BENEFITS OF TRAINING IN MARTIAL ARTS

There are numerous benefits of training in martial arts. I remember the times when I used to get trained in Karate by my Honorable Sensei Johnson when I was around 16 years old. I was very deeply interested to learn martial arts.

During those times in Karate class, the training over there used to be relentless and highly disciplined.

At the initial stages of learning Karate, my level of focus wasn’t so good. I used to get distracted easily. But as time passed, the practice of Karate made me from being a disorganized guy to a disciplined and orgazined person. From being distracted easily to being laser-like focused and from being physically and mentally average to being strong like a rock physically and to being mentally unbreakable.

Karate increased my self confidence and self awareness as well.

So, here are the benefits proven by the practice of martial arts.

1. Self-discipline.

The key fundamental aspect of martial arts is being disciplined. Martial arts encourages you to organize your lifestyle in way that keeps you disciplined and motivated.

At the Karate Dojos, the masters mainly emphasize on self discipline and impart them into their disciples.

To be successful in any area of life, it is important to be disciplined. Without discipline there is no clarity and surety.

Practicing any martial arts would surely make you organize yourself mentally, physically and spiritually as well.

2. Efficient physical and mental health.

The practice of martial arts involves rigorous training procedures which results in having high stamina, great physical health and also mental clarity in the practitioners.

One of the greatest benefits I’ve reaped by the practice of Karate is staying focused and clear thinking. The practice of Karate requires focus and it increases cognitive functioning.

3. Increases self-confidence.

Well, exercises are always shown to have great benefits on the individual’s self confidence. The practice of any form of martial arts makes you involve physically, mentally and spiritually and thereby increases your levels of self confidence overall.

By the practice of Karate, I gained massive self confidence and conviction.

The practice of Karate literally changed me from being a average guy to a supremely confident individual.

One of the key factors for being self confident are the challenges we face. Without challenges there is no growth and without growth there is no confidence.

Martial arts is a challenge for you to break past your old habits and build the new habits.

4. Makes us aware about the traditional values of respect, Honor and integrity.

Well, if you consider martial arts which only focuses on competitive intent then it would not teach you values. Ofcourse you would gain the benefits I’ve mentioned above in this article, but if you truly want to practice martial arts at its purest form, then you better find Karate or Shaolin Kung-Fu.

For me, Karate practice was the key to develop as a person from inside out.

The practice of respect, Honor and integrity became my core beliefs.

So guys, those are the benefits anyone can have by the practice of any form of martial arts. By the way, if anyone is interested to learn martial arts then feel free to contact me. I will make seperate videos if anyone is interested in learning Karate.That’s all from me today. Thank you for being here. Take care. Namastey.

So how to cope up with anxiety and stress? There are medications at present which helps people to reduce their anxiety and stress for a while. Well that is not a permanent relief though.

The natural remedy to get rid of anxiety is breathing.

Breathing is Everything. Just comment down at the end of the post, “BREATHING IS EVERYTHING “, as it makes more effective impact on your subconscious mind.

From ancient time to the modern days, the Yogis, the self help gurus, the psychologists, all have made us aware of the fascinating benefits of breathing.

Breathing is used as a treatment for a person’s physiological and psychological healing. There’s no better remedy than breathing literally. It is the controlled by our Parasympathetic Nervous System(PNS). Even though breathing is autonomous and automatic in our daily lives, we can still have effective control over the way we breathe.

So here are the scientifically proven and tested ways to calm down your nervous system to reduce anxiety and stress.

#1 The Pranayama Technique(Nadi Shodana).

Yogis from ancient times and the Yogis at the present, they all recommend the practice of this particular breathing technique. Pranayama helps to calm down physically and mentally. It is believed that Pranayama supplies equal energy to both the left and right hemispheres of our brain which enables us to think more clearly.

So, How to practice it?

1. Sit comfortably with your spine erect.

2. Take slow deep breaths until you feel relaxed.

3. And then, close your right nostrill with your thumb and take a deep breath in through your left nostrill and exhale with the same. Alternate the nostrills. Do it for 10 mins and see the changes in your physical and mental states.

#2. The 4-7-8 breath technique.

This technique is pretty simple to do. Not only it helps to calm down but also increases the quality of sleep when you do it before you go to the bed.

So, how to practice it?

1. Inhale for 4 seconds deeply into your belly.

2. Hold your breath for 7 seconds.

3. Exhale fully for 8 seconds.

This breathing technique is safe and easy for most of the people out there. So do it yourself and see the benefits.

#3. Progressive muscle relaxation technique (PMR).

PMR is used by psychologists as well to induce a calm state of mind in their patients.

It’s very simple to do.

1. First of all, find a comforatble place to lay down.

2. Take few deep slow breaths until you feel relaxed.

7. Do this sequence for 10 reps and relax with deep breathing.

#4. Holotropic breathwork.

This is one of the breathing techniques which is not recommended to the people with Asthama, High Blood pressure and other physical conditions as the process involves intense breathing techniques.

Holotropic breathwork was used by the psychologists in the West in the late 70’s to treat the patients suffering from Anxiety, Depression and other mental disorders. The patients got permanent relief from the symptoms and were found to have normal cognitive functioning throughout their life.

Well, anyone without any medical condition can practice the Holotropic breathwork to tap into altered states of consciousness or to have spiritual experiences. But the only caution is to not do it alone. Find a friend who can help you out during the process.

So, How to practice this?

1. Take deep breaths down into your abdomen to relax.

2. After relaxation, take deep breaths with a normal pace and do not hold the breath. You have to immediately release the breath as soon as you exhale. At each exhale, take a deep breath in immediately.

3. Continue to breath this way for about 20 mins. Ask your friend to be there and wake you up at the end of the 20 minute session.

4. Stay there laying down and relax for a while. That’s it, you are done.

So guys, those were the breathing techniques by which you can absolutely get rid of the anxiety disorders and stress with regular practice.
