- Move from easy to difficult, and from simple to
complicated. More time is
required to train longer and harder as you progress. Do not hurry or engage in senseless or reckless
practice. Develop gradually.
- Become familiar with the use of the makiwara and other
training equipment. Train
yourself to use your firsts, body and positions. Be patient and study earnestly the katas and matches.
Do not aim for hurried success.
- In the past, a single kata was studied for three
years. A long time ago a
particular master analyzed a single kata for ten years.
Do not think you have mastered a kata and become proud of your
success. Pride will lead you to
hurt your achievement in virtue and technique.
Thus pride can be like a poison to the world.
- Take care not to develop only your favorite technique,
neglecting others, because that will leave a weakness in your defense.
Be cautious about becoming too theoretical or technical because these
too are weaknesses.
- Ask questions freely of the master or superior because
you must strive to understand what you are learning.
