Two Weeks in Hell

“Two Weeks in Hell” a history channel documentary on becoming a “Green Beret”. Just watched this show and I think it speaks volumes about our society. It is an example of why we should uphold the highest of standards in promoting to the Black Belt. Just like the special forces in the military, earning a Black Belt, is an honor, few accomplish it and not every person who starts will complete it. I am tired of the individuals who learn a couple lessons in the martial arts and then motor their mouth about how much they know. Within the safety of an unverified log on user name people can become experts in their own minds. This is dangerous as this leads to all kinds of false and delusional personality traits.

In the “Two Weeks in Hell” a history channel documentary, more than 1/3 of the candidates dropped out puking in the first two hours of a two week evaluation. It’s certainly alright to want to be something special and admirable to go for the top, but be realistic. Our society has warped this value. Students passing every grade regardless of their grades, many martial arts schools promoting for money, everything from the “I did my homework patch” to belts to students who didn't even attend class. Uphold the honor and tradition of the “Black Belt”; only promote those who have the qualities it takes to be one.

For beginners...

Don’t think because you did something once you’re an expert at it – this is a big problem with many programs today. It takes practice, experience and repetition. Sometimes it’s boring however that push through the boring repetition builds character. When you have that life’s experience then you will have a different outlook on the product, the result and person who does it too.

Train the way you fight...

Train the way you fight. Some martial artist just practice forms and think they can fight. Their outcome will not be the “Karate Kid”. You have to train like you fight and then fight like you train. It’s an historical fact proven throughout mankind’s history.
