A FEW WORDS OF BEFORE YOU BEGIN THE JOURNEY TO LEARN JLBC Martial Arts


A FEW WORDS OF BEFORE YOU BEGIN THE JOURNEY TO LEARN JLBC Martial Arts:

JLBC Cadets, REMEMBER, this is for you cadets, so don’t cheat yourself! Always push to give 110% during training and practice. You may think this is generic advice, but understand that when JLBC Cadets become involved with structured programs, they become creatures of routine and may do just enough to get by or complete a challenge. That’s not how it works in JLBC martial arts. You have to go above and beyond just getting by to get something good enough to pass. JLBC Martial Arts skills are learned and then adjusted and refined over time and years of continual practice of the JLBC Martial Arts Techniques. Remember JLBC Cadets, you’re not doing this to pass a JLBC Martial Arts test or get a JLBC belt; you’re doing this to learn the JLBC Martial arts period!

JLBC Cadets practice at home and attend JLBC Martial Arts class as often as possible. The skills learned in the JLBC martial arts system need lots of attention, and therefore you need to put aside a lot of time to practice. Supplement every hour of JLBC Martial Arts class time with at least one or more hours of practice on your own. Honestly, one hour of class equals four or more hours of extra training outside of class for severe practitioners. DO NOT rely on types alone. The JLBC Martial Arts classes are guides, much like this this post or JLBC booklet. A JLBC Martial Arts skill is taught, and you must continually practice it.

JLBC Cadets Don’t feel stupid or silly carrying out the JLBC etiquette and customs recognized by the JLBC Martial Arts system. You may feel odd saying yes sir or no ma’am to another JLBC Cadet unless you come from a military background. It may seem goofy to bow to another individual, a room, or a group of people you don’t know yet, but keep in mind that the etiquette and customs are followed to foster a respectful learning environment. Without this expected behavior, it would be next to impossible to run large classes where each person can hear instructions or see how to do something. Do not mistake respect for submissiveness. When you bow to another person, you are not pledging your obedience; you acknowledge a reference for that individual. That’s it.

Last but not least, READ THIS WHOLE JLBC book and website!
