WEAKNESS = STRENGTH

"Here is a long story. The morale of the story is that if you

can master ONE skill, it may be all you need to make it.


The story is told of one 10-year-old boy who decided to

study judo despite the fact that he had lost his left arm in a

devastating car accident.


The boy began lessons with an old Japanese judo master.

The boy was doing well, so he couldn't understand why,

after three months of training the master had taught him

only one move.


"Sensei," the boy finally said, "Shouldn't I be learning more

moves?"



"This is the only move you know, but this is the only move

you'll ever need to know," the sensei replied.



Not quite understanding, but believing in his teacher, the

boy kept training.


Several months later, the sensei took the boy to his first

tournament. Surprising himself, the boy easily won his first

two matches. The third match proved to be more difficult,

but after some time, his opponent became impatient and

charged; the boy deftly used his one move to win the match.

Still amazed by his success, the boy was now in the finals.


This time, his opponent was bigger, stronger, and more

experienced. For a while, the boy appeared to be

overmatched. Concerned that the boy might get hurt, the

referee called a time-out. He was about to stop the match

when the sensei intervened.

 

"No," the sensei insisted, "Let him continue."

Soon after the match resumed, his opponent made a critical

mistake: he dropped his guard. Instantly, the boy used his

move to pin him. The boy had won the match and the

tournament. He was the champion.

 

On the way home, the boy and sensei reviewed every move

in each and every match. Then the boy summoned the

courage to ask what was really on his mind.



"Sensei, how did I win the tournament with only one move?"

"You won for two reasons," the sensei answered. "First, 



you've almost mastered one of the most difficult throws in 



all  of judo. And second, the only known defence for that 



move is for your opponent to grab your left arm."

 

The boy's biggest weakness had become his biggest

strength."
