In martial arts mythology, we often hear the story of the dragon and the tiger.  The tiger represents a hard, linear and aggressive style, whereas the dragon embodies the circular, flexible and soft style of martial arts. When many people first start in Thai Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/BJJ or Filipino Jiu-Jitsu, it’s all tiger, all the time.  They ferociously pound away on the Thai pads or charge their opponent like a bull in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/BJJ. The tiger overshadows the dragon.  However, the dragon also represents learning and wisdom — if the tiger rules our actions and emotions, our aggressive tendencies literally stifle our ability to learn and grow as a martial artist.  The true martial artist strives to balance the tiger and the dragon — using aggression and power only when necessary to achieve a specific goal. So, the next time the tiger appears, calm down, slow down and think about unleashing the Dragon Within — your game will thank you for it!
