I think people know boxing, kick-boxing and grappling (wrestling), but some of them do not know about MMA. It is Mixed Martial Art, which means mixing everything.

I started MMA in 2009 when I was in my first year. Before I began MMA, I thought it was just an exercise because I had experienced several martial arts in Korea. However, it kindly made me change my mind through hard work. Even though it was a very hard workout, I fully enjoyed that because I could show what I got as I practiced (like studying) when I got to sparing with someone. If you watch MMA, it could look like a street fight. But, it includes boxing, kickboxing and grappling skills, which means it is very complicated and sophisticated. To reiterate my point, it demands every skill.

While working out at my MMA club, I sometimes think of words such as convergence, evolution and change - all used in current technology. It has changed from thick boxing gloves to open finger gloves, needs more speed and demands various skills.

It is a poor idea to lie to yourself.

I strongly agree with that topic. Everybody knows that it is stupid behaviour, which not only cheats yourself, but also has negative effects on your future.

I think people lie to themselves to avoid some moments, or a mistake, or something that they have to do. It is also related to diligence. When I was in high school, I thought of how to study efficiently. The idea that I came up with was to have a break time for efficient study before start studying. The short answer to that idea was to spoil myself. Whenever I began to work, I took a break, and I felt like being lazy. It was all part of getting into practice. I just postponed my work that I had to do by cheating myself. In other words, I fell into sweet temptation and deceived myself.

Someone said that if standing, you want to sit on a chair, if you sit on a chair, you want to lay down, and if you lay down, you want to fall asleep.

You will be there, as you said
There are so many different types of people in the world. Some people are always complaining about something, and they sometimes shoot profanities at others. On the other hand, people who are talking about possibly bright futures bring hope to us; and they have not only confidence, but also belief in themselves. I think it is what they are that shows their future.

From my experiences: I started with a middle point between negative and positive, and I went through life the way that I wanted to be and believed. When I decided to come to Cape Town, I did not have anything. All I had was merely belief in studying abroad.

The most important thing is your belief about what you want and believe. If you believe, what you thought and said, it will happen in the future. Trust yourself and get assurance about what you wanna be or who you wanna be.

The sound of one hand clapping

It is definitely impossible to clap with one hand. However, it can be possible to make sound, if you use your body. That is to start thinking of transition.

People usually make sound with their hands clapping, and they are accustomed to doing it so. I think it is one of the stereotypes in our life, which means people are still trying to find perfect preparation of sound. But there is no perfect preparation and correct answer in the world.

Even though you are not perfect, just show what you are and present your way to the world. The world does not ask you to bring routine ideas but your own novel ones. Do not be afraid if you do not have things in common.

A reason why you should concentrate on work

Are you good at concentrating on something? I am not asking you about IQ, EQ, or your ability; but rather, how much you are focusing on your life.
I want to tell you something true. When a lion in the wild world hunts a rabbit, there are more failed hunts than successes. Because a lion runs for a meal like lunch, but for a rabbit, it is a matter of life and death.  The lion is focusing on a rabbit to sort out a meal.
From that story, I want to focus on a lion in terms of concentration. If you work roughly, you cannot get anything. Once you concentrate on a target, you can reach your goal faster and more efficiently.

Not all who wander are lost

Sometimes, we realise that there are lots of things within which we cannot do more than we can do - whether it is work related or a personal problem. In this situation we usually do our best, and wait for the best results, but the results do not always bring good news to us.
We could be stagnated and facing dark times. But the important thing is that we must not be frustrated and stopped by that, because our hearts will still be beating at anytime. Which means we have to face our situations and endure those times.
In a life, I think there are unavoidable roads which we cannot help passing through. If you face the inevitable issues, I would recommend you: “just pass, do not show your weakness and tears” because you will be stronger than ever if you just walk on your way.
