Self-control is an important tenet of the Martial Arts.  In the dojo it keeps us safe as we practice our skills in a controlled environment where everyone works as partners, not opponents.  Without self-control, many students would not last long – they would get discouraged as more experienced or bigger and stronger students would overpower them versus support and encourage them.

Outside of the dojo, we practice self-control on a daily basis.  We monitor our words, our emotions, our food and beverage consumption, our actions and so much more.  Without self-control, we would all be loose cannons.  Self-control gives you power over your actions and decisions.  It gives you the ability to make good decisions, stick to them and follow through to achieve goals and future successes.

We resist temptations through self-control, therefore leading a healthier lifestyle.  It leads us to feel empowered, confident and have higher self esteem.  The key to self-control is to realize just how significant a virtue it really is.  Becoming aware of your behaviors and thought processes will help identify where greater self-control would be helpful, and once identified, stick with it. Be true to your decisions and fulfill these life changing promises you have made to better yourself and be there for others.
