It’s not the years, belts, titles or certifications to make a warrior but the actual hours of true intense dedication.
In 6DKF, hours of practice can be counted on workout clothes.
Clothes crumpled, faded, ripped, patched and stained indelibly, this is a tangible sign to recognize the true practitioner, the one that has never given up, that never threw in the towel:
- Besides the enthusiasm
- Besides the passion
- Apart from the errors
- Besides the fatigue
- Besides the frustration
- Beyond the pain
- Beyond the limits imposed by the others
- Beyond the limits imposed by the environment
- Beyond the limits imposed by the mind
- Beyond the limits imposed by the body
It’s in this space “beyond” where the true practitioner of 6 Dragons Kung Fu finds his inspiration, his motivation, it is the place where born:
Our minds should not be projected on a goal or a destination, but on a direction, a way. Our path is illuminated by reason, altered by experiences, reworked by creativity.
Errors may appear as useless rough stone but with hard work we can turn each of them into a work of art, in a further step in our martial growth.
