For many people the idea of going to the gym is terrifying. We’re unhappy with our bodies, we know our fitness levels aren’t what they should be, and we worry about what other people will think. We don’t want to be on machines or lifting weight next to super fit gym bunnies who make us feel worse than we already do and so we just don’t go.
We’ve all probably had daydreams of a child of being some sort of high-flying kung-fu master. No, taking martial arts classes isn’t going to make that reality. It can give you some real applicable knowledge on how to defend yourself, for sure. But the reality is that martial arts have a lot more to offer your personal development and even your state of mind than you might image.
