Martial arts and meditation go hand in hand. After all, awareness and mindfulness are pillars of both practices, and each can improve the other. Historically, meditation has always been a part of martial arts practice as well.
If you’ve never explored the ways in which meditation can improve your martial arts practice, now is the time to give it a try. Meditating for just 10 to 20 minutes each day can have a big impact on your practice and your mental state.
Having trouble clearing your mind? Try listening to gentle music in a dark room. The fewer distractions, the better. Focus on your breathing, and gently push away any distracting thoughts. It may take a bit of practice, but it will get easier with time.
