A martial arts class is not about gratification. This is a very important thing to recognise.
We are not in the service industry.
Martial arts schools have existed for centuries. They have only one purpose: to teach you combat skills.
Everything else is secondary.
If you are hoping to express your emotions or parade your ego, a martial arts class is the wrong place to do it.
Traditionally, the training would have been very gruelling and perhaps even cruel.
Yet, it all served the one purpose.
