Catching a Cold

One of my sensei used to say that you must not be training right if you catch a cold. I used to think that he was exaggerating.

Now I realize that he was right. Karate involves your whole life -- not just punching and kicking. Your health is part of Karate. If you catch a cold, you have to ask yourself whether you have been taking the best care of your health. Have you been eating the right food, taking vitamins, drinking enough water, getting enough rest, etc.?

You are responsible for your own health. If you catch a cold you must not have been training right.
