Martial Arts are the education we need in real life.
What is the real value of Martial Arts?
Why should somebody practice Martial Arts?
So many reasons. So many benefits.
So many of us are so devoted to the practice. We are even concerned about our kids following the path of Budo. We even recommend our friends and loved ones to start training. Some of us may have a Dojo or a style to recommend. Some are worried about what kind of learning we should recommend. What is good for me, or has been in the past is good for everybody? And what happens when someone we care about tells us that started trainning MMA?
But what do Martial Arts actually mean to us?
A sport? An opportunity to compete and win trophies?
A place to search for better health & fitness? Maybe is a little more fun than just weight lifting, right?
Can the practice of Martial Arts mean that I will adopt a cooler lifestyle?
Will I learn how to fight? Or, let's say, to defend myself? It is the same thing, right? No, it's not. Maybe I can learn both... at the same time.
Maybe a lot the above are true, or can be true.
But what about learning and practicing a set of values & principles that will help me in life?
Way more than a set of benefits
Martial Arts mean a way of conducting ourselves in our everyday lives, and they will inspire and empower us in every aspect of our lives.
We become better neighbours, professionals, workers, teachers, parents, sons, daughters, friends, brothers, sisters, roommates, etc.
We practice Martial Arts because we want to change the world and we know that this starts with ourselves. The Way of Budo takes us nearer to the best version of ourselves.
If everybody trained in Martial Arts the world would definitely be a much better place.
But any Martial Art?

Golden principles to empower us.
