Breaking Through Emotional Barriers

Instructor Shärath Jason Wilson makes it his goal to help his students reach their full potential. In this video, he teaches his student the importance of never giving up:

The video starts with a student at trying to break a board during a test.

“In our comprehensive physical, mental and emotional stability training system Mūsar Rū, we place a strong emphasis on biblical warrior-hood; where each recruit focuses on sharpening each other, not surpassing each other in training,” Wilson said.

His instructor notices his frustration and encourages him to channel that frustration in breaking the board.

Having trouble breaking the board with his left punch, the student becomes emotional and begins to cry.
 Instead of scolding the student for crying, Wilson stops the class to talk through what he is feeling.
And through tears, his student explains that he’s having trouble punching the board with his left hand.

“We place strong emphasis on allowing our recruits to openly express their emotions,” he said.

Wilson reassures the boy that it is OK to cry, even if that is something that has been culturally frowned upon for black men to do.

“We can teach them how to use those emotions to their benefit,” he said.

And he teaches him that mental fortitude is vital, especially for black men.

“Men are humans and it’s okay to cry, but never give up when facing adversity. During these perverse times, it’s truly vital that we, the men and fathers of this generation, do not allow our boys to grow up with a false sense of masculinity like many of us did,” he said.

He reassures him that he can achieve anything as long as he puts his mind to it.

And after the honest discussion, the student gets back into his stance and breaks the board so effortlessly.
