Ahh relationships…. Maintaining healthy relationships with friends, family members, boyfriends or girlfriends are very important. For a Martial Artist this can be a bit of a struggle. This is especially true when the relationship is with someone who is not involved in Martial Arts. It may be difficult for them to understand the lifestyle.
They might not understand why you are not allowed to drink alcohol and are so irritable because of the weight cut for your upcoming fight. They might even get worked up because it seems that your training sessions are more important than your relationship with them. Most beginner Martial Artists begin to see who truly cares and supports them and sometimes they may lose friends in the process.
This section is for posting do’s and don’ts of relationships, helpful tips on how to maintain them and experiences that fighters may want to share with others to provide guidance on sustaining those relationships. The categories here are: Dating Teammates, Family & Friends, New People and Sexuality.
Make sure your posts include the proper category!
