ok weird question, just curious as to peoples motivation towards achieving a black belt in Kuk Sool Won. This isn't a KSW is rubbish thread, i just wondered why people are following the path. Examples of what i mean are, some people need to gain confidence, so was it a lack of confidence that drew you to wanting to achieve it. Some people were not that athletically gifted at school and want to prove that they can do something physical to themselves. Some people are bullied come looking for self protection. etc etc Ok think i've got across what i'm trying to ask. Afterall everyones belt means something different to them. Some it will be a measure of skill, some measure of time and effort, and some a measure of internal discipline. Yes i realise you could argue all of these are achieved i just wondered which is the primary one people were striving for. Besides we needed a new thread.
