It's quite amazing what the human body is capable of. We see amazing feats of athleticism everywhere from bare knuckle Kyokushin Karate tournaments to MMA cage fights and of course, the UFC. Men pushing themselves to the limit and beyond. It's certainly not for the weak but the problem is, warriorship is not just about bare knuckle tournaments or cage fighting. In fact, it goes much deeper than that.
Let me explain.
There's nothing worse than seeing an amazing athlete who can't string a sentence together. It's even worse when you see their writing and grammar not much better than a 5 year old. I get it, we're not all born with a silver spoon in our mouths like some upstart from a "royal" family somewhere, but that is still no excuse to have the communication skills of a wet mop. Every masculine man should be doing the difficult work of learning to read and write properly. In fact, that's what separates the men from the boys. Someone who can be bothered with spelling and grammar.
Sure, no one is perfect and we can all improve, especially me but the point I am making is this. A true warrior is not only proficient in the art of self defence, fighting and being physically strong, it's also about how well you can communicate, spelling, grammar, learning how to structure a letter. These things may seem insignificant but let me tell you from life experience, it can mean the difference between someone taking you seriously and someone thinking you're just a knucklehead with no idea. It's all about making a great first impression, especially when you're trying to reach out to someone who ma be able to help you or mentor you in your field. Being able to know the difference between your and you're is what professionals do and if you want to be taken seriously, I suggest you do too.
There is no excuse for it. I was lucky enough to have a mother who cared about grammar and spelling, it was drilled into me from a very you age and it's something I am complimented on quite regularly. These days there are programmes around like Grammarly to help you with that. I have provided the link here. The more you use it, the more educated on the subject you become.
Remember men, it's not just about being a tough guy. It's about being educated enough to know the difference between you're and your. It's up to you to make the effort to be taken seriously because no one cares. It's on you to educate yourself through trial and error and being the best example of what a warrior should be is your responsibility, no one else's.
