Martial arts help you to be fresh, energetic and healthy from within during the summer.
  • Fitness is Not an Unreachable Goal: You might be incessantly on to frozen foods and high-calorie delicacies like ice-creams and desserts during summer, which makes it quite easy to put on weight. Ironically, now is when you really need that fit, toned body that you can easily expose to take in the sun. Your dilemma can be resolved only by martial arts, which is the easy and burden-free way to lose weight and be fit without starving yourselves.
  • Being Free is the Goal: Summer is the time when your mind could be at its best – relaxed, calm and free of worries. However, the stress and worry that creep into your mind prevent you from making the best of this amazing season.

Many of wish that we could learn to sustain our interest in the tasks that come in our way—whether it be learning something new, a workout program, studying for school, or making ourselves go to work every day. Lack of motivation sums up that inexplicable feeling of not wanting to do something, or not being able to sustain our interest in something that is expected of us. Not surprisingly, motivation has become a buzzword among behavioral psychologists, as they point to a larger trend where more and more people are unable to be motivated. This is true in the case of martial training as well. Martial art could be that magic program that gives you every benefit from health and fitness to stress-relief and self-defense, but what if we are tempted to give up rather than go on?

Being Motivated and Never Giving Up – Some Tips for Martial Arts Motivation
Taking up martial arts is easy—you are convinced of its benefits, you are eager to experience something new, you are waiting for miracles to happen. But once you start, it is natural to think of giving up, out of laziness, the fear of not being good enough, or lack of interest. Here are some tips to help you take control of your motivation:
  • Find a Target: It is important to have a goal to keep you going. Remember why you started martial arts in the first place—was it for health, fitness, stress-relief, confidence? Consult your instructor, and draw up an actable plan to achieve your goal in a given period of time.
  • Choose an Engaging Program: While it is the best to be motivated from within, an inspirational program can actually motivate you, making martial arts interesting and pacing it in the right way. At Bruce McCorry’s Academy (Peabody, MA), for instance you get a wide range of choices to pick your favorite from, and professional instructors find a custom method and pace that will keep you interested and focused on your goal.
  • Be Aware of Growth: In a good martial art school, the instructors will let you know your progress from time to time and sustain your motivation. You can do this on your own by logging your achievements. Check in from time to time how your health profile has changed, how many pounds you have lost, how calmer or confident you feel. Be aware of the growth that is happening to you.
  • Be Present-Oriented: In martial arts, anticipating future failures could make you lose interest. Instead, stay focused on your current progress and leave worrying about future.

Being Motivated in the Martial Arts Way
In fact, the four-fold program outlined above, where you find a goal of your own, engage yourself in a program, track the growth and focus on present can be the formula for finding motivation in anything that you do. However, the greatness of martial arts is that once you start practicing it, it will keep you energized, focused and spirited to the point that you will start feeling intrinsically motivated to do the other things that you are supposed to do such as studies or work. Martial arts is that miracle program that can help you find motivation with all aspects of your life. Say yes to martial arts, and find that extra push that you need to get yourself going!

