65 seconds Łukasz Łuczyński
My passion is - martial arts and in particular Oyama Karate, after having trained it for 16 years as well as the training of youth in the field of karate, self-defense and kickboxing.
The biggest fight of my life is constantly striving for excellence by combating flaws and weaknesses.
I am inspired by the success of other athletes.
When I am down I go to training. This allows me to release bad emotions. After a workout, I feel better and I think that tomorrow will be a new and better day.
I fear life without the closest persons I love.
Winning is the best feeling in the world which motivates me to harder workouts.
To the people fighting CF I say:
Hey Tigers- so I call my students that I train twice a week! For each course, we overcome weaknesses: lack of fitness, flexibility, speed, and the greatest enemy which is laziness. Only the most persistent are successful in competitions.
I know the taste of victory. These people are the ones who train every day in spite of the weather and how they feel.Therefore, for me, each of you is a winner, because you are constantly fighting with this biggest enemy - Cystic Fibrosis!
Dear friends, I want to tell you my secret for winning the battles: before every competition, I determine in my mind that the purpose is WINNING! It is because without it, even I do not want to go to the mat. The thought of winning inspires me every day from morning to night, and in small steps I get there myself before a long and painful Karate workout. I am sending you a quote from a master whose words inspire me further:
„Studying karate is like climbing a high mountain. Life also reminds of climbing. It is important to constantly try to get to the top. Once you reach it, you can see and understand a lot. Standing at the foot of the mountain, you can only admire its peak.”
Never give up!
Greetings Łukasz Łuczyński
