I've been training with Icon around 3 weeks and i feel like I've found a second home (seriously.... I pretty much live there now). I was so nervous to start, especially as a woman, with no combat experience, in a male dominated environment; but the team and coaches are amazing, everyone is so encouraging, supportive and patient and it's just an awesome environment to stretch myself physically (both literally & figuratively) and mentally. Thanks Steve and all the guys and gals at Icon, you're an awesome bunch

MMA for self-discipline

Mixed martial arts or MMA is known to be the sport that helps the players to get themselves self-disciplined. Before we learn that how does MMA allows people to get self-discipline we need to know that what it actually is.

Understanding Self-discipline:

Self-discipline means awareness of one’s own self that is to understand how to control your impulses, desires, your emotions and keep them in check. It requires a lot of focus from one person actually to master it. It requires you to instead of just gaining short-lived happiness try to strive for something that is long-term and the desire to resist something short-lived takes a lot of effort from the person.

How to get self-disciplined?

The first thing that is going to help you positively is identifying your weakness, once you know that then you can try to conquer it. You don’t have to go head-on but take it slow, you will make mistakes, but it is okay. You are learning to control your desires for the bigger and better results that is your aim. Determining your goal and what you want to gain is the motivation that you require. Self-discipline doesn’t help you just for sport but also in the smallest things in your life can be made better if you apply this in your life.

How does MMA help?

● Step by step achievement:
Martial arts cannot be mastered overnight, it requires you to do a lot of hard work and that means doing your best to make sure that you keep your eye on the price the highest belt is the black belt and that is what needs to be achieved. This means you will go through lots of trial and error before you get to achieve the highest rank.
● Control is the key:
The basic key component of martial arts is the control; this means that anyone who has to get better at it will have to learn that. Martial arts is not a sport that wants you to dominate and overpower someone, but the key factor of winning any match is to make sure that you are aware of your surroundings and also focus on your opponent. This brings us down to the fact that you have to strategize and control your actions accordingly. And not just flip-flop your arms to force the hit and hurt someone.

Martial arts is one sport where if the instructor is helping you learn something, you have to say “yes sir,” even though you do not like it. Why? Because sometimes in life we face conditions where things are not according to our liking that is when we have to control our emotions and try to fix the situation to our best knowledge and where else you can learn how to control your feelings and hit at the right spot to win the game? Of course, you said right away martial arts. If you are interested, then you can always visit and be a part of the team at Norwich martial arts center.
