How to Choose a Good Martial Arts School?
Martial arts is one of the best activities for fitness, self-discipline and self-defence. It’s a fun and healthy activity for all ages. If you’ve decided that you want to take up martial arts, don’t just automatically walk through the nearest karate school and immediately sign up. If you’re looking to choose a martial arts school to enroll to, a little researching on the Internet and garnering solicited advise from friends can save you a lot of time, trouble and money.
Decide what you want to get out of martial arts.
Choosing the right school to take up martial arts classes can be a bit of a task since you need to figure out exactly what you want to get out of your martial arts training. This isn’t something you can decide upfront. Spend some time off with your child or husband and evaluate what you are hoping to get out of a martial arts class and to make sure you find a school that meets your needs.
Training under the right instructor
Training under the right instructor is one of the main points to take into account when selecting a martial arts school. The instructor should have a great personality and attractive teaching style. You may not be able to find out about the instructor in just one or two meetings, so it’s advisable that you conduct a little personal research about the instructor’s capabilities.
MODERN TRAINING WITH TRADITIONAL VALUES
Everyone makes a decision to get into Martial Arts or Fitness classes based on their needs whether it’s to get fit and healthy, learn self defence, or regain their self-confidence once again. Joining is one thing, but to achieve your fitness or training goals you need two vital ingredients:
Motivation & Support
At Enso Martial Arts we address you both with our Values, our commitment to creating a positive community and our Instructors, Coaches and Staff and you will find a community of people who are invested into your martial arts journey from day one.
LEARN SOMETHING NEW AND SHARE SOMETHING NEW – EVERYDAY!
Being a martial artist isn’t just about learning new techniques and how they work, to truly understand something you must be able to share that understanding. This should be something you do in each and every day of your life.
HAVE AN OPEN-MIND, BE RESPECTFUL, AND SHOW COMPASSION.
Sometimes things don’t always make sense to you, or to those around you. Sometimes people make mistakes. Instead of dismissing an idea, laughing or even showing contempt – listen to what the person is trying to say, respect their opinion, don’t put down failure and rally in others’ success!
INSPIRE OTHERS THROUGH YOUR PASSION!
Find a way to inspire others, the most common way to inspire is to share your passion. Passion for knowledge, passion for understanding, passion for self development, passion in others!
FOCUS ON WHAT YOU CAN DO FIRST!
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.” ― Henry Ford. Time to start believing that you can, focus on what you can do first and ignore that which you cannot.
STRIVE TO GROW AND DEVELOP!
Martial Arts is a journey that takes a lifetime, take your time but most importantly continue to make every effort to move forward. Striving for growth and development is how we will all succeed.
DRAW ON INNER-STRENGTH, LEARN FROM AND OVERCOME YOUR FEARS.
We all have fears. Fears of the unknown, fears of what others think, fears that we will fail. Put them to one side and ask yourself, is this fear rational and how is a fear stopping me from achieving my goals. Then use that energy to overcome.
REMEMBER: FUN, SAFE THEN MARTIAL ARTS!
If it isn’t fun it’s boring. If it isn’t safe it’s dangerous. You can’t learn martial arts if it’s boring and dangerous – so stay safe and have fun!
BE THE BEST THAT YOU CAN BE!
Ever class you should tell yourself “I will try harder than I have ever tried before” – by doing this you can be the best version of yourself. You are more powerful and amazing than you realise, just put your mind to it!
