MARTIAL ARTS TEACHES, DISCIPLINE, RESPECT AND SELF CONTROL, AMONGST OTHER THINGS, WHICH ARE LIFE SKILLS THAT WILL STAY WITH A STUDENT FOREVER. At Tring Martial Arts, we are on a mission to spread the word about the beneficial effects martial arts training can have on many aspects of a person’s life. It teaches, discipline, respect, and self-control, amongst other things, which are life skills that will stay with a student forever. Dedication One of the first things that martial arts training instills in a person is a sense of dedication. Focussing both introspectively and outwardly, lessons are learned about respecting others and oneself. The discipline that comes from taking part in a regular martial arts class will help students learn to be more organised in their personal lives also. Budgeting Your Time Once the martial arts ‘bug’ has taken hold, a person will learn to structure their day and their lives around their training routine. Having nothing to focus on each week can lead to a more sedentary, less organised lifestyle, which decreases motivation and promotes disorganisation. Encouragement of Healthy Lifestyle As living a healthy lifestyle, involving a good, balanced diet and plenty of sleep are central to the teachings of martial arts, there is a lot of encouragement from the instructors to carry over what a student has learned in the class, to the time they spend outside of the dojo. People who take care of themselves in this way, tend to be much more organised than those without this kind of mentoring and structure present in their daily routines. Martial arts are a ‘way of life’ rather than just another hobby or pastime. Concentration Another benefit of becoming a martial arts student is the increased focus and self-control that it teaches. Being aware of yourself and your habits can only be of help to an individual when it comes to organisation and having increased concentration levels mean it will take more to shake you from this improved path you find yourself on.
