Just because I do my job well, that doesn’t make me better than anyone else. I treat beginners and advanced students with the same respect, on and off the mats.

On the flip side, you must leave your ego at the door when you come to train. If you are a beginner, expect to tap out many, many times. This is an important part of learning.

The important thing is not that you lost, but rather, will you learn from it?
