Martial Arts and Mental Toughness

In Benefits of Martial Arts, Grandmaster DeMasco, National by SDSS

Martial Arts teaches mental toughness. You will hear martial arts instructors say it all the time: “A Black Belt is a White Belt who never quit.” This statement is absolutely true. Your journey to Black Belt will be challenging, humbling, and yes, it will probably involve some pain along the way. Not just physical pain, either. It will build in you a mental toughness that will transform your character and make you a much stronger person.
