Never appearing too perfect.

Are you appearing as being too perfect as a martial artist?

Perfection is a fallacy. People are imperfect. Even those that have trained for 80 years have weaknesses and thus are not perfect.

If it were possible to be perfect then we would have an undefeated champion of the world that would never loose no matter the challenger, no matter the circumstances and no matter their age or physical abilities were at the time.

The perception of others as perfect create cults and blind followers. Sheaple if you will. However if one looks long enough imperfections can be seen because they are inevitable. You can act as if you are perfect but reality always smacks you dead in the mouth every time.

I feel it is impossible to appear perfect. On the other hand one can act perfect and others can perceive them as such but again reality has a way of showing us the truth.

Now if we are talking confidence, then I'm guilty of maybe being too confident. But perfect? Not possible.

Seeing that I'm the furthest thing from being perfect, I've nothing to worry about appearing too perfect because I'm not even close whatsoever. Nor do I try to be in any shape, way, and/or form.
