What is martial arts world?

Martial Arts World is the home of life champions. It is an institution of self-improvement. We practice Action Philosophy sincerely to improve ourselves.Practicing martial arts without philosophy is the same as street gang fighting — very animalistic; it develops a poor mindset and promotes violence, which pollutes our society. Therefore, we emphasize the wise practice of action philosophy. By practicing martial arts with philosophy, you will develop a successful mindset and you can maximize your potential. You will be healthier, wiser, more confident, wealthier, and happier. Martial Arts World philosophy is The 5 Pillars of True Success , which are the foundation of a truly successful life based on the natural principles of Harmony and Balance. The 5 Pillars of True Success are:

  1. Physical success: Being healthier.
  2. Mental success: Being wiser.
  3. Moral success: Being more confident.
  4. Financial success: Being wealthier.
  5. Life success: Being happier.

The 5 Pillars of True Success bring harmony and balance into your life to create a successful future. We also practice The 5 Powers of Self-Defense . Many people have painful lives because they don’t know how to defend themselves from the 5 major life-threatening attacks. Therefore, we practice physical, mental, moral, financial, and life self-defense.

  1. Physical self-defense: Defending yourself from physical attacks.
  2. Mental self-defense: Defending yourself from verbal attacks.
  3. Moral self-defense: Defending yourself from self-attacks.
  4. Financial self-defense: Defending yourself from financial attacks.
  5. Life self-defense: Defending yourself from life attacks.

The 5 Powers of Self-Defense will give you confidence and personal freedom.If you have ordinary habits, you will be ordinary; if you have successful habits, you will be successful. If you don’t develop The 5 Pillars of True Success and The 5 Powers of Self-defense as habits, you will get only temporary benefits, so we practice The Top 10 Successful Habits:

  • 1.Think like successful people: You will open the door to opportunities.
  • 2.Look like successful people: You will have the right direction.
