Takeda Shingen, a famous general from the Warring States Period of Japan wrote that “Learning is to a man as the leaves and branches are to a tree, and it can be said that he should simply not be without.” Learning is not something that stops after school, thus by making everything a learning experience one makes that most out of life. Through all my life I have taken the most of all my experiences, a great majority being of the martial arts.
A martial artist that lives his teachings excels in all aspects. I have made this the highest priority, which resulted in my becoming an instructor. Gaining my instructorship has expanded my understanding of the needs for detailed explanation, multi-level task organization, and people skills. This translated not only to teaching but in my interactions with people as a whole. As I grow in my school I am constantly taking on more responsibility to express my abilities to my instructor. In the higher levels of training it is self-discipline that becomes the greatest skill. By not making excuses for mistakes and doing tasks without being told that is what makes a true black belt. That is the essence of self-discipline, doing it without orders.
Taking this attitude into all my studies as an undergraduate student, a graduate student, and a student teacher has further shown how keeping kaizen and self-discipline is the same in education as in martial arts. Life is about continual improvement.
