Martial Arts and Kung Fu skills training has individual benefits unlike competitive team sports where mainly star players and winners get to shine. Some team members spend lots of days and time practicing and rarely get to play thus feeling sad and left out. You will "miss all the shots" you don't take! In the real world, being actively involved, engaged, and being part of the solution instead of part of the problem gets you ahead. Get up off the team bench, stop waiting to get into the game, and get into the action of The Tao of Kung Fu every day...
