Years back when I was in Jitsu, there were few precious values that I have learned from them. The way the lesson was conducted really scare us off.
Arranging the mats was also part of the training. pic take from (here)
Once we stepped on the mat, we would be in the whole new world. The nonstop training (read-torture) was really worth every penny that we pay.
The extreme was that we didn’t even have the time to think about the move that was taught, We were asked to let the body and muscle do the thinking and memorising. Talking to each other and taking time to take breath was out of question.
It would be really great if this kind of positive attitude can be practiced in our gelanggang.
