I find Karate and martial arts to be a quite competitive atmosphere. It’s an art where I am constantly fighting and competing with myself, to surpass my own records and expectations every time I train. I strive for excellence, in everything that I do at the dojo, even on days where I don’t feel like going 100%. This is because it’s the only way to keep up with my peers, and not leave myself disappointed in my own performance. Whether I only improve the smallest torque in my punches or make my katas just a little bit sharper each time, I demonstrate my excellence through my constant refusal to give anything less than my full effort.
