Hello everyone and welcome to my blog. I hope you will find many interesting things here and that you will even decide to stay around for a while, since I have many things to share with you. First thing first, let me tell you a few things about myself. I am a martial arts instructor in his 40s who owns a Dojo and is teaching adults and kids how to fend for themselves and how to master some of the most challenging disciplines on the planet.
But I am not here to speak a lot about myself, but rather about martial arts which are what I love most and I found as the best way to help others, by teaching them how to fight. Did you know that in the US, only one adult in five meets the physical requirements for their wellbeing? We are having way too many problems with obesity, heart conditions and many other health issues that are plaguing the nation. All these can be fought if enough physical activity finds its way in everyone’s life.
That is why I teach martial arts, to begin with. I know that exercising can be pretty boring and that negative motivation to start jogging or doing sports does not work that well. I like to think that I am offering my students a good alternative to the well known boring ways to exercise. Martial arts are far from being boring. They are challenging, they are demanding of you and they offer you the highest reward in return: the possibility to be the master of your own body and the practitioner of a beautiful art.
What is also very important about martial arts in general is that they are a good way to improve your mental health. Discipline is very important and without it, you would never be able to excel. While your body does the heavy work, your mind commands it, and this is where martial arts are different from other sports. Don’t get me wrong, I think that any kind of physical activity is better than none at all, and I am glad when I see people taking care of themselves, but I strongly believe that martial arts offer you the outstanding reward of developing mental fortitude and a well trained body that is resistant to diseases of all kinds.
My Dojo is a great place for meeting new people. I am very content with how my students are making friends among themselves and how they learn together to be stronger, better and happier at the same time. I hope you will visit my blog to learn about what I do every day and how martial arts can play an important healthy role in anyone’s life.
