    words of wisdom

    Have any of you guys had an instructor / teacher who said something that has stayed with you for the rest of your training days?

    My first ju jitsu instructor had a few, including the gems "pain rules", and "when in doubt, throw."

    One of my uncles back in the Phils, who claimed to be a grandmaster ( along with every other old man in my village ) said to me "you teach me japanese style, I teach you pilipine style".

    Any others?

      Everyone says that one.

      My instructor did the classic "you're screwed speech" before my first fight. [thai accent] This man have only couple fights, maybe only 30 fights [/thai accent]


      Ooooh, the best one was "If you no drop him, you no come back to my corner".

              - Don't catch a train on the way to a party
              - Don't go to a party where everyone is a blackbelt.

              I always follow these rules. You should too.

                Highkicks are pretty but if you hit nothing but air, your opponent will at best catch a cold

                          (during some shadowboxing) What are you fighting? A giant??

                          Stop painting the walls and start punching. (in case of sloppy hooks and uppercuts)

                          That's a punching bag, not a pushing bag.

                          When he hits you, just hit him back. Just make sure you hit him last.

                          When I say we will practice a certain combo, don't always do what I say or your partner will start expecting it.

                          When your partner leaves a hole in his defence, hit him. Next time, hit him harder. Eventually he will block.

                          Good breathing is important, but don't breath harder than you're punching.
