I'm not your friend.. I'm better!


That's right.. I'm not your friend.. I'm better than that!


This week I had a talk with my students. I mentioned to them there's a difference between friends and true friends.


A friend will tell you whatever you want to hear. Mostly they don't want to upset you, but they don't always have your best interests at heart.


A true friend, or your coach in this case tells you what you need to hear.


This week I mentioned to my students as I was a little harder on them about certain techniques: that because I'm hard on you, and you don't like what I tell you, it's because I'm not your friend. I'm your coach, your instructor, your teacher or any true friend.


I tell them what they need to hear because I want the best out of them, and I want the best for them. Much like their parents want for their children.


As I told them, you may not like what I say sometimes, but understand it's what you need to hear and they get better for it.


The Young ones agreed with me. They don't like it when someone criticizes them, but understand it's from a point of trying to improve them and make them great martial artists. Which will make them better people in life later.


Try to always pick out your friends and who's a true friend. Who tells you what you want to hear and who really tells you what you need to hear.
