An Indomitable Inner Strength and Mindset

As a modern human being, I can’t help but yearn for a lifestyle where I can frequently and periodically remove myself from the haste of life so that I can turn inward to explore the depths of my mind and metaphysical environment. 

Recently, I was fortunate enough to have trained with a Sensei, whose philosophy on training Martial Arts has provoked such an outcome.  We had not exchanged a single word about his training methods and what I am about to explain to you is through first-hand experience alone.

Purpose of Martial Arts

As a Martial Artist, I have had many years to understand Martial Arts.  I know how it has benefited me and what I use it for.  I have also been an avid observer of others who pursue Martial Arts and have witnessed the popularisation of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and how it is sometimes used to cast traditional Martial Arts into a negative light.  For me, it is a useless debate perpetuated by antagonists who have little or no experience of Martial Arts themselves. I would like to tell you how Martial Arts has changed my life.

Method for Martial Arts Practice

I have been preparing for some really tough Martial Arts tests recently.  I have been training extremely hard and wanted to share one of my training methods with you to become more proficient at a technique or combination or kata.  Whatever it may be.  It is not ground-breaking or mind blowing but it is definitely simple and effective.

Essentials for Martial Arts fitness

Martial Arts is extremely demanding on the mind and body.  Every training session pushes you to your mental and physical limits.  There are many techniques, exercises and moves that are extremely difficult to execute well.  A strong, fit and flexible body really helps with being able to effectively and effortlessly execute these techniques and exercises.  Preparing the body for the physical demands of Martial Arts will definitely help you maximise your Martial Arts potential.

How to Learn Martial Arts Online

We are living in a digital age.  The internet and social media have become a fundamental part of our lives.  We have started to break away from traditional methods of consuming and learning and now seek more convenient online options.  An example is how we are able to buy our groceries or clothing these days.  Previously we would commute to the store, select our items, pay in person and haul our items back to our homes.  Now, we no longer need to commute to our favourite stores.  With a few simple clicks we are able to add our items to a digital cart, checkout, pay online and have our goods delivered to our door.
