Black Belt Obsession

I found this quote on a Martial Arts Philosophy site.

The Black Belt Obsession

“If the only reason you want to do martial arts is to get a black belt to show off to your friends, then save yourself (and your teacher) the time and the trouble and just go buy one. Because if that is your only focus you are going to miss the real value behind the art. The day that you practice for the sheer joy that comes from the practice itself, is the day you truly become a martial artist.”
