No Defeating Proper Training

Threatened while your back is pressed against the wall,

If we never prepare ourselves, there’ll be fear.

Incensed with emotions—check them and stand tall;

Your martial arts training will kick into gear.

You’ve been here before with the best of the best;

There’s no need to act tough or puff out your chest,

Ball up your fist and hit the point of the chin,

If it’s clean on the button, you’ll get the win.
