The Lesson Does Not End | Robert Lara

This is something all of my students should strive for. Your lessons do not end when you walk out of the Dojo.

They have just started.

And it is up to the students to implement the teaching from the Dojo to daily life. You are on the path to mind ,body, spirit unification. And the biggest and baddest enemy you could ever have is right with you. It is the self. You must be fully present in all daily actions or suffer later for not being aware and in that moment. Anything you do, Do it from your center and always extend Ki.

True Victory is self victory!!!

How can we expect to control and attacker when you can control yourself?

“If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your Life.  There are no limits.  There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.”
