What is martial arts focus? Martial artists are able achieve amazing feats in their art and in life. This is due to the self-discipline they develop over years of practice and training.
Grandmaster Masaaki Hatsumi relates this focus to the traditional ninjutsu technique of throwing weapons:
“For thrown weapons, the mind must act as a kind of radar. Even if the target moves, as long as this ‘mental radar’ is operating properly, the target’s motion is followed perfectly.”
Develop your mental radar and your martial arts focus
How does one develop that mental radar? A martial artist must develop the awareness of their surroundings in order to react properly to the situation at hand.
Your martial arts focus can help you to achieve success by keeping your “mental radar” on your goals in life; whether it is becoming a martial arts master or getting that promotion at work. Students at Quest Martial Arts have discovered the secrets to maintaining focus on that goal.
Adults, what are some goals that are on your mental radar? Have you been able to keep your target in your mind or have you found yourself getting off track?
Parents, how would awareness and goal-setting help your child? Are they able to follow-through on the things they set their mind to?
As Grandmaster Masaaki Hatsumi says, “the mind must act as a kind of radar”. At Quest Martial Arts, we can help you learn how to perfect your radar and take advantage of the martial arts focus of a black belt.
