Courage…it cannot be taught but it can be learned ..you cannot teach someone to be courageous but you can inspire them to be so ..you cannot teach someone courage but you can teach them the skills needed to increase confidence and preparedness which over time lends itself  to courage  …But what is courage? it is often referred to as fearlessness …its not … its not the absence of fear or anxiety it is the ability to overcome them …physical courage is bravery in the face of physical pain hardship or even death…Moral courage is the ability to act rightly in the face of popular opposition…Fortitude also described as courage includes perseverance and patience…Winston Churchill once quoted Courage is rightly considered the most esteemed of human qualities because it is the quality the guarantees all others..So how do we learn courage? ..Through training …Practice …Diligent practice …Anyone can practice a virtue haphazardly but to practice consistently requires courage ..Lets look at sparring for example …Do you experience Fear or anxiety when it come to sparring? most do… If not so much now … At some point definitely…How do you overcome that fear …Training …preparation…and not just being prepared but KNOWING YOU ARE PREPARED…i suffered from these same fears and anxieties when i was competing…the fear seems logical because we cannot know the end of anything when we are at the beginning so it eats away at us and we imagine the worst possible scenarios …I overcame the fear by being prepared by leaving nothing to chance by becoming comfortable at being uncomfortable to develop resilience and courage  and having faith and in doing so i have enjoyed many successes…So don’t let fear stand in the way… Rise above it and be COURAGEOUS!!!

PS: Tonight’s BJJ class is taken by Pete and will include flow rolling, revision of last week’s chokes and sweeps plus an extra sweep and an extra choke.
