Throughout the saga Dragon Ball et Dragon Ball Z, San Goku defeats almost all his opponents, and is considered the most powerful fighter in the universe, since he is the main character. But nevertheless, he has a weakness, which handicapped him on several occasions in the work of Akira Toriyama.
Master Roshi training
The power of a warrior is not only measured by the charge of Ki, and the power of destructive attacks. In episode 17 of Dragon Ball, Goku and Krillin follow the training of the master in martial arts Master Roshi, this in order to prepare them for the world championship of martial arts. If speed, strength and power are paramount, Master Roshi thinks martial arts cannot be properly assimilated if one does not train one’s mind. Thus, the old man makes his two disciples undergo a very special training, which includes the delivery of milk each morning, zigzag exercises between the trees, plowing a huge field with his bare hands, crossing a lake guarded by a shark and other exercises to test their minds for 8 months.
Goku, power at the expense of the mind?
Nevertheless, and on several occasions, Goku gets discouraged by his exercises that they deem uninteresting in learning martial arts. What does not fail to annoy Master Roshi, qui reminds him that knowledge is just as important.
It must be said that from an early age, Goku has always been impatient and airheaded. His obsession with becoming the strongest fighter in the world can also put him in compromising situations. A character that has penalized him several times within the saga created by Toryiama. In the first chapters of Dragon Ball Super for example, Goku nearly destroyed Earth when confronting Lord Beerus. The energy the two combatants channeled spread out into the cosmos in intense waves of destruction, but throughout the battle, Goku was just thrilled to be able to take on someone as strong as the God of Destruction.
Let us also mention his fight with Frieza on Namek in Dragon Ball Z. A battle in which the attacks of the two protagonists led to the destruction of the planet of Little Heart. This shows that Goku sometimes lacks judgment, and his stubbornness makes it a weakness.
While Goku is willing to go to extreme lengths to strengthen his body, he has made no effort to channel his mind. Moreover, he has no regard for education. For example, he is completely uninterested in the school results of his son Gohan.. Thus, one can consider that his training with Master Roshi is not successfuland can be considered a partial failure, since it ignored one of the most critical aspects of martial arts: the mental.
