Of course learning a martial art such as Wing Tsun can help you feel more self assured and confident in the event of being faced with physical confrontation, but there are several other indirect benefits form enrolling and learning the art of Wing Tsun in Dulwich.
What are the other advantages of Wing Tsun?
More and more of us now lead sedentary lifestyles, shackled to desks for the majority of the week. It is increasingly important that we integrate some physical activity in our free time in order to improve our health and counteract the harm we cause by sitting down all day.
As opposed to joining a football or rugby team, for example, where others are depending on you, you can be a bit more self indulgent when it comes to Wing Tsun, you can go at your own speed with no pressure. It’s being part of a family who support and grow with each other but also having independent growth and goals.
The goal is to learn some self defence moves, but on your way to achieving that you will improve your physical health, which will also impact positively on your mental state, and you might just make a few friends on the way.
There is a diverse range of people who attend the Wing Tsun Dulwich gym, as people of all ages, backgrounds and physical abilities are welcomed through their doors. In addition to the obvious health benefits and mastering new defensive skills, the social aspect of mingling with like minded people from various different walks of life, can only broaden your horizons and have a positive impact on your mental state too.
Wing Tsun - the ultimate insurance policy
Just like the home or car insurance we fork out for every year, we hope it’s never required. The same can be said for Wing Tsun. Think of it as the ultimate insurance policy, to help instil a sense of self confidence for if the unthinkable happens and you need to deploy some moves. However, unlike the car and home insurance, there are plenty of additional residual benefits from enrolling - introducing some discipline into your life can never be a bad thing, as well as increasing your confidence and creating an opportunity to meet new people.