How to Use Karate to Help Children Overcome Stress, Anxiety & Fear

Even though some adults passed through childhood with less stress and worry, a vast majority of them assume that today's childhood is devoid of worries or problems. Nothing could be farther from the truth; the current generation of children are facing a wide range of stress, fear and anxiety factors. These pressures have been accelerated by today's pandemic and lifestyle changes and the ever increasing dangers that pop up on a daily basis. As parents, guardians or generally just adults, the key question is how to help kids cope with such complex problems. The answer is Karate. It's a great solution to help solve the problem of the ever present stress, anxiety and fear in our children.
The Four leading Causes of Anxiety and Fear in Kids
Irrespective of the cultural, economic or racial divide, there are several key factors that studies have shown that are leading causes of anxiety and fear in kids. These factors include the following;
Fear of criticism from the society: it does rank at the top of almost every kids list. Most kids define criticism as the fear of either being reprimanded by teachers, parents, siblings or even schoolmates and friends. Most kids end up having low self-esteem and are continuously apprehensive about future criticism.
Workload from school: examinations have become the alpha and the omega for school going kids, the school curriculum has grown in leaps and bounds. There are more subjects, projects, assignments and exams being offered. Parents, teachers and the society in general have become more demanding in terms of results and expectations; this translates into more anxiety for kids.
Peer pressure from friends: almost every kid wants to fit into a certain grouping. This desire may force kids to participate in certain activities that their parents or the kids themselves may not approve of. This leads to bouts of anxiety and apprehension as they fear either being caught or are acutely aware of the consequences of their behavior.
Escalated dangers: more than ever, kids are now faced with numerous dangers than what meets the eye. There are more instances of bullying, sexual assault and physical harm from both strangers and people known to them. Most kids are more apprehensive about venturing outside and interacting with strangers or sadly, even close family members.
How Karate reduces Stress and Anxiety
All over the world, people have come to realize the role of martial arts in keeping its practitioners stress free. Karate ranks quite high in this regard, especially for kids. It does this through several ways;
Karate boosts the self-confidence of kids as they feel more assured about themselves because they can defend themselves against bullies and other physical assault instances. Kids who learn karate tend to face challenges calmly. They have a lot of self belief.
Karate is also known to help reduce stress. Kids start facing life practically and stop worrying about small problems.
Children who practice karate tend to have high tolerance levels and learn the importance of respect. They can handle criticism better; they appreciate the need to get better in whatever they do.
The rigors and physical body movements practiced in karate helps kids to actively keep their minds well occupied from the movements they learn.
Karate is also known to help build character and personality amongst kids. They find it relatively easy to say no to something they are not comfortable about. They are not easily swayed by peer pressure or affected by classroom stress.

Martial Arts to Fight Depression/Anxiety for All Ages


In our daily lives, at least once in a while we come across someone who apparently cannot cope with stress. Whether you might have noticed it or not, if you closely examine your own lives, you may probably find some day-to-day instances where anxiety got the better of you. Especially today, living life during a pandemic.. how can one not be stressed, anxious or depressed? Otherwise you possess a remarkable composure, because modern studies reveal that 77% of Americans suffer from physical symptoms of stress and 73% from psychological symptoms.

Stress, Depression and Anxiety: Why You Need to Fight It

Modern surveys indicate a sharp increase in the societal stress factors – workplace pressure, financial problems, health, relationships, sleep deprivation and parenting are some of the top stress factors among adults. Things are not very easygoing for children as well. Competitive atmosphere, study stress, bullying, lack of confidence and peer pressure are some of the major stress factors among kids.

Stress, when constantly experienced, turns to anxiety, and begins to be triggered at vague or trivial reasons as well. Stress and anxiety can also manifest in the form of clinical depression. In whichever phase you find yourselves in, it is important to know that it is not a very happy place to be, even if you might dismiss it as quite a normal part of your daily life. Stress, anxiety and depression can lead to disruption of personal and professional lives, inability to balance work and home, alienation, isolation, sleeplessness and physical impacts.

Fighting Depression and Anxiety: Martial Arts for Stress Relief

When it comes to stress, anxiety and depression, the enemy is almost always within you. In fact, 90% of depression, anxiety and worry come not from external factors that we already pointed out, but from our own inability to cope with them. The hurdles may be anything: lack of health, lack of confidence, lack of socialization skills and so on.

The aim of martial arts is not to vanquish the enemy, but to end the enmity between you and your foe. Different martial arts can help you to overcome your personal drawbacks and limitations. Martial arts can enhance your health, fitness, physical strength, social skills and naturally your confidence level. All these equip you to do better in whichever situation you find yourselves in.

Martial arts also helps directly to calm your mind. Meditation, breath regulation, rhythmic movements, concentration and mind focus are part of many martial arts. All these can shift your focus from negative thoughts and fill your mind with positive energy.
