The Self Discipline of Martial Arts

Martial Arts is not everyone’s cup of tea. And there are many different reasons why people get into martial arts. I have trained in Judo, Tae Kwon Do, and Shaolin Kempo. Our two sons at times trained with me, and one of the greatest benefits I witnessed was the degree of self discipline acquired by them, which has had a positive impact on their characters and attitudes.

Of considerable importance is the teacher who, when they have the right attitude can really make a significant difference in the learning children will achieve through their training – not only in terms of their increasing physical prowess, but particularly in their learning greater degrees of respect, humility, and gaining empowerment and self-discipline.
