Reasons To Invest In Martial Arts

There are many various reasons to want to learn martial arts. It can change your perspective from the first day you walk out onto the mat to the day you actually begin your martial art journey, which is when you receive your 1st degree black belt.

Now this may seem odd to you and wonder why I say the martial art journey starts after receiving the 1st degree black belt, but this is true. Everything you have learned and trained in up to this point is a prequel to what that journey will be after the 1st degree black belt. That period is what I call the “test.” Anything after the 1st degree black belt is “the journey.”

Only those martial artists who have the 1st degree black belt and above fully understand what I mean by this. The reason I say this is what I have been told and taught by both Tuhon Rick Ward and Grandmaster Bobby Lindamood. The reasons to further continue training after the 1st degree black belt and the perspectives change, and I anticipate what my perspectives will be when this happens. If you have wondered if martial arts is for you, consider this “test” before your actual “journey” begins.
