The goal is to live an authentic life by going within to unlock paradise vs going outside. The UrbMonk mindset reminds us that we can be committed to balance without needing to remove ourselves from the world we live in. It is not always a fast or direct path, but it is a path that asks us to acknowledge set-backs and still put our best foot forward.
The Hip Hop Martial Arts movement can be flashy, deadly, or both. But the goal in becoming an UrbMonk is to maintain balance no matter the opposition. "When your tempers rise, lower your hands. When your hands rise, lower your temper." Through a militant mindset of strength, balance and humility, we gain the conviction to push past our limits.
"Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
