Let’s add that to Yoda’s line.
We all know this. It just became more real to me last night. Sparring really is like life, accelerated. You learn about yourself in that short amount of time.
I’ve always hated take downs because i’d always just get smashed or hurt at sparring. So I was always scared to do take downs. I would always hesitate.
I’ve been learning more wrestling take downs recently. And last night, I was doing a lot more combinations. I was more effective.
The only reason I was more aggressive was because I knew more techniques. I switched from move to move in case I wasn’t comfortable. Before, I’d do one move, stay there and they could easily stuff me.
Now that I know more, I can do more. And because I can do more, i’m less afraid. Because I’m less afraid, i’m more aggressive. Because i’m more aggressive, i’m more effective.
