Top notch training from a man who knows what he is talking about.
Great guys to train with, friendly atmosphere, just pure quality and this from a guy who trained at the source in Brazil.
Go train at ICON.

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

Take Aways Fear’s Greatest Power!

FEAR

 

It’s the no.1 obstacle that stops so many achieving their potential.  I see this so much here at Icon BJJ Norwich, when people come to talk about making a change in their lives.

 

Fear of failure, of success, of what others think, of being inadequate.

 

Plus the dreaded imposter syndrome!  Where you feel you aren’t good enough and others will find out.

 

The thing with fear is that we don’t really know what it is!  Is it even real?  Because, most of the things we’re all so afraid of never turn out to be what we were afraid of anyway.  We think this may happen, or that, but it never really comes to pass the way we feared it would.

 

There’s a saying that fear is just F = Future E = Events A = Appearing R = Real.  Not actually being real.

 

“Fears greatest power is time” – Grant Cardone

 

Grant also says that the best way to kill fear is take away it’s greatest power over you, TIME!

 

The longer you dwell on something the more the fear builds up..  “ I need to think this over”, “I’ll wait until things calm done”,  “I’ll wait until I feel more confident”.

 

All of those things feed the fear with it’s greatest power = TIME.

 

So, STOP!  Don’t wait, if something makes you feel fear, TAKE ACTION.  Make the call, Take The Trip, Ask the question, Own up.

 

You’ll find you can kill fear, with action.

 

At Icon BJJ Norwich Martial Arts, we structure a beginner programme of learning to do just that, focus on action with a step by step blue print, rather than wait for things to happen on their own.

 

Martial arts can be a scary thing to start, but it has a profound impact of peoples lives, with health, fitness and confidence benefits.  So don’t be afraid, take fast action and make a change.
