Attitude


The word attitude has several meanings. It may express a feeling or opinion people have about your behavior; for example, “Look at the way he struts around the ring, he has an attitude problem.” Attitude may describe the position of the body; for example, “Her ready stance presents the attitude of a warrior princess.” When you have a strong feeling or opinion about something and it shows in your behavior, you are said to have an attitude; for example, “His attitude about sparring is that if you don’t win, you’re a  loser.”

Your attitude toward sparring can be either in the way you view yourself a fighter or in the way others view you as a fighter. Your attitude toward sparring and being a fighter may present itself as your being arrogant or confident, carefree or professional, inept or skilled, timid or fearless, etc. These topics discuss ways to shape your attitude.
