You first must ask yourself why you’re training in the martial arts. A lot of people start martial arts training after being motivated by a sporting event or athlete, so it is their aim. Boxing is a kind of art, but not a whole one by itself it is only a sport and a way to exercise your abilities. In striking against itself, the principles of the sport that is actual ensure it is pristine as a self defense art. So you must ask yourself no matter if you are even a martial artist or an athlete first. You’ll see sports if you are a martial artist first.

It will not be necessary that you chase at tournaments after decorations or medals practicing in that manner in dojo or the school will be sufficient for you to improve your training. For all artists variations of any style have their advantages. It encourage daily exercise that permits you make better and to train more. Let’s face it, you all can’t go 100% all the time, so sport is a medium between going nuts and training that is unrealistic. The issue with sport martial arts is that people who do them feel like they’re a martial artist that is complete and street prepared’.

Even in a game like Mixed Martial Arts fighting, where it’s just as close as it gets to reality, it still isn’t true fighting. If you don’t balance your training, you’re apt to become delusional and not understand that you’re not as prepared as even a well rounded martial artist. An 80 year old woman with even a gun may easily take out the current Ultimate Fighting Champ if he does not have one, so even Reality Fighting is still even a game. In several cases, the rules can cause what was once a martial art to become longer of a game.

We may see this with Judo, where it started as even a collection of Jiu jitsu styles and Has Been very effective in many ranges of unarmed combat, addressing strikes, throws and groundwork. Now, it became known as mainly a throwing game and not taken as seriously as even a whole and well rounded self defense system. When too many rules are added onto a martial art in its practice, it’ll become more of a game and lose much of its value as even a martial art. A True Martial Artist is humble and with No ego, does into boast or brag and is usually unassuming. In an ideal and perfect world, even a true competitor must have many of those qualities, but the fact is that most don’t and it’s the nature of sports generally to be connected with only the opposite.
