For many martial artists, fear is the ultimate challenge. Despite the years of training, they still have the fear of being defeated, of facing a stronger and faster opponent, of being challenged somehow and not being able to apply what is known and learned.
It is true that, if one cannot control the mind, he won’t control his body. But what kind of training does one require in order to fortify the mind?
