Practicing Martial Arts by applying knowledge from class to daily life is essential in learning and developing positive behavior and habits to become a good martial arts practitioner.
- Positive Attitude
Attitude sets up the mind and body to absorb and retain information. Before stepping on the mat, students mentally prepare by bowing in and expressing a “Try My Best” attitude with strong and alert body language and voice tone. Martial Artists train in structured drills that are designed to challenge and reinforce an internal “Yes I Can” Belief.
- Healthy Choices
The power of healthy choices allows martial artists to improve mentally, physical, emotionally, and socially. Knowing that good outcomes come to those who make healthy choices often requires effort and focus resulting in overall happiness. Act Positive, Feel Positive, Think Positive.
- Set Goals
Good martial artists set up short term and long-term goals to measure behaviors and habits. In order to better self 1% per day and ensure progress over time, students set and complete achievable goals. Individual growth is analyzed and calibrated to become more efficient and productive.
“Always take action to make good things happen.” First, you must move. Action to Think. Action to Action. Action to Feel. These are a few ways martial artists begin to change. When you act, you have courage to try. Action beats fear. When you freeze in mind or body, you cannot progress. Good Martial Artists have a desire to want to improve self by creating an action to move forward in life continuously advancing personal growth.
Good Martial Artists are consistent in their actions. They create a step-by-step system to improve. To get better at something, schedule it at a specific time of day and decide how long will you practice. Determine how many times per week and specific days you will work on the thing you chose to get better at. Set progress checks to analyze data, stay on track, research your topic and adjust your plan while continuing to practice.
