When they are faced with a choice to compete for the top spot, champions without hesitation will opt to go for the gold. Those who have never been in that position sometimes wonder if they belong there. However, this doubt in themselves and in their ability is an added invisible opponent. You don’t need to fight more than one opponent a time. The outcome will be more positive if you resign yourself to doing your best.

Believe in and be Proud of your USJF
