You’ve probably heard the saying that refers to the journey being more important – and more enjoyable – than the destination. Think about that for a moment, and in particular try and relate it to learning martial arts in Wigston.
When you think about martial arts in any form, it is quite natural to think of the end result. You’ll think about the skills you could have in the future. You’ll think about how you might look and behave when practising martial arts. The last thing you will typically think about is the journey.
And yet surely this is the most important part of the whole thing. The first moment of your journey begins when you attend your first martial arts class. The final one – if there really is one – takes place when you realise you have become a master in martial arts. Yet even if you do eventually gain your black belt, you will still continue to learn long after that. You can learn from other people and from yourself in more ways than you might imagine.
So you have to consider what comes in between. You have to think about everything you do in martial arts. Wigston classes are filled with people all on their own individual journeys, all learning what is required of them to get to where they want to be. Could you join them?
There are all kinds of reasons why you might like to try martial arts. The main reason though is to make yourself a better person in some way. Regardless of the specific reason, this will be behind it somehow. So keep that in mind and remember that the journey is the most important element of learning and mastering martial arts. If you can remember that, you will be satisfied with the entire experience
