Mental Benefit – SELF-DISCIPLINE

Stress is something that affects all of us today. Whether that stress is coming from school, work our family members or relationships, many struggle with maintaining healthy stress levels these days. In martial arts, you are taught to be still for long periods of time. This gives your brain time to relax, analyze the situation and respond appropriately. Also, focusing your energy and effort into your training will help your mind to avoid dwelling on negative experiences or stressing and 'over-thinking' situations that you have no real control over.
