Show Notes

After the emotional ride of a martial arts belt test or tournament, we sometimes get caught up in our feelings and thoughts about the event. Whether we dwell on our mistakes or revel in our successes, we risk stagnating if we spend too much time focusing on these feelings about our performance. Join me in this episode as I explain a helpful activity that we can do after every tournament and belt test, and even after every training session. This activity can help us improve our confidence and devise a plan of action so we can keep moving forward towards mastery in martial arts.


Thank you for joining me on my martial arts journey, and in the exploration of all the ways we can perform better in life and martial arts.
