Martial Arts Can Help with Anger Management

Impassive meditating learn in martial arts by a young businessman paying no attention to crowd of screaming angry people.

There are millions of people in this country who have difficulty controlling their anger or who experience unexplained bursts of anger during the course of a normal day.  Unfortunately, this can cause serious problems for the individual. There is, of course, the danger that those people will cause harm to others as a result of their uncontrolled anger. However, the regular, intense states of frustration can also cause damage to that individual’s immune system and overall mental state.  These people, who are in need of anger management skills, may experience a tingling feeling across the body, heart palpitations, increased blood pressure, severe headaches, sinus pressure, and fatigue.

For some, anger results from feeling overwhelmed with various aspects of life.  When this is the case, stress reduction can greatly improve the person’s ability to control the outbursts of anger.

This is where martial arts training comes into play.  Because martial arts are workouts for the brain as well as for the body, the training can really help a person avoid- and overcome stress in life.

Breathing and Focusing Techniques  

In order to perform many of the martial arts movements correctly, a person has to be able to focus his or her thoughts.  Through intense focus and with the proper training, a small child can break a board with his or her own hand. Imagine then, what an adult could accomplish with the same abilities.  And, it’s not just about the board, but the ability to focus on a task without allowing outside forces to disrupt- or disturb you. This is what is needed in order to overcome the stresses of life, and much of that can be accomplished with the help of martial arts training.

Harnessing Emotions

Martial arts can also allow a safe outlet for anger.  It can teach a person to focus that anger, by using that power within the sparring ring or to execute a more powerful kick aimed at a training bag.  The idea is to learn to harness the anger and to focus it on an acceptable target. The physical exertion combined with the ability to work through these things in the dojo can provide a person more peace in other areas of life.

Martial arts is not anger management counseling, and we are not suggesting that it can be a direct substitute.  Rather, it may be beneficial to combine the two.
