Reduce Anxiety, Build Confidence, Improve Self-Control
Conflict and aggression have much more to do with ourselves than with others. The battles in our outer world will always tend to reflect those of our internal world. For centuries, Martial Arts have taught students that the best fight is the one that never happens. It teaches that self-awareness, a positive mindset, and coping with stressful situations are essential to controlling emotions, conquering fears, and avoiding conflict.

Harness Anger & Frustration
Anger supplies us with the energy to meet dangerous situations successfully. However, frustration can lead to anger, anger leads to rage, and rage leads to uncontrolled aggression, physical or verbal, upon another person, or if turned inwards upon yourself in a self-destructive manner. Therefore, recognizing these emotions (in ourselves & others ) and managing emotions is a fundamental tenet of our self-protection system.
