Excelling in martial arts is challenging – it takes thousands of hours of practice and dedication encountering many difficulties along the way to developing new skill sets and advancing in belt ranks. Martial arts students will learn to view challenges as opportunities rather than obstacles, and through challenges they will grow and advance. Martial arts emphasize that it is not how many times you fall down but the number of times that you get up that is the best predictor of success.
Endurance training in Shobukan Martial Arts involves raising the body’s heart and respiration rate. This helps in boosting overall fitness and also improves the health of organs. A general fallacy is that, endurance training doesn’t build strength. But in fact there are a variety of endurance training exercises that will build strength. Endurance training helps improve daily lifestyle movement and makes it easier to carry out day-to-day tasks.
Muscle fatigue can result due to lactic acid build-ups while exercising. Shobukan Martial Arts training methods, including striking, blocking and body-weight exercises, are designed to get the body used to processing these lactic acid build-ups and fighting through them. Over time, students will be able to train longer and harder, and this increased muscular endurance will translate to every aspect of their training, both in and outside of the Martial Arts hall.
Increased endurance can prevent fatigue during sparring matches and, more important, athletes with better endurance tend to maintain proper technique longer, because of lack of muscular fatigue. In competition, endurance may be the difference in scoring that last point on an opponent. In testing, it could be the difference in a pass or a fail.
Shobukan Martial Arts Perth teachers will help children build their endurance and boost their stamina. Once a particular level of endurance training has been achieved, they will move up the ladder and include more complex and challenging training methods.
The ability to do intensive endurance training may vary from person to person, but the secret lies in doing your best and never quitting. Essentially, having the proper Martial Arts technique is always important, but endurance, speed and strength are also key components to be successful.
