I have learned alot about life from studying the martial arts. There is a difference between knowing and applying. We all have the urge to obtain the knowledge based on the ethics of life, but how are you going to apply it? Talk is cheap; I rather splurge with my actions (call me money hungry)!
You can have all of the knowledge about the martial arts, fashion, life, etc, but does your skill equate with this so-called knowledge you giving? Its nice to say you want to be a champion, but its the application to mobilize these desires to become fruition or know about fashion, but you have no sense of style! Application is the culmination of knowledge. Its best to let our actions (skills) speak more than our mouths.
