When most people hear martial arts, the first thoughts that pop off in their minds has to do with self-defense or physical combat, but while martial arts does involve those elements, that is not all there is to it. In fact, not many people are aware that the martial arts have cross-sector applications across various strata of life.
This is because martial arts is not just focused on the physical body, its primary place of importance is the mind which forms the basis for which every other thing in life happens.
One key area of life that martial arts training is vital in business. Very few people know that martial arts can give your business an advantage that diplomas from business school may never do.
What do you imagine makes for great business success? It is the skillset of the employees working there.
If we were to highlight a few, we would mention:
- The ability to spot opportunities
- The skill of hiring the right people (which requires good people knowledge)
- Having employees that are focused and committed
- Having employees that are fearlessness if needed
- Having employees that are determined
- Having the skill to process information speedily and make snap decisions at the blink of your eyes.
- A workforce that has grit and perseverance
- Team spirit
- Fighting spirit (don't let that sale slip away)
Yet nowhere in business school are you taught these things. But these are foundational elements of any martial arts training worth its salt.
Tokon Martial Arts Academy, a martial arts school I started alongside my wife, Sensei Christina Hinschberger came out from our over three decades expertise and has trained thousands of people in the physical and mental states of karate, helping them succeed in all areas of their lives.
Of course all employees should be physical and mental healthy so how about:
- Development of a flexible body which reduces fatigue and stress
- Training in self-confidence that can be applied to negotiation and business deals
- Exercises that train you on how to be adaptable
- Breathing exercises that help conserve energy
- Improved blood flow to the brain that helps you make split second decisions about people and ideas.
- Training in focus that helps you remain calm in high pressure situations.
I could go on and on, but these are only a minute fragment of things that you will pick up in a few sessions of martial arts training.
The business world is a very competitive one. You need all the tools you can get to stay on top of the game and martial arts training is one of the most important.
