Last One, Best One

In my dojo (martial arts academy), when the Sensei (instructors) say “last one”, the students reply “best one sir (or ma’am)”!

   This is a challenge and response tool that we use to remind students that the last round, last day, last challenge of anything is important.

Most people quit when they get tired; Blackbelts quit when they finish.

It’s an attitude and a Discipline that creates success by going that proverbial “extra mile”.

It is useful in sport, self defense, academics, work, relationship and in the pursuit of any and all worthy goals.

   “Last one, best one!”
