Martial arts training is a life long exercise that tests a person's heart and soul on every level. Only the most dedicated students start to see things clearly many years after they start. The training is very physically demanding and can be quite difficult, and is not something a student or a prospective student should enter into lightly. Know that the mind of a student does not pursue things such as fame, social groups, money, or other distractions. Train hard and in the right way and the treasures that are hidden within the arts may reveal themselves to you over time.
