate we develop habits. Once a habit is formed it is very hard to break. As Einstein once said the definition of insanity is ‘doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results’. As humans are creatures of habit, this section helps you to train your mind to form better training habits and be as awesome as possible.
Possibly the most important factors for any karateka determination and spirit. These two things can be applied from a sports perspective, where by a lack of determination or a broken spirit can be the difference between winning and loosing, where as in a self defence situation this can have more serious consequences. These tips can aid you to developing a stronger mind and help you achieve both your karate goals and also life goals too.
Overall this book will help all karateka at any stage of their journey to develop and strengthen both physically and mentally.
