I came across this post today by a female martial artist and was amazed at how well she’d articulated the reasons why martial arts and, in particular MMA, can be such a rewarding sport. For both men and women.
There are no right or wrong reasons for getting in to martial arts. Maybe you do it just to get fit, perhaps it’s to fight or maybe one day to be the proud owner of a black belt. Whatever your motivation, I’ve learned first-hand that it’s a journey and a learning experience that can change you in so many ways: Confidence, fitness, ability, flexibility and mind-set, to name just a few. And despite what you might think, age and experience are not barriers.
So if you’re open to tranforming your body, skills and confidence in a way you could never imagine I highly recommend martial arts. Plus, there are so many different types out there there that there really is something to suit everyone.
Are you a martial artist or perhaps someone who’s thinking of taking it up? I’d love to hear your thoughts and experiences.
