A 10-year old boy decided to study Judo despite the fact that he had lost his left arm in a devastating car accident. The boy began taking lessons with an old Japanese Judo Master.  The boy was doing very well, so he could not understand why, after three months of training the Master had taught him only ONE MOVE.

The boy was a little perplexed what his Master was doing and said, ‘Sensei (Master), shouldn’t I be learning more moves?‘This is the only move you know, but this is the only move you will ever need to know,’ the Sensei replied.  Not quite understanding but believing in his teacher, the boy kept training.  Several months later, the Sensei took the boy to his first tournament.  Surprising himself, the boy easily won his first two matches.

    1. Yes, I thought that it was excellent. This article reminded me of when I was practicing Judo many years ago, I did not have the talent level to be winning anything but I had always had a superior strength level for my size and I was able to win many matches simply by power and force of will. I wanted to be very good at several different styles of Martial Arts but I simply was not a ‘natural’ at any of it. But in 1983 when I got hit by lightning while I was in the Army, that ended my ‘physical’ abilities/strength that I did have. Now all I do is to ride around in a power wheelchair each day, but I am blessed because at least I have been given these days, many aren’t so blessed.

      1. Oh my God. Hit by lighting. I had no idea.
        I like your attitude. Many would have given up a long time ago. Hang in there.
        Regarding the article and your comment, did you know that R. Federer was not a ‘natural’ at tennis. He was told to give up because of how bad he was. What do you think what got him where he is now?

      2. I am not a tennis fan but, I do know who Mr. Federer is as I have seen his name in tennis sports reports for years. I know that in his sport he is world class. Thank you for the information on Mr. Federer, I just became a fan of his. When a person wants something bad enough and the ‘powers that be’ are telling you that you can’t the ‘put down’s’ sometime increase a persons inner determination. Thank you very much for the kindness of reading their article and my comments, I appreciate you very much.—ted
        P.S.—I DO NOT RECOMMEND FOLKS TRYING TO GET HIT WITH LIGHTNING, THAT STUFF HURTS, A LOT!
