Have you been looking for a way to ground yourself in an ever-accelerating world? Have you been searching for a self-defense training that emphasizes focus and self-confrontation rather than aggression? Have you been seeking an activity that will give you the confidence and self-respect you need to flourish?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then martial arts classes at Classical Martial Arts Centre - Renge Dojo are the solution. We offer a wide range of martial arts training for young and old alike. Energize yourself and find inner balance at Toronto’s top martial arts training centre.
It’s well known that karate-do is a great way to teach your children self-defense and get them active in a fun, engaging environment. But one of the best reasons for signing your child up for karate-do is that it builds character. It forces children to find ways to improve themselves. It helps children build self-confidence, self-reliance, and self-discipline. In a world that seems to give children everything they ask for, karate-do’s focus on self-mastery might be the most important part of the activity.
After all, why do we put our children in school? Is to have them merely regurgitate the words that the teacher has told them? No. We put children in school to teach them how to think, how to interact with others, and how to become good, well-balanced people. Karate-do at Classical Martial Arts Centre - Renge Dojo is the perfect complement to school because not only does it promote the skills children need to thrive, it also improves concentration, memory, problem-solving, and attention span.
In many ways, karate-do is great for adults for the same reasons. Self-discipline, self-reliance, and self-confidence are character traits that can benefit everyone. So even though adults have to deal with very different problems than children, the effects of turning inward and finding balance can dramatically improve how adults respond to problems.
And when it comes to fitness that emphasizes the connection of the mind and body, there’s nothing better. Karate-do is not a trip to the gym. There is no pressure to look as good as the guy or girl on the machine next to you. It’s all about working on yourself. It’s about pushing your own boundaries and challenging yourself in a supportive, respectful environment.
Tai Chi Chuan, Chi Gung, and Ba Gwa Chang at Classical Martial Arts Centre - Renge Dojo
Whereas karate-do emphasizes quick striking motions, tai chi chuan, ba gwa chang, chi gung, emphasize the cultivation of slow motions and absolute precision. They are martial arts practices that emphasize one’s own internal energy, the circulation of power within the body. Although self-defense is still emphasized in each of these practices, the focus is more on the control of one’s own body. But more than ‘control’ over the body, these practices aim to intertwine the mind and the body.
The result is a way to find inner balance, relaxation, and improved breathing. The stresses of everyday life are overwhelming for everybody. If you feel like you’re losing grip on yourself or the world around you, consider signing up from tai chi chuan, ba gwa chang, or chi gung classes at Classical Martial Arts Centre - Renge Dojo in Toronto.
