Calmness is “peace of mind”, free from worry. But remaining calm can be really hard. There is no point doing martial arts training if you react (especially negatively) to stress around you. It defeats the purpose and does not help “Build A Better You!”

Relax and Breathe

If tension rises inside of you, take a few deep breaths and try to see the situation for what it really is. A “situation” is often not as bad as our immediate reaction suggests. Then, after you have paused, focus on something happy. Think positive thoughts. Put the biggest smile on your face, as it is hard to be negative while smiling. It will help….honestly.

Dojo Lessons

In class, we purposely put you through stress, so you can learn to react and relax correctly. You must learn calmness in the dojo, otherwise you cannot progress with your training…or even “build a better you”. And if you can be calm in the dojo, you can be calm in all areas of your life.

Calm Action

For this week, pause more often, take a few breaths, enjoy the present moment, focus on happy thoughts and enjoy life. If you want to know “martial arts classes near me” so you can practice calmness in the dojo, click on our following timetable link: . See you there!!!
