Nice vs Tough

When I get new students, I am always very happy to find nice ones. Sometimes I find tough ones.

I always say that it is easier to make a nice student tough than it is to make a tough student nice. When a nice student learns Karate, you can be pretty sure that he or she will only use it for self-defense. With a tough student, you have to constantly emphasize restraint.
