Mean Hakeem on Fighters
A lot of fighters are soft now a days when I first started fighting I Use to get my ass beat never complained cried or bitched about nothing just went home an thought how I could beat him the next time change it up till I ended up better than him I did that time an time again went an sought out sparring partners from different gyms till no one could beat me. People need to realize fighting is a tough sport if your soft don’t like the fact the you might get beat sometimes change sports (I’m talking fighters not just people who train for fun shape or self defense different story ) Fighting is not just physical but also mental toughness that I guess you just can’t teach a lot of people break under pressure but not me never have never will I’m to stubborn an will do what ever it takes to win that’s what makes a champion and a successful fighter!
