How many truly gain wisdom in martial arts, Budo? Wisdom is the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgement; the quality of being wise. It embodies a great sense of intelligence, and common sense, including shrewdness, smartness, judiciousness, judgement, and prudence. It is the soundness of an action or decision with regard to the application of experience, knowledge, and good judgement. I would ascertain, that in the Budo, one must apply himself fully and completely in every act to the end. In training, it would mean years and years devoted to the repetition of application of technique towards perfection and one step further; 'To execute without a thought stopping the mind.' Complete exhaustion, where the mind and body become as ONE.
Seek wisdom by scaling the cliff of life, only focused on one thing~ Doing!! Completely!
The Secret is to listen to the Breath during both inhaling and exhale.
