Get Good – Martial Arts
How long does it take to get good?
Like most questions, there isn’t a definitive answer to “how long does it take to get good?” at martial arts or anything for that matter.
My stock answer to the “how many” question is to smile and say “Yes”.
That usually gets a strange look, and then I’ll explain. Is training 1 year good? Yes. Is training 2 years better? Yes. Is training 3 years better still? YES!
But there are certain things we need to be aware of ….
#1 – The number of years that you train doesn’t guarantee anything. You can train for 5 years and have terrible fundamentals and mechanics and you train for 1 year and have great fundamentals and mechanics. Quality training always wins – So the key is ‘dedication’ to what you’re doing each time you train. If you do this you will grow stronger, healthier, and more alive and you will “Get Good”.
