We believe that discipline is key for developing strength & confidence. A disciplined mind is a strong one that can endure and overcome challenging situations. Martial Arts training allows you to be challenged in a safe and controlled environment that makes difficult circumstances easier to deal with. When you are constantly put in uncomfortable situations over and over again, it starts become more comfortable. Here are 5 reasons why Martial Arts is essential for your success and how you can use the benefits of the training in your everyday life.
#1 MARTIAL ARTS GIVES YOU “BULLET PROOF ” CONFIDENCE
It’s no secret that martial artists are some of the most confident people on the planet. The physical training that is required demands a level of discipline and strength that can only be derived from being pushed to the limit over and over again. This type of mental and physical conditioning creates a level of confidence that is forged through countless hours of training. When you have done something so many times that it becomes second nature, your confidence in that skill set becomes unbreakable. Preparation and planning are a daily ritual for martial artists and in turn makes them confident to take on any obstacle that might stand in their way. If you are lacking confidence in yourself or your abilities, martial arts can make a profound difference.
#2 CARDIO FOR DAYS
Martial Arts will get you in to the best shape of your life! Don’t believe us? Try wrestling with someone or punching a heavy bag at full speed for 1 minute and see if your heart rate stays under 120 beat per minute. In Mixed Martial Arts competition, the bouts are 3 five minute rounds. Training for 3 five minute rounds will get you looking lean and mean in no time. The best part is that it’s total body conditioning! We apologize in advance for the sore muscles and lack of oxygen. Don’t worry, it get’s easier…we promise.
#3 MENTAL TOUGHNESS THAT WOULD CRUSH A JEDI
The biggest benefit to martial arts training has to be the mental toughness element. We all have seen the Hollywood style training of people brick breaking, board smashing & tree kicking but the reality is that the mental toughness gained in martial arts is easily applied in all aspects of daily life. Martial artists typically handle stress and pressure much better than most because of this discipline and self control. Simple skills like regulating breathing make incredibly stressful or traumatic situations easier for us. Obi-wan has got nothing on the mental toughness of a martial artist.
#4 TRAINING PARTNERS THAT BECOME FAMILY
The environment at martial arts gyms and dojo’s are safe, fun and friendly. There are no ego’s, no attitudes and despite what you might see on TV, your training partners are there to help you get better by pushing you to be the best you can be. The relationships that you will make in the martial arts gym will be unique. Your training partners see you at your worst and at your best.
#5 THE ABILITY TO DEFEND YOURSELF & OTHERS
Martial arts will give you one of the best gifts that you can imagine. The ability to help others in need. Once you gain the confidence and ability to defend yourself, you will be able to develop the skills to defend others. Whether that be defending them from bullies, domestic violence or simply stepping in to break up a fight between two strangers. Bottom line, martial arts will make YOU a better person and help change your life as well as helping others.
