Do you haveThe Heart of a Warrior
Statistics show that of the 10,000 people who will join a traditional Martial Arts school, only one will achieve the rank of Black Belt. Martial Arts and the Martial way is a lifelong journey which promotes health, longevity, and inner peace. Never is the final destination the ultimate goal, rather it is the journey that takes us there. It is on this journey that we learn all we know; the final goal should never come.
The skills of Martial Arts were originally developed under stress, duress, and life-or-death situations. These skills have been passed down through generations and constantly honed. In modern times, Martial Arts is used in everyday life helping us to communicate on all levels, whether hostile or friendly.
The heart of a warrior is attained by hard work, dedication, and perseverance and will provide lifelong skills that prove extremely useful. The hardest part of it all is starting, the easiest thing to do is quit. At West Coast Martial Arts in Sarasota, we provide a positive environment that allows you to stay the course to get the lifelong benefits. We look forward to meeting you and helping you on your journey.
