Connection between Sport and Character

“Those who know how to win are much more numerous than those who know how to make proper use of their victories.
Polybius (200-118 BC), History, and Bk X, 36.

The Great Culture of the Greeks and Romans took athletics, culture and its community seriously and advised its people on how to behave and act virtuously. To them, the people that you surround yourself with were as important as your own character. Through our study of this practice we can ourselves learn how to choose the company one keeps and how to choose the thoughts one expresses and presents.

The company that I keep have provided me with life’s greatest lesson and virtues, which is simply that it’s not only being victorious on the mat or the cage which matters most, but being victorious and giving ones best effort in life as true gladiators is the ultimate uncontested value we bring to life.

Being in the company of great inspirational men and women, inspires and gives light to the historical maxims to stand for, to express and finally to share with my family and community.
