Martial Arts Training Relieves Stress
Martial Arts Training is one of the best activities for relieving stress and anxiety. I hear from students all the time that one of the biggest reasons they train is the stress relief. This is easy to understand when you think about it. Brazilian Jiu-jitsu classes require the students to be fully engaged both mentally and physically. Every day a student is working to sharpen his/her technique. Martial arts is not just about learning new moves but rather, perfecting the fundamentals of the art. Typically at the end of each class, students will spar. This is the most physically challenging part of class and requires the most focus. Executing techniques against a cooperative partner can be challenging enough. But against a resisting partner who is trying to make you tap out…you better be ready! That’s why students who are engaged in martial arts training are fully present and not distracted by outside problems. The Jiu-jitsu classroom is the perfect place to leave your stress behind
Martial Arts Training Puts You In The Best Mood
When many people first watch an MMA or Jiu-jitsu match, the are surprised by how aggressive it can appear from the outside looking in. They are even more shocked to see each opponent smile one another at the conclusion of the match. That’s because martial arts training brings to life something magical within every student. Even in today’s modern world we all have the inner desire to challenge ourselves. We want to be tested. We want to overcome difficulty…it makes us smile and it forces us to grow. When you are training Jiu-jitsu or Muay Thai with a teammate or competing against an opponent, you are living in the moment. And you are bringing your best self to life. Few activities demand this level of present awareness. I won’t get into the all the science and brain chemistry that is going on when you are doing Jiu-jitsu but I encourage you to google it. Simply put, it simply feels amazing! And puts the student in the best mood he/she can be in. If you have never experienced this before, I urge you to give it a try!
