In his (1979) book titled "Zen In The Martial Arts" Joe Hyams wrote,
"A dojo (practice hall) is a miniature cosmos where we make contact with ourselves - our fears, anxieties, reactions, and habits. It is an arena of confined conflict where we confront an opponent who is not an opponent but rather a partner engaged in helping us understand ourselves more fully."
Our gym is a practice hall; a place where we can safely test ourselves, prepare ourselves for the unknown and the unknowable in the world. Sometimes we fail, but we come back for another battle.... and these battles which are very often not physical in nature allow us to be stronger, to be more confident, to grow.
