The mind always fights the body. Regarding courage: I've taught students with disabilities. blind/one leg/ one arm/ cerebral palsy/ burn victims/ & others who fight the winds of adversity. They always attack that which attempts to hold them back.
"What comes from the Heart, Goes to the Heart."
Great enterprise comes from hard Austerity training and painful sweat. Make training & your teacher your best friend & the Heavy bag your worst enemy. Karate will never let you down..!
Comments: The mind strives to return to familiarity. Simply, you must force it to go against itself and Will; thereby developing a body that responds to positive influence. If not, you are always left as victim to your circumstances. Change the mind by changing the thoughts. Make it through the pain. Welcome adversity.
