Bits of Inspiration

..because we all need them =)

Just want to quote what was said to us during training last Tuesday (Loosely quoted, since my memory of it has faded a bit, but correct me if I'm wrong) :

"You want capoeira. You come here for capoeira. The first thing that you must change is your attitude towards training. Not thinking that 'Wah training so shiong, don't want to come ah..' If you think like that, you fail. You fail to understand that the human body is so tough. It can take a lot of things."

Since long ago, I wholeheartedly believe that the human body is tough, but that belief was only manifested in eating whatever roadside food I desire when I go back to Indonesia.. Time to apply it to a different matter..

Well, to encourage all of us to stick t the training regime when the going gets tough, here's a video just to remind ourselves just how beautiful capoeira is, just how worth it are those physically and mentally demanding sessions when we bit by bit gain power, control and balance..

Training gives us an outlet for suppressed energies created by stress and thus tones the spirit just as exercise conditions the body."
- Arnold Schwarzenegger

"If you train hard, you'll not only be hard - you'll be hard to beat."
- Herschel Walker

"Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it will last forever."
- Lance Armstrong
