"Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishments"
Jim Rohn

Dutch was told that he needed to practice everyday in order to achieve his next belt. He set an alarm for 7pm every night and then went out to practice on his own every time the alarm went off. He kept it up until he got his belt and now at 9 years old already knows the secret to success. We are all very proud of this kid and the young man he is becoming. Dutch is a great example for the Kohai (lower ranks).
