Spirit, Mind, Body
“To possess the prepared spirit, mind, and body and to harmonize these three attributes in times of extreme stress to the point of being able to adapt and improvise to do whatever is necessary first requires one to focus–to achieve the offensive mindset–which allows one to act in place of reacting.
This calmness in a storm of adversity is attained only by first possessing a clear sense of self-worth and purpose–that which gives the warrior his vision and leaves all others blind except to their own personal demons and worst fears.
One secret as to how the warrior will not only attain but maintain a sense of self-worth and purpose–the warrior’s unique vision–is that one must lead by example to free the mind. This is why the FASST/Dux Ryu trainee cannot be complacent only to do but must desire to share all the skills of warriorship.”
