I’ve never had anything turn out so differently than what I expected. I started martial arts training expecting to improve my coordination, flexibility, and stamina – which did happen. What I didn’t expect, was that martial arts would change me so much in other ways. Every day, I find myself using things I have learned in martial arts [pushing myself, focusing, not giving up, adjusting my approach to fit the situation, patience, trusting myself] to make my life work better. I used to avoid things that I was afraid of, and learning to face fear and move forward in spite of it, has had a huge positive impact in every aspect of my life. I’ve always been an anxious and shy person, but I have a lot more confidence now. I’m getting better performance reviews at work because I because I have become a better trainer, do more effective presentations, and speak up more at meetings. I find myself working on and improving things about myself that I had pretty much given up on ever changing.

I tried martial arts once before, and quit after only a few months. I see now that I picked the wrong program. The environment was not supportive, the training was not at all individualized, and after 4 months, the Sensei could not have told you my name. This experience has been completely different! This time, I’ve been training for almost five years, and plan to continue for many more.
