One of My Favorite Speeches – By Theodore Roosevelt

“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.” -Theodore Roosevelt

Thanks to all the parents who came out and tried class this last month. I think the children whose parents train (or trained) always do better in class because the parents have a greater understanding of what’s happening on the mats. I really encourage all the parents who have not tried class to do so.

I believe in this so much that I am going to continue offering a free uniform to any parent to come and train for a month.

See you in class
Master Bartley
