Everyone Loses, Come Back Better

I post many pictures of our fighter’s victories, but I hardly talk about our losses. (That’s Chris pictured after a tournament loss to a very tough opponent) It does happen though…sometimes you don’t quite have your A-game on fight night and often, your opponent just does a better job. However, I truly believe there’s no such a thing as a loss, only a lesson. When we lose a fight, we analyse, we deconstruct and we rebuild into a much improved fighter. You’re only a true loser if you dwell on that loss, make excuses and ignore what you need to do to get better. Everybody loses, everybody hits a wall, everybody fails a test and everyone gets knocked down from time to time. However, the key is to get up, brush off the dirt, learn what you did wrong and come back better next time. This is one of martial art’s greatests lessons and it should be used in all parts of our lives.
