..that was the motto of my instructors in today's class. Ok, let me start from beginning. I am due for blue belt test pretty soon. So on Wednesday class I had my prog-check (progress check) done by one of the most vicious, energetic and respected black belt. His feedback was that I am holding back and don't give it my best shot, which translated into layman language means that I don't hit rookies (the volunteer attackers for my test) hard enough even though I have potential to. I have had a past record of hitting people pretty hard when they ask for it (honestly they "Ask for it"..they ask me to hit them harder so I do). So today was my day of hitting brown and black belts hard and on targets!
Honestly, it was fun for me even though those poor guys went double with pain and came back with the feedback that that was really good: on the target and pretty strong as it should be. I did feel guilty to hurt them but oddly enough it was very satisfying to be in control of your attacker and actually hitting them. Its such a big confidence booster! No one dares mess with me now!!
