How Martial Arts Help One Overcome Obstacles
The most important thing I think that we learn from martial arts is the ability to overcome obstacles. When training, you sometimes get tired or hurt. These can cause doubt and many think about stopping the things that make them uncomfortable. But pushing yourself behind what you think are limitations are the key to teaching that you can always do a little more. By challengining myself through competition, I learned to deal with not only the pain and fatigue, but to handle pressure, pain and discomfort. Through training you better learn what you are made of. You learn weather you will fold under pressure or drive on. Embrace the lessons that you get from your experience in the martial arts.
