Perseverance: What it means to keep going and never quit

perseverenceOne can plainly see the physical benefits of the martial arts but the mental side of martial arts is less apparent. There are many aspects to studying martial arts that are purely for the improvement of the individual spirit, honing the mind in the same way we train our body.

Perseverance is defined as steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty . It is synonymous with tenacity, persistence, and determination. A wise man once said “In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins, not through strength, but through perseverance”

Perseverance is a quality we feel is very significant and humbling here at Ling Kong Institute, and helps to create the next generation of life’s champions – but, of course, perseverance isn’t just about WINNING!, it’s about staying on track and believing in ourselves.ling-kong-logomk1

Remember Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times before creating a working light bulb. If he had given up after one of those ten thousand, we would be sitting in the dark!
