Taekwondo fighter quotes ufc results - The 25+ best Taekwondo quotes ideas on Pinterest.



As we study this cycle’s tenant of Humility, I am reminded of a quote from a famous fighter who said: “If you are not humble in the fight game, you will BE humbled.”  That fighter was Mike Tyson.  Though his exploits in the ring are now stuff of legend, it was his inability to control his life outside the ring and an arrogance that went with it, that led to his eventual fall from grace in Tokyo against Buster Douglas. 

Mike Tyson is a perfect case study lesson on how a martial artist should NOT act (though he has since mellowed out in his later years and has a more peaceful outlook on life and his actions).  A martial artist should be the epitome of humility.  There should never be a time when the artist appears arrogant or “better” than someone else.  Being a former Marine, this is VERY hard for me to do sometimes! 

Instead, the artist should be able to take a good look in the mirror and with an honest look, take pride in certain strengths but at the same time take note of the weaknesses.  The artist should thank the competition whether it’s a win or a loss, for without them, the artist would not be able to improve. 

When you are not humble, you have the tendency to become angry very quickly when things don’t go your way.  This leads to a tightening of the fists, which leads to a tightening of the shoulders, which leads to inaccurate target selection and horrible punches, kicks, blocks, and head movement.  This is why we spar so often in our organization.  The more you do it, the more relaxed you will become.  Also, the more you do it, the better you will be at noting your strengths and weaknesses and thus, you will be better able to learn from them.  At NO TIME should the artist EVER spar while angry or upset.

For three years, I have always performed very well in my age and belt category.  With the exception of one individual from the Olathe Kansas Tiger Rock, there hasn’t been anyone I have seen that I couldn’t beat at tournament.  I ALWAYS came home with at least two medals from the tournaments.

Then, at the 2013 World Championship, I decided I didn’t need to train this time around.  Being a new school owner, I put all of my time into training my students who were attending.  I did NOTHING for myself two cycles before the event.

Juri Han (한주리) is a video game character in the Street Fighter series. She made her first appearance in 2010's Super Street Fighter IV . In the series, she is a South Korean taekwondo fighter employed by S.I.N. and an underling to the main antagonist of Street Fighter IV , Seth .

Juri originated as a suggestion to introduce a female Korean character in the Street Fighter series and the development team went through 400–500 ideas before they decided on Juri. She is the first practitioner of taekwondo and the first Korean character in the series. Juri has been described as "sultry", "provocative" and "sex-crazed", and she is unique within the series due to her practice of taekwondo.

During the development of the game, several developers became fans of hers', with writer Kawasaki describing their fandom as being "I'm gonna use this character! She's so cool!" rather than them liking her just because they made the game. [1] In response to fan complaints that Juri seemed too similar to previous character Chun-Li , Capcom responded by stating the two were nothing alike, and added that it would be like comparing two other male characters to one another simply because they utilized punches. [6]

Juri appears as a playable character in the crossover fighting game Street Fighter X Tekken with her official tag partner, M. Bison . Juri also appears in the crossover tactical role-playing game Project X Zone , its sequel Project X Zone 2 and in the mobile puzzle game Street Fighter: Puzzle Spirits . [12]

Juri appears as a playable character in Street Fighter V ; she was released via downloadable content in July 2016. [13] She appears as part of the game's story mode, "A Shadow Falls", working with Helen's team to stop the Black Moons and foil Shadaloo's plans.

A resin statue of Juri was created by SOTA Toys and made available for the release of Super Street Fighter IV . [22]
