There is one thing I love to do, which is practice martial arts at night! I am not really sure what it is about, but it gives me a sense of freedom from the outside world. Although I am in the house listening to either Jay Z, Kanye, or Pharrell, My mind is on this steady pace of constant flow streaming through the vains of an ambitious person..
Crazy to say its almost orgasmic (maybe that is not a great analogy), but it is very intimate. Trapping yourself in a room with a motive to become the greatest you can be without any interference.. Just me and the music. The music we often listen to determines our latitude in life. Whether we want to believe it or not, It is the truth!
Music is a huge part of my training. Its where I find my rhythm. Every martial artist and fighter has their own rhythm. This is like the pulse in fighting; without a pulse, functionality is nonexistent! A fighter must use his/her rhythm to attack, counter, evade, and time an opponent. A necessary process which is the foundation of fighting!
Rhythm is also used in peforming in kata (japanese for form). Katas are a sequence of martial art techniques demonstrating attacks, blocks and stances in a dance-like motion. On the contrary, this was not part of my training. I warmed up with cardio movement for about 6 -10 minutes (3 songs). I eventually focused on basic punches and kicks! This can be boring, but you should never lose the sight on your basics! The drilling was the most fun.
I was tired and start to feel my feel to blister. There is no need to stop practicing because there is some one out there who is just as hungry as you aiming for the top! This is not a perfect world and we must push ourselves beyond our limits. It is the only way we shall become better. After 45-60 minutes of working out, my body is feeling terrible. Lord knows my body is gonna go through major aches, but at least afterwards I feel like I can take on the world! The reward is after the hardwork is performed. Alright people lets get it!
