Your mental approach to class will have a large impact on you as a martial artist. A student with a negative approach tends to “second guess” why the instructor requires a specific drill. This attitude becomes an obstacle that may cause a student to become frustrated or to put only a small percentage of power into his/her techniques.
A positive student will follow his/her instructor proudly, focused on self-improvement and mental growth. The trust the student should have is the belief that the instructor shares the same goal as the student.
