True Martial Spirit

Jiro Dreams of Sushi is an amazing martial arts movie.

Jiro Dreams of Sushi has exactly 00:00:00.00 of martial arts.

I will let you contemplate how those two sentences can both be true. Here's the preview:

For the martial artist, how many of these concepts sound familiar? Here is a man at the top of his field, seeking perfection in simplicity, yet feels he is not yet there. Through constant practice, he strives to achieve better results. There is no flash or pizazz. Yet, people make reservations months in advance and spend hundreds of dollars on a meal that may last 10 minutes.

Watch how he treats his apprentice chefs. Hard training, simple tasks repeated over and over again to earn trust and sound fundamentals in the basics.

I don't want to give much more away that this, for the surprise ending should inspire all instructors. If you have Netflix, it is on instant view. Go watch it.
