Assuming Martial Arts Are Only For Pugilism?
Mistake #1 – Working out for greater physical strength and believing that is all you will need to defend yourself in a fight is a mistake
What To Do Instead – Find a place or people to work out with where you get that physical strength that can be applied to self defense as well as personal growth for the human endeavor. Improve your mind and spirit, not just your physical body.
Mistake #2 – Learning and practicing a bunch of “so called” combat techniques without acquiring the strength and practice time that is necessary to apply them for real. “It has been said that in a real fight you only use a small percentage of the techniques that you practice.” That’s why one must continually practice throughout their life.
What To Do Instead – Practice what you learn and keep it practical. Develop your physical strength in accordance with what you are practicing. Don’t be afraid to put on the gear and get on the mat. Don’t hold back. “You can’t learn to swim on dry land.”
Mistake #3 – Learning how to hurt someone without adopting a moral philosophy toward your fellow human beings is like driving without knowing the rules of the road.
What To Do Instead – Find an environment where the proper etiquette is taught for handling violent as well as non violent situations. It is easy to hurt someone. It is not so easy not to hurt someone who is trying to hurt you. There is definitely a right and a wrong way to handle an aggressive incident.
Remember, the best fight is the one where both or all parties can walk away and still save face.
