BJJ and MMA Success -
What Is Martial Arts?
Is it about fighting or is there more?
Is there another component to martial arts that makes it an art?
Or if someone teaches you how to fight, does that mean they are teaching you a martial art?
In the current sense of the word, a martial art teaches self defence but also involves a code of conduct. This code, in the form of rules that stipulate how a person is to act, is what separates a martial art from a fighting system.
Three tests for a martial art.
Test one – Physical Component
This includes increasing strength reaction
time, flexibility, and technical skill. This is the component we see on the
Test two – Psychological Component.
This is mental strength. The ability to be able to think under pressure and stress. To control your emotions.
Test three – Spiritual Component.
This is the real test of a martial arts academy. Comprises a code of conduct and a series of lessons delivered by an instructor to ensure that a student is a better person. It is the refinement of character.
The test for the consumer is if the instructor passes all three levels.
A Doctor Talks About Being Brain Fit For Martial Arts
Show notes for Dr Jenny Brockis, author of 'Brain Fit'.
Dr Jenny Brockis is the author of "Brain Fit - How Smarter Thinking Can Save Your Brain." She is a practising GP and a popular public speaker in the areas of brain performance in the corporate and sporting fields.
In this podcast we focus our attention on mental challenges and the importance of attitude in creating the highest performance possible in martial arts and sport in general.
Dr Brockis talks about 'emotional regulation' being the main method in controlling emotions which in turn create a winner or a survivor.
We discuss the internal dialogue needed by all successful athletes and even how to re-wire a negative mental pathway.
Understanding that often these negative mental pathways were established early in life and that it will take time and patience to override them, Dr Brockis explains how controlled internal dialogue and meditation can play such an import role in high levels of performance in any field of endeavour.
