Warrior Athlete Defined

What is your definition of a Warrior Athlete?

Who would you say holds the qualities that you described above?


  1. Warrior Athlete "Kokoro":
    An individual that; sees change as opportunity, does not accept defeat, always tries to win instead of trying not to lose, never takes "no" for an answer, knows that the only limits are the ones we place upon ourselves, will stop at nothing to get the job done, is honest about their performance/effort but never negative.

    Who holds/held these qualities:
    Steve Prefontaine
    Michael Phelps
    Lance Armstrong
    Every member of the US Special Forces
    All (well most) Professional and Olympic Athletes

  2. Thanks Denny - that is AWESOME!

  3. Great explanation Denny!

    My definition:

    Someone who is willing to go above and beyond what is required of them even when no one is looking. A person who is willing to confront their challenges head on and never back down. He/she is always willing to mentor those who need guidance when they have lost their way. Trains not only the body but the mind as well.

    The BBCF Warrior Athlete crew.
    Bruce Lee
    Muhammad Ali
    Denny's picks were awesome I will have to second those.

  4. Between Chandler and Denny I cant think of other ways to say what Warrior Athlete is.
