We all get a bit of motivation from time to time to boost our martial arts training and it works for a while. For a couple weeks maybe even a month or two you're pumped and training and living the martial arts life. Then the crash comes, something else grabs your attention and a day comes when you make a decision to skip your training and BAM! Before you know it, another year is on the sunrise.
The only way to get the most out of your martial arts training is by making training not just a hobby or a habit. It must become a requirement. Sounds good but, how do you do this? With 5 basic questions, what, why, how, where and when.
What do you want from your training? What is the purpose of your training? What are your options and which ones do you need to eliminate? Purpose gives you a clear direction to commit to. What's the value training gives you and how important is that value? Does the value contribute to your purpose?
Next is why? Why is this purpose and value important to you? Why is training something you want to do? The why reconfirms the what.
How are you going to go about your training? Weekly? Daily? Hourly? The how will also lead into the bonus of who. Who will be your mentor, your coach?
Where do you need to go to train and learn? Do you need to go to a specific school? Do you need to train outdoors sometimes? Do you need to travel to your mentor/coach?
Then, it's all about a matter of when. When are you going to go and do? If training is something you really want to do because you see the benefits you'll achieve from it then take as much time out of the when as you can. Eliminate time. Time will make you second guess, doubt and allow other distractions to grab your attention.
Follow this map and it will work for you. I know from my own personal experience. This is what I use not only for my training but for structuring everything in my life. It's the exact formula I teach my staff to do. It's about having a game plan that eliminates options, time and excuses.
You're what could change over time and it should as you're evolving in your practice. rework this formula about every 3 to 6 months and it'll serve as a great checkin with your training and your progress.
