Tomorrow’s battle is won during today’s practice. Samurai Maxim

You never know when you will have to depend on the skills that you have developed during your life journey. 

One thing that you can be sure of is that you cannot wait until you need your humanly skills to start training. It is too late to develop your skills at that point in time.

When your enemy attacks, you can’t call “time out” to stretch and warm up; you had better be prepared. This is why it is so important to take your training seriously. 

It is very easy to become complacent in your training, especially when it seems as if you will never actually need to use your martial arts. 
Don’t let this happen.

We have a duty to be in shape and to be ready for whatever may come. We have always to be ready to spring into action at a moment’s notice.

Train today as if you are going to war tomorrow. 

Remember that whether you decide to practice or not, somewhere out there your enemy is practicing hard, honing one skills, and getting ready for one next victim.

Practice hard. 

Always keep in mind why you should take your training “deadly serious.” You can’t wait until the rains come to fix your roof. 
If you do, you will find you have a lot of leaks and a mess to clean up. 

The same applies to your training. If you are slacking off during today’s practice, you will find that you have a lot of holes in your defence during tomorrow’s battle, and maybe a bloody mess to clean up afterwards.
