Learn Smart Before Training Hard Part II
It may also be true that most people take up a Martial Art with the intention of learning how to fight however it’s our duty to see that, over time, they recognize the opportunity to learn far more valuable things. Such as personal development. Unlike many other physical activities, the Martial Art has much to offer in terms of both physical and mental development. Students learn how to make themselves stronger and more skillful as well as combat fear. Fear is the underlying cause of all violence and learning to conquer it is one of life’s most liberating and rewarding achievements. It goes further than just building confidence. It allows us to live our lives free from intimidation and humiliation. It is a truly life enriching goal and clearly one which is beyond the scope of your average gym or aerobics class.
