You can’t be an expert in everything, but try to be a beginner at nothing.

By Practical Kata Bunkai on In this short video I discuss why we can’t be an expert in all aspects of the martial arts, but there is value in endeavouring to be a beginner at nothing. We should choose the aspect that most relates to our personal training goals and interests and seek to excel at that, whilst also ensuring we have a degree of ability in the other aspects. This is particularly important for the self-defence side of things where a total lack of knowledge and ability in a given aspect could be our undoing. It’s also fun to cast our “net of knowledge” that little bit wider too! It can help us contextualise our core skills better and it can add variety to training. We can’t be an expert at everything, but we can seek to be a beginner at nothing! I hope you enjoy the video! All the best, Iain My Newsletter: My App: Shop:
