Here are 5 ways in which practising a martial art with an excellent instructor can completely change your life.
1: FIND YOUR INNER CONFIDENCE - Having confidence is not an age thing. I know plenty of adults who have no confidence in themselves whatsoever and I know plenty of young people that do. Confidence comes from believing in yourself and your decisions and having a strong unbreakable spirit. We get this through our physical training. All the things you can't do, you learn that through hard work and determination, that one day you can. All the grades, the competitions, the tests that your instructor may put you through, when you think I can't do it, you realise you can. You realise you are stronger than you thought possible and this is confidence. It's a game changer.
2: YOU TIME AND MENTAL HEALTH - Hardly anyone makes the time for themselves. Our lives are full of family life, work, school, problems, the list is endless. When do we actually get chance to find that time to clear our head and refocus our minds? If you practise martial arts you do this everytime you train. It makes you think of only one thing, it makes you concentrate and it totally resets your mind, so you are ready to get back into life with energy and spirit and confidence. Mediation plays a huge role in martial arts and it's important you practise every day, even if only for a few minutes.
3: REDUCE STRESS - Stress leads to many health problems and is a negative emotion to carry around. Training regularly is a great way to reduce stress and get it out of your system through physical exercise and breathing exercises. it leads to a healthier lifestyle and that can only be a good thing.
4: BECOME HEALTHIER - Of course if you practise martial arts you will become fitter, more flexible, have a stronger core, stronger back. Lots of health problems are actually helped drastically by practicing. People who suffer from asthma, depression, anxiety to name a few are all helped by training. The truth is martial arts helps every single person who is brave enough to start. Stop with the excuses and find a club and good instructor today.
5: POSITIVITY - Who doesn't want positivity in their life?! Martial arts teaches you to work hard, be positive in the face of adversity, to help and think of others and much much more. It enables you to stay positive even if you have massive problems in your life. It teaches us how to cope with life's ups and downs. This is a skill everyone should have.
