Competing in tournaments is a great way to evaluate your skills as a martial artist. One of the great reasons for competing is knowing all how much your hard work and training has paid off. Knowing that you are one of the best martial artists in your competition.
Sparring (Point fighting and sport MMA) at tournaments takes personal grit and endurance. You must learn to develop a strong mind and body in order to even be competitive. We teach our students that watching your competitors is a great opportunity to learn, by seeing what others do right and wrong. Then we capitalize on that new-found knowledge to build a winning strategy.
Being a part of a competitive sports team is all about goal setting, sportsmanship, and friendship. Cheering your teammates on as you wait for your turn to compete is all part of the tournament experience.
