Photo Op

This is a story.

A student traveled the world and studied with 10 of the greatest living Karate Sensei. When he returned home, he showed his photo album to his friend. There were dozens of photographs of him with each of the famous Sensei.

The friend asked, "So what did you learn?"

"Learn?" said the student.

Training with seniors is an opportunity to learn, not a photo opportunity.


Would you rather have a photo with a senior Sensei or would you rather learn something valuable from him (or her)?
