I understand this meaning of loyalty. I have understood this since I was a small child(now soon to be 63), and I really started to understand in a High School Fraternity. I understood it to the max as a US Marine Infantryman, and Army Infantryman, as a Police Officer in South Florida, and as a Federal Agent. I definitely understood it with my Sensei(s) in Karate, Judo, Japanese JuJitsu, my Arjan & Kru in Muay Thai Kick Boxing, my Rabbi in Krav Maga, my Guru in Jeet Kune Do, and my Grand Master In Relson Gracie JiuJitsu. I never was a mat or gym jumper, or hopper. I have stayed for decades with the same teachers. Many times things did not go my way, or the way I thought it should go. I accepted it, and kept the train on the rails and stayed the course. I learned, and grew, and understood that I can’t be loyal by just doing what I want to do and what I think I should do, and jump to another place or another instructor, just because we see some things differently. This has taught me about working with people, and in different life situations. I understand what Loyalty is and I give it to my instructors for decades and decades to come.  Oss
