Physical, Psychological, And Spiritual Benefits of Martial Arts Classes

By: Frank Lucer

People have a number of different reasons which motivate them to enroll into martial arts classes. Some enroll in order to learn self-defense. Others do so in order to enjoy focused physical activity without the inconvenient scheduling and interaction associated with team sports. Still others find the classes psychologically and spiritually rewarding.

In this article, we’ll take a brief tour through the plethora of benefits offered by martial arts classes. As you’ll see, they expand far beyond the physical. Whether you’re thinking about enrolling yourself or your children, you may discover that learning the martial arts offers a wider range of advantages than you once imagined.

Physical Benefits

A generation of Hollywood movies has created the facade that karate, kung fu, and other disciplines are most useful for fighting. While the different styles can be used toward that end, there are far more compelling reasons to enroll in classes. First, because the training involves the use of your entire body, it provides a comprehensive workout. Your arms, legs, core muscles, and the rest of your body are conditioned through repeated use. The physical activity alone provides more exercise than many people receive from going to the gym.

Adults and kids can also take advantage of improved agility, coordination, balance, and strength. Most styles – both hard and soft – emphasize the use of your body as a single unit rather than a collection of muscles and limbs. As a result, students learn to focus and control their bodies while mastering their chosen te

Psychological Benefits

As many physical benefits as martial arts training offers students, there are also valuable psychological benefits. One of the most important is self-confidence. Students, both young and old, enjoy a significant boost in their personal poise and self-assurance. Despite what many people believe, this confidence does not manifest as a result of being capable of physically defending themselves. Rather, it springs from reduced anxiety, increased personal discipline, and an improved ability to negotiate potentially hostile situations.

It is no coincidence that martial arts students tend to be involved in fewer – not more – violent confrontations. Their training gives them a higher level of emotional maturity. As a result, they are less likely to confront others, preferring to steer clear of conflict.

Spiritual Benefits

The physical and psychological advantages of regularly attending martial arts classes are easier to identify than the spiritual benefits of the training. That said, students note that the training allows them to focus and concentrate on the connection between their mind and body. Because all martial arts require intense focus on physical and mental discipline, an inner peace invariably manifests. It is this peacefulness that occasionally leads to a spiritual awakening in some.

Finding The Right Style For You

The specific style or technique is important in the context of your personal philosophy. Some styles, such as karate and kung fu, emphasize striking and forceful attacks. Others, like judo and aikido, place a stronger focus on throwing moves and balance. All approaches provide the advantages described above (albeit, in different ways). The most important factor is finding a technique that is consistent with your philosophy and enrolling into a studio that can meet your personal goals.

For many people, the martial arts have opened the door to a number of benefits that were once either hidden or ignored. Dedicated students can expect not only to master their chosen technique, but to enjoy several advantages they’ll use for a lifetime.

(1-2) Entangled Water: Life, Consciousness, Memory

Water is the missing, often overlooked piece of the puzzle. Since water has consciousness and memory, everything we do and feel begins to make more sense. We are in fact moving bodies of water, able to connect psychically with other bodies of water. It is quantum entanglement at a much larger scale. This really truly is a new era of awakening where in the past few decades, some of the most important discoveries have ever been made in recorded history.

But take a step back and realize, a lot of these new scientific discoveries have in fact been around for a very long time and that is something to take a closer look at. The spiritual chanting of olm, almost mimicking the healing vibration of the sun, the holy water and the baptism, all take on a new meaning with these scientific discoveries. But have they always had this meaning? When you consider that we are water and some humans have had the willpower to ascend into self disciplined masters of themselves, it makes sense that they may have came to these findings intuitively many years ago and it is only now with science, can we discover the real truth behind it all.

J. Krishnamurti – Love And Freedom 1-8

J. Krishnamurti talks about Love and Freedom in a public talk held in Saanen on July 23rd 1981.

Jiddu Krishnamurti was born on 11 May 1895 in Madanapalle, a small town in south India. He and his brother were adopted in their youth by Dr Annie Besant, then president of the Theosophical Society. Dr Besant and others proclaimed that Krishnamurti was to be a world teacher whose coming the Theosophists had predicted. To prepare the world for this coming, a world-wide organization called the Order of the Star in the East was formed and the young Krishnamurti was made its head.

In 1929, however, Krishnamurti renounced the role that he was expected to play, dissolved the Order with its huge following, and returned all the money and property that had been donated for this work.

From then, for nearly sixty years until his death on 17 February 1986, he travelled throughout the world talking to large audiences and to individuals about the need for a radical change in mankind.
