“Eat a balanced diet. Live a balanced lifestyle.” These are statements that are said to everyone in order to help them understand how to be healthy. But what actually is balance? At Quest Martial Arts Ann Arbor, we learn how to be balanced both physically and mentally.
“The really important thing to realize in budo is that technique alone is worthless if the man loses his equilibrium, his inner balance. If a man does not have some other major strength, it does not matter how far he develops his technical skill – he will be beaten in the end.”
Become Balanced at Quest Martial Arts Ann Arbor
In the above quote, Soke Masaaki Hatsumi Sensei says that technique alone is worthless. As a martial artist, we are striving to become our best self, not only in the moves that we learn for Ninjutsu but also at home, or at school, or at work. At Quest Martial Arts, we are learning that our mind and body are deeply connected and that we must grow one to help improve the other.
Parents, how can your child find better balance in their life? How can you help them discover the perfect ratio of seriousness and fun that can help them grow into happy, adjusted adults?
Adults, what times do you find yourself stuck in a loop of unproductive behavior? How can you form different habits to help you get that tricky task off your check list?
Quest Martial Arts Ann Arbor students become balanced individuals and leaders who are able to take on any challenge. The ninja is one who perseveres and develops an equilibrium in both mind and body; becoming skilled physically in the art, but also developing a strong mental fortitude. By building the connection between the mental and the physical, we can achieve anything!
