In karate, a martial artist should learn to develop a Can Do Attitude.
This is an attitude that is void of arrogance or pride. It’s a mindset that says I can move forward and achieve, try, learn, accomplish, fail, and grow. The student of karate is not sure of the outcome but will step through the challenge that is before them.
The Can Do Attitude is a positive way to train your mind. When faced with challenges that are large or small you can choose to have a negative or positive attitude. Either way, the challenge is still there. In order to grow, learn, and succeed a person must keep their mind and spirit lifted high.
Can Do Attitude says that I will not back down, I will not live in fear, and I will face the unknown with confidence.
