Just A Thought

Certainly people quit martial training for many reasons; lack of money; getting too busy with work-related things; family issues; or even maybe they felt they learned or experienced what they wanted and that was good enough. But I was talking with somebody at a party recently who mentioned having studied martial arts for a while. Sounded like he quit, as I believe many other may have, because at some point he intuited that was he was doing was just rote technique and not something that felt real somehow even if he was not clear what "real" would be. I think that's a more common thing than is acknowledged.
