Trying to refind my humility

On the plus side, I have been actually getting to judo about 2x a week for the past month or so, and despite feeling rusty the first couple of time back, I am now refinding some of my groove. But as I find my groove and hit in Randori, I find myself becoming too cocky sometimes.

If I haven't learned anything about myself from judo is that I fair a lot better by respecting everyone and learning from those that beat me as well as from those that I defeat. If you are open-minded and humble you will be able to do that wholeheartedly, however, if you are haughty and arrogant you will close your mind to learning and that is beneficial to no one - especially not yourself.
