As a martial artist – whether you realize it or not – you build your confidence every time you show up to your classes. Just bowing and stepping into your dojo takes courage and every time you do it, you get stronger.
Each time we face our fear, we gain strength, courage and confidence in the doing…”
By training in the martial arts, you know you can handle anything that comes your way, because you expose yourself to challenging situations, trying new things, and perform at your best. You are building or “conditioning” your confidence, making it stronger with every class. You are training yourself to focus and perform under pressure, no matter what the situation may be that is causing the pressure.
