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

Starting martial arts after 35

Hey, ask Steve here. And Hey, so what are the three things that you need? If you’re looking to start martial

Arts after 35 years old?

Well, I’m not going to go over three things you need. I’m going to go for the

Three things. You don’t need. Two things you don’t need and the most important one on the end.

So the first one that you don’t, what’s the number one thing I don’t need

After fait five years old to start martial up,

We don’t need to be in great shape. You don’t need to look at home without I’m not very flexible. I’ve been sitting on the couch for a while. I’m literally stuck and just get stuck in our head. You know, we’re not ready. We’re not ready. When are you ever going to be ready? Because martial arts school class sessions program are designed to help you get, get in shape, to help you to get fit. Put you in a program, only teaches you skills, et cetera, et cetera, but works on your fitness, your flexibility. So don’t put off the idea. I’m not in good shape. So therefore I can’t stop. The number one thing you don’t need is to turn around to yourself and say, I’m not fit enough to

Start. Okay. Two what’s number two. Number

Two is the mind, the mindset, the belief in yourself, Steve, I don’t feel like a martial artist. I don’t feel like a warrior. I don’t have the confidence. When I walked through that door, I don’t believe in myself enough to go in. Do I need all those things first? No, because martial arts is designed. If it’s taught right there, it doesn’t just teach you the skillset help you get in shape, but it works on getting this in shape up here, works on this. That’s what you’re looking for. So once again, don’t let that put you off. Don’t let that stop you. The idea that, Hey, I’m just, I don’t feel confident enough. Everyone’s going to be better than me. I’m probably going to be the worst one last than excuse because everyone, especially if the martial art does beginner programs, everyone should be beginning. You’re not frozen in with sharks or et cetera, et cetera. And if we move to point number three, what’s the one thing that you do need. What’s the one thing you do need. When you start

A martial art over, over the age of 35, what are the number? One thing you need is the right place, the right coach, the right environment, and the right program to help you succeed. You don’t want somewhere where you go in and it just going to throw you in, in a den of wolves or to shark tank,

You want to make sure that the coach or the program, the school that you’re going to has eliminated those two things in the beginning for you already. They understand those two things. And if they do and you find a place that has number three,

Then go all in. Because

Imagine this, Hey, I want to start something. I want to get in shape it, but I want to be around a

Bunch of other people that don’t want to do it, man. Great.

Martial arts is fantastic. I don’t need to be in shape to start. I need to, I don’t need to be fully confident. I feel like a warrior to start. I just want to start as who I am because I’m here to develop me as a person and getting shape to get this in shape. My confidence, my self belief in myself,

Check.

And then in order to check those boxes, you need to find the right place, the right person, the person that gels with you, the person is going to help you. That’s going to take time for persons. That’s been where you are. Where’s been where you are. And it’s been at that point when I didn’t believe in himself and they’ve moved all their way forward. And if you can find that in your martial arts school, then the free elements you need over say five years of age, Hey man, Steve here, I’d love to help you. I’ve been there, which is why I’m saying it. Cause I’ve been, I’ve been out of shape. I’ve been totally with zero self-belief and I’ve built it up

To create this team here in Norridge of icon juicy team. But it’d be different because I just focus on bringing you in and becoming the Batman, becoming the worst fight or the best fighter in the world. We’re here to help you develop this along with your body skills and et cetera, et cetera. So man, if I can help you, I would love to help you. My name’s Steve county right here in noise.
