Ethan boy did a couple rounds of sparring with a bigger and more skilled boy today. 

He got his ass kicked, and he was really  bummed and borderline crying.

I'm stoked he didn't give up, as I'm sure a big part of him wanted too.  

Nothing great comes easy, and I want him to feel the fight in his spirit.

There will always be somebody better , stronger , faster , more skilled, more talented, no matter what your sport or profession.  I want Ethan to learn how to process that mentally and overcome it.
