Don't sacrifice just for the sake of keeping up with the pack.
In training, don't practice sloppy technique just to keep up with the count.
In the dojo, don't use a substandard stance when walking the floor just to keep up.
In life, don't sacrifice your integrity, your morals, just to keep in with a group.
Never give anything less than your best in training because in the end, you will fight like you train; and, more importantly, your primary competition is that face in the mirror.
