Of the many physical pursuits available to today's man, the Martial Arts alone stand as the supreme quest for self-mastery. The strengthening of the body coupled with the disciplining of the mind as is practiced in the myriad forms and styles of martial practice, bring about untold heights of empowerment, self-confidence, and physical prowess.
While the overt expressions of the Martial Arts (fighting skills, attainment in physique, strength and speed), are indeed significant, there are many other subtle benefits to be gained from these practices; an increased ability to focus the mind and energies on any given task; a positive outlet for natural aggression and even work-related or personal stress; an increased level of energy; the inner peace and harmony which comes to a person as a result of these efforts; and the confidence that one experiences when they know that they are adequately prepared for any given situation.
