Why Tiger Rock Martial Arts? Part I

April 14, 2016

I can & I WillWhy Tiger Rock Martial Arts? I’ve been asked this question many times over the past 12 years. There are many reasons to pursue Martial Arts training. The most obvious reason someone would choose to try martial arts is to learn to defend themselves and keep their family safe. Through Martial Arts training a student becomes proficient and effective in combating physical assaults of many types but, most importantly, students learn that there are many ways to avoid escalating a conflict to the point of physical contact. By being aware of our surroundings and avoiding many common pitfalls, Martial Artists become adept at assessing potentially dangerous situations and avoiding them. It is said that one trains in Martial Arts to become so proficient that they never need to use it. Of course, I am paraphrasing but the sentiment is the same. Through continuous training in the Martial Arts students develop a much greater sense of confidence. As students exude strong signs of confidence they no longer give off the ‘victim vibe’ and therefore, are less likely to be confronted by those who would do them or their family harm. Although this is the most common reason student begin their journey in Martial Arts it is by no means the only reason. We will continue to explore these reasons in future posts.
