Becoming more disciplined is at the heart of learning martial arts. Students must make the mental choice to demand something physically of their body, and get a specific result. This is what discipline is, doing what you MUST do, instead of just doing what you feel like doing. By practicing martial arts, students are able to get into the habit of pushing themselves and being structured in how they behave. This newfound discipline effortlessly translates into better performance at home, and improved grades in school.
