Hey guys, I was just curious as to what has been your single biggest insight that martial arts has brought you through all your years of training. One interesting observation I read in another thread was that it takes getting to black belt level to realize that belts actually don't really matter. For me, it's the importance of philosophy in relation to martial arts. I started out practicing martial arts because I thought it looked cool, as I'm sure many others have. Along the way, I found a lot of value in the theoretical side of my art - how and when to use it, and how to behave in daily life. And then building a community evolving around such values. Thanks for your replies!
