Martial Arts Is So Much More Than Just A Fighting Art - Poem by Daya Nandan

Martial arts is so much more than just a fighting art
It strengthens one spiritually by connecting the soul and heart,
Martial arts does more than strengthening the mind, body and soul,
It teaches you discipline, lessons to keep emotions under control,

Anger, hate, sorrow and fear, emotions within meant to be kept at bay,
Courage, patients, persistence within one’s mind and soul each day
The art of fighting is so much more than just effective ways to kill,
It sharpens and enriches the human mind with each new learned skill,

The body’s anatomy and physiology, the mind’s psychology must be known
By a fighter in order for the perfect execution of a technique to be shown
Martial arts is a pursue of knowledge, many things that one must learn,
So the hidden swirling potential within gets drawn out to burn

A flame of great power starts within one’s heart and soul and mind,
That pushes every man to a breaking point so that improvement he will find,
Martial arts is more than the art combat or disarming a gun or knife,
Martial arts is food for the mind body and soul, martial arts is a way of life!
