|"No matter how high a mountain is|
there will be a higher one"
It's great to see young wushu practitioners and enthusiasts come together to match away and exhibit their skills and abilities in the 3rd Junior World Wushu Championship. Even though it was junior level championship, high level of wushu performance was expected and it was indeed seen nonetheless. Great talents are coming up and it will only keep coming, the old replaced by the new, the old with the young.
As the old saying goes "there is always a taller mountain than the other".
To be the best you must keep training harder and harder, IMPROVE continually, instead of sticking to same old routines. If you keep doing the same thing for the past months or years, you will only advance so much...Look at mt Everest, being the highest mountain in the world it is continually getting taller gradually to keep it's no.1 spot. When you think about it, to be the "tallest mountain" why not add new set of routines, take up new exercises, replace the old and improve bits and parts of your training that intensify particular workouts and thus giving you better and faster result and most importantly you improve through gradual improvements in your training methods.
