It is easy to see how studying and practicing the martial arts develops our physical skills – both empty-hand and with traditional tools such as the Long Staff (Bo) or the Samurai Sword (Katana).
Rigorous physical training also enhances our overall physical fitness – our strength, flexibility, and endurance. These are the strengths of our body.
Just as importantly, martial arts practice also develops our strengths of mind and will. Our strengths of body, mind and will are linked together and support each other.
Our personal discipline forms the foundation on which we build all these strengths. It is part of the fundamental structure of our lessons together.
The customs, traditions and formal etiquette of our martial arts training guide us in developing our personal discipline. Let’s look at some of the specifics of how this works:
As we train together in the dojo, we’re learning to link our intentions with our actions to achieve our goals. This is the essence of personal discipline.
This takes us time, effort and above all dedication to develop. Our personal discipline is fueled by our commitment to learn and grow as martial artists. Developing firm, abiding personal discipline is a central long-term focus of our training together.
