Every Action Becomes a Habit

National Karate Association

Are you looking to get better at budo? 

Do you want to strengthen your mind?
 
Whether you practice your kata correctly or just go through the motions, you will have spent the same amount of time in the dojo. In the first case, you will have moved one step closer to mastery of the kata, but in the second case, even though you have gotten a little exercise, you will have moved your training backwards. This is because, in the dojo, every action becomes a habit. 
 
Building on a good habit is much easier than overcoming a bad one. It is said that if you practice a skill incorrectly one thousand times, you will need two thousand correct repetitions to learn it properly. This may be a slight exaggeration, but experience shows that most students who do not learn to monitor themselves and focus on practicing correct technique never get very good. If your training is worth doing, then it is worth doing right, and you will get much more satisfaction if you can see progress because of your hard work. The sooner you decide to make every training session better than the one before it, the sooner you will begin to make real progress.
