Practising martial arts is not just about training the body to complete the different positions and forms, it is also about the mental and spiritual side of discipline.
Martial arts take many forms- from Hapkido and Judo to Jiu Jitsu and wrestling- when you actively and routinely participate in these forms, they train more than just your body.
Throughout history, martial arts has been linked to various religious and spiritual figures. Many forms are considered to have been created, practiced, and disseminated by monks and nuns throughout Asia. Because of this spiritual influence, mental strength is considered just as important as physical strength. The art of meditation can be included in the training, as a means to discipline the mind as well as the body.
The concept of energy flow, specifically through the body and mind and out into the world, factors into martial arts training. Breathing techniques are included within the classes as a means to elevate the mind and body together. This spiritual side of the combat form can be utilized in your everyday life as well. Harnessing these methods could help you with relaxation, calmness, self-consciousness and mental focus- all reliable and valuable qualities needed in the world outside of our facility.
At MAFA our trainers and members alike teach, learn, sweat, and grow together every day.
