Canadian Motivational Speaker
As promised, I will share another personal story of mine that involved GUIDANCE. Last time, I revealed one involving my first snow skiing experience with guidance. This time, I will pull a story out from my martial arts background which is what most people see this Canadian motivational speaker from.
When I was with the Canadian National Karate Team, one of our coaches told me that my martial arts bo staff weapon routine had too many different techniques in it. He thought that it looked too convoluted.
I didn’t really know what to think of this but when I went home to review video footage with his comments in mind, he was absolutely RIGHT!
I just couldn’t see this with my own eyes. I needed a pair of external eyes to catch my flaws. I was not able to do this on my own.
So I cut out a few of the weaker techniques and retained only the strongest ones. The result was a much more competitive routine and I became a more consistent winner in competition.
This improvement was due to the direct GUIDANCE I had. Like my previous snow skiing example, this martial arts story was yet another area where I had major success due to somebody helping me out.
In many of my talks as a Canadian motivational speaker, I stress the great importance of being with like minded people to help you with your goals. This latest example clearly showed just how effective this is.
I probably would not have experienced these successes as fast or at their higher levels if I did not have any guidance or coaching.
Canadian Motivational Speaker In Martial Arts Video
Now for your entertainment, especially if you have never seen a full martial arts weapons routine (or form as we call it) before, here’s a martial arts video of my bo staff form from several years back.
My routine has since changed quite a bit to become even better (as a result of FURTHER COACHING no doubt) but I don’t have any recent martial arts video yet. However, the one captured in this video is the routine I used for many years in competition.
As before, feel free to leave any comments or your examples below where you benefited from guidance or coaching.
