As you know, yesterday was Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
I read an amazing quote by the nonviolent activist on my friend Adnan Shamsi’s Facebook status. But I had already posted the day’s message. So today I am sharing it with you; better late than never, right?
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
In martial arts, when you are pushed, PULL and when you are pulled, PUSH.
If your opponent makes bad line calls, should you make bad line calls back?
If your teammates make fun of you, should you make fun of them back?
If someone cuts you off on the road, should you speed up and cut them off?
Of course not, but that happens all the time.
If someone does something bad to you, and you do something bad back, doesn’t that make you just as bad as them?
