You’ve probably watched movies and TV series that show the hero, single-handedly demolishing six bad guys without even raising a sweat or getting out of breath… let’s get real.
Martial art training is great, ask anyone that’s ever achieved Black Belt and they’ll tell you that there’s nothing better, but like everything worthwhile in life, you have to give to get back, in other words you have to work at it; however, the work doesn’t feel like work because it’s enjoyable and done in the company of other like-minded people, who also enjoying training.
Training is training and no matter what you are training for, the result you get out depends on the effort you put in.The results you get however can be a hundred times the effort required.
So! what are the results and benefits?
A good training session makes you feel fantastic, you feel tired but elated, and pleased with yourself and your accomplishments.
You have learned that you need to sharpen some of your techniques and found what you excel at. You learned about new techniques and how to use them effectively, plus learned how to use techniques you know in a different way to get the better of your training partner.
You will either be pleased with your current fitness levels or decide to get fitter, stronger and faster and there is always your instructor to turn to for advice on how best to do that…
What’s not to like with all that?
