Why Study Martial Arts?
The reason I study Martial Arts is not only for the major physical benefits, but the mental aspects as well. Martial Arts is a very good way to achieve balance within the mind. You may learn self-defense, but you also learn many life skills and a lot about yourself. My instructors have helped me in all aspects of my life so well, that I am an instructor myself. I have learned much about the kind of person I am, and have gained much better control of my life in doing so. I've been doing it for over a decade now, and haven't regretted one day. You gain friendships with the instructors, your classmates, and even some of the parents of your classmates. A good Martial Arts dojo is a friendly environment, where everyone gets along and learns something. We can apply these principles to everyday life, too. Shouldn't any place be like this? Martial Arts can apply to everywhere in the world, not just the dojo.
