Fighting Maxims

maxim [mak-sim]
1. an expression of a general truth or principle.
2. a principle or rule of conduct.

I wanted to compile a list of the maxims I have learnt over the years. Simple expressions that hold a lot of truth.

  • Position before submission.
  • Train hard, fight easy.
  • It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog.
  • Winners don’t quit, and quitters don’t win.
  • Hard work beats talent, when talent refuses to work hard.
  • When they pull, you push. When they push, you pull.
  • You can and will be tested,¬†evertime you get on the mats.
  • You don’t earn the belt, you become the belt.
  • Practice doesn’t make perfect, practice makes permanent. Perfect practice makes perfect.
