Best At Worst

I was watching a commercial for the U.S. Coast Guard recently. The catch-line for the commercial (as I recall) was "when things are at their worst, we are at our best!"

What a perfect saying for Karate students.

When things are at their worst, that is the time for each of us to be at our best. It is the time for us to be calm and focused, to be able to summon all our strength, to be able to evaluate the situation, to be able to do what needs to be done.

Karate training is not only useful to defend against an attack. It should also help us during any natural disaster or emergency. Then Karate training is truly useful!
