This is an amazing talk by an incredible human being, John Wooden, famous basketball coach legend at UCLA. There are so many lessons in this talk and the majority of them apply directly to martial arts training. I pulled a lot of wisdom from this 17 minute talk. Hope you can too.
For reference, here is the pyramid that is held up in the talk. It’s useful to print out and keep handy. Again, it’s surprising how many principles outlined on Mr. Wooden’s pyramid tie directly to work ethic in the dojo.
