    Ok. I've heard it used in a way I thought meant to betray oneself (自分を裏切ります), but it could be that that usage has no relation to what Takayasu said.

    I think you are correct. は is the topic marker - training. The subject is implied - oneself. It could be read, "You can't cheat (yourself) in keiko.
  13. Gave that one it's own topic.
