Welcome to Episode #117 of the Fight for a Happy Life podcast, “Bad Advice in the Martial Arts.”
You get a lot of advice as a martial arts student… you probably give a lot of advice, too! But is it possible that all of that good advice is actually bad advice?
In this episode, I’m examining five pieces of popular advice that might not be helping anyone. In fact, these teaching clichés might be making your life harder! Here are the five suspects—
- Don’t use so much muscle.
- Leave your ego at the door.
- Stop doing the same technique–try something different.
- Don’t give up.
Any of these sound familiar? 🙂
Don’t get me wrong—there are good intentions behind all of these training tips, so I’m not saying you’re a bad person for repeating them. But I am saying that there’s a right time to share these words of wisdom and a wrong time… it’s that crucial judgment that makes the difference.
