It is essential to use martial arts discipline if you really want to take your self defence classes seriously and progress to your highest possible goals. This means you need to train your mind to do what is right and leave what is wrong regardless of how difficult this can be. Unfortunately if you take Self Defence Classes then you need to be much stricter with some other parts of your life outside the class. Here are some of the things I use my Martial Arts Discipline for to help me feel better about myself.
How To Develop Martial Arts Discipline
Martial Arts discipline as a rule will come naturally as you participate in more classes. The instructor who teaches the self defence classes will expect you to do everything he says and out of respect you will do this or be suspended from class. So you must line up when he asks and be quiet, then you will bow to him and your class colleagues out of respect. From here on your only focus should be on your instructor and your training, you should clear everything else from your mind no matter how bad things might be in your personal life…this is a time to forget about that stuff. At first you will need to be reminded a few times about these rules but it shouldn’t take long before you are following your own initiative to respect them. This is the beginning of developing your martial arts discipline and a strong mind.
Martial Arts Discipline And Training
So you come home from work after a hard day and you’d much prefer to sit down in front of the TV rather than attend your self defence classes right? I know exactly that feeling and many of the top Martial Artists do too. But this is when you need to focus on what you have to do…use that martial arts discipline to just get up and do it without making excuses as to why you shouldn’t do it. We all know that getting motivated is the hardest part, but once you are up and doing it then it’s easy and generally enjoyable. I’m no different here, the thought of chilling seems so appealing but when I get into that frame of mind I just remind myself of the negatives to this laziness…stiff joints, weak muscular structure, at least 1lb of weight increase per week, this is no good for a self defense enthusiast. Many times I would have fell into this state but I use the motivation from my martial arts discipline to get me up and it keeps my joints healthy, muscles strong and I have progressive weight loss if needed. Just keep challenging yourself and before you know it you will develop a very strong mind, martial arts discipline will benefit you in your everyday life not just in training.
