Karate has taught me so many things, but the most important thing maybe just to relax and breath. In the very busy life I live, that will be a very important life lesson for me. Many times I have gotten all worked up over nothing, but I just take a big breath and it all seems a little better. You have to deal with things going on now. You can deal with the events coming after when they happen. Now, just worry about what is going on around you at that second. If someone is attacking you, you can’t think about what you should have done to a void this. You must concentrate on what you are going to do to get yourself out of it.
