“You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret to success is found in your daily routine.”
ROLLING WITH THE FOX
Sometimes students want to “take the summer off”. The real question is what they will do with their time off – is it spent traveling & learning new cultures, visiting their family in other parts of the U.S. or the world, going to a outdoor summer camp, these activities will generally enrich their lives. However, most take this time off and spend it sitting on their couch playing video games, going out every night in bars down the shore etc.
While it is important for people to take time off to recharge their batteries, when you take the whole summer off (2 to 3 months = 1/6-1/4 of the whole year), you’re not just recharging your batteries but rather replacing a healthy habit (studying, schoolwork, exercise, Martial Arts practice) with bad habits. Most who take the summer off will have a hard time getting back into their good habits in September; if they even get them back at all. Martial arts is about muscle memory and habits. Studies show it takes anywhere from 18 days to 2 months to make or break a habit. Therefore ,how you choose to spend your summer can make or break your training habits.
What Fox has to say about taking the SUMMER OFF of training:
“As a long time martial arts practitioner & teacher, I strongly believe that while it’s quite good to take some time off, the time taken should at least partially be based on how long it will take to get back to the good habits.”
