6 Signs That You Are Officially A Martial Artist

6 Signs That You Are Officially a Martial Artist


Losing Isn't The End Of The World Anymore

During your martial arts training you will train with people who are better than you, and you will end up losing. The lesson to take from this is learn what you did wrong, and get better. This process becomes habitual, and hopefully soon you will realise that it's okay to lose, as long as you learn why for next time. The only person you need to be better than is the person you were yesterday!

The Journey Is So Much Better Than The Destination

When you start training your goal is so simple - get a black belt. Somewhere along the way though you will realise that all a black belt really is, is a belt to hold your trousers up. A black belt is simply someone who keeps coming to training, and soon you will see that the classes, and what you learn in the classes is so much more important than just getting that black belt.

You Become A Better Learner

There are so many intricate details in Martial Arts that can take years to perfect. If you are able to figure out how to learn these skills, you can apply the same process to learning whatever else life throws at you!
Improving focus, self-awareness and discipline often helps students perceive details that others may have missed. That’s why advanced students can pick up new skills so quickly!

You Can Remain Calm In Tense Situations

We've all been there in training. Your partner's fist or leg connects with your face harder than intended. It'll annoy you at first, but eventually you will learn to judge the intention rather than the action, and quickly brush it off. This repeated process will make you realise that what people do is not always what they mean, and that you should judge people by their intentions rather than by their actions.
This simple lesson can help avoid conflicts outside of the dojo too.

Anything Worth Having Hurts To Achieve

All martial artists experience injuries on their path to Black Belt. It's part of training in a combat art, and as you approach black belt the physical intensity increases. But if it doesn't challenge you then it won't change you, and becoming a martial artist definitely changes you.
You'll soon realise that anything worth having requires a struggle – otherwise, everyone would already have it!

Learning To Ignore Yourself

First timers often come in to the dojo, do one class and decide this is too hard for them. However, this is the exact thought process that you should ignore. When you’re too tired to keep your guard up or too lazy to come into class after a tough day, learning to ignore that feeling and sticking to what you have been taught is the sign of an excellent Martial Artist.
